Decent features but cramped layout

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Very nice features for the price. Lack of internal USB3 headers (onboard/rear only) is forgivable. Virtu support is cool but of questionable utility unless you encode video alot. You can't change RAM while a Graphics card is installed, and the RAM slot are too close to the CPU for big aftermarket coolers (not a problem for Intel's boxed i5 cooler), and are also too close together for good airflow. Decent for a HTPC or basic PC, overclockers look elsewhere.

seems like a decent board for the cost

  • Summary: This board has socket LGA1155 not LGA775 as per the bullet-point description. Not sure why the person who wrote out the listing would even mention LGA775 - that's a socket type, not a form-factor. If you got here looking to upgrade an older rig using an LGA775 processor, look elsewhere as I'm fairly confident this one won't work with that socket. Otherwise, seems like a decent board for the cost.

Don't use for Linux

  • Summary: Bought this board to be a server, with an i7 and 16 Gb. What I did not know is that the onboard network port requires a microsoft operating system to install its driver. Using plug in NICs, but shouldn't have to. Downvoted for lack of Linux support. Downvoted for lack of ATA HD support, SATA only. Using a plug in card to support my DVD devices with their ATA connections. Otherwise, a solid MB.
