5 out of 5 eggsHmph! Still works!

Pros: That this is STILL working, in the machine I built for a friend, is Pro enough. I bought this originally for a Auto shop - The RAM I had ordered with it, was bad, so I originally gave it a bad review. I had the board sitting about my house after it had "failed" - I rebuilt it into a new machine using new ram. 2 GB of Kingston. After that, I solf the whole thing for a low price to someone else, and it has been working to this day.

Cons: Never was a problem with the memory on the board, one of the sticks was bad from the start, replaced and now all good.

Other Thoughts: Biostar made some very durable MoBos back in the Mid-2000's - It is odd, to look back at the 2000's as a previous decade - Seems like yesterday when I originally ordered this. I wish I could still get this board, I have dozens of uses for them.

3 out of 5 eggsbuy if you want a mobo for 3 months

Pros: the mobo ran well for 3 months, no problems, no hiccups, very consistent.

Cons: usb ports all began to glitch and short out, was lucky if i had any usb ports at all. The video card in it (fx 5200) was good for the first two months which after began to fail and give me blue screens. Replacing the mobo as I write this. Avoid this mobo for it's purely trash, spend more money on something more reliable.

Other Thoughts: buy gigabyte or asus

3 out of 5 eggsGreat board w/ a few driver issues

Pros: Not a bad board for the price has overclocking features in the Bios.

Cons: The sound driver hangs the computer even though the Windows XP Pro install was fresh.

Other Thoughts: Still haven't visited their web site to check for sound driver updates. So that may solve the problem.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Board

Pros: I needed a DDR board to re-build my son's P-4 (Prescott) . I added 2 gigs HyperX RAM, Samsung SATA DVD, WD 160 gig SATA HDD, Audigy Soundcard, 550 Antec PSU and it's handling it all beautifully, so far. Sure, it's no power house, but it sure breathed life back into this old system. On SATA, it can only handle 1.5(SATA I), instead of the normal 3.0 gigs per sec(SATA II), but I jumpered the HDD to run 1.5 and I can't complain.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: I've read all the negative reviews on this board and it seems clear that 99% of them are user error, not the fault of the board. If I ever have to re-build another DDR, Intel machine (PRESCOTT) I will use this board again...if it's still around!!

4 out of 5 eggsIt Worked

Pros: Worked, OC'ed p4 northwood 3.06 to 3.4 without much work, no heat issues. Replaced old P2-400/Intel SE440 mobo, it was about time.

Cons: Took way too much effort to get this board working. Had to change PS (didn't boot with first 300 watt PS but works with 250 watt unit), SCSI controler- LSI 21320 would give error message during XP install, Adaptec 29160 works, AC97 audio driver would not load, reinstalled XP and second time around driver loaded. Had 2 P4-3.06 chips, 1 Barton XP3200 and 1 Athlon 64 3000+ lying around, plus 1GB PC3200 ram, Nvidia Quadro 900XL, 2 73GB cheetah's 15Ks, 2 Fujitsu 147GB 10Ks, Hitachi 250GB SATA, WD 640GB SATA, 2-NEC, 1-Sony DVD-RW drives, two ATX cases w/ PS. With all the spare parts I had on hand it was a pain to get this MB to first boot then install XP.

Other Thoughts: Should have gone with the Athlon 64 3000+ update, latest generation of the 3 CPUs that I had on hand, more up to date and better compatibility.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Mother board for older systems

Pros: this board installed easy and gave no problem booting up. no hitches just leave it stock. I had to use a 2.4 ghz processor a 3.2 pinless does not work.

Cons: This board does not work with all intel D processors, i called and had a intell D 3.2 processor which bio sd would work with the board, it does not. the processor i have is pinless, i had to use a older 2.4 with pins on the bottom.

Other Thoughts: great board no problems

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad; good legacy mobo

Pros: Worked right out of the box; easy to set up. Good price and decent features for an older PC. If you're trying to keep an older PC going for a while longer, this is a good choice.

Cons: Only 2 Ram slots; if you're rebuilding an older PC and previously used 4 DDRs, take this into consideration. Internal USB ports (to connect to front USB ports) a little tight; if you use a double-width graphics card, it might be tough to connect.

Other Thoughts: Board is tiny. That's good for smaller PCs. I'm using a larger case, so some of my cabling is a little more stretched than I'd like.

4 out of 5 eggsBest board available here for my needs

Pros: Socket 478 and DDR boards are getting hard to find - this one suited my needs just fine. Assembly was easy (with a magnifying glass to read the board). Seems to perform well enough, though it's no speed - burner. The BIOS is a good version and seems rock solid and adaptable.

Cons: The manual was vague, necessitating reading the board with a magnifying glass and the resultant headache.

Other Thoughts: Wish 478 DDR boards were more available still - there are alot of perfectly fine Prescott chips still out in the world and DDR, too - but if wishin' was fishin'. I'd be watchin' a bobber dance right about now.
