Summary: The board came quickly and left no doubt in its genuity. Packed properly etc. However, when I was installing the board, my scredriver slipped and scatched it. In fact, it cut through some vital paths rendering the board inoperable.
Summary: Originally had an ECS G31T-M motherboard, a budget model with good performance and a few quirks. Used heavily with 3D games and a heat-producing graphics card in a not well-ventilated case, the ECS board gave out after about 5 or 6 years.
Summary: Intel inside - classic - cheap - many bios options - worked 1st boot - one of my favorite boards when building a pc that's mainly used for web surfing and email this is not a gaming board - very solid and dependable
Summary: When my old motherboard died, finding good options for my Core2 Quad Q6700 was difficult. I've never used Intel motherboards before. Couldn't beat the price for a brand new board with enough expansion options. Documentation was well done. I'd buy another one of these if I needed one.
Summary: This board is no longer supported by Intel, but it makes a good drop-in replacement for appropriate machines. The devil is in the details - our front panel audio connectors are only hack-and-solder adaptable to this board - but our old 6600 quad core duo processor and 667 MHz memory (circa 2008)...
Summary: Being at the cutting edge of computers can be expensive. Being TOO far behind can be frustrating in terms of performance. This board hits a nice middle point in terms of giving very solid performance for a reasonable price.
