Great board

Gary, Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: We have gotten nearly 20 of these motherboards, and have found them to be very effective. Having the space for memory to expand and two video (DVI) ports fit our applications very well. The builds with these boards have been very reliable. We have some systems on site that have been running for over a year now.

DOA board

James J. Bell, Amazon
25 July 2011
  • Summary: No one who gets a dead board is happy but I thought I put something down even with my limited use of the MB. My board refused to start, with no beeps and no feedback beyond a green light saying power was on. Intel needs to have some indication of the boot progress. The two LEDs on the board (cost approx $0.02) do nothing to help you diagnose problems. We're told constantly to swap out RAM and "re-seat" CPUs (and I did that many times).

GREAT motherboard for workstation or low-end server

Jan Bottorff, Amazon
15 October 2010
  • Summary: I've purchased two of these now and they are great little 1156 socket motherboards. Things I really like: includes a TPM, has HDMI, VGA, and DisplayPort connectors (only 2 can be used at once), and the vPro remote admin really works allowing remote power cycling and full network KVM. It was REAL hard to find the correct Intel utility program to configure the managment processor in a standalone mode.

Ubuntu 10.04 works ok

  • Summary: It works out of the box with ubuntu 10.04. There is an USB bug with the BIOS, so you have to update the BIOS to the latest version.
