5 out of 5 eggsAbit MBoards

Pros: Every Abit board I have use have been GREAT!
You have to be careful with them, because they have alot of features on the board.
I use every caution to keep it Cool.
My main system suppors Routers, 4 camera, Video Rec, Three Sata Harddrv, Three DVD Drv,Zip Drives and it runs cools with the proper cooling. I even have coolers on my Memory (Patriot). The Patriot Memory I 've purchase for Newegg has been running like a champ!

Cons: Guru information could be a little more straight forward for beginners. But the high end boards are not for beginners

Other Thoughts: Make sure you use a reliable steady power source.
This can make or break a good board.
Newegg gets all of my business. I hate when Newegg is out of stock and I have to the OTHER web stores

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible MB

Pros: Newegg got here fast.

Cons: Doesn't boot- sticks at post code C1. Technical support at Abit never responds. Abit charges $7 +$20 for cross shipping a replacement. Doesn't work with 1.9v or above RAM, changed ram to 1.8v doesn't work. tried clearing CMOS doesn't work. Tried removing battery doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: This is the third manufacturer of MB's I have gotten no response from Tech support when I find an issue with their MB. I have built hundreds of custom machines and Abit is the worse customer support I have found next to EVGA.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job well

Pros: XP SP3 install was a breeze. Installed all drivers from disc, and updated as necessary. Came with Bios V 16.
Using Raptor for main drive and 6 TB drives JBOD for my dvd library. Using E4600, booted up fine.

Cons: Bios in in pink instead of blue.

Other Thoughts: Had to set the SATA to AHCI from IDE to make it recognize all the TB drives. Works very well. All working concurrently on Vista MC!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Plenty of ports for a good low price.
Reliable, run cool and quiet.

Cons: Abit site show this product as discontinue, so this may be a problem as future unfold. It could mean no more bios update and no more new CPU support.
The BIOS doesn't have boot menu, where you can select boot device after POST w/o going into BIOS. And that's a big point reduction for me.

Other Thoughts: I brought this board along w/ E2180 to build it as a file server. And it's perfect for it. 9 SATA ports and 1 eSATA. It's made for a file server. I have it ran 24/7 for a few days now w/o any problem.

2 out of 5 eggsOK while it lasted

Pros: Lots of SATA Ports, SPDIF, overclockable, cheap

Cons: Randomly died while I was watching a movie. Post code 9.0. Had to fix the 2A post code when I first got it. It's picky about RAM. Takes some work to get it running just right.

Other Thoughts: If it hadn't died all of a sudden it would have still been only an ok mobo.

3 out of 5 eggsNot impressed

Pros: Lots of built in devices, well layed out board, excellent CPU compatibility

Cons: Lots of built in devices, it has two SATA controllers and one IDE controller built in! to handle the 10 SATA ports which causes there to be a lot of shared resources which tends to lead to system whackyness and general instability highlighting the boards next major con. It wasn’t stable until I flashed the bios to the latest release(on top of shutting off unused devices…..using floppies…. this is 2008! flashing BIOSes with floppies when out at least 5 years ago! what a huge PITA. Some other minor annoyances poor drivers for 64-bit OS’es mainly sound and uGuru?(I could not find a 64-bit driver for the uGuru device)

Other Thoughts: This will be the last Abit board i buy unfortunately

2 out of 5 eggsHassle

Pros: The usual, 10 SATA, 2 gigabit LAN, SPDIF, etc...

Cons: This board is too much hassle. You have to constanly reset things, pull jumpers off, play in the BIOS, update it, tweak. It is here and there, but just gets to be so tiring. If you want a board that just works, look elsewhere!

Other Thoughts: I wish this board was stable! Spec wise, it is a truly awesome board! Do as I didn't do... READ THE REVIEWS FIRST! Don't let the specs sell you on this board!
