Summary: This has BIOS issues and is not compatible with solid state hard drives. After receiving it, I learned that support is no longer available from Intel. That should have been my first clue to have returned it ASAP.
Summary: Where to start... Nothing against the seller. that party did everything correct. Board arrived as stated, brand new in box.. fair price.. EXCEPT this intel board is junk. Everything went smooth as silk until it came time for some upgrades.
Overall this motherboard gives Intel a bad name, wouldn't buy one again.

Summary: I bought this product because I figured Intel was a good brand and since they made the processor then they'd make a good board too. WRONG !!! On installation I could get none of the USB 2.0 ports to work with my existing Windows 7 installation even after removing and reinstalling the necessary...
Summary: This board is riddled with problems. Worked fine for about a month then started getting bios errors, random power cycles, making ir very problematic for the computer. Stay away from this board. Read the reviews on this board. You will see a lot of people have very similar problems.
Summary: Purchased one of these boards and it wouldn't boot. DOA. Replaced with different memory, different processor and still no boot. Purchased memory recommended with the board by Amazon but still no joy. Decided to return to Amazon and purchased a replacement board. It too is defective. No boot.
Summary: It's from Intel, therefore my expectations were high, but upon receiving this board, I am certainly disappointed. The packaging was sloppy. I'm fine with sloppy packaging.... but wait, there's no manual.
Summary: $2,293.59 and 27 pounds. Are you kidding? What am I missing here? When is a top line motherboard more than $500 00. What is it this motherboard does? 27 pounds, what is in this box? Is this a joke?
