Pros: No change. Still works. No problems.
Cons: One thing to look out for with this board is that it is the most sensitive board I've every had with respect to plugging stuff into it. The first time I plugged in memory, a sound card, and a bracket for the serial header the board beeped and was very unhappy. I fiddled with whatever the new thing was and the board eventually accepted it. So, if you think your new board is DOA, it might just need a bit of resetting of whatever you plugged into it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Xonar DS 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Audio Card
Pros: I've only tested the card with Debian Wheezy (testing at the moment). It's recognized automatically and it works.
Cons: The volume is rather low. So, I'm putting this card aside and going back to my SoundBlaster Live 5.1.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: My build consists of this board, a Core i3-2100 3.1GHz CPU, G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) RAM, an Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W power supply, and a pair of Western Digital RE4 WD5003ABYX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s drives (software RAID1). I installed Debian Wheezy (testing) with no issues. The integrated Intel graphics are quite good and the overall feel of the machine is quite snappy.
Cons: My only qibble with the board concerns a few of the hardware choices. I don't understand the logic of one 6 Gb/s port and five 3 Gb/s ports. Since I use software RAID1, I can't really sensibly use that odd SATA port, fast as it is. I also wish the board had a PATA and a floppy port, but I can live without them. Since I monitor my UPS via a serial line, it's a bit annoying that the mobo only has a serial header and I have to scrounge up a bracket to use it.
Other Thoughts: I've always preferred Asus's style of BIOS. Their new GUI BIOS is a bit of a shocker the first time you see it. I may learn to like it ...
My first attempt at a review slightly misfired as I got the P8B75-M LE (which I bought from newegg) and the P8B75-M/CSM confused. I have to suppose that the latter is probably pretty much the same as this board.
