Summary: I bought this board for a smaller footprint PC, Windows 7 Pro 64, and ALL the features that come with RAID. Installed 2x2Gb 1600 ram, no problems. Installed 2 HD in raid and 2 SSD in raid (yeah, crazy!). After some tweaking in the Raid, super fast boots, speedy Photoshop editing, great performance, nothing unusual like some of the previous comments. I'd recommend this to anyone using a socket 1156.
Summary: First start up. Very first note on the top screen: This motherboard support HDD and optical drives only. - Pay attention there is FDD controller on board. Second: 4DDR3-2200 suppose to take 1600 but it did not. I changed in BIOS settings for RAM on "Profile1" and it shown 1600MHz but it did not take it. PC simply did not want to turn on until I changed RAM settings to Automatic mode and it show 1300 (means I wasted money buying RAM 1600).
Summary: This motherboard works great and is easy to install. I paired this with an Intel i3-540 CPU. Windows XP runs great on this board. Just be sure to understand this is a micro-ATX board but should work in regular ATX cases (it did in mine). Unless you need a micro-ATX board I recommend a full ATX board. I haven't tried installing any expansion cards but all of the motherboard connectors where accessable and easy to hook-up.
Summary: Ordered on 6th feb, left Memphis TN on 8th, reached Miami FL feb 10 with free standard shipping from amazon and then I got it in Trinidad 2 days later via a skybox. The motherboard was the only item ordered and it came in a slightly bigger box with brown paper padding on the outer edges, I uploaded a pic of it here. The board worked as soon as I powered it on.
