Summary: I'm a Sr. Electronics Tech by trade. And if not for that I might of had some problems. Assembling a Personal Computer piece by piece is not easy if you don't know what your doing. So if you don't get help first. Because learning can be fun or frustrating. I had a blast with this older Intel product. Some times older means all the bugs have answers and the drivers are all made to order.
Summary: This motherboard is a very good Multi-Media Motherboard and I have one already I like it because it can does a lot of things has a lot of USB clots goes good with the Cooler Master Computer Case.
Glad I picked this board up. Problems fixed at a reasonable cost.

Summary: I was pleased to find a direct replacement for my motherboard. It failed after 5 years or so and an attempted bios flash, followed by a failed recovery procedure. Rev.1 boards are always a little iffy. This board worked out of the box with my new CPU, no flashes needed, and I'm back up and running more stable than before. The problems I was having that appeared to be my video card even went away, so RMA avoided there as well.
Summary: EXCELLENT QUALITY BOARD AND FAST. EASY TO SET UP AND THE RAID FUNCTIONS ARE GREAT.ALWAYS USE THE NEWEST DRIVERS FROM THE INTEL WEB SITE TO GUARANTEE STABLE OPERATION. THIS WAS EASY TO INSTALL AND SUPPORTS QUAD CORE PROCESSORS. YOU WILL LOVE IT. I'VE USED INTEL BOARDS FOR YEARS NOW ANDI WOULD RECCOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE.
Summary: I've been putting systems together for over ten years and these days the one feature that I value above all others is stability. I've had issues that I could trace back to motherboards from all the major manufacturers on Intel and AMD platforms. So I decided to try this Intel board when it was first released and it's been so good that I have bought another one for my HTPC in spite of the fact that it's fairly old technology now.
Summary: The DP35DP is very similar to the DG965WH minus the legacy stuff. The DP35DP does not have serial, parallel printer port, or ps/2 ports on the back I/O. This means you must use a usb keyboard and mouse. The board takes many types of cpus such as core2extreme core2duo, celeron, pentium ect. The board three pci-express x1 slots and comes with one pci-express x16 slot.
