5 out of 5 eggsGreat linux compatible board

Pros: Swapped this board in to replace an ECS group motherboard, and Ubuntu Linux (http://www.ubuntulinux.org) booted up just fine, no major changes involved with the switch.

The BIOS control of overclocking settings was very clean and useful. They also placed the CMOS reset in an easy to reach location on the motherboard.

Cons: The supplementary 4 pin power connector socket is placed too close to the 20 pin. If you have a power supply that has an oddly shaped supplementary power connector it might be hard to fit, since the 20 pin socket and the 4 pin are directly adjacent.

Other Thoughts: Power connector layout.

[-------] <-- 20 pin connector
[--] <-- 4 pin connector.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sets up quickly and is rock solid stable - like every EpoX MB I've built with since the K6-2 days. That's more than 2 dozen boards for myself, family and customers.

Cons: Must update BIOS before doing anything else. In the last couple years EopX seems to realease boards before the BIOS has been properly debugged, but it's a breeze to do with EpoX boards. The USDM Beta provided does not work very well, but using Motherboard Monitor solves that problem for the most common values.

Other Thoughts: I've been running 3 of these for nearly 1 year (all from NewEgg, of course). None have given me any trouble. All running 2500+ Bartons and one OC'd to 3200. All are stable and dependable. Why pay more when you can get such a dependable product at this price?

5 out of 5 eggsLEMON

Comments: Ok the board works and it's stable enough but the vendor has a fan speed and sys temp monitor called USDM (Unified System Diagnostic Mangager) THAT DOESN'T WORK!!! I have the Thermal Tech Tsunami Dream tower with two fans that have monitoring leads and the stupid USDM saw only one of them to begin with and now it doesn't even report from that fan any more!! Good news I can see all three of my "monitored fans" (including cpu fan) in bios so I know it's a high level software issue. Maybe, just maybe the vendor will fix this problem. Don't count on it though. If you have to have a VIA 880 chipset see if you can't get an ASUS...somewhere...not here any more unfortunately. At least I got one...64 bit here I come~~

Comments: This is a really good deal here, for only $49.99 this is a great motherboard to use and start out with a custom pc, especially I am the one building it myself. I recommend this to any beginning custom pc.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board for Linux Debian!

Comments: Bought this board a while ago and installed it now to replace an Abit KT7A. Use it with an Athlon XP Thoroughbred 2700+.
Ran immediately. I forgot to set the date which pointed to Nov.10 2004 and had to use BIOS to change the primary display to AGP.
I run a 2-seat multiuser Ruby kernel 2.6.10-ruby.vz2 and so there are 2 videocards (MX440 PCI and TNT2 AGP), 2 IBM keyboards (into the top 2 miniplugs) and 2 mice (into the first 2 USB slots).
The USB addresses had changed from the last mobo and the PCI addr had changed for the MX440.
2 displays with 2 servers came up just fine.
I am still having trouble with sound although I have snd-via82xx loaded and the mixer is up. Also with the sensors display although I have i2c-viapro loaded. Minor details.
Newegg was great as usual.
Too bad I can no longer go for coffee while a kernel compilation is running! Board + CPU are too fast!

4 out of 5 eggs

Comments: Very solid, stable board. Not as fast as an NF2 board, but a lot more stable. Installed without a hitch. Has some good, simple O/C features. Dual channel and SATA are a plus. Gets a minus for not having locked AGP/PCI clock like NF2. Overall I'm very satisfied with the stabilty. So far zero problems or crashes.

5 out of 5 eggsThis Board Rocks With Barton!!

Comments: Absolutely superb performance running 24/7 with my Athlon XP 3000+ Barton CPU, Thermaltake Silent Boost heatsink & fan, and 2Gb Corsair ECC Registered PC3200 DDR memory running dual channel. I had no setup problems at all, everything went flawlessly. NewEgg is the best, and FedEx delivers with lightning speed. I'm totally satisfied!! AAA+++++++++

5 out of 5 eggsAnother great EpoX MB

Comments: I've been using EpoX MB's since the K-6/2 days and this is one of the best socket A boards they have put out. As always, it sets up easily provided you follow some simple rules, and the BIOS <font>u</font>pdates are a breeze. I especially like the ATX-12V configuration since I use a lot of 12V accessories in my full tower cases. NewEgg, as always you rock, too. Nearly always get my shipments a day early and well packaged!

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: A nice, solid design. Didin't come with SATA cables (grrr). Otherwise a -very- well-behaved board. Does S3/STR beautifully unlike many boards I have had that are horribly finnickey about S3.
