I had tried two other boards with my Intel E5400 Processor without success. When I put the G31m in it worked the first time, and works well with Windows 7 installed. Very fast and problem free.
Good board, easy install. More SATA ports would be nice, but for a general use PC it works well. Placement of the connectors on the board are good. Works great with my Intel E5200 processor.
Awesome gaming board accepted my intel E3300 without a problem. $22 great price. Only thing wrong with my board was 3 bent pins. I used a small screw driver to bend them back and it works great.
