Windows 7: Realtek ALC889

When I was reviewing the C2SBX, I was going to use the E8400 CPU with full 8Gb RAM, funny thing is I started to buy some of the support parts, Power supply, RAM, CPU cooler, Case, HD, but then had to put it all on hold after I finished a contract for a Launch down the Cape and then the job ended. Ended up using some of the parts for two different builds later on in time, updated an older Supermicro PDSLA which my Daughter still uses today for on-line games, and using the power supply for my workstation. I still have one spare CPU cooler that has no home, Enzotech Extreme-X, its a very large cooler.
As for the C7P67, using the i5 2500K and yes you can adj the voltages for cpu/ram by way of software but the fan speed reading and control has changed which takes some time to get used to, but I use an ext fan controller instead to control the two cpu fans as for the other onboard fan supports, I use them for the case fans with the setting set to Norm.
I have added a pic of the older PDSLA with cooler attached

I actually have an E8400 in my ASUS P5Q3 machine, but again only 4GB. I used an E6850 with 4GB in the C2SBX machine.

Actually both machines are very very similar in terms of case, PSU, fans, CPU cooler, video, Adaptec SCSI host card, SCSI/SATA hard drives, SCSI DAT tape drive, and overall design.

And both machines are still perfectly adequate for my needs today. I feel no urgent need to upgrade either one.

I'm glad I held off in a way, found from reviews that photoshop works better with loads of RAM so the C7P67 works well. Funny thing the older PLSLA is working very well for what it supports and it's older then most would keep around, the Prescott 3G CPU does run warm but it was design that way, about 100w.
You could use the quad core for the C2SBX if you have software support.

I know zero about AMD machines.

But this board doesn't have SATA3 or USB3, which would seem to be a big "missing".

Also, not that I would necessarily be using onboard graphics, but isn't a Matrox G200 (16MB, VGA) from the late 1990's? Obviously high-end video wasn't part of the design criteria.

Also, there doesn't seem to be any onboard audio.

Yes, it supports up to 128GB of memory (including ECC). This is certainly not common.

It seems there must be a very specific need for such an unusual machine, that doesn't seem intended for me anyway. I myself would have no interest in this board, I'm afraid.
