I can second this - I bought one after a recopmmendation on this
list for a dual core Opteron board to replace a rather flaky MSI.
It has performed magnificently, and is comletel stable, plus being
well supported by FreBSD 9amd64 in my case). I run Adaptec SCSI
controllers, and the onboard NIC's are good quality as well.
