3 out of 5 eggsDFI ICFX3200-TR/G

Pros: The BIOS options, The PCB coloring, yellow UV highlights (could do without the orange though). Tweakability.

Cons: Oye, where to begin... The first and most major issue was recognizing my HDD, this was not even trying to put them in raid. Once I did finally luck out and it loaded to show HDD vista would not load unto it, would copy all files then hang. I then tried to BIOS update and suddenly the dam thing booted up and i went into BIOS, then saved and it rebooted; it would not go past that. So i became very upset and tried to flash an earlier BIOS; after that the system would not post. After a weekend of tweaking and fiddling i pulled the board, it never did load Vista, it did load XP at 1 point, but if it is going to be this much trouble I don't want to deal with it.

Other Thoughts: I really wanted to like this Board. Xbit uses this board to test almost all their ATI/AMD video products, so after having troubles with 3870x2 + 3850&3870 in three way on a P35 board I said this is the one. Well It was one colossal waste of time. Not to mention while pulling the board out and switching back to p5k board, at least its reliable with one card, some artic silver smeared on the pins of cpu,(my fault though became complacent) then on socket of p5k, now - more money for a new CPU and Mobo.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Board

Pros: I liked the overall layout of the motherboard, designed for dual-slot video cards; the area around the CPU is largely clear; and the SATA/FDD ports are upright so they don't get blocked by the video card. The sound drivers are pretty decent, big improvement over my old board with SoundMax. Setup went flawlessly. I must have gotten the golden egg with these motherboards, so to speak, because my north bridge isn't running as insanely hot as others have reported. It's about 50c with the heat minator I got for free with a combo deal. Still gonna slap an MCX159 on it, though.

Cons: There were some problems with the layout, however. The front panel 1394 connector sits right under the first video card slot, so you have to connect that before you install your video card. My front panel sound cords weren't long enough to reach the sound module, so I don't have the front panel audio ports. Also, when I boot into Windows, it searches for drivers for the audio controller, even though it's installed, which is sort of annoying.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's a decent motherboard for the price. I'm not overclocking anything with this board, so that may be why my north bridge temps are relatively low. Also, the memory slots, PCI/PCIe slots, and SATA ports are all made out of UV-reactive material, so the board looks kind of cool in my case.

2 out of 5 eggsNot made by amd

Pros: Below

Cons: Below

Other Thoughts: For kwolfs review... This mobo was out before amd purchased ati.. They have not produced any boards for intel since.. all the new boards that are revised by amd are low watt, cool and working all the bugs ati had with their boards... check out the 790fx chipset.. soon to have sb700 and sb750 which will fix more problems..

3 out of 5 eggsDFI did their best at polishing a t*rd chipset

Pros: -DFI has added tons of features
-Dual gigabit ethernet
-8 SATA II ports, 4 are RAID5 capable via Promise controller
-3 PCI-E full length slots
-Elevated audio module
-BIOS has TONS of options

Cons: -Miserable memory speed (ATI's fault)
-8GB RAM only shows 7.5GB in BIOS, no workaround (probably ATI's fault)
-Promise controller delivers lackluster performance due to being PCI and not PCI-E
-Full length slots either run x16 for one, x0 for another, and x2 for last slot; or x8 for first two and x2 for last. Not a good crossfire mobo for this reason.
-BIOS will not load with my Logitech G15 connected
-Chipset overheats even with Heat Minator, 60c Idle!!

Other Thoughts: DFI has done their best at polishing the t*rd that is the ATi Crossfire Xpress 3200 Chipset. I really home AMD/ATi continues making Intel chipsets, but actually starts making them good. The memory controller performance in this board is horrible and not gaming grade at all. Before I put the heat minator on, the northbridge ran at 75c idle with no overclock. I put that bad boy on WITH a fan, and it lowered it to 60c... or still 10c hotter than my cpu idle. Overclocking memory on this board is impossible. BIOS has tons of options for this but the chipset is heat and hardware limited. It's like someone offering you infinite amounts of the best tasting candy, but the wrappers are all glued on so it's useless. You get tons and tons of options but the lame ATi chipset hardware ruins it. DFI has done their best and my hats are off to them for this engineering marvel. Also, price is definitely right.

2 out of 5 eggsJUNK

Pros: ITS PRETTY,LOOKS GOOD IN CASE!

Cons: EVERYTHING!

Other Thoughts: This is a total waste of time and money,it does not perform very well at all,I created a rma for it but on second thought Im not going to waste my money shipping it back to Newegg,it has many bugs in it has a very overkill bios,it does,nt make any sense at all? The overclocking is a joke it says it in the bios but not in windows,so in reality you dont change a thing ,and if you go one notch over you have to crack your case open and do a cmos reset! So please stay away from this piece of junk at all costs!
P.S. My memory performance rating dropped from 5.9 to 4.7 under Vista when I changed to this board"

2 out of 5 eggsHorrorible mess

Pros: attractive deal: RAID set-up, Socket 775, 8 Gigs of ram but...

Cons: Everything else. Raid drivers wont work thus hard drives are unstable, wont boot with more than 1.5 gigs of ram, waste of money im regretting every second of this board.

Other Thoughts: if you're thinking about this as i was recently than you might as well order some ephedrine, caffeine, and Advil cause you'll be up all night trying to get it to work with a huge headache

4 out of 5 eggsSolid board after Bios update

Pros: Loads of features. Great for over clocking. Great price and an ATI Chipset with an intel cpu! Vista Ultimate 64 bit works well after bios update. Installed with 4 GB Ram with no issues! Got the larger Northbridge heatsink free with purchase! ATI South bridge too!

Cons: Some of the endless features are not explained in the manual. Professional level bios setup, so know what you are doing or get someone who does!(not really a con) Needs a bios update

Other Thoughts: Overall a great motherboard for the price. Good for novices if they don't want to mess with bios, but better for the over cloackers. Q6600 @ 3.4GHz, ATI Radeon 8750 512 MB Will be adding another for Crossfire. 500 GB WD HD. Runs fast and cool in the Antec 900 case! Will update after 6 months!
