1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: The CPU fan works!

Cons: The CPU fan is the ONLY thing that works! Tried a different power supply, memory, etc. until I faced the fact that I was NOT going to build a computer today. RMA time!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Purchased this combo to replace a dead socket-A board/ suspect CPU. Being able to reuse the legacy components from the old system is a real benefit - IDE HDD, 2x512MB DDR modules, and wireless NIC installed without a hitch (previous board was VIA chipset thus no need to reinstall OS, another plus). Combo is fairly inexpensive and fast enough for a second system / basic PC.

Cons: Was unable to install an nVidia 7600GS AGP video card. This card caused the PC to crash (bluescreen with nv4_xxx errors) as soon as any VGA-intensive application was started. Tried numerous drivers, BIOS settings, etc to no avail/ card is incompatible. Installed 5800Ultra AGP card without a problem - I suspect an issue with the PCIe bridge and the KM800 NB chipset, was unable to set AGP4X (option was not available) in BIOS which has proven to overcome certain VIA/nV compatibility issues in the past.
Aging platform offers no upgrade path.

Other Thoughts: This is a decent buy for a mainboard-swap to repair an older system (as I did) as the chipset is compatible with most legacy hardware.
I purchased mine from a local vendor and paid more than Newegg has this listed for

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Makes things very easy to assemble since you don't have to install the CPU/FAN (comes preinstalled)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought two and the builds went very easy. Planning on buying 2 more.

1 out of 5 eggsbuyer beware

Pros: Possible carrying capacity of 4 ATAs and 2 SATAs is a nice concept

Cons: tried 6 different types of RAM an it did not recognize any of them. I was another unfortunate one to get the half of BIOSTAR products that fails.

1 out of 5 eggspiece of poop

Pros: cheap i guess

Cons: doesnt work, i guess i got a defect, while reading online, i found out that biostar puts out alot of defects, and i was lucky enough to get one. It starts, shows the biostar logo, then randomly shuts down.

Other Thoughts: it MIGHT be good if your able to get a working one... cheap price for a decent motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsdecent combo

Pros: cheap!!!booted right up!!!great for a basic machine.

Cons: onboard video is a lil shakey.

Other Thoughts: i bought this just because it was cheap.i know socket 754 is just about extinct but its a good deal for the average pc user!!would be great for a first build since cpu comes preinstalled!!!
