Summary: got the board and mounted my CPU. everthing was great for about 5 minutes. The computer shop I took it to tells me my CPU, RAM, VIDEO card and PSU are all toast because the board was defective. 1200 dollars down the drain. thanks alot is toast now and the board was the cause. I have been building computers for 15 years now.
Summary: One year later, the two ram slots nearest the CPU are dead. If any stick of RAM is plugged into either of those two slots, it will not POST. Ran fine for the first year, but I really expected it to last longer than this. Tried upating the BIOS and everything, no dice. Steer clear of this board.
Summary: UP-DATE: 6-28-2013 This review concerns Amazon. The shipping was on time, but the packaging was horrible. I ordered another new board with an I7. The board had been a returned item as evidenced by Thermal Paste and after removing processor cover noticed at least 10 pins bent or broke. This is not the first time this has been noted by other customers.
Summary: Nach einem Monat war es kaputt und ich habe es zurück geschickt. In einer Woche kam es zurück in gleicher Verfassung. Es wurde nichts repariert oder getan. Die haben dort einfach nichts unternommen und mir den gleichen Mainboard geschickt. Ich kann daher diesen Kauf auf keinen Fall empfehlen!
