Summary: First build was perfect and still is with everyday use. Second board setup perfectly, but killed itself after a week. Had to RMA. Third board setup perfectly but killed itself after 4 months. I will not bother with Intel warranty but will consider it a lesson learned.
Pros: Great little board if it stays working
Cons: The only board that will kill itself just sitting there.
Summary: For a tech company Intel has the least transparent, highest hassle support known to man. I've been at getting a replacement for two weeks and still haven't gotten any indication of when that might happen. If your product fails just buy a new one.
Pros: Great concept. When it worked it worked correctly.
Cons: Newegg walked away from any responsibility after 30 days. I understand that, its part of the deal. Intel might have the worst customer service in the world
Summary: THIS IS MY FIRST REVIEW .BOUGHT A LOTS OF STUFF ON NEWEGG - NO PROBLEMS GREAT PRICES. VERY FEW RMAS NOW I HAVE TO PAY SECOND TIME FOR SHIPPING IT BACK. P.S. WHOEVER STILL WANTS TO BUY THIS - GOOD LUCK PLAYING LOTTERY.
Pros: NONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cons: BUILDING COMPUTERS FOR 20 YEARS NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS ! FIRST ONE - DOA AND THEN SECOND ONE DOA THE ONLY THING WORKING IS ANNOYING GREEN LIGHT ON THE BOARD - NO VIDEO NO BEEPING SOUNDS - I GUESS YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR BUT INTEL ??? STAY AWAY FROM THIS PIECE OF JUNK !!!!!!!
Summary: What is going on here? I purchased 2 of these boards late last year; both are still working just fine. Now I'm trying to build a "Hot Spare" and after THREE attempts, I still cannot get a working motherboard.
Pros: I STILL cannot get a working spare!
Cons: I just received my 3rd consecutive DOA! There is not a lot to do when testing this board. I tried a different power supply and a different memory DIMM, but still no video. My PCI bios tester displays a code of 2A
Summary: Not all the peripherals on board would get the proper driver with the disk that it came in when installed under WinXP x32, and then when installed under WinXP x64, the driver says platform not supported. Intel sure has a loser with this one, I returned this board promptly for a refund.
