Excerpt: You’d think an Intel chipset would stand the best chance in a board designed by Intel. That’s not the case. The desktop partner to Intel’s crazy-ass Skulltrail platform, the DX48BT2 board is code-named Bonetrail, and of the four boards here, it is the most disappointing. The first misstep stares you right in the face: The six SATA ports are in a silly location and point straight up. Mount any dual-GPU card in the board and you block access to two ports.
Pros: x48-based chipset boasts wider CPU support than nForce boards; generally stable.
Cons: Not particularly fast; difficult to overclock; unfriendly BIOS.
