You can look at more of the Linux test results for this motherboard on OpenBenchmarking.org.

Aside from initial problems with this motherboard under Linux that seemed to cripple its performance, which were resolved by upgrading the BIOS when a new release was available and running the latest Linux kernel, the rest of the experience was smooth. This though is not extraordinary, as most Intel P67 motherboards should work just fine under Linux with zero difficulty. Most of the Sandy Bridge Linux issues are centered on using its integrated graphics and that really requiring the very latest development code for the most optimal experience.

The ECS P67H2-A2 motherboard is targeted for those wishing to now upgrade to Intel Sandy Bridge hardware but without breaking your budget. This ATX P67 motherboard can be found for $200 USD or less, which puts it at a much more affordable point than many of the other P67 motherboards on the market. This is not a bad value for the USB 3.0, SATA/eSATA 3.0, Qooltech III cooling, dual PCI Express 2.0 x16, and the various other features that this board boasts.
