I've been running an X5DAE for a handful of months now. This is essentially
the same board as the X5DA8 but without the embedded scsi host adapter (as we
already had access to qlogic scsi cards for that).
Running XP Pro SP-1+, it gets pounded all day.
It has never, ever crashed.
They got this board right...
