Very nice board..
Michael Ewer, Amazon
25 March 2013
Summary: Board is very nice and worked perfect. Bios looks ancient as hell though, and I do not like the placement of the sata plugs in compared to my new board. However works like it is supposed to and I would buy it again if need be.
Summary: This motherboard definitively exceeds the bang for the buck value. It works flawlessly for my HTPC. I have had it for about a year now and haven't had to open the hood except for cleaning. I built the HTPC for my daughter because her x-box burnt up due to the products lack of cooling (very common, look it up) . She wanted another x-box but I told her I would build her something better. Boy is it better.
Used this for a Hackintosh, great value, great performer

Summary: I used this as part of my Hackintosh build, and it's been a solid performer since the Feb '12. I also used it to run Win7, and it runs both just fine. I recommend this. With the I5-2500K CPU, the on board graphics work great in Win7. UPDATE: Even though this board is probably considered "outdated" since HASWELL is the latest and greatest, if you're on a budget and can still get these, you'll be getting a great PC for a real deal.
Summary: So far so good. I installed this board in a new build with 16mb of ram and an I7 2600 processor. The board installed easily and performed as promised. I had no problems with the bios as others have indicated in their reviews. For the price I feel the motherboard is a very good value. My only dissapointment was that I ordered a case with a USB 3.0 front connection and this board did not support it.
Summary: This board has a good set of features, especially for the price. The Z68 chipset is a major plus, and, with the most recent bios, this board supports the newest Ivy Bridge processors from Intel as well as Sandy Bridge. It has ample ports and expansion slots for a small system. I didn't use the over-clocking capabilities, but they appear to be robust and provide reasonable insight into the operation of system components, ranging from CPU temperatures to memory voltages.
Summary: Got this MOBO For my first build and have no luck. After 3 days trying, i was not able to make it work. Could`nt trust this brand anymore. Got the message `BOOT DISC FAILURE` and it froze forever. Don`t BUY it. AMAZON Return is really EASY, Best online store.
Summary: First time computer builder here and wow this couldnt have made it any easier for me to install this thing. Everything on it is labeled well and the manual instructions are a piece of cake to follow!
Summary: I've been running my new PC for a few weeks now using this motherboard, and everything has worked very well. I am utilizing the on-board video (both VGA & DVI) as well as the 6Gbps SATA and USB slots, and everything worked as expected. I did have to update a few of the drivers from the version delivered on the CD for some of the USB ports to work with Win7 Pro 64-bit, but otherwise this has worked flawlessly.
