Does the job

ECS BLACK SERIES P45T-A LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
ECS BLACK SERIES P45T-A LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Everything seems to work the way it is supposed to. Good price for the board, ample space for components.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Do i get brownie points for saying great job newegg? Just wondering. The SATA ports are in a bad place, they sit directly behind the hard drives if you have more than one. Not too hard to work around though. Doesnt have a firewire bus/connector on the board for the case's firewire port. Have not tried the overclocking features yet.

2nd DOA

Pros: Attempts to turn the fans

Cons: Will make the fans turn 1/4 turn, but nothing else. Tried two working power supplys, so i know its the MOBO. This is the second one that has done this to me.

Overall Review: Gotta love RMA. Two more and i get to pick a new one.

Decent performance
