Summary: This board booted once and I could never get it to boot again. I've built many computers over the years. I only bought this board because it was the last P45 board that I could find. Now I know why. Stay away from this board. I didn't bother to try and return it to the seller.
Summary: The package was advertised as being a retail box, however, came instead in a box in an antistatic bag and a bit of bubble wrap. The product had been damaged and was curved, but however is still functional.
Summary: Excellent board, but memory very picky! Tried a lot of brands but none of them worked.......got a couple of older ddr3 sticks like samsung and kingston KVR1333D3N9/2G and KVR1333D3N9/1G which worked (the kingstons are listed on intel's website as tested and working for the board.
