Default Intel D975XBX2 "Bad Axe 2" Motherboard

The overall performance, overclocking capabilities, price and BIOS options on Intel's D975XBX2 are nothing special, but it's still a decent board in the grand scale of things. Under stress, stability is just not as good as other boards, despite the engineering prowess behind it and this being Intel's flagship performance desktop motherboard.

We've seen boards that cost less run through our torture test for at least 24 hours straight without issue (and well beyond that in some cases, too). To only manage 10 hours is a bit of a problem. Thus there is really very little that this motherboard offers the consumer over what else is available on the market for either performance desktop or entry level workstation. In many cases, competing boards offer more stability, more unique features, or simply cost much less
