Intel BOXDG33BUC LGA 775 Intel G33 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Details on Linux 11/19/2007

This review is from: Intel BOXDG33BUC LGA 775 Intel G33 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: 2nd board I have purchased. Both very reliable and work well.

Cons: Bought Newegg "Open Box" of this boxed motherboard. You just get the motherboard wrapped in bubblewrap. No box no nothing.

RAM is 1.8v only

No overclocking

Disappointed that Intel makes modern chipsets that burn so much power despite running adverts claiming to be "green".

Other Thoughts: Bit tricky under linux.

Need pci=nommconf line on kernel boot line (in grub)

SATA works on recent kernels

Intel latest GbE ethernet chip is not supported by 'e1000' in kernel source tree - you need to download and compile the driver (not hard).

G33 X windows driver is very tricky - does not seem to be supported by any off the shelf kernels yet. Lots of different bits need recompiling. I am using this machine as a headless server so I didn't bother. Would strongly advise against using on-board graphics with Linux.

Pros: Fast printing. Quick warm up.
And the toner actually sticks on the paper!

Cons: Newegg stick the shipping label over the UPC. Result => fiddly to uncover UPC for rebate.

Other Thoughts: Seems robust. Time will tell.
