In recent times, choosing a motherboard cannot be completely determined by a Winstone score. Now, many boards come within one Winstone point of each other and therefore the need to benchmark boards against each other falls. Therefore you shouldn't base your decision entirely on the benchmarks you see here, but also on the technical features and advantages of this particular board, seeing as that will probably make the greatest difference in your overall experience.

In one sentence, HOT-571, decent board...above average features, average performance, below average stability.
As long as you don't expect to do much overclocking, the HOT-571 is a worthy successor to the HOT-565/569, however the minute you decide to get the most out of your system going with the 571 becomes much less of an "intelligent" decision and more of a regretted one. Fortunately, if you want all the features of a Shuttle motherboard, with the added stability and option to overclock, Shuttle has provided us with another solution...its name? The Shuttle HOT-567.
