It would be great if it worked.

William P. Woodall, Amazon
14 March 2013
  • Summary: This is hands-down the best-looking motherboard I've ever seen. Great packaging, good layout, easy to read and see where everything goes. Unfortunately, that doesn't quite cut the mustard. It does have to work, and this one won't.

Worked great

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: This board worked great. I chose this particular board it because it was still compatible with Server 2003 and the drivers loaded no problem on the SBS2003 server that I had to upgrade. Building this server out made me wish I was using it for myself.

Great motherboard - but beware of bad BIOS

Bob's Your Uncle, Amazon
2 June 2012
  • Summary: Overall a great motherboard and I've been very pleased with it for the past year. The only negative I have is upgrading to the 2009 BIOS bricked the ability to use any LSI storage controllers - a big problem when you've used for over a year happily and now can't boot.

Heinerundsonstkeiner, Amazon
14 April 2014
  • Summary: Wie schon im Titel steht habe ich das Board als WHD bestellt. Leider funktionierte es nicht und die Status LED's wiesen auf eine Fehlfunktion des Prozessors hin.

Qualité au rendez-vous

Vlad, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: Montage plug and play. Bios efi aisé. Chipset 206 impressionnant avec Intel Rapid Storage pour RAID post installation OS. Petit bémol, le pdf du mode d'emploi. Pas de liens internes entre chapitres et textes correspondants. Il faut tout faire en ctrl+F.

Sehr gutes Workstation Board!

Prometeus, Amazon
