You get what you pay for with this board. It will NOT work with any stock mini-ATX PSU (which the cases I tried took). After Zotac telling me 2 times it's a bad PSU, then a bad motherboard (since it worked with a big ATX PSU, I was surprised by this)...I did some research and found out this thing has high +5V power requirements. I got a bigger mini-ATX PSU and all is well.
The built-in "RAID" just flat out sucks. When you disable it in the BIOS, it really isn't. It just removes the boot blocks. When a mirror partner dies, and you replace it, it doesn't think the array was ever critical, and doesn't rebuild. I eventually just gave up on the built in RAID.
Driver CD is just flat out wrong. It had drivers for a Realtek NIC, but this board has a NVidia NIC. I had to get the NVidia nForce driver set from NVidia's website to install everything.
I would never, ever buy another one of these again. This is my 2nd Zotac board, and I'm officially done with them since their customer service / tech support people are incompetent. I gave them every detail of the system, and they clearly don't know their own products.
