Summary: This board has a great BIOS and I was able to run a Zeon processer on this board with 32mb of Corsair ram with a 240gig Intel SSD drive/ GeForce Video Card and a 1TB WD BLK storage drive. WOW best computer I ever built. From CAD programs to Videos this rig is solid as a rock. It all starts with a good motherboard. Thanks Intel.
Summary: For less than $100, you cannot go wrong with this. I have no sound card and no video card, running this with Intel i-7 3770 (not overclocked) and 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 RAM. The speed, sound, video are amazing w/out add on cards. If you are looking to build a system for moderate video and sound usage that you can use for 3-5 years problem free, this is the board for you.
Summary: I purchased the first unit back in Feb. 2013. It was a mATX, i3-3220 with stock fan and 2x4GB 1600MHz memory, for SOHO application. It works very well. I then purchased the second unit in May to build a HTPC with the same configuration. It runs well too. Install Windows 7 first. Then, install the drivers from the software CD. If you don't install the drivers from CD, the network card will not work. Update to the most current BIOS as soon as possible.
