Summary: Bought this board off mega1comp for $199 + some postage and handling costs, item as described(So you do actually get the full retail box with everything in it from the manufacturer and the retail boxed is Intel sealed.) and works as expected.
Summary: Great motherboard. Super fast. Intel quality and stability. Using this board with and Intel Core 2 Exreme QX9770 3.2ghz and 1600 fsb. Iv'e read other reviews where people had trouble running 4gb of1600 ram. I'm running 8gb (4x2)of Kingston Hyperx Genesis 1600 ram without an issue. One concern.
Summary: Ok, first of all, this mobo is FAST. It can breath new life into a older processor, the secret is the DDR3 RAM setup. Unfortunately, intel did a VERY BAD job on the bios. If you get this board, you will need to first make sure that you are running the lastest BIOS update.

Summary: Since the reviews are a little old here, I felt there should be a update. I have had one of these boards for about 6 months. It is a fantastic motherboard. Purchased direct from a vender here at Amazon, the same as my Intel DX38BT board purchased here at Amazon, no pun intended to this vender.

Summary: I test the this Motherboard with Intel Q9450 Core2 Quad Proccessor and 4Gb TW3X4G1333C9DHX Corsair DDR3 RAM Memory and this Motherboard works very good. The memory work with a FSB of 1066MHz instead of 1333MHz
Summary: First time to buy a Intel Motherboard, I have always bought other brands, not so recognized as Intel, and to be honest, is my best purchase ever, I'm very happy with all the features, the installation was quickly, it recognize every component I have. A+ a must have.
