Performance was a bit above average when compared to other boards using the same hardware tests and was one of the faster boards tested so far as it got a 14 out of 15. Stability was a mixed bag as in the beginning we could not get our CPUs to run with HT technology and the scores were questionable. After the second board and BIOS flash things seemed to balance out a bit and the board then passed all our burn-in and performance tests. From what I have seen so far the i945/955 chipsets boards, do not bring much of an offering as far as sheer performance goes, but the board was still fast nontheless. All the tests were ran threee times to get a performance average and then balanced for accuracy.
