Summary: No defects, worked on the first try, new ram and an old I7 860 processor, and we were back in business. Unlike some older (1366-1156) motherboards I have tried, this one had no troubles with SLI at all.
Summary: This is a great board for the 1156 CPU. I am still discovering all of the features of this board. A no brainer to stall. Extremely fast with the sold state hard drive I installed. Looking forward to many years of enjoyment.
Summary: I installed it earlier this week and everything was easy. Only problem was it not having a slot for IDE hard drive which was ok since I had SATA's. That and shipping other than that everything was good! Barely had trouble with cpu fan.
Amazing sound, low ping and overclocking abillities for the money.
15 April 2013
Summary: This is an amazing product at any price. The Intel Gb LAN is amazingly fast and bests the solutions in my two high end systems when it comes to low ping and less lag while gaming. I easily overclocked my GSkill RAM to the 1600 Mhz it is supposed to run at and the Intel Core i3 530 I am using has easily been overclocked to almost 3.8 Ghz on the stock cooler.
Summary: Out of the night came a single loud bang as a bright bolt of lightning nearby struck the hill. The bang was so loud it echoed through the trees and woke me in the night. Soon afterwards the smell of burning plastic was in the air, and I searched the house to find a fried ethernet over powerline box dead behind my TV. The PC was off, unusually, and despite being on an APC UPS, it got hit through the ethernet side and no longer had any communications ability.
Summary: This is a great product. I bought it for the RAID and onboard surround sound capabilities (kinda an HTPC for general use, though). I was getting all sorts of BSODs and I thought it was a bad board so I returned it for a replacement. It turned out that it was just a bad Memory Module. I really love the Intel Desktop Control Center. It helps you by automatically overclocking your system.
Summary: The Intel DP55SB motherboard; It is part of my first computer build. I am fairly young so it did take me a while to carefully choose and buy this motherboard XD I had trouble running the new build. The system was dead. After testing out the power supply, I wasn't sure whether the problem lay with the motherboard or the i5-750 processor. I was impatient as any other person would be and decided to ask Amazon for a replacement of the mobo.
