Pros: Good compatibility; excellent reliability; very stable
Cons: video drivers cold be better for differing resolutions; no built-in RAID-5.
Other Thoughts: The folks that are giving this a bad rating, outside of board failure, most likely do not have the ability to set up this board. It is NOT for novices. It takes a lot of knowledge to set up this board, knowing which fans to install and where, what BIOS settings to edit, etc.

What a huge mess Be warned
Cons: Wow where do I start. I purchased this board because our company server had died. I installed the board and everything was working expect for the NICS. Intel told me this was a 'known problem' with the NICS missing the capacitors. I asked NewEgg to replace or refund since I just bought it. They told me to contact the manufacture to which I did. In the meantime I purchased an asus board so I could get my company server back online. Intel sent the replacement board back which I turned into NewEgg for a Refund. NewEgg denied my refund because it was 'not the original product' which is totally sad because I followed every single direction that NewEgg and Intel told me to regarding this process, and in the end NewEgg denied my refund.
Other Thoughts: I will be doing business elsewhere from now on.

Pros: 1) The board is performing as advertised, no problems to report.
Cons: 1) This motherboard has a female (Molex 50-57-9405) "Auxiliary Power Signal" connector. The connector is supposed to connect to Intel's proprietary power supply which comes with their proprietary chassi$. The purpose of this connector is to enable communication with Intel's PSU. The mobo contains an I2C master that controls Intel's PSU, so, for example, if your system overheats, it can turn itself off. The system should still boot and run fine without anything plugged into this connector, but if you're talking to Intel Support about a related problem they will dutifully recite "the motherboard is only supported in the recommended chassis."
Other Thoughts: Still burning it in. I plan to use it for a hyper-v host.
