Not a bad board

ASUS P7Q57-M DO/CSM LGA 1156 Intel Q57 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P7Q57-M DO/CSM LGA 1156 Intel Q57 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I am currently using this motherboard to build the desktop standard with Win7 for a business. so far I have built 5 of these, and am ordering more now. I paired it up with a Core i3 530 and 2GB of Kingston Memory. This case is perfect for this board IN WIN BK644.BN300TBL.

Cons: One of the boards said CPU Fan Fail on every boot even tho the fan was working fine, new fan same thing. Returned it and replacement board is fine..

Overall Review: AMT is pretty cool.. need to put some research into some tools I can use with this for jumping into someones desktop to help them when needed.

Most Critical Review

Errors!!

OCZ 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3X1600R2LV6GK
OCZ 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3X1600R2LV6GK

Pros: OCZ Support is quick to answer the phone

Cons: Product does not work as advertised

Overall Review: After loading the XMP in the bios of my P6T and running Memtest, in under a minute it finds thousands of errors... by trial and error found one of the sticks will not show errors after running for around 10 mins.. Will be returning this kit..

Nice Dual monitor intel motherboard

Intel BOXDQ35JOE LGA 775 Intel Q35 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel BOXDQ35JOE LGA 775 Intel Q35 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The dual monitor support drew me to this motherboard to begin with.. I custom build desktops at my workplace and this is the current motherboard I am using. I prefer the realtek sound on this motherboard.. some other intel moterboards use the sigmatel which does not allow you to uninstall them completely!

Cons: The early bios versions had issues, which seem to have been worked out with the 704 bios ..

Nice Server CPU

Intel Xeon 5140 Woodcrest 2.33GHz 4MB L2 Cache LGA 771 65W Dual-Core 2U Passive Processor
Intel Xeon 5140 Woodcrest 2.33GHz 4MB L2 Cache LGA 771 65W Dual-Core 2U Passive Processor

Pros: I had a server built with this cpu and it rocks! Nothing slows it down so far. Runs much cooler then previous Xeons.

Cons: no cons

Overall Review: Woodcrest with 1333 bus is a real sweet spot for performance vs price.

Good LCD

ViewSonic Value Series VA712B 17" SXGA 1280 x 1024 D-Sub, DVI-D Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor
ViewSonic Value Series VA712B 17" SXGA 1280 x 1024 D-Sub, DVI-D Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor

Pros: Packaging was good, one LCD box came somewhat crushed and the LCD came out perfect. Easy Setup. Comes with both cables! built in speakers (tweeters). I use a splitter and just added the LCD speakers to my current speakers and it sounds better. No dead pixels out of 20. Great picture quality. Brightness is perfect, not to much or to dark.

Cons: blue popup box telling you its switching modes.

Overall Review: We ordered 20 of these, and are planning on ordering another 20.
