2 out of 5 eggsPITA!

Pros: After figuring out how to make this mobo work, it works fine.

Cons: I invested at least 30 hours into this stupid motherboard to make it work simply because I had no choice. The online store I bought it from only has a 15 day return policy, and it took almost that long to get to me. So either I got it working, or it went straight in the trash, at a loss of $95 bucks.

Long story short, this motherboard comes with a floppy RAID/AHCI driver disc, BUT IT HAS NO FLOPPY PORT ON IT!!!! I tried using USB work around's, but after twenty failed attempts, I gave up.

Finally I found some info online about creating a new Windows XP Pro disc with the most current RAID drivers 'slip-streamed' onto a new BOOTABLE XP CD.

If you're pulling out your hair or simply want to smash things over the mobo, do yourself a favor and look up 'nlite'. You'll save yourself hours of frustration, anger, kicking small animals, etc.

Other Thoughts: I hate hate hate this motherboard and will never go this route again. 'Beat it to fit, paint it to match' should not apply to stuff like this.

5 out of 5 eggsEdit previous post

Pros: Mother board works good. Have had no problems with it.
The Mfg's website has a tool to select the proper CPU for thier MBs.

Cons: As floppy enterface.
BUT...used a USB floppy and the MB saw it as A:drive instantly and I was able to use it at boot.

Other Thoughts: The problem with the DVD/CD drives was a Windows problem and not the MB. I had two identical DVD/CD-Roms. Windows was confused with two drives that are identical. It would load one or the other or neither. I purchased a different DVD/CD-Rom and both are recognized.

2 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: none that I can tell...

Cons: It was DOA... I am submitting an RMA to newegg (who is usually pretty good about RMAs) So I'll review it again when I get the new (and hopefully not defective) mobo.

4 out of 5 eggsDG45ID

Pros: Is an easy setup, audio sounds amazing (although I'm only using 2.1 stereo, and plan to get at least 5.1 surround), easy to use BIOS screen, and has upgrade potential for the average, budgeted computer builder. Has a 32-bit 5V PCI slot! Also good for DIY HTPC. 8GB capacity of RAM. Cool board.

Cons: Be careful of the I/O panel, especially the HDMI port, it snuck up on me!! There is a tab that you should remove, otherwise it sticks into the HDMI port upon install. Saw an earlier review with the same trouble, so i used wire cutters and the port works fine. Always double check the I/O panel before the install. Video is okay for DVD playback, but it's on-board graphics... I've had this for 3 months, and for online streaming, it's a little choppy, so I plan on upgrading to a 1GB 128-bit graphics card.... still don't know which one... Very few legacy options, no PS2 ports. Oh well.

Other Thoughts: Setup--
Rosewill case combo w/ 450w PSU
Intel Core 2 Duo e7600
4GB G.SKILL 800 MHz DDR2 RAM (2x2GB)
250GB Seagate HDD
XP 64-bit

--also the "annoying" beep when you first turn it on isn't that bad, i think people are looking for an absolutely silent
machine, but for the price it's not bad, and it can do a lot for a mATX!!

3 out of 5 eggsGood board - poor quality

Pros: Features

Cons: Within 5 minutes on the BIOS setup screen the screen forms horizontal lines and locks up. This is with only 1 memory DIMM in place and only one hard drive. RMA'ed.

Other Thoughts: RMA'ed the board hoping the second one is better

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: lots of features in a cheap mATX

Cons: none of those features work if the board is DOA

Other Thoughts: front panel pin mapping on included case sticker is incorrect; it's an inverted image of the correct pin map.

2 out of 5 eggsNIC Died

Pros: I reviewed this previously and gave it 5 eggs. Because it worked when it arrived and was insanely easy to install.

Cons: The NIC died in just under 2 weeks total ownership, right after I wrote my 5 egg review. I still gave it 2 eggs because of the chance that the reason it died could have been due to environmental issues.

Other Thoughts: Newegg took good care of me. 100% refund and paid for return shipping. I temporarily used an android phone with PDANet as a wifi ubs adapter. Almost no cell service but the droid connected to wifi, and PDANet shared the wifi to the PC.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Solid board

Pros: Very solid feature rich board with the DVI and HDMI plus allowing up to 256MB for the Video. (Offers 128, 256 or max (not sure what the max is as it is not well documented)). Board automatically detects primary video if another PCIe card is installed even if you do not set it up in the bios selection. Plenty of room and nice overall layout. Also one of the few boards that supports 4 - DD2 at the same time as most support either 2 only or 2 of either DDR2 or DDR3. This was purchased to replaced a failing competitors board so we already had 4 - 1 GB DDR2 mem.

Cons: Reason for losing 1 egg: With the current BIOS you cannot disable the onboard video. Basically you can install a PCIe 16x card and even tell the BIOS that the PCIe 16x add-in card is your primary video and set the on board video to 128 yet for some strange reason the on board video is still stealing 256 MB of my RAM for something I am not even using. Searched documentation on Intel's site and the only mention was to "Disable" the on board video in the BIOS which after searching the BIOS 4 times with 2 sets of eyes there is NO OPTION to disable on board video in any way.
Very annoying especially as we've installed 4 GB on a 32bit OS and yet it takes it only from what Windows is able to address and not the part it cannot address. System is now running on 256 less MB than it use to on a competitors board. (A little expensive for an older board no longer supported by Intel).

Other Thoughts: Would make a great motherboard for a Multimedia PC setup to run movies, netflix and other stuff to a TV/LCD/PLASMA screen to.
