1 out of 5 eggsfailures

Pros: I got nothing good to say for this one

Cons: This board never booted from day one. completed the initial start up sequences but fails before display driver initiated the display. bought all new components for diagnostics but in the end this board failed every boot attempt.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it but..

Pros: HDMI and DVI video outputs
Gigabit network
Supports AHCI (hot swapping)
Max 16GB RAM with 4 slots
lots of USB ports

Overall the board is a very nice one. It's not the latest and greatest but if you want something that's not outdated but at a decent price, this is the perfect board.

Cons: This board supports AHCI but getting it to work with eSATA was a bit tricky. Intel tech support doesn't even recommend using eSATA to SATA connections, which begs me to ask what exactly and why would you be hot swapping if you have to open up the case to get to the sata ports anyway? I did more research and according to Intel's website, hot swapping is not compatible with the ICH10 chipset (which this board has). Wish I knew that earlier.

In order to have hot swap capability at all, your BIOS must be set to AHCI mode. If you installed the OS before doing this, you'll probably have to reload the OS. Couldn't find a good way around it. Once BIOS is set and OS loaded, you should be able to plug your eSATA drive in and the OS should recognize new hardware... (continued in other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: (continued from Cons) You won't get the "Safely Remove Hardware" though. The OS thinks you installed new hardware so it's not going to allow you to unplug it like a thumb drive. (This is the part that's not compatible. To truly hot swap using eSATA, the board should have an eSATA port, which it doesn't.) To get around this and remove the drive safely before unplugging, go to Device Manager and "Uninstall" the drive. Works like a charm, and super fast sata speeds. If you install Intel's Rapid Storage Technology software, it will disable the OS's automatic hardware detection so you'll have to open up the software and refresh the hardware page to load the drive.

This is an LGA775 board (most LGA775 boards don't support DDR3 RAM). If you ever decide to upgrade your ram, DDR2 is crazy expensive! The cost of DDR3 is so much cheaper that in the long run, you might end up saving more money by purchasing a board that supports DDR3.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: Board works flawlessly. No issues with my Memory or SSD. Even my giant CPU cooler fits with ease.

Cons: DDR2 Memory is expensive

Other Thoughts: Bought this board to replace an ASUS P5N-E SLI board that was a complete lemon.

5 out of 5 eggsNot a bad board, bad heating issues though...

Pros: For an intel brand board, it's very rock solid, and really speedy. I've gotten nothing but good performance out of it. no problems whatsoever. plays games very well

Cons: Like others have said, yes this board pretty dang hot. playing my games the ICH goes up to 91c+ playing games, while it will hover around 81 on idle. definately not an ideal board for a small case (unless your good with modding and know how to use fans properly. replaced thermalpaste on the ICH with some deepcool Z5 and that seemed to make a considerable improvement, now stays around in the upper 60's, still have to keep the lid of my case off though. :/

Other Thoughts: Speedfan reports a winbond chip went bad on the board, which seemed to affect the CPU censor, keeps going from 16c, then spiking up to 106c, back down again, and so on. it doesn't affect each seperate senser on each of the cores though, so not enirely sure what the sensor was for in the first place. also not sure about AUX. MCH within tolerance

It reads:WARNING: bad Winbond($5CA3,$C1) identify (W83627DHG-P,W83667HG)W83627DHG-P (ID=$C1) found (using SuperIO) on ISA at $290.

It doesn't seem to be affecting how the MB runs though and it's not bothersome.

Specs as follows:
Custom case
this intel board
Intel core 2 quad Q6600 2.40 GHz
4 GB DDR2 (not a multitasking guy, so who cares how much)
160GB Maxtor diamondmax (all I need, an external)
XFX geforce 9600 GSO (a beast despite it being an older card)

Going to most likely pop a kepler in this when is comes out along with an SSD. it's already screaming fast, I could only imagine how much more upon upgrading, coolings a prob

5 out of 5 eggsDOA boards -- try replacing CMOS battery

Pros: n/a

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: Wrote review previously, this is additional.

These boards were released in 2009, are no longer in production. Batteries have a nominal shelf life of 3 years and some may not have been fresh when installed. A dead CMOS battery can prevent power-on and/or cause BIOS issues.

A new CR2032 battery only costs a few dollars. It might not be the solution but it's worth trying. Be sure to unplug power cord first.

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work, going to try another

Pros: Many features, 4 memory slots.

Cons: Board would not boot. 3 beep error with known good memory from previous LGA775 based board. Could not get any further than pressing the power button (which did not immediately power the system up - took a few presses, and even then, there was a delay) and hearing the beeps. Memory felt loose in the memory slots.

The manual is on a DVD included with the board, although you do get a very vague reference poster. I'm glad I had another computer I could view the manual on - not that it was much help...

Other Thoughts: I chose this board because I wanted to use my existing components and not have to upgrade everything. The 4 memory slots were the key selling point for me, but since the board refuses to recognize ANY of the memory sticks, it's a moot point.

To add insult to injury, *I* have to pay for return shipping to Newegg. This is the first time I have had to cover the cost of a defective product return. Regardless of the fact that Newegg does not manufacture this product, they are selling it and should pay for defective returns. I'm on a pretty tight budget, and $17 for the original shipment TO me, plus whatever it's going to cost ME to ship it BACK is unacceptable.

Their RMA FAQ also states it could take 3-4 days for processing once they receive the item, meaning it'll probably be about 2 weeks before I get my replacement. This is NOT money well spent, and I am NOT a happy customer.

2 out of 5 eggsPower issues

Pros: New hardware for legacy parts I had laying around.
Onboard video. (currently not using)
Cheap. (Got it for ~$55, would not pay more.)

Cons: First POST was a bit of trouble. Was almost ready to RMA when it finally posted.

Wish I had googled this item beforehand, because I have one with severe power issues that seem to be common. You turn the unit off, and it remains on and feeds massive amounts of power to the fans and video card before finally turning off, at which point, it comes right back on. When it comes back on, it does not POST. Hitting reset will POST the motherboard, and then load the OS. The behavior on sleep is even worse. I have the latest 0035 BIOS (came with the board), which if i understand correctly, will be the last update. My only idea at this point is that the case headers for power and reset are labelled incorrectly. The issue is not with other hardware, and the issue is very common, just google it. If anyone has a fix for this, I would be most thankful.

The issue right now is being bypassed by just turning the power off by PSU switch (if your PSU even has one) when your OS shuts down.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if there is a bad batch of these boards and I got unlucky, but the problem I'm having seems to be common enough that I could not recommend this board due to the fact that it will most likely not be fixed. I wish my first purchase of an Intel board had gone better.
