5 out of 5 eggsNice board

Pros: Looks nice, extremely small, lot of onboard gear that would suit the average user

Cons: None from my experience

Other Thoughts: Built a small rig with this board in the spring. Lian-li PC-Q11B, Intel Core i5 2500 w/ stock cooling, Crucial 1333 RAM, Silverstone SFX power supply, 330 Series Intel SSD for Win7 with a 1.5TB storage drive. After several months, no issues at all. I'd build the same machine again if I needed another desktop.

5 out of 5 eggssolid little board, TXT & TPM work

Pros: I bought this board to run an i7-2600 65W processor to run XenClient XT (requires full vPro) and develop code for measured launch using TXT / tboot and the TPM. All of these features work flawlessly. The rest of the components on the board work great too and USB 3.0 is super fast. Windows 7 doesn't package them directly but they're supplied on the driver disk.

Cons: none really

3 out of 5 eggsFollow up from 5/2011

Pros: All the good stuff I said prior, minus 1 egg for failing product and minus another for a warranty that is impossible to qualify for.

Cons: This is a follow up on the board I bought on 5/2011. It was the first of the ITX Intel boards that I bought. I now have 3 more DQ67's an a couple H55 ITX boards working great.
This board developed random crashing. No blue screen, total black and then rebooting. Was very infrequent at first but got bad enough i had to replace the system. Once I had the board out of the case I saw a very small chip (2 mm) near the memory slot looked like it had gotten hot and discolored the board.
I contacted Intel for warranty replacement since they offer 3 year parts/labor on this. Warranty was denied outright because there was physical damage on the board. Any visible damage to an Intel motherboard VOIDS the warranty. This in essence means that ALL Intel motherboards have no warranty at all.

Other Thoughts: It's unavoidable, every company is going to have a failed product at some point but the company also has complete control over how they respond to their customers when it happens.
Nothing like the trifecta of losing time, money, and getting virtual sand kicked in my face by the manufacturer.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent MB

Pros: 2 DVI ports (dual monitor natively) although I have a EVGA T550i 2GB card, I can fall back on those if I really need the PCI-E slot.

I have an I-5 2320 running with default HSF (the bios warns you once that the cpu is not supported and that's it), 8gb of Ram, Sugo SG-05 Case. Tiny & Quiet with 3 1TB 2.5 drives for data and 1 120GB 2.5 drive for OS (Windows Server 2003).

Cons: 6 Sata ports would be nice. Full length mini-pcie would be nice. Bios takes a liitle while to kick the sytem off to the OS. What devices are compatable with this anyway?

Other Thoughts: I like small quiet systems (the default HSF for the i52320 is pretty quiet to me). I'm waiting on 2 8GB sticks of ram so I can start experimenting with ramdisks and virtualazation. 4x3ghz cores, 2gb graphics ram, 8gb system ram, I'm set for a while.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb

Pros: Who should you buy this motherboard ? - Everybody who wants to do remote desktop without an OS !!!!!!

VERY UNIQUE to this model DQ67EP is that it has a mini PCIe port (exactly for laptop wireless cards)
Attention: the motherboard doesn't come with a wireless card or cables and antennas.
I purchased separately a Intel WiFi 6205 wireless card along with an u.fl cable + antenna (the u.fl cable makes the connection between the antena and the card) so now I have wireless internet as well.

Why bother with external antennas and u.fl connectors instead of getting a cheap aftermarket regular size PCI wirelesss card?
Answer: Because it gives you wireless vPro KVM !!!!!!

What is wireless vPRO KVM ?
Answer: You can control and see the PC without any operating system installed. You can see and modify everything, even BIOS options, you can see and troubleshoot a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death), install operating systems over the internet.

Cons: ... Continuation ....
For that you need to port forward port 16992 and 16994 in the router.

Why is so important ?
If you have friends or family that bug you all the time to fix their PCs and you don't want to drive there tell them to purchase this motherboard or any other Q67 chipset motherboard and together with approved vPRO Intel CPU, you can have total control over that PC.
Attention !!!!! Not all i5 or i7 Intel CPUs are vPRO compatible. Check on the Intel website for the list [...]

Attention # 2 !!! Even Intel suggests to get a aftermarket cpu cooler and heat sink if you use a regular i5 or i7 CPU. If you use the low voltage ones or have a really good ventilated case then you are OK.

Attention # 3 !!! For KVM vPRO to work you could use a software that helps do that. An example would be RealVNC Plus ($50)(Intel gives you a coupon inside the box for this program). Of course you can use any other program that supports Intel AMT vPRO :)

Other Thoughts: ...Continuation....
Also I purchased separately a display port to hdmi connector + spdif bracket so now I can watch movies on my LCD TV and huge surround sound system (using the optical output)

Because this motherboard is for mostly business clients it gets bios and drivers updates for 1 year ! vs other boards who get none or max 1-2 updates.

I use it together with a SSD and i5 2400 and the start up time is 20 sec (until I can use the PC properly)
It is VERY VERY stable (because is for business) and my total system wattage is 20 W idle-ing, 2 W in standby and between 30-50 W when the system is doing some heavy tasks.

It is an ideal motherboard for remote control and multimedia.

2 out of 5 eggsTrouble getting Intel native drivers to work with this M/B

Pros: 2x USB 3.0
2x SATA 6.0 Gbps
2 DVI ports

Cons: I have installed Win 7 x64 Ultimate w/o any problems. The strange thing is that Windows did not install any drivers for LAN or USB 3.0 and installed a generic SVGA driver for video. I have successfully updated the BIOS to the latest version (SWQ6710H.86A) and tried installing the drivers from supplied CD first. The process took over 10 minutes and failed. Then I tried installing MEI and drivers for LAN, USB 3.0, and HD Graphics from Intel web site. Automatic update failed as well. Manual install of MEI driver failed. LAN and USB 3.0 installed fine. At this point, Windows is stable, LAN and USB work fine. Any attempts to install Intel HD Graphics drivers for 2000/3000 result in a black screen and 'no video' message on the monitor right after the Windows logo during restart. I tried using both blue and white DVI ports to no avail. When I switch back to SVGA driver, everything works fine. I tried Intel support forums but I see they give generic script replies to everyone :-(

Other Thoughts: i5-2405S CPU
Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 model 996770
Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB 7200 RPM 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Little Motherboard

Pros: Solid build
Q67 chipset supports VT-d with appropriate CPUs
PCI-e 2.0 16x slot really works at 16x
2 eSATA ports
Mini PCI-e slot
Decent onboard LAN

Cons: No d-sub video out
Only one chassis fan header
Annoying disclaimer when you install a > 65W TDP CPU

Other Thoughts: My S.O. was fed up with the abundance of junk computers in my lab, so I bought this and a Lian Li PC-Q08B to build a "cute" SFF hypervisor to replace an older rig that looked like it had been used as a gunnery target. RAM is maxed out at 16GB, but it does well for a test rig.

I read the previous reviewers' concerns with heat dissipation and decided to buy the board anyway. It's running a Core i7-2600 cooled by a molex-connected Noctua NF-P14 FLX 140mm (intake) fan and a motherboard-controlled Scythe S-Flex SFF21G 120mm (exhaust) fan. The machine is all but silent, and I haven't noticed the motherboard ramping up fan RPM.

It's nice that Intel is protecting both its customers and its own reputation by raising awareness of temperature mangement in SFF builds, but I would have preferred a warning sticker to the halt-screen click-thru they've coded into the BIOS. There goes any chance of me using this board in a headless system in a business environment.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Impressive feature set for a mini-itx board: PCIe x16, mPCIe, USB 3.0 & SATA 6G. As usual with intel boards, it comes with some fancy (and useful) stickers/manuals that are pretty helpful in setting up the board.

Cons: Could never get uEFI to work properly, but that's not an essential feature yet, so I'm not particularly bothered.

Other Thoughts: This board isn't meant for overclocking or 'enthusiast' use, it's designed to be a simple yet featureful board for desktop use, and it does a pretty good job of that. Mine is set up as an htpc with an i3-2120 & 8gb RAM and it's almost as powerful as my desktop with an i5-650. The mPCIe socket is perfect for WiFi cards, which are pretty much a requirement for htpcs.

4 out of 5 eggsThis board does not support a Core i7!

Pros: Very small. Fit nice in my Lian Li PC-Q25B case. Only a few SATA ports but I plan on getting a SAS Raid card over PCIe which this board supports. It has met most of my expectations but BEWARE to review my cons.

Cons: This board does not support a Core i7 processor. If you go to the specification site on

You'll notice that this board supports up to and including a 65W processor. There is no 65W Core-i7. I didn't realize this until after I bought the board and installed the processor when warnings flew everywhere.

I'm disappointed in NewEgg's spec sheet about this flaw. I ended up having to lose $119 if you include shipping this puppy back in addition to the hit NewEgg took off for being an open box item.

I should not have had to pay a dime to return it since their spec sheet is wrong but I did.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg should have honored their incorrect specs and allowed me to get another processor for the difference. But they didn't and claimed it was my fault for buying the wrong part.

That aside, if you don't count NewEgg's SNAFU then I would have given this board 5 stars for the hardware performance. Not sure how reliable it is yet since I've only had it for about 3 weeks. But it's still going strong so I recommend it.

4 out of 5 eggsIS 95 W TDP compatible

Pros: Good layout, 2 DVI ports.

Cons: Board came with BIOS ver. 46, I updated to 54 (current). In 54 (at least) there is no way to manually set the RAM timings (even after selecting user-defined), I tried disabling Management Engine (which allows you to disable the onboard LAN - jmiles82), no joy.

I'm using 2x4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws item #N82E16820231440, which specs at 7-7-7-24, but because I can't manually set timings I get 8-9-9-24.
Probably just a BIOS bug, and for the slight performance hit, I'm not willing to try different (previous) BIOS versions. Even though this is a personal PC build for my boss.

Contradicting 95 W TDP compatible info. Though closer examination of the facts reveals that if you use a i7-2600 with an S-spec of SR00B (current), and a motherboard AA #G12529-301 (I got a -306) or higher, and a BIOS version of 41 & up, it IS compatible with a Core i7-2600.
However, if you read the spec pdf, section 1.4 on pg. 14,
it warns that in a mini-ITX chassis, the stock intel HSF MAY not be sufficient.

Other Thoughts: Using a good chassis/case with excellent airflow (I used the Lian-li PC-Q11B) you will not have a problem. Intel is just saying select the case carefully.

I have an ASRock mobo with an i7-2600 in this same case, and it's been awesome for months now.
