Summary: I got an Intel DP67BG motherboard instead with LGA1156 socket. the board does give you speedy latest-generation ports like USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps, and it allows for CPU overclocking and installing two video cards. It's one of the best value I saw. I recommend this seller and this motherboard.
Summary: This is still an excellent motherboard. It really sucks that Intel keeps discontinuing items like these that still function excellent...it makes them more expensive than you would think they would be.
Summary: Be sure you get the latest revision if you buy this board. I bought one and it was a very old revision and it wasnt working with the intel i5 that I had purchased for it. Intel replaced it for free for me thankfully. Its a persnickety board in that it didnt like the 500W power supply I originally bought for it, thankfully I had a 430W backup that works fine. I have a SSD for the OS and 16GB of RAM and its a great machine so far.
Summary: I was unable to assemble this motherboard, place all the accessories in place but the pc does not start using a burner / reader blueray, multi DVD / CD, HDD 1TB western, Nvidia GForce 8400 1024MB, and unbootable nothing if not using Ram memory which is 8GB 1600Mhz Corsair 2x4, if someone can answer me, would be helpful.
Summary: Bought this board to replace a Asus board that died on me, having to use the 1156 socket the selection has become next to nothing, but this board has more to offer than the Asus that died. Installed 100% no problems, booted straight up first try. Runs great, TONS of usb ports, integrated bluetooth was nice. Product didn't arrive in anything other than the box it was shipped in and some bubble wrap, the disc w/ drivers and whatnot just kind of tossed in with it..
