4 out of 5 eggsMOre bells and whistles than I know what to do with

Pros: Maybe it's just been awile since I bought a new motherboard but I was very impressed with the documentation that came with this board. It has alot of functionality that I never would have even thought about. Everything ran smooth with installation. Not a speck of over heating issues. I have two case fans and the stock intel CPU fan and that's it.

Cons: I would have had the wrong processor if I hadn't read the reviews thoroughly. Thank you everyone who writes reviews! I had to do some playing with the CDROM and DVD player to get them to be seen in the bios. QAlso, this requires EATX power supply, which I didn't know about.

Other Thoughts: I couldn't be happier, especially for the price! Again thank you to the other reviewers. I would have been so upset if I'd gotten the wrong CPU. It does mention it in the documentation, but you only know that if you read every sentence in that thing and, of course, you've probably already ordered a CPU by then.

4 out of 5 eggsFanfreakingtastic with a catch

Pros: great features, low cost, ready to rock with its socks off out of the box

Cons: not alot of well defined cpu support and good luck getting a response from asus
Freaking hot northbridge heatsink that may leak heat to cpu. you may want to consider a aftermarket northbridge cooler

Other Thoughts: do your reserch on which cpu your going to use when you go about building this beast so you dont get stuck with a useless board

You CAN boil water on the northbridge Cooler(212F) so be careful

4 out of 5 eggsGreat board, if you know the facts

Pros: SLI, easy configuration and set up.

Cons: Poor information about which processors this board will run. Don't be afraid of this board, just know what ram to use and what processors it will run. I purchased two an 8xx series and 9xx series and niether worked in dual core mode, I later found out that this board only supports the 15x cores and by chance both processors I purchased were 14x cores. I have seen this board run a 9xx series in dual core mode, though Asus says they are not supported.

Other Thoughts: Great board for the money. As far as heat concerns, I ran it a short while with SLI and stock h/s fan combinations with no overheating. Make sure you have goo airflow and there shouldn't be any problems.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Intel Board

Pros: Good price. Manual was very helpful in resolving issues.

Cons: Cooling is troublesome. I had numerous heat crashes when I first started using it, usually it would happen after WinXP was doing some really heavy crunching. Also, the NOS system led to ridiculous levels of instability in my system. I eventually had to force all of the options in the BIOS to the lowest amount of variance possible. Also found that the default core voltage set on the cpu was too low, which also led to instability. This may be a proc issue. I'm not sure, including it here as fair warning to potential buyers.

Other Thoughts: It is a very good board, once you get past the initial troubleshooting. When I get money and time to do more work on it, I am adding a liquid coolant system, I would recommend that anyone buying this board goes ahead and includes that in their order. Currently, I'm running the CPU fan included with the Pentium D currently installed, as well as case fans mounted everywhere possible. This deals with most of the heat concerns, though it still reaches 45C under heavy load. Make sure your case has decent air flow.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard but it had many problems

Pros: Great Price to start
Has many features

Cons: No support for core 2 duo processors but I don't have one anyways so it doesn't really apply to me.
Northbridge cooler is a joke, it does nothing to cool anything. Same with the southbridge. I swear this chipsets hit over 200 degrees. The first thing I did was install a northbridge cooler and a chipset fan over the southbridge.

Raid is troublesome to setup. Windows would crash after XP installs. I just forgot about raid and lived with my 2 drives as seperate partitions.

Other Thoughts: For the money I spent on improving this, I should've just went to the deluxe version with heatpipes.

I put this motherboard in a mid sized atx case and I run 5 hard drives in it. Beware you might need a bigger case if you decide to go with a larger video card. I barely got mine to fit with the power connectors forced against the back of my hard drives

Newegg was great with the price and delivery

4 out of 5 eggsGenerally a good motherboard

Fast once it's setup properly. Pentium D 805 & 945 worked well for me in dual core mode after flashing bios to latest. FAST RAID! Issues with raid in cons... SLI Works well on this board and is easy enough to setup. Good overclocking features, just don't use the auto.. The North Bridge will cook you breakfast in the morning... Literally.. Runs hotter then the Pentium D 805 overclocked to 3.5GHz which is very SCARY! Even with ArcticSilver 5... I had the ASUS logo on my finger for a 3 days after touching it! And that wasnt when the system was on a heavy load...

Cons: This board has the biggest problem with memory I have never encountered! If I didnt use Kingston/Corsair/Patriot/OCZ it would refuse to post period, like most DDR2 boards it only provides 1.8v on initial boot so I had to put in a cheap 256MB stick and set the voltage to 2.1v (OCZ Specs) after I was able to boot and all was well.
BEWARE OF CHEAP NORTH BRIDGE AND SOUTH BRIDGE PINS! The plastic pins are so cheap that 3 out of the 5 boards had no heatsink on the bridges... atleast 1 out of the 2 pins were broken on the 3 boards. THE END USER SHOULD NOT HAVE TO FIX THIS ASUS!
RAID-0 was a pain to setup! If auto auto settings werent used then windows would lockup during installation... But once it was set to Auto it worked just fine!

Other Thoughts: Overall the board is fast and Hotter running then my 3.5GHz Pentium D 805.... Definetly one of the best intel boards(AND HOTTEST!) in this price range for SLI next to the gigabyte. I will be using this board in the future but ASUS really needs to step up in quality and be the company they use to be...

As usual Newegg did a great job, and as usual UPS busted every box they sent.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money

Pros: Looks good on paper - none actually found.

Cons: On my third REPLACEMENT, and ASUS wants me to send it back to them AGAIN. Posted once... for about 10 seconds and then never got anything from it ever again. 6th computer built - never had a problem like this before.

Other Thoughts: As the subject states, don't waste your money on this board. Absolutely terrible.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat MoBo for the Buck

Pros: Features, BIOS Profiles, Sweet manual OC settings to whatever you (and your experience/knowhow) can handle, plenty of room for upgrades

Cons: This board runs HOT i repeat HOT! After the first test run and winblows+Ubuntu install, shutdown and rearranged the case. Southbridge heatsink is minimal as far as performance. Slap a 60mm fan right next to that bia to keep it chilly.
Northbridge Heatsink-despite looking really flashy- wont do too much to cool the chip. Its wide and not tall..hardly any room within it for air to pass through, and there is not too much room around it after you install the PCIe slot 1 video card. Upgrade to a Therma*ite HR 05 and save it before you burn it. Learn from other's mistakes.

Other Thoughts: Get rid of potential problems before they become liabilities. Once the new heatsinks are in place you will notice ROOM temperture go up! I got this to run like a charm with a p4 HT 3.0 at 3.45, 533 1G Dual Channel RAM somewhere around 570. Small increments and OC at your own risk. It says so in the manual. Warranty is void after OC.

3 out of 5 eggsok

Pros: Very good board if you are trying to get away from the Micro ATX's without spending alot.

Cons: Look out if you have an Intel Pentium D 820, I have heard that they do not work in this board, but mine seems to.

Other Thoughts: Somtimes it does not cold boot from hard drive, no biggie.
