Ease of Use

I've always been happy with Intel motherboards, and this one works fine for my purposes (after paying close attention to proper front panel connections which seemed painted with wrong colors). It can boot into Windows 7 faster than my older Intel motherboards.

So far, so good. No problem with FreeBSD

by Willamette River on 12/11/2011

Recent Intel motherboards seem to be not as stable and reliable as they used to be. It is proved as short BIOS update cycles. However, as always, I chose an Intel motherboard as a new desktop for my work. I installed FreeBSD 8.2 and it works with no problems. So far, my motherboard is stable, which is most important for me. I don't know with Windows but I believe the stability won't change with other operating systems.
