I built a machine mainly for audio production only to find that most audio guys are stearing clear of this board! I know, my bad for not looking deeper before diving in. But I have always been please with intels boards.
The problem I'm having is that my PCI expansion chassis is not working on this board as it should. I have an Avid branded conventional PCI expander with 3 UAD-1 cards (audio DSP) intalled. what is happening is that only one of the cards gets an IRQ assigned. The other 2 are seen in the windows hardware profile but are non-funtional.
Other audio guys are reporting that the PCIe slots are not working for te UAD-2 PCIe cards they own. I hate to throw away a brand new expensive mother board!!!
I'm using windows 7 ultimate RC but I doubt this is OS issue as I ran this config on my other computer with the exact same OS with no trouble.
