Summary: Replaced an Asus board on my second computer (media server)... The old board would randomly halt and reboot... Also, it needed a bunch of non-standard bios changes just to post... I didn't really need to do anything with this intel board... (aside from the standard bios upgrade that I do with any new hardware).... I've built many PCs, and this is the second intel board I've used... Much easier to deal with than Asus, or any of the other brands I've used...
Summary: The pictures of the product are not as advertised the vreg/mosfets for the cpu do not have the heatsinks as amazon/Intel advertise, including the seller, I would suggest buying some thermal adhesive tape from performance pcs and 2x ModMyToys Solid Copper Passive Micro-Heatsinks. Five of them have no cooling at all and will lower their temps considerably. Other than that its a great board, the onboard realtek audio leaves a lot to be desired.
Summary: I needed a replacement for my burned out DX58SO and this mobo is the only one I could find that supports my CPU. The price is a big plus, about less than half I paid for my old one. Long story short, the seller is willing to help me out with any issues concerning this mother board and was able to get it running smoothly. I have an excellent experience with this seller and will be buying from them in the future.
New mainboard low cost because of overstock Perfect
3 April 2013
Summary: I lost a VR on a DX58SO and wanted to keep using my Intel 920 cpu..This uses a 1366 fsb and boards from newegg ,ect were 350$ ++ so I gambled 100$ and bought it has worked perfect from day one it was a upgrade from my old board and I have nothing bad to say.
Summary: Many problems with memory and SATA3 controller. My CPU only works on 1066 and only on the first slot. SSD drive with all the necessary drivers, works as SATA2. So motherboards designed for the newer generation I7 processor Nonoperating SATA3. The only plus is USB 3.0.
