Summary: BIOS is old, unable to access Core 2 Duo CPU..... Had to install older P4 CPU, flash BIOS, then install Core 2 Duo. Asus should get their head out of the sand. They print that the MB can take Core 2 Duo, but they don't mention that you have to update the BIOS to make things work! Dumbbells. The CPU Cooler can be no larger than 92mm x 92mm due to cooling cage that surrounds the CPU. Other than this stupidness, the board is great.
