5 out of 5 eggsSuperb board

Pros: Superb quality and awesome voltage regulation. No other 975X board can match the stability of the Intel. Works perfectly with Vista and hybrid sleep. Uses the PECI interface so it will regulate your fan speeds. Ultra-quiet.

Cons: You can't overclock it without the OC Debug solution. See here: http://forums.legitreviews.com/about6375.html

I personally don't overclock because I don't mind spending the dough for newer and faster hardware.

Other Thoughts: HIGHLY recommended for the Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad processors.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent motherboard

Pros: 975 chipset, Intel stability, 3 PCI Express (3!), plenty of SATA, good layout, No fans

Cons: Expensive

Other Thoughts: I use this motherboard in a video editing station, it has 2 PCI Express video cards, 1 PCI Express Raid Card, 1 PCI Audio card and 1 PCI firewire card, 4 Gb Ram and a grand total of 6 Hard drives, all run by a Core 2 Duo Extreme 2.93 Overclocked to 3.4Ghz… A hell of a config… I do not had a single issue, nothing; everything worked fine from the first try, I must say I was impressed, I would definitely recommend this Motherboard for all the power users out there. It’s expensive, but you get what you paid for...

5 out of 5 eggsA very good value for the bucks

Pros: This is the second "bad axe" that I've bought and built, and both have been great solutions. Probably OC hardcores should go for the Asus P5W, but otherwise this one has the features and quality that you want. Easy instructions, clearly marked parts, and Intel's support site made it very straightforward.

Cons: Only one ATA port, so don't plan on more than one IDE/ATA hard drive if you're also using an IDE DVD drive. Because of my extra large Antec case, the included floppy cable was too short.

Other Thoughts: A great RAID board if you need one -- Intel's hardware RAID controller is easy to use (skip the Silicon Image stuff).

4 out of 5 eggsVery fast!

Pros: The board went together smoothly and the instructions and diagrams that come with the package are excellent. Everything went together nicely except my ATI x850XML which was required to be put in the first PCI 16x slot. I had the memory hold downs in the down position and didn't realize it. The ATI card was very hard to get into the slot and it ended up being right on top of the hold down. It broke it off. The PCI hold down doesn't clip on the PCI express card at the back which I assume it is supposed.

Cons: The sound is terrible. It ends up that their is a file that is required to run Intel Audio Studio. That file is called iasdll.dll. When I installed SpySweeper it said that it was a key logger. I googled it and it was true. So I removed it. Don't know if the sound ever sounded good or not but at this point it is absolutely the worst sound I've ever had off of a motherboard. I've since ordered a sound card.

Other Thoughts: Another issue came up and that is that I was going to put Windows Server 2003 on this computer but then all of Intels software that sets the LAN, audio and video doesn't work with Windows 2003. This is the second box I've built from Intel's motherboards and that is a ridiculous requirement. So I loaded it up with Windows 2000 on one and Windows XP on the other which the silly installation utility supports. How come the other motherboard manufacturers can make their software work all versions of Windows, including server 2003 but Intel rejects the Windows 2003 Server?

4 out of 5 eggsPleased

Pros: Well-made baord. Used with E6600, no driver updates/BIOS updates required, POSTed right away, and no issues so far.

Cons: Pricey, and not really sure why. Front panel sound leads are at the very back and directly under where my X1950XTX fan exhaust is, so impossible to hook this up--seems like a very stupid place to put this.

Other Thoughts: Would like to have more firewire ports on the board, but there's one on the back panel and leads on the board for a second port, so I guess that's enough.

5 out of 5 eggsLike this motherboard

Pros: I got this Intel motherboard and I'm very happy with it. Setting up my RAID drives worked without a hitch. Windows XP saw the RAID drivers on my USB floppy with no problem. My older ASUS motherboard, this didn't work.

Built in sound seem very good. No hiccups at all. Included software for the sound allows you to configure most aspects of the sound. Plus it has Dolby sound settings to.

Everything in the box seemed very good quality.

Cons: EIDE port is in an awkward location. Seemed more like an afterthought.

Other Thoughts: Newer model just came out. It's more pricey though, so this motherboard is a good deal.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: The board as alot to offer:
- decend onboard sound
- 4 DIMM slots
- optical and coaxial outs
- onboard NIC card
- included a good about of software as well

Cons: the DDR2 memory it uses maxes out at 667 mHz and if you're not carefull you can order the wrong speed which causes sporadic and funny problems

Other Thoughts: If you want the faster memory speed (800 mHz) then I'd suggest ordering the XbX2 version of this board which is about $50 more here on NewEgg. It's what I should have done and now am too lazy to rip apart the system to correct that mistake.

Pros: This board can do pretty much anything.
The compatibility with other RAID's systems is amazing.
