Summary: This is a nice motherboard. I put a used e8600 core 2 duo, 8gb of crucial memory, 1tb wd blue, sapphire radeon hd6570, syba pci-e usb 3 controller card, 650 watt psu and windows 7 home. I had everything except this and the cpu. I built it for my 7 year old grandson to play games on, and for me to record tv using an hd home run prime. everything works great. The only thing I didn't like is no i/o shield.
Summary: Very good product, fast board, with considerable good bus, accepts all 775 negatives: few pci slots, no wi-fi, and has only one entrance rj45 network, but even so I'm satisfied, I recommend to everyone.
Summary: using this board for just about 1 month, no issues thus far, hope it continue that way, had to upgrade the bios so it could recognize the cpu and memory but its running stable so far, also great shipping
Summary: Hmm this mobo has proved to be very fast and reliable. Setup was fast and easy. It supports a large range of processors and holds a good maximum ram. Very good price. Boots up fast. What do ya got to lose.
Summary: This board is a great buy. I bought this with a new Intel Core 2 Duo chip and they've been perfect together. I actually did all my upgrades to accommodate my purchase of a GIGABYTE GeForce 8800GT 512MB OC that supported PCI-Express 2.0. The board itself is nicely designed, with plenty of SATA slots and loads of speed and functions. Unlike the other reviewer, I've only had one of these and it's been perfect without any problems.
Works well with ATI crossfire for an 'older' gaming rig

Summary: *edit* I promised to re-instate the mising star if I found that the motherboard was not the cause of the wierd start up problem, and so having found a loose wire to the 8 pin EATX12v connector that now tight cures the problem, the full five stars can be given. This was chosen to replace an Asus P5K motherboard that theoretically supported ATI crossfire, as it had 2 PCIe slots - but the P5K would run the second slot at 2X instead of 8 or 16X, so frankly the crossfire...
Summary: Bought for my son, who is doing Computer Science at uni. He is very pleased with it. It was easy to replace the original motherboard in the case. Did need re-ordering the add-on boards (graphics, additional network, etc.). Uses a audio daughter board, that allows you to create a virtual configeration, as you can define what you have plugged in.
