4 out of 5 eggsGood, but over-sells itself

Pros: Works well
Lots of SATA ports.
Software CPU overclock support.
Easily unlocked 4th core of Phenom II X3 720 (shows as X4 40 now)

Cons: Primary con is due to the ASMEDIA SATA, if enable it does not allow booting off of any other media! I'm not even sure if the RAID I had going was working while ASMEDIA was active, therefore to me ASMEDIA (= 2 SATA ports) is a dud.

Only a 4-Pin CPU power input.
For boasting 125w and OC, this board is sure putting a LOT of pressure on that cable.

As another reviewer mentioned, it has a distinct voltage droop problem when setting CPU voltage. (E.G. Set voltage to 1.4 = true voltage 1.376)

Unable to overvolt (aside from RAM) via BIOS, only with AMD Overdrive overclocking/overvolting was I able to achieve this.

Other Thoughts: Over all, I think it's great for a budget workstation machine, but if you want super-duper performance, or even a gaming budget speed-machine, look elsewhere.

4 eggs for that, cons aren't be too serious for people who don't fiddle with everything.

I'm gonna go for the GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 and hope for the best.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Value Board

Pros: I benched this board with an FX 6300 briefly before upgrading my HTPC Server. Boot time is slower then my other new motherboard's. Multithreaded tasks run like a dream and this system resolved my CPU bottle neck on a budget. I went with this board for price and the fact that it has 8 SATA ports which I need for all my Media Center Drives and DVR access for TV and Security Cameras. Solid State Capacitors are great for long life of the board.

Cons: BIOS is dated, when installing 3TB+ drives board try's to boot from those rather then OS drive on SATA port 0. USB 3 drivers required registering several JAVA dll's for the installer to complete successfully in my case. Would be nice if core system driver installer didn't need JAVA to install correctly.

Other Thoughts: Great Bang for the Buck which is always one of my main concerns. Paired with an FX 6300 you get a lot of horsepower. Old School BIOS menu included with this board stock.

5 out of 5 eggsBudget Board

Pros: For $55 you get plenty of features. I'm currently running a Phenom II 950BE stable at 3.7GHz and having no issues. I bought this board because my old MSI board finally kicked the bucket and now I figure I might as well get an FX series CPU for it.

Cons: Only 2 DIMM slots. I didn't realize this when I bought it, oh well.

Other Thoughts: Great budget board, coupled with something like an FX 8350 and a decent GPU and you could have a very affordable gaming PC.

3 out of 5 eggsBad memory slot

Pros: Decent feature set for a cheap board: USB 3.0 with a front panel heade and a pair of SATA 3.0 ports (though no RAID for them) being what really drew my attention.

Cons: Biggest con on mine is a defective memory slot. No POST if only slot 2 is occupied. When both slots are filled, BIOS shows "Physical memory" as only one slot worth but will show timings on second slot.

Other Thoughts: Tried memory kits from other machines, tried different CPUs to see if it was a memory controller problem, just a bad board. Everything else on it functions, but still a major malfunction.

4 out of 5 eggsMSI 760GMA-P34 review

Pros: This board is an interesting creation from MSI, bringing new life to a relatively dated motherboard chipset. It boasts high quality (albeit power limited) components, hybrid USB 3.0 and SATA III @ 5 Gb/s via it's PCI-E gen 2 bus, and a BIOS endowed with all the great features of my MSI 880GM-E41 an 970A-G43 motherboards (except for the 970A's UEFI), including non-finicky support for a wide variety of memory brands, core-unlocking, comprehensive control of memory timings, "Memory-Z" for viewing your memory's default JEDEC and XMP timings (including those not show by CPU-Z), and the ability to save up to 6 custom configuration (overclocking) profiles in NVRAM. Note: with MSI's "Memory-Z" feature and comprehensive control over memory timings, you have all you need to manually configure and run under your memory's XMP profile.

Cons: This board does not fare well with "heavy-juicing" CPUs, even though many 125 watt-rated chips are included on its list of supported CPUs. Fact is, even my 3.4 GHz AMD Phenom II X2 B59 (with a TDP of 80 watts) running Prime 95 will cause this motherboard's northbridge and VMRs to get unacceptably hot. Also, despite the robust set of overclocking features found in this motherboard's BIOS, there is an unusually strict constraint placed on configuring the CPU VDD voltage. Specifically, the BIOS either detects (or pulls from a look-up table) the mfg "safe" voltage range for the CPU installed and disallows configuring any voltages higher (or lower). This can present a problem because the CPU voltage you ultimately realize is characteristically lower than the voltage you actually set in the BIOS, because of the voltage droop phenomenon. In particular, my Phenom II X2 B59 is rated for up to 1.425 volts, which for some reason this BIOS allows me to set only 1.4 volts maximum (which is almost okay). But when I save this configuration and reboot back into the BIOS, I find (in the BIOS Hardware monitor) that the CPU voltage actually being applied is only 1.368 volts. This not only makes for some instability under Prime 95 and but also makes overclocking of this very overclockable CPU impossible! Moreover, this same Phenom II X2 B59 readily unlocks to a 3.4 GHz quad-core @ 1.4 volts on each of my MSI 880GM-E41, MSI 970A-G43, BIOSTAR TA970, and GIGABYTE 880GM-USB3L motherboards. However, it fails to unlock on this motherboard unless I first clock it down to 3 GHz or less. This is clearly because of insufficient CPU voltage and the inability to set it any higher than 1.4 volts, to compensate for voltage droop.

Other Thoughts: Despite its above noted limitations, I find this motherboard to be an excellent low-budget choice for low-power Athlon II, Phenom II, and FX processors. I currently have a 3.2 GHz (65 watt TDP) Athlon II X2 260, upclocked to 3.4 GHz @ 1.368 volts (albeit set for 1.4 volts in the BIOS), running very stably on this board under Windows 7 Pro. Also, its hybrid USB 3.0 and ASMEDIA SATA III ports, via PCI-E gen 2 I/O, achieve transfer speeds only slightly (~16 %) less than the native USB 3.0 and SATA III ports on my MSI and BIOSTAR AM3+ motherboards.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 760G Budget Board

Pros: Among many other choices, I found this board to be the best suited for a budget build at a cheap price ($54.99 at the time of purchase). The board has Sata III, which many other 760G boards do not, and 7.1 Audio. This board also has USB 3.0 which is great and all these features are amazing for a sub $60 board.

Cons: This is more of regard to AMD chipsets, but the 760G chipset has no PCI-E gen 3.

Other Thoughts: For less than $60 this is the best bang for the buck for an AMD board meant for legacy processors (I run mine with an Athlon 2 x4 640).

4 out of 5 eggsGood MOBO

Pros: Good size for mini ATX case. All solid state capacitors.

Cons: I have done many builds. I got this in a combo package with a small SSD and a 1T hard drive. So I want C: drive to be drive DISK0 in SATA port 1. As soon as I connected the hard drive it would shift the SSD to DISK1 and the data disk became DISK0. It didn't make any different which port it was in even tho the BIOS said it was in SATA1. Maybe it is the SSD. I will try a different manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: It is a pretty good MOBO. The Windows experience indexed rated the graphics a 4.5, so I put in a GTX 750 video card which kills most of the other slots. The manufacturers know that will happen, why won't they allow for it?

I loaded Windows 7 pro - so I didn't have the issues with Windows 8.1. Everything installed and then 294 MS updates ( a service pack would be nice). I don't do gaming or over-clocking but it seems pretty robust.

4 out of 5 eggsGood little board, BUT!

Pros: Good little board, does what i need to. Perfect combo for what i needed

Cons: It may have been just me, or idk what. But this board was defective and used when i bought it. I ordered a brand new one. I tried a good 15 times to load windows 7 onto it and it just wouldnt give. So i went into cmd to rewrite some of the bios and settings to force install windows onto it.

Other Thoughts: Good board, pretty quick, great with my 1600 speed 4gb ddr3 ram and 3.5ghz 6 core amd processor.
