working fine on Z68

on 7/10/2011

I've installed on Intel's Z68 motherboard with stock air cooling. The built-in Intel HD Graphics (HDMI) is working fine for my Windows 7. I am not a gamer and enjoy avoiding the expense/power/heat/noise of a discrete graphics card. Measured from wall my PC is often using just under 50 watts (not including monitor), although peak can be closer to 100w watts.

Super fast!

Man does this thing scream! I have it in an Intel DH67CL mobo and I am very impressed. I haven't tried gaming or editing video yet but I am sure that it will handle them with no problem.
