3 out of 5 eggsforget windows

Pros: fine for a low-end board. not a screamer, but it does the job.

Cons: Oh my... after first trying to get it going as a linux server, with raided HD's, etc., I finally gave up after trying every solution i could find online. Seemed linux wasn't quite ready for the nvidia drivers. The was back in Feb' 08. Then tried XP pro, only to get blue screen after blue screen. All i could figure was it was either a memory/hardware, memory software, CPU cooling, or ??? Single-channel memory was kind of a surprise, my bad for not doing my homework.

Other Thoughts: The board went to the closet for a while. I resurrected it, changed the processor, implemented a fan directly on the CPU cooler, (which already had its own fans), thinking it may be problematic, got it going, this time on Mandriva, absolultely no crashes. Nothin at all against Mandriva, but i began trying other distros & ended up on Dreamlinux. Runs like a....you know. Added an ATI 1550 VGA card, do an apt get ATI-install, (or subst. nvidia if you go with on-board vid.). Got sound working with ASLA drivers. probably won't be doing RAID, but likely could.

1 out of 5 eggspoor chipset for raid - update

Pros: I was able to return it

Cons: Raid is utterly non-functional.
I'm not sure whether this is the known defect-by-design, in that the board mfg selected a chipset known to not implement the required functions correctly, or if this particular unit is more broken than most.

I was never able to get XP to load using the mfg provided raid drivers. XP Setup simply refused to recognize them.

And yes, Virginia - I know how to make a boot floppy and supply the mass storage drivers during setup.

I tried going with a pata optical, no change.
Flashed bios to latest version - no change.

I decided to give up on the nvidia chipset, and went with an intel board instead.

With the Intel board, setup was uneventful - highest praise I can give to hardware.

No need to use a pata optical, I was able to return to all sata.

Other Thoughts: Choose this board if you will never need raid, and will never use a sata optical drive, or if you really love the color blue.

2 out of 5 eggspoor chipset for raid

Pros: Inexpensive, nice sata raid features - on paper...

Cons: Nvidia chipset.
Because there are serious known issues with the nvidia chipset and sata optical drives, it's not possible to build an all sata XP box from scratch based on this board.
Nvidia's solution is straight out of the Marx Brothers:
"Doc - it hurts when I do this"
Groucho: "Don't do that."
Basically, if you have a sata optical drive, you can't load the nvidia drivers - and you can't do bootable raid without them.
Last custom box I bought locally, the builder warned me against non-Intel chipsets for onboard raid.
He was right.
I put an ide optical drive in to test - still can't run xp setup - F6 refuses to copy the files, even though they are recognized - and without them I get a bsod.

Other Thoughts: What really annoys me is that Nvidia is quite aware of the problem, and has no solution.
Their workaround is to turn the raid functionality off, which is unacceptable, or to use an ide optical drive, which is equally unacceptable.
I didn't buy this from NewEgg - I needed to put another box together quickly, so I purchased locally.
No more nvidia for me!

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I do like MSI boards. I have had a lot of luck with them in the past

Cons: Didn't work from the get go. When trying to install the video device during XP install, screen went crazy, and install just hung there at 34 minutes. Tried it again same issue. Did have some major screen flickering earlier in the process, but I had chalked that up to a bad memory stick I had purchased. I'm going to chalk this up to a bad board scenario. It happens. I'm hoping the replacement will be ok

5 out of 5 eggskool little board but no firewire

Pros: small size everything is clearly labeled easy to set up onboard video is kool for everyday use and if your not a serious gamer. no problems yet will get a card later if i need it. also it can use A-data memory (not a listed brand on on msi site) it work no problems yet

Cons: bummer only holds 4 gigs of memory (newegg says 8 gigs) plus no onboard 1394/firewire there is a place that is labeled 1394 but no pins so you need to buy a pci card if you need firewire also the user guide page 2-16 shows a 1394 optional bracket but one end looks like you need pins to hook it to the mother board . so i dont know how that would help

Other Thoughts: small size fits nicely in to a X Q-pack 2 case (apevia) with extra room i have the red one so the red mb looks kool (wish it didnt have green memory slots) everything in my case is red, i'm doing a FMA casemod (i love edward elric) so it has red led fans, red heatsinks, red fireflies, uv red sata cables, red leds in my power supply and red cat tubes

had problems with intel's push pins dont kow if it was the boards, mine or intels but it took 10 pins to get the heat sink on first time thats ever happened to me it was a pain to find replacement pins

3 out of 5 eggsWRONG INFORMATION

Pros: SOLID MOTHERBOARD

Cons: Newegg posted that this motherboard uses up to 8GB RAM, IT CAN ONLY HANDLE ACCORDING TO MSI AND MY TESTS IS 4GB RAM- Supports Single channel DDR2 533/667/800 memory interface up to 4GB

Other Thoughts: Intel Core 2 DUO 2.40GHZ
windows vista ultimate
4GB RAM
western Digital 320GB SATA 3GB HDD

4 out of 5 eggsUsually great!

Pros: This is one of my favorite mobo's. I've built several systems using this model. I like the built in DVI, memory upgradeable to 8GB's using the new 4GB sticks and the Gigabit LAN. Usually a very stable motherboard.

Cons: The last one I received was defective from the start. It would freeze (lockup) even when in the bios. Tried another mobo that was exactly the same model and it was fine. Bound to get a defective one once in a while I guess. That's why I rated it a 4 instead of a 5.

Other Thoughts: As always Newegg is fast in shipping and great at replacing defective parts under warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Motherboard

Pros: I paired this board with a Pentium dual-core E2200, 4GB of GSkill DDR2 800 RAM, and two 320GB SATA hard disks (RAID1) to use as a basic server, so the quality of the onboard video/audio was a non-issue for me. The board is well laid out, and the features are excellent for a basic system. Took less than 15 minutes for me to get this assembled and booted. Contrary to previous reviews, I have had zero lock-up issues with this board. BIOS is version 2.1, I believe.

Cons: Single-channel memory is a bummer, but that hasn't drastically impacted performance yet. Front panel connectors were a bit odd because the pinout order was inverted between the two sets. Documentation is very skimpy.

Other Thoughts: I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 LTS on this system, so I don't know if that has any impact on my lack of lock-up issues thus far.

4 out of 5 eggsDDR 800 works!!

Pros: Okay guys my second review. It is not an MSI lock up issue it is a Microsoft XP SP2 issue. When I put a 2gb ddr and Vista w/SP1 it is rock solid. I hope this helps anyone struggling. Using Corsair 2GB XMS2 ram, 2160 Intel with WD360gb for my daughter's system. I flash the bios to 2.1 and the auto memory settings put this dead on to 1.9v for the ram and timing. Using a Raidmax Sagitta case with 500w ps.

Cons: Poor documentation at MSI on this board

Other Thoughts: Has a DVI port and when you push past 1gb the graphic mark for the internal video in Vista climbs from 1.0 to 3.0. Later I will get a Q6600 for her. Perfect board for a student who isn't gaming. Chipset works great with Samsung 19inch TFT.

4 out of 5 eggsTesty but good

Pros: I read an earlier note about an e8400 install and you need to flash the bios to 2.1 for that cpu. The video is great for everyday use. But if you want gaming video buy a 1.0 pcie screamer card for that. Have a 2160 for my daughter with this and will upgrade to a core to quad later since she does lots of art. I will also upgrade her video at the same time. Easy to install board and all in all solid with both xpsp2 and vista 64 bit sp1. The wd 320 drive only gets the full partition under 64 bit vista business.

Cons: DDR memory controller blue screens corsair ram past 1 gb. I will be trying the voltage solutions from an earlier post to see if this corrects. MSI should have corrected this in the bios for the auto settings on the ram. For this I give 4 instead of 5 stars.

Other Thoughts: Always keep the bios up to date if you are upgrading processors. Make sure you confirm with the MSI website if your cpu will work before laying down your cash. If you use sp1 for vista and disable UAC xp pro is no longer worth keeping. This board does better with Vista.
