  • Summary: I have not had much luck running the motherboard, its slow even with a 65W quad core processor. It does work, but not very well and has been a headache since I put it together...

ICH Chip on fire!

NEET, Amazon
1 March 2013
  • Summary: My setup is: MI-008 Super Case e5200 Wolfdale 4Gb Ram 120Gb SATA HDD Since the board is so small, it's no surprise installation of parts was a major PITA, but I suppose I should give credit to this board in one area. It booted right up, and everything is working... FOR NOW. In BIOS, ICH temps are around 96c and this is during winter. I found an old antec case fan, and jammed it where the hard drive is supposed to be moving the hard drive elsewhere.

This thing has the STRANGEST quirk...

MICHAEL "Maker/Breaker of all things 'Tech'", Amazon

  • Summary: Build worked fine but this board has the strangest quirk... every 30-45 minutes, the system will turn itself on for about 2 seconds and shut right back off... I've never seen anything like it. If it's on and running, things work just fine,,, if I shut it down and walk away, it will power up just long enough to spin fans and spring the HDD to life before shutting right back down again.
