Summary: Bought this to replace a broken eVGA 750i SLI FTW. Talk about a downgrade, but 775 motherboards are hard to find in these troubled times. Paid $50 with free 2-day shipping under Prime. PRO's: Inexpensive and works as advertised, which is all I was asking for given that it's 2013. No performance issues. Suspends properly in Ubuntu 14.04. CON's: Incredibly slow start-up.
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: 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) work fine in it. Be sure to note that this is a microATX board, not an ATX board.
Summary: installed board with stand offs and esd precautions and bois atempted to start and failed. flashed bios under intels instructions. troubleshooting with card tester indicates bad bios chip and cpu tester indicates other issues with board.
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. What kind of product is this if it can't withstand being handled by an idiot?!... Otherwise.... if you are not one, buy with confidence.
Summary: Used this motherboard as a replacement for an older model that used slightly older equipment. It worked great and tested fine on burn-in tests. The owner of the system I was working on said his system is running better than it ever has, which leads me to believe that his old board had issues from the start.
