Summary: Intel products at one time use to be rock solid. Built a Pentium 4 with intel's board D915GAG.This machine is still up and running and has been for the last 9 years. I built a game rig which ran me about 6 k .I decided to go with Intel's DX58SO board. Within the first month the board had to be RMA'd due to a failing chip on the board. Got the replacement board and within 6 weeks that board as well had a bad chip.
Summary: The motherboard arrived in a package that was supposed to be unopened however the board hoard had been previously been mounted. I thought for the price oh well if it worked fine it would be ok. The board was mounted in the computer and hooked up and it does not work properly, it woes not recognize any of the SATA drives or the hard drives, changed cables, remounted board still does not work.
