Summary: This board has given me no problems at all, if you buy a mother board I suggest intel,asus, or gigabyte. I have been using this board for over a year now and if you looking for something durable and longlasting for a pc build that isnt gunna cost you an arm and a leg this one it the one.. its probably a bit outdate for you new pc builders and they dont support the bios anymore, still the board im using to this day.. I almost always go with intel now.
Summary: exalent extream media board have not had too much problems with this board except had to install wireless internet to get all the drivers for the system over clocking is not to much of a problem getting a xeon processor to run it as a server running 64 bit os and 8gb for right now with no lag in audio or video.
Summary: Great Product, easy to install (I built up my system with an hour) and i haven't had any issues so far. The only downside is there is no IDE port, it's completely SATA but all in all it works great.
Summary: When I decided to build a computer for the first time, I chose to build one around an Intel chip and, to hopefully reduce possible problems, an Intel motherboard. I chose this one as I didn't need the features (and added cost) of the Extreme series but yet I wanted a system powerful enough to run multimedia items with ease. I have not been disappointed. This has been great from the get go with Windows XP and Windows 7.
Summary: Stable, Intel reliability. This board posted on first try. Win7 64 installed without a hitch. Have been running this for months now with no issues whatsoever. Basic no-frills board but with some surprising extras like SPDIF audio, onboard diagnostic LED readout and external bios reset button. Paired this with a Core i5-750 (running stable at 3.6 Ghz), a ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED CPU cooler and 4 gigabytes of G.SKILL DDR3 1600 RAM (1.5V for P55 chipset compatibility).
Summary: Easy Setup, Easy Install, All drivers except LAN load with Win 7 64-bit installation. Very fast, very smooth cool and quiet board. Headers for 2 fans plus CPU fan. On board HD is very good for on board audio.
Summary: I am no computer genius, but am very handy. I was able to build my current system with the supplied instructions. A few minor complaints though. First, when trying to install my OEM copy of Windows XP (SP-1 embedded,) I could not get past the install vs. repair page. Apparantly the board will not accecpt anything older than XP with SP-2. Found this totally by accident. It would have been nice to be told this.
