5 out of 5 eggsVery decent board for office use

Pros: Decent support for older ps/2 connections and parallell printer port. Yet having a few ports for USB3. Coupled with a Sandy bridge cpu, this makes for a great office and light duty workstation.

The initial bios settings are very conservative and set to legacy bios, making it easier to set things up.

Cons: Recommend updating the bios. It appears a large percentage of the boards seem to be a production run of bios version #042.

Ivy Bridge cpu support depends on later serial number versions *and* the BIOS being version #048 and newer.

Other Thoughts: There's a lot of life left in Sandy bridge cpus. And if you plan to use a sandy Bridge cpu and Windows 7. I'd advise updating the BIOS no higher than #048. The latest BIOS versions add Windows 8 and related updates to Windows 8 favored UEFI booting and the secure boot can-o-worms.

UEFI bios is still a messy work in progress. If you have windows 7 and no need to use large 2TB hard drives and/or RAID. The legacy bios setting is definitely your friend.

4 out of 5 eggsIvy Bridge Hit and Miss

Pros: I've order over 40 of these over the last yea for custom servers. They work great when you stick to sandy bridge cpu's only.

Cons: The woes of Ivy Bridge compatibility. For those wondering why you get that one board that just doesn't work with your new ivy bridge. And get a constant memory beep code, it's not your memory, it's the motherboard.

To find out if the board you have can support ivy bridge cpu's look up the AAG in the bios system info. The caveat being if you have a spare sandy bridge cpu laying around to start it up to check in the first place.

Another note is if you do upgrade the bios and play musical cpu's the first POST will give you the above link if it's AAG is to old. Hope this helps others that just happen to get unlucky with an old batch.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard

Pros: I used this with Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G RAM and Core i3-2120 3.3Ghz CPU and am very happy so far. All-in-one video, NIC and sound is nice. It has PCI slot for legacy cards, which is a plus.

Cons: No 1394 header for front firewire and no support for IDE devices.

5 out of 5 eggsChanging the rating from 4 eggs to 5 eggs

Pros: The board runs great.

Cons: I docked an egg in my last review because:
1. It is a pain to update the BIOS to the newest version. You have to create a bootable USB or CD and update using the command prompt using Iflash2. That hasn't changed, but not enough by itself to dock an egg.
2. I also had a problem that my memory was only recognized at 1066 even though the board says it is 1333 compatible. I now know that the 1066 limitation is due to the Celeron processor, not the board. Dumb me, so the board is working as it should.

Other Thoughts: I got the motherboard in a package deal for a great price, and it is an excellent foundation for an awesome home or office PC (especially if you use a solid state drive).

4 out of 5 eggsGood motherboard, but let me help you out

Pros: 1. Works with a ton of different processors. Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge (if you update the BIOS, which isn't easy, see below). I have a Celeron G540 installed with an SSD, and it is very fast.
2. Intel gigabit LAN - excellent
3. 6 SATA ports, with 2 of them being SATA 6GB
4. Plenty of fan headers.
5. Good quality board.
6. The motherboard worked well with my G.Skill ram from the start (F3-10600CL9D-4GBNT), which is only $20 on Newegg.

Cons: 1. Pain to update the BIOS. Mine came with BIOS 0020 (from 2/18/2011). The newest is 0046. I tried the Windows update tool (.EXE option). It doesn't work on any of the newer BIOS versions.
2. Intel gives you three options to update the BIOS, 1. the Windows version that doesn't work, 2. press F7 during boot up, or 3. use the iFlash command (.ZIP). The F7 method only works through BIOS version 0034, and then it won't let you use that method for the newer versions. I will explain what I did to get the most updated version 0046 on my system below...
2. Even though my ram is 1333 ram, the system will NOT run the ram at 1333. It doesn't give me the option to change it anywhere in the BIOS. But at least it is running the ram at very tight timings.

Other Thoughts: To update to the newest BIOS:
1. Download the ZIP file to use the iFlash utility. Unzip the files into a folder on another computer.
2. I tried to create a USB DOS bootable drive using he HP Utility, and it wouldn't work. So after 15 minutes of trying, I used a utility called RUFUS, and it worked perfectly. Use a thumb drive that you are able to wipe clean, and let RUFUS create the bootable drive.
3. Then move the BE0046.BIO file and the iFlash2 program to the bootable thumb drive.
4. Go into your BIOS and change your PC to boot off the thumbdrive, and then at the C: prompt, type: IFLASH2 /pf BE0046.BIO (directions are here, but I am telling the correct information:
5. It will then flash the BIOS to the newest version.
6. It took me an hour to figure all this out... hopefully this will save you some time.

3 out of 5 eggsGet The Right Memory first!

Pros: Affordable price.

Cons: Memory issues!! but the memory that I found that works is the Kingston KVR133D3N9HK2/8G

I had to spend 50 min. on the phone with Intel to get the updated motherboard and had to spend shipping to ship it back. There are compatiblility issues with the newer intel processors unless you have the new version of this mother board.

Other Thoughts: Can you spend the extra money and get some other better motherboard out there? If you can you should, trust me!!

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Board well labeled. Easy to see what plugs in where.

Cons: Board will not recognize either type of DDR-3 1333 MHz RAM I had available. Board arrived DOA. Board has 6 SATA ports, but two got covered up by the Geforce GTX550 video card. The video card sits too close to the DIMM slots.

Other Thoughts: When the computer attempts to boot, the system give a memory warning beep, the fans spin, but the system will not boot. Tech guys at Intel finally suggested a Bios recovery which didn't solve the problem. Had to pay shipping to send the board back to Newegg.

1 out of 5 eggsLimited Memory Supported

Pros: Just built a new system with the I3 - 2100, bought the bundle deal. Only Pro... saved some money

Cons: Turns on.... doesn't like my really great Gskull Memory.. 1333 which is what the board supports.. Tried other memory, still same thing when I turn it on... just sits and spins. I looked up the MFG tested memory, there is less then 20 that they have approved for this board... I have 7 computers in the house.. tried all of the memory just one stick... still nothing! You cannot use a nice graphics card and multiple drives, the SATA's are in the wrong spot!
