5 out of 5 eggsGreat board But why the extreme price jump?

Pros: Great board! Built it for my parents because I wanted something idiot and break proof. Stable enough to stand up to 2 computer illiterate 50-somethings and the 4 kids banging away at it.

Cons: Next to no legacy support- make sure you have USB everything. This used to be $250- wth?!

Other Thoughts: This board was good for the money- when it was $250- a year ago. It worked so well, I wanted another, and now it's anywhere between $325-over $400! WTh?!!! I will say though, that newegg is still the best price I've found so far, unless someone would like to prove me wrong please?
This is copy-pasted directly from my newegg order-

5 out of 5 eggs1 Year later

Pros: Stable.
Powerfull enough with a decent graphics card to play most any games.
Easy to find drivers et al from the Intel website and is
much faster than the Asus website.

Cons: Cumbersome to oc, but it can.
Would not choose for overclocking. There are boards out there that are made for this in mind.

Other Thoughts: 1 year later and the board has performed well and is quite stable. I have had no issues with bios updates or other software & hardware related annoyances.
I would recommend this board. Do your hardware research vs specific needs carefully when choosing a mainboard.

4 out of 5 eggsFine board

Pros: DD3, Stability

Cons: Not really a con but no on board Video. Can't use 8 gigs of ram at 1600.

Other Thoughts: This one was my first intel motherboard rig and i can't say i'm displeased. Would have been great to be able to use 8 gigs at 1600. But photoshop and video editing are fine at 4 gig with a great video card. Not an overclocker myself so can't comment on that.

4 out of 5 eggsStable, fast

Pros: Good stable board. I'm only using 2 GB of 1333 mHz of RAM and it has the speed I need. Guess the DDR3 makes the dif. Using a 3 gHz Core 2 Duo. Not in use for gaming, so I've not really stressed it, but overall a good board.

Cons: There isn't any on-board graphics or legacy PS-2 ports, but that's not really a con, since who needs those things these days. The real problem for me has been the on-board sound, which either does not work at all or when I got it working worked only very weakly.

Other Thoughts: Using one Sapphire 4850 v-card with 2 GB of OCZ DDR3 RAM.
Am upgrading the CPU to Core 2 Quad 9400, and don't expect any problems.
Have a Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme sound card that does the job.
Vista Business Aero rating of 5.9 in all areas except the CPU calculations, which should change when I upgrade.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Nice Board

Pros: Intel quality. An Intel board setup for overclocking?!? I never thought that I would see the day. Their beta desktop utility is nice, but you have to go back to an August 2008 BIOS to use it. I installed the 65 watt 2.83 GHz Intel quad-core CPU in mine. I've been running it at 3.2 GHz with no issues, and it's very stable. I have had no heat problems, and I am using the Intel "stock" heat sink.

Cons: The cons are minor. You can only use 4 GB of RAM at 1600 MHz. However, who can afford a CPU that supports 1600 MHz RAM? I'm running 8 GB at 1333 MHz, and it's lightening fast. My bigger "issue" is that the two PCI Express 2.0 slots are too close together.

Other Thoughts: Replaced a 5.5 year old computer with an all new new system that has this board. I am very happy with it. My old mobo was an Intel D865PERL board, which I was also very happy with. Intel has traditionally lagged in "features" on their motherboards, but their boards are very reliable.

FWIW, I agree with the earlier poster about the lack of reasons to buy 8 GB of RAM or to use a 64-bit OS. However, I am planning on using this computer for a long time, and RAM is currently very cheap, so I am using Vista Ultimate 64-bit and hoping for software that will take advantage of it somewhere down the line.

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad

Pros: it does overclock, dual channel RAM, it looks like the heatsinks for nb/sb should be easy to replace. plenty of room on board for a 92mm h.s.f.
2 and a half pci-express 16 expansion slots for video output or what-have-you
runs a lot of different chip types (all intel, player)
ddr3 hasn't sucked yet. module prices are coming down

Cons: some kind of limitation on running 1600MHz RAM in all 4 channels (not sure if this still applies it was to run underclocked)
not too many expansion slots other than pci-e x16 (i.e. no pci-e x1, 2 pci slots)
this board needs more power management options in BIOS

Other Thoughts: overclocking isn't that hard on this board, but mebbe those without much background in it would be better fitted to learn on other hardware. like i said, more power management options are needed, like line load balancing and other stuff, and there doesent look like an easy way to set ram ratio 1:1, but i dont even know if other boards do that (this stuff is a first for me, just about) the other reviewer commenting about pc3-10600 instead of 10666 is unheard of to me, but there might be something to that.
