This review is from: Intel BOXDP67BGB3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great overall motherboard, plenty of expansion, Ease of use with bios and the intel extreme tuner utility. so far runs great. Like the skull motif in the board.
Cons: Hates having its cpu fans externally controlled and not plugged into the board. Pops the airflow message if they arent plugged in. May be just me but why is it that every fan uses a 3 prong plug when all motherboard plugs are 4 prong? Also hates having the 3 prong fans plugged in..refuses to boot if theyre installed. So fans are plugged into the cases fan controller.
Other Thoughts: consider making the board fan plugs the 3 prong plugs to accomodate most aftermarket fans or atleast put adapters with the board. otherwise good boardREAD FULL REVIEW

Pros: Runs cool 31c-52c, Looks extremely good in a black nzxt phantom case, 3-pci-e slots but the lowest one is almost useless because its on top of the psu(if your psu is mounted in the upper part of the case this doesnt matter). Really good with ease of use if your fans are externally controlled..doesnt give the inspect your case for air-flow message like my intel dp67bg board does
Cons: Lower most pci-e slot practically useless with a bottom mounted psu. Could be a bad heat trap if on-board fan goes out. For my needs no cons at this time beingREAD FULL REVIEW
