Summary: Thia mobo replaced a failing mobo of the same type in an Alienware computer. The swap-over was easy and the mobo worked with no issues. I used the extra memory cooling devises included with the kit to keep it running cooler. This is a very robust mobo and came with several extra goodies; memory cooler and a wifi antenna to mention a couple. My only dislike would be the price, but you get what you pay for if your looking for a high end mobo.

The motherbaord an IDE port and many SATA ports which was very useful as i went from using an old IDE hardrive to a SATA hardrive. The IDE and SATA ports are also placed conveniantly on the sides allowing air to flow freely throughout the machine. With this intact the motherboard stays below 45C. I do have 2 other fans on the machine, one on the back and the other on the front. ...
