4 out of 5 eggsWindows 7 Audio Problem

Pros: Cheap, integrated components

Cons: Audio is a bit, weird

Other Thoughts: I had a hard time getting audio to work under Win 7. There is a setting in the VIA utility for the sound. In advanced options, I had to deselect "When plug in Headphone, mute Speaker". After that, sound no problem.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great AMD Board, easy set-up Fast & stable with an Athlon X4 processor

Cons: Onboard Sound is pure Junk, The front panel Audio works somewhat, the rear speaker port was DOA, I will say that the Jack is defective because I can't feel the wire click engagement. I am disappointed with MSI Quality. Still searching for Quality Board to support AMD Processors. ECS boards in the past have always preformed flawlessly, just not long term. Thought I would give ECS another try, since they have gone to Solid state Caps, I guess it didn't pay off, will try an add-on sound card to see how long the M-Board will last.

Other Thoughts: At least it was cheep, I don't expensive lessons

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about your sound issues. Can you test your rear connection with the front panel audio diconnected from the motherboard? If so, your front panel may be AC'97 while the motherboard header is HD. Please contact us and we can work with you in finding a solution.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Product installed easily and performs as expected

Cons: filed for a rebate. The rebate was why I purchased this product. Been way over 2 months and not a word on the rebate or status.

Other Thoughts: Often a rebate is an exercise in futility. At least half the time I never ever hear from the manufacturer about the rebate. Trying to contact a manufacturer is almost impossible

1 out of 5 eggsMaM

Pros: None it does not work at all DOD.

Cons: I just had time to build my son his new computer and sold his old one but this borad did not even start up. Very sad, I just wish I did not sell his old board. Should have try it first. My fault. I change everything once but board is dead

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about the issues you are experiencing with your motherboard. Prior to shipping from our factory, all motherboards are tested to ensure that they are working properly. A DOA issue can be caused by any of the main components, including CPU, memory, power supply and motherboard. If possible we would recommend testing the motherboard in the following fashion.

Remove the motherboard from the case, with only CPU, CPU fan, memory and power supply connected. Place on a flat non static surface. Reseat the CPU. Test with only one memory at a time and reseat memory. Ensure that both the 24 pin and 4 pin (ATX12V) connections are connected from the power supply. Connect the power button from the case or short the power pins (6 and 8) to power on the system. If still have any issues or questions, please contact us and we can work with you to find a solution.

3 out of 5 eggsgot it

Pros: Well. The board is still working okay, and there have been no new issues.

Cons: It stlill has a problem reading the memory correctly, but it's no big deal. I could set it manually, but it's working fine for what I need it for.

Other Thoughts: The reason for this addendum to my previous review is to infiorm you readers that I did finally get my rebate. It took a while, but it keeps my perfect record on rebates intact.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The board is okay for the price with the rebate.

Cons: Over 8 weeks and counting....no rebate....No rebate....No rebate. Price was a factor in buying this board. Without the rebate it's not a good investment. For the same money (without the rebate), there are better boards available.

Other Thoughts: If they stick me it will be the first time I've gotten stuck on a rebate. It will also be the last time I buy from ECS.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Budget board

Pros: -good price with rebate, only $35,
-overall decent board, I ended up with a Black/grey/white board, much better looking then the clown colored board.
-6 3.0Gbps Sata ports
-Radeon HD 4250, can handle hd 1080p without issue
-IDE channels, Let me use an older IDE Hard drive or DVD-ROM
-Gigabit Lan,
-Ran Windows 7 without issue, Ubuntu ran into a issue with the graphics, but a restart fixed that (i have no idea what was wrong).
-Serial Port, not many boards have them, so if you have legacy equipment this is a great plus.
-Overclocking is a plus, but it is very limited to preset units.

Cons: -Only 2 memory slots, 8 GB sticks cost alot still, so using the low cost 4 GB stick to fill that 16 GB ram limit is not possible,
-only 4 onboard USB 2.0, no usb 3.0 but it is a budget board.
-NO HDMI, pretty much the only thing that stops this board from being a great HTPC.
-no underclocking of the cpu, -1 egg

Other Thoughts: -I purchased this board to make a NAS/FileServer with ZPool raid originally, I did not notice the fact that it only had room for 2 ram boards though (my fault) I only saw that it accepted 16 GB of ram, (Zpool raid needs about 1 GB of ram per 1TB it can work with less but there will be lag), It ran ok with 8GB but not as fast as I would like, so i played around with it, Windows 7 installed without a problem, no driver issues with SP1, Ubuntu had a graphics issue that fixed itself on a reboot, I ended up installing Ubuntu Server 12.04, and setting up a fileserver with mdadm raid.
I think that this would make a perfect budget board for any use, the only real issue I had is the lack of underclocking in the old school bois, overclocking is ok, but no underclocking so i took an egg off for that, in a file server that does very little I have no need for all that extra CPU power.
Final Unit
-AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8GHz Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core ( a power hunger cpu, will must likely replace with a green CPU later)
-8 GB of DDR3 ram 1066 (2x4GB)
-3ware LSI 9500S-8 8 port Sata Raid card in PCI port
-WD 2.5" Blue 120 GB sata laptop hard drive running OS.
-16x1.5TB Seagate hard drives in raid 6 gives me about 18.1TB useable space.

To be honest i am not 100% happy with this setup. I will mostly pull it apart and rebuild this complete with a different board, there is nothing really wrong with this MB but it is more suited for general purpose computing is a lower budget rig than a file server. I am thinking of this ASUS C60M1-I AMD Fusion APU C-60 (1.0GHz, dual core) AMD Hudson M1 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo, + 16 port PCI-E Sata Raid card instead. at $80 it seems to be a great buy for a lower power File server and at 25 watts under load should save me 60-75 watts off this current setup or about $105 a year in power bills.
