Good board for beginners, terrible lifespan, aging chipset
3 January 2008
Summary: This board was great when I first built a desktop. The chipset was a good combo for low-speed emulated disk access, thanks to the cheap ICH8 chipset, and the P965 was decent for dual channel RAM. The board overclocked well, and lasted for a while. My board died after 1 year, and left me in the dust, because it was out of warranty, and the board is no longer manufactured to revision 1.0 specs.
