Summary: Perfect mobo to save my old core 2 quad processor and RAM. Onboard graphics work great. Stuck a TV tuner in it and now have a perfect DVR. Chipset generates very little heat, so the CPU fan and a chassis fan on low are all that is needed, making it a very quiet and low power consuming computer.
Summary: Great motherboard.I did a lot of research on motherboards before I made my purchase.This motherboard did not disappoint.I needed this motherboard to match my quad cpu and ddr2 800 mghz ram.I wasn't sure if I would also need a cpu because My old msi motherboard was burnt out and wasn't sure if that old motherboard took the cpu with it.I installed my Q6700 2.66 cpu and DDR2 ram to this intel motherboard and It booted right up.It saved me some money because I didn't have to...
Replaced a Gigabyte board and didn't even have to rebuild the OS.

Summary: Of course the OS was Linux (Ubuntu 12.10). If it had been windoz it would have bluescreened for sure. But this is a nice little board and one of the few left that supports the Quad CPUs (non-i-series).
Summary: Great motherboard, it has 4 usb, 4 sata, integrated lan + sound. Really easy to setup. I recommend to install chipset drivers for optimus performance of usb ports! Worked just fine with a core 2 quad and 4 gb ram!
