3 out of 5 eggslong time fan of asus

Pros: I bought this motherboad from another company and I used it for my mom new pc that I built. Its a great board with problems. I like the fact that it is an 775 processor and it does work I was able to pop that in and wham it works. I just finally put vista 32 on it with 2 gigs of ram and its faster then xp!!

Cons: The ethernet and sound card sucks. I disabled both of them and put in pci cards and they work much better and faster. I have an IDE hard drive that is making noise on it so I know its time get another one. It does not like xp for some stupid reason. I loaded Vista on it and its fine.

Other Thoughts: This board actually runs Vista 32 with no problems it read all of the drivers on it. I have to upgrade my video card and sound card but other then thats its nice.
It will probally fly once I put a sata drive on it:)
I would probally get another asus board since I only use Asus anyway

1 out of 5 eggsDefective Motherboard

Pros: Micro-ATX, Quad-core compatible.

Cons: Terrible. ASUS has literally gone down hill. I received this system board and tried three different CPU's and three different types of RAM. The motherboard will not post. This is the LAST time I purchase ASUS.

Other Thoughts: The RMA process is a joke. I purchased an Open Item and, since it does not work, I STILL have to pay a restocking fee and return shipping. I love NewEgg but I am disappointed with their policy towards opened items.

2 out of 5 eggs2 Beeps

Pros: No comment

Cons: Wouldn't pass post. Just 2 beeps. Tried various combinations of RAM modules, all off the ASUS recommended list (OVL). CPU was on the supported list as well.

Other Thoughts: I see this problem listed by a few reviewers. The anti-static bag was open when I got it. I don't deal with ASUS much but I've found most manufacturers put tape on the bag to seal it and to prove whether its been opened.

3 out of 5 eggsAsus Service

Pros: Asus is known for quality. This product despite the fact it is made in China seems to work fine.

Cons: While the web site states that "This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Core™2 processors in LGA775 package." this is not true. After calling tech support to find out how to support the latest E7200 Core 2 Duo Processor everyone at the company stated that this processor is not supported. I asked them to ship me a board that would work as I used their site to influence my buying decision. Asus reps all stated that they do not stand behind their site and I should have dug very deep to find the cpu compatibility chart. I am sorry I believe when a company makes a statement like this, there is no reason to dig deeper.

Other Thoughts: I will make sure if I ever buy an Asus product again I am 150% certain that it will work before trying out anything new. The first time I called tech support in 10 years of buying their products has taught me an important lesson.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great motherboard on the small side but overall very good

Cons: Seems as if the internet is running slow, not a problem of Newegg though, I am sure this is just a minor issue.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget + expansion board

Pros: Good price, expandable

Cons: none for me

Other Thoughts: These are great boards for expansion later on. All the feature's needed to build a solid machine.

3 out of 5 eggsMostly issues on startup

Pros: The ethernet port works great, especially for LAN gaming. Overall, it's a decent product.

Cons: The USB ports don't seem to boot up with the rest of the MB. At least, for some peripherals. It only recognizes my keyboard about half of the time, until I log into Windows.

Sometimes I get a "USB Device Over Current Status Detected!!" message and the system shuts off after a few seconds, even when I didn't have any USB devices plugged in. It seemed to go away after a couple of hours though.

If you connect a graphics card to it, expect to lose one of your PCI slots since it will get in the way. There's only 2 other slots and an Express x1, so you'll only get one other PCI device (I'm using a network card) and something for that x1.

Other Thoughts: It takes a while to warm up, so it's better for people who prefer to leave their computer on all the time (on low power use for the energy people), rather than those who prefer to turn it off every night.

2 out of 5 eggsSensitive

Pros: Not many pro's small and nice foot print as stated...

Cons: First this mobo runs hot and searched info on this puppy at asus website . they said their pc-probe program value limit set at5 40c ... and this mobo runs at bout 54c+- ... so the spec guy at asus said set the pc probe prgram to 60c.. and you'll be fine... /cough! ... anyways some words the mobo hea sensor bit misplaced. umm... but anyway it died on me after 3 days

Other Thoughts: I used to love asus... but this one really zapped my ego.
It's possible I got a bad one... but really things not right over-all. Bought this to run a 800fbs cpu and box on it said 1066fbs mobo... so maybe that is where problem came in but specs showed it culd handle 800fbs... and i did have proper memory 667 standard... oh yeh one more thing... the asus mobo book states must have power supply over 400watts and of the 2.0 standard... so - be careful if you buy this product
