Summary: I went with Asus first wouldn't install spent a couple of days trying. Asus support was no help really so return it. Came across Intel board not many reviews but decide to go for it glad i did. Installed easy didn't even need to call support. Everthing seems to be running smooth and working well.
Summary: I purchased x2 of these boards for customs PCs I built myself. Both PCs have 24GB Patriot memory (1600mhz), 1GB DDR3 MSI Video cards, x1 2TB Hard Drive (SATA2). The board comes with visual instructions to help connect with the case. I got x2 i7 960 CPUs.
and it does it just like every other Intel board I've ever owned

Summary: This board does everything that I needed (SATA 6 GB, USB 3...), and it does it just like every other Intel board I've ever owned... Intel has always made the highest quality boards on the planet, and I would never buy one of the chineese boards for my own use.
Summary: **** ENGLISH **** This board is awesome. I upgraded from DX58SO and the evolution to USB 3.0 and SATA III is worth it (specially if you have a SSD drive). The RAM is oriented diferently than the DX58SO, and is actually much more friendly with cases with PSU in the bottom.
Summary: Amazing product!! I love intel and buy this to upgrade the other DX58SO MOBO -Sata 3 support ( really fast...between 140 to 100 mb/s with a Sata 3 HDD) -More Memory Support ( using 12gb right now.
Summary: Actually it's great for Windows XP or Windows 7 (32- or 64-bit), but I would avoid using it for Dual-Boot style installation if the Win7 version is 64-bit. The features on this new "so2" version are excellent.
