  Gigabyte (Motherboard)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

CPU runs great
PCI-Express video card runs great
I/O USB 2.0 works fine
SATA III ports run fine
Corsair DDR3 1333 runs great

What doesn't work:

nothing yet

What was done to make it work:

Originally I had problems with installing Mint via USB Live Linux, but it turned out to be the way I was formatting the USB Flash drive.
Now I use the HP USB Formatting tool, then Linux USB Installer to create the bootable drive, but I don't format with it.

Additional notes:

I have not been able to test the USB 3.0 or PCI-Express 3.0 video cards.
