Solid board but only for those with Sandy in mind 07/12/2013
This review is from: Intel BOXDZ68BC LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Solid integrated controllers for all motherboard parts. Surprisingly good support for Windows XP as long as AHCI/RAID drivers are slipstreamed in install (motherboard has no floppy ports!)
No support for anything not on the disk provided by intel e.g. wifi and bluetooth as they aren't made by Intel nor directly monitored by them I guess. More of a last minute "condiment" to add to the spice of a gamer board. Worthless Ivy support as newer bios builds have been known to have issues with either overclocking support as a trade off for Ivy support.
Stick with Sandy chips and 1333 ram and you will be happy. Try to do Ivy and you either will be limited with troubleshooting overclocking or memory OR will enjoy beeps forever.
