Summary: the board was good for a short time being used in a home server build but eventually stated to have serious problem after 3-4 months when i tried to flash bio and reset everything the peripheral ports then failed. usbs didnt work anymore and nor did the graphics cared slot.
Summary: I have older hardware, so I needed a mother board that could sustain it. This did the trick. Down side is the HD audio drivers. they seem to be sub-par. Other than that it's worked like a charm.
Summary: This Intel motherboard is a great replacement for older computers. The setup and installation in a snap. I love it! It's too bad Intel has decided to discontinue production consumer motherboards. Jerry
