Intel DP67BG motherboard issues - pt 1

Posted 03-05-2012 at 07:11 PM by Rod3775

This motherboard comes with a wireless dongle for connection to an internal USB header, cable included. It also comes with enough SATA cables for army (at least in the retail package). The metal backplate that goes around the external connectors is very fat a springy, and I had to pre-mash it in order to mount the motherboard in my tower. The wireless dongle stays inside the case, and must be mounted on a plastic surface so the signal can get out. Unfortunately, my tower has only metal panels for unused front panel slots (the usual spot). But my tower has a partial plastic side so you can see all the 'blinkin lights' (and there are a LOT of them), so I mounted it there. The board has extensive hardware monitoring, but uses an NCT6775 chip, which is not supported in the stable release. See http://khali.linux-fr.org/devel/misc/w83627ehf for the driver. I have a configuration file for it if anyone is interested. Next episode - the dongle.
