5 out of 5 eggsDiscontinued! Why?

Pros: Great motherboard so far. This board gives the older socket 775 owners a great way to upgrade without spending a whole lot of money on a new processor. Works great with the Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe 1.86GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor. Plus it allows you use DDR3 1333 Mhz memory up to 8 Gb's which gives it more boost.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I like the idea of mixing old technology with new so I would definately buy another. Thanks MSI for coming up with this!

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely love this board

Pros: *DDR3
*ALC889 (best current integrated audio chip)
*Good layout
*With good fans this mobo runs 'em silent

Cons: *Zero. Zip. Nada.

Other Thoughts: Running Xubuntu 12.04 x64 with a Q9550, 8gb Gskill RAM, XFX GeForce 8400 videocard, and Chaintech AV710 soundcard. I did try the onboard sound too and it runs well in Xubuntu, but went with the discrete card because it has the front audio port connection for my older InWin case. So many motherboards cheap out on the sound chip but this one doesn't. Everything runs top-notch. Cool, quiet, and stable. The Rosewill RNX-N150PCe wifi card also works out of the box with Xubuntu. Finally have a perfect Linux box (for me) and this mobo is what made that possible. Love it!

1 out of 5 eggsNIC Problems

Pros: Installed easily

Cons: I have 2 of these motherboards. Had I tried to use the onboard network controller on the first one, I would have discovered that not only does it fail to connect, a 3rd party PCI NIC also would not configure properly.

Now I've got TWO defective motherboards.

Other Thoughts: I spent a good part of the day looking for solutions online with no success so far. If I don't find a solution, both of these toilet boards are going back

1 out of 5 eggsThe Eggs were right

Pros: Nice small board, sturdy and easy to install in an ATX case low price as well.

Cons: Even though the board came loaded with the latest BIOS (28.10), DIMM2 slot did not want to take a stick from a matched pair of DDR3 1GB 1066 Crucial memory. With both DIMM slots loaded, the board power-on cycled without drives. With DIMM2 empty, the board booted okay. Using just 1 memory stick, I loaded the hard drive with WIN XP SP3. Then I went back to the DIMM2 issue. Loaded the second stick into DIMM2, checked the BIOS to make sure it appeared correctly and restarted the computer. The board started really rapid cycling and there was a loud clicking. I shut it down pretty quick but not fast enough. I removed the stick from DIMM2 and tried a cold boot. The hard drive was toast. Ran repair, disk scan, format, etc. Everything said unrecoverable error on drive. Seems the clicking was the stylus banging on the disks. Time to RMA the whole setup and look for something that works right the first time.

Other Thoughts: Should have listened to all the 1 EGGers. They were right. There are memory issues and BIOS problems with the board.

Also, even though it appeared the board would not POST, in retrospect, the board did POST from the outset. Problem was I could not see it until I realized the DVI connector doesn't work until you change the BIOS. MSI should advise you to use a VGA connector when building or fix the BIOS so the DVI works out of the box.

I have used MSI boards before and will likely do so again however, I will never use a board that gets multiple 1 or 2 EGGS again. Egg reviews are very helpful and informative!

5 out of 5 eggsUpdated Report

Pros: Continues to hum away.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is an update from my Jan 2011 review. I decided to retire the old Celeron D CPU in one of the two Acers I upgraded with this board. Decided to use an Intel E6500. I was a little apprehensive about the BIOS recognizing the new CPU and downright nervous that Win 7 would hiccup. Well, I'm happy to report that the BIOS picked up the E6500 CPU just fine and reported the correct clock speed, etc. It also handled the temperature and CPU fan control just fine (and better than with the old Celeron D CPU). The other interesting thing was that Win 7 did not complain and recognized the new CPU on the fly with no drama either. I continue to be happy with the two boards and their performance in my application.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware, Newegg lists wrong details

Pros: Board works but...

Cons: This board does NOT actually have PCI Express 2.0. It is ONLY a generation 1 slot. You can confirm this on MSI's site. I contacted Newegg but the rep did not want to correct the details on the site.

Other Thoughts: Good board if you don't want PCI-E ver 2.0

Overclockers beware that many users can only get a max fsb of 342 with this board.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat replacement motherboard

Pros: Perfect replacement for my dell vostro 400. Running a core 2 quad q6600 OC to 3ghz, Nvidia gtx465, G.SKILL Ripjaw 8gb ddr3.
Good bios, Perfect to replace a oem mobo if you want a little bit more flexibly as far as overclocking and DDR3 RAM!

Cons: Do We really need ps2 ports in 2011??? Not a con but i do not need them.

2 out of 5 eggsBack to 1998

Pros: Last week my Gigabyte mini-ATX failed with a loud pop. I needed a replacement, but my preferred MB seller, Gigabyte, has abandoned the PATA connection. And I must have an ALC889 codec. So -- I opted for this board.

It is what it is.

Cons: It should have been a fifteen minute installation project; it wound up costing me four frustrating hours.

WindowsXP, SP3 (updated through 9/12/2011) couldn't initialize the installation CD. Of course that meant numerous retries, numerous BIOS entries, reboots, Device Manager visits -- all to make sure the DVD player wasn't somehow the problem. And then, I looked in the closet for an old CD player; installed it; still no joy.

So -- download the drivers from the internet, you say, right? -- except I don't have network drivers to allow me to get there. Okay, there's an old MB and I do mean old (VIA PA-2013 with a 300MHz AMD chip and a 3COM Tulip NIC card) in the closet. An old hard drive -- the last of three installed and explored -- had WindowsXP, SP1 installed and an OEM drivers archive with VIA and 3COM drivers in it and wonder of wonders XP booted on the VIA board and recognized the NIC card. Installed MB and network drivers (no easy task) and I was on the internet - at 26k

Other Thoughts: Went to MSI's site and downloaded MB, network and SVGA drivers -- like watching grass grow. At least the Realtek network driver installed; not the SVGA driver (Windows said a required file was not included); and of course that corrupted file was the largest and most time consuming to DL. Went to Intel's site and downloaded the graphics package.

Four hours and I was finally up and running. I'm just not used to this kind of stuff happening nowadays. I don't need to relearn how to massage a NIC card -- especially without help from the net which I can't get to. (I can't even remember the word we used to use when making a peripheral play nice with the OS)

MSI Support (and you ain't Micro Star International) -- please don't leave your generic "so sorry" reply. I ain't buying it.
