Summary: Great mother board for a Home Theater project , this become our movies storage PC we added a 2TB hard disk and storage capacity for over 1,000 movies with Bluray quality, also comes with High definition HDMI port to connect direct to large LED TV and comes with 7.1 Optical digital audio for nice...
Summary: i wish it has XP 32bit drivers and windows 7 & 8 x64 drivers i have tested the board with 16gb of ram and linux and it works as a server but i some times need a XP box and i wish i can use 16gb of ram in windows :)
Summary: Intel is no longer supporting this motherboard. We bought 3 of them because of problems we were having. Unfortunately, our problems are now worse. We are going to have to do more research and find out what will work.
Summary: This board+processor combo is useful only as standalone server. This doesn't have drivers that support windows 8, so metro apps always crash. Also, even though the processor is 64 bit, there are not 64 bit graphics drivers, so you will be left with only basic video adapter in any 64 bit OS.
Summary: The Intel D2700DC motherboard was effortless to install. I used it to upgrade an old Dell PC, so I reused the case, power supply, DVD drive, hard drive and wireless card. The board is rock solid and the drivers installed as they should.
Summary: I wish I had read the reviews and had done a little better job of researching before I bought this board. There is no graphics support for 64bit operating systems and now Intel has removed the support page for it from their site, so you can't download any drivers for this board.
Summary: As of the 29th of May 2012, there is no proper linux support for the on board graphics for this motherboard. There's a driver being developed currently but it doesn't support all the features of the on board graphics.
Summary: This is a great little board but has its limits. It is power friendly, has no CPU fan (good for HTPC), and runs cool (so you can keep it inside an entertainment center without worry of overheating). There are no video drivers for Win 7/Vista/XP/WHS 2011 64bit which is an annoyance.
Excerpt: Собрал в корпусе inwin с БП на 60 Ватт, 4гб ddr-3 оперативки, SSD диск на 60 гиг. Абсолютно бесшумен, слегка греется. Спокойно тянет одновременно хостинг блога на wordpress, сервер майнкрафт на 4-5 чел, тимспик на 30 чел, раздачу фильмов в домашнюю сеть с внешнего диска.
Pros: Тихая, мощная (2 ядра с HT - получается почти 4), низкое энергопотребление (зависит от БП)
Cons: Игнор со стороны intel своего собственного продукта - видать, из-за мощности конкурирует с более дорогими. Официальные драйвера только под win7x32. Для большей части компонентов не беда, ибо есть от производителей, но видео чисто интеловское, соответственно, посмотреть, например HD-video возможно...
