OCZ Special Ops 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ3SOE13334GK
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Plug n Play, did a little research found that MB only supports 4 G of 1600 so I stuck with this. Glad I did will add another 4 gig soon as well as another video card. Did a bench mark with passmark 6.1 all was well above average.

Cons: None so far

4 out of 5 eggs Great MB Support a little sketchy 12/23/2008

This review is from: Intel BOXDX48BT2 LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Good hardware nice layout very stable.

Cons: Be careful of the following.
1. Bios SATA settings Secondary controller needs to be IDE unless your CD is SATA.
2. Very difficult to install from an "upgrade", XP needed a floppy would not see drivers on CD and no FLASH drive support. Will need a USB floppy because there is no support on board for floppy.
3. Tried to upgrade to new BIOS using .exe method crashed the SATA raid array. had to reinstall the whole system.
4. Updated HD audio driver has issues do some research.
5. There is no upgrade from XP pro 64 to Vista Ultimate 64 clean install only.
This might seem like a lot but if I would have done a little research I could have precluded these problems.
That is why I'm putting it here. Down load the Manual check the web, this is a great board it is just the peripherals that get in the way. I do have the CPU over clocked to 3 Gig with no issues.
