A simple and inexpensive motherboard for the enthusiast or the first time builder, the Asus M2NBP-VM is a great starting point for anyone wanting to build or upgrade their system. Designed for the small form factor, this motherboard will fit into most small desktop systems. Equipped with an AMD socket AM2, suitable for Athlon 64 and Sempron processors, including the X2 and FX series, it's more than capable of handling anything you can throw into it.

Using the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 210S chipset with integrated graphics in conjunction with up to 8GB of DDR2 memory, the M2NBP-VM is perfect for those that don’t need a discrete graphics card, and also it features DVI-I and VGA/D-sub ports. Intelligent overclocking lets you choose a specific percentage based on memory and system requirements.

It also includes a gigabit Ethernet port, onboard 5.1 channel sound, and 4 SATA ports. With those 4 ports, the M2NBP-VM permits adding multiple hard drives to the system, managed by RAID 0, and 1. This versatile card has multiple expansion slots, including one x16, and one x1 PCIe slots, plus an additional two PCI slots. To build a powerful system, start with the Asus M2NBP-VM.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked fine until it died

Cons: Board died on my after a year, right after warranty was up.

Other Thoughts: I have mixed feeling about this one, it worked flawlessly for a year, and then died. Simply would not boot up.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Lots of supported CPUs, up to Athlon 6400. Runs my 6000 stable under any load for almost a year now. Supports lots of RAM which I use in virtual machines.

Cons: The Raid config is unstable, or at least in my 64bit Vista system, even with updated bios it won't work right and crashes. The on board video is awfull, and not ment for other games than chess and solitare.

Other Thoughts: Great board for price. Im running amd6000 with 8G of ram, Vista 64bit, and not a hickup since I bought it.
(except for RAID)

2 out of 5 eggsAfter one year...

Pros: A terrific matx board with all the goodies you need (except firewire) - even supports AMD cool n quiet technology.

Cons: After using it fairly heavily for just under one year, the board began issuing an error indicating a failure in the BIOS video ROM, rendering it impossible to boot. Tried flashing new BIOS - but it was still a no-go.

Other Thoughts: I wound up replacing the M2NBP-VM mobo with an Asus M3A78-EM...which BTW moves the SATA ports out of the way of my 9.5" long eVGA 9800 GT card (another CON with the M2NBP-VM). So far, this is running very smoothly. Added plus for the M3A78-EM: Support for PCI-E 2.0!

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good board till it crashed...

Cons: Board crashed after about 7 months... Although ASUS was really cool about accepting to fix it, I had to buy a new mobo and HD because of the 30 day wait... (then used in another comp)

Other Thoughts: Overall its a good board and I would buy again.

4 out of 5 eggsHD sound use will freeze system

Pros: This is a nice mid to low end board with adequate built in graphics, and the usual I&O connections for basic users.

Cons: The onboard (integrated) sound card is HD sound, BUT it will frequently (once or twice a week on average for me) lock-up my computer requiring a restart using the reset switch (or turning off the computer) which is not well liked by my OS and programs which may lose some of your data or information that was not saved at the time of the lock-up.

Other Thoughts: I guess I might havfe to buy a sound card from NewEgg!!

1 out of 5 eggsFried on me-Four Times!

Pros: Inexpensive. Fits in smaller cases.

Cons: First board shipped with a non-functioning IDE connector. Not a big deal. Then it fried after two weeks' use. Sent it back to ASUS for repairs. Fried again. Got a free replacement. Fried AGAIN. Another replacement, fried when I tested it with just my CPU and a stick of RAM (no overclocking involved on any of these occasions. And my cooling solution was moving tons of air). Can't get my money back, moved on.

Other Thoughts: It's possible that I just had four really bad flukes in a row, but I think it's unlikely. I will not be buying from ASUS again.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Been running flawlessly in a "lunchbox" uATX case for about 9 months, X2 4400+, 2 gigs Corsair PC6400 RAM. Easy install and setup, sweet little machine. Plenty of fan headers and USB ports.

Cons: BIOS needed update, their web site could be easier to navigate. And Firewire would've been a welcome feature.

4 out of 5 eggsStandard user

Pros: Addendum: No issues to date.

Cons: The southbridge does run hot, no heatsink. Many MB chipsets do.

Other Thoughts: I recommend a heatsink or a fan that blows directly on the chipset. I used a fan and lowered the temp by approx 15 deg. Rule of thumb for chips is lower temp by 12 deg and double the life span. Northbridge has a heatsink but I've angled my fan that blows on the southbridge chipset to blow across the northbridge heatsink. The southbridge controls the drives and the USB. Heat = Death

3 out of 5 eggsGood board but......

Pros: Very flexible with 2 PATA ports (4 devices) and 4 SATA ports. Ran OK on first power up. The 8 USB ports are a real plus. Reasonable priced. Cool & Quiet works very well with AMD BE-2400 low power CPU

Cons: Setting the boot drive is not intuitive when changing from PATA to SATA, and requires some fiddling. USB ports died just after 4 months. Asus RMA department is very slow getting authorization out.
USB ports on replacement board died in 10 days. Waiting for another RMA.

Other Thoughts: Built quite a few computers with Asus boards over the years as well as other brands. Purchased this one for the flexibility of using old hard drives and DVD drive. Well satisfied except for the USB failures. Perhaps they just got a bad batch of chips. Reading ALL the reviews on many motherboards, it's obvious that every Mfg. has some failures. Having worked in engineering R&D, I can tell you that is to be expected. Zero failure rate products would be priced out of the market. Asus could do a little better handling the failures. Would have been 5 star if ASUS was on the ball. Can't fault Newegg. They are always on the ball.

4 out of 5 eggsGood board

Pros: Two PATA and four SATA, up to 8 GB RAM, good on-board graphics and sound. Easy to setup even w/o manual (bought mine out of box).

Cons: Needed BIOS and Chipset update

Other Thoughts: ASUS website has the updated drivers - have them on hand before installing.
