Wonderful Intel desktop PC board with some flaws but great workhorse.
31 October 2013
Summary: Bought a brand new one years ago when Windows XP and SATA first came out. After replacing the board twice, all due to it not being able to boot up. I suspect the cause being the capacitors near the CPU. Replacing the board wholesale is far more economical time-wise and effort-wise. One of the best features of this board is the Intel utility that lets you monitor the power supply voltages and the temperatures at the CPU and two zones on the board.
I was unable to use this product and I am still looking for a good one.

D865GBF replaces D875 for a nice compatible repair
3 November 2012
Summary: I bought this board to replace my failed Intel D875 motherboard, which was always a pain for me to use. The D865 is imperceptibly slower but far more compatible with drivers. The board went in smoothly, the new drivers all installed properly, and my computer functioned with no loss of data and no time consuming setup. The performance is adequate for my purposes.
Summary: shipping was slow and one of the capisitors was broken lose from the board. We replaced it and was able to use board anyway. Wil probably use company again anyway. Good pricing on hard to find parts.
