Summary: Board arrived safely and installed easily. Amazon recommended two 4GB sticks of memory which I purchased. Of course they didn't work - three beeps. After much reading I decided I'd try to update the BIOS which supposedly adds support for my memory.
Summary: I was disapointed when this board started to fail because it was flexing in my case due to an X bar for the cpu cooler, but this motherboard was flawless and I bought another one this time with a push pin instead of the X bar these boards cannot stand X bars please take my word and buy a push pin...
Summary: I knocked off one star for the system memory configuration. (My purchase would not boot on 1333 - I had to use a 1066 module). I completed the appropriate steps for BIOS upgrade, which was to flash the two updates after the one listed in system BIOS, and then on to the 88 or latest).
Classic DG43RK Desktop board, A little picky to set up, but the Best Socket 775 Board ever made.
