1 out of 5 eggsCPU fan not getting enough power

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: The CPU fan header is not supplying enough power to the CPU fan, such that it barely spins, and is easy to stop. If I plug the fan into a different fan header, it powers up just fine.

Other Thoughts: Discontinued, so likely need to get a new MB. :(

4 out of 5 eggsGood deal

Pros: Has IDE for older hardware. Installed easily and booted on the first try. AM3 socket. Comes with a heat sink fan with a thermal pad on it so if your new to building PC's it makes things a little easier.

Cons: No core unlock support. Doesn't handle an overclock well.

Other Thoughts: The motherboard is one of the smallest I've ever seen, but it does go in without a problem. Board came with a Sempron 130 C3 so the second core could be unlocked if you upgrade to a better motherboard with core unlock support in the future. Don't expect to have a blazing fast PC with the Sempron 130 but it is adequate for my son. Keep in mind that this board can only handle up to a 65W processor so that limits a CPU upgrade. It seems to be one of the few boards left with IDE connections if your upgrading from an older setup and saved me from having to buy new hard drives and DVD burners. I installed 8 GB of DDR3 1066 mainly because ram is just so cheap but has never used over 3.2 GB so 4Gb should be more than plenty.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Bargain

Pros: Booted Up fine
Easy to use bios
Easy to install
cheap

Cons: Wont show bios if videocard is inserted and was freaking out the first time i tried to boot

Other Thoughts: This is part of my first build and is better than what i expected. Although it's the bottom of the line AM3 processor onboard it still performs above expectations.

5 out of 5 eggsNice inexpensive repair option

Pros: This made an easy repair on a 3-yr old E-Machines box that I support at our church. The AMD CPU and on-board graphics were sufficiently similar for XP to come up running, and I just had to update a few drivers. I had to get some DDR3 as well, but maybe I can make use of the old DDR sticks.

Cons: Requires 24-pin (or 20+4) power connector, so I had to replace the P/S.

Other Thoughts: I hope the caps on this don't swell and burst like those on the old stock MSI board.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for a cheap re-build

Pros: Inexpensive, with 2 gig of ddr3 RAM, and a few small parts, total cost in new parts was $105 to rebuild an old Compaq.
Originally I was looking at buying 2 gig of ddr ram for $50, to max out the old MoBo, but for $55 more, this seemed like a much better option.

Cons: The board did nothing at first only the fans powered up....
Upon further investigation I found that the CMOS jumper was missing. I nicked one from the old MoBo, and it started up just fine.

I can't seem to find the settings in bios to boot from a USB thumbdrive, I'm starting to believe it is not an option.

Other Thoughts: The rest of the build:
drive0 = 80 gig IDE HDD with Ubuntu 10.04 32bit
drive1 = 160 gig laptop SATA HDD with Windows 7 pro 32 bit
SATA cd\dvd Asus burner

So far xbmc , and other programs run fine with the onboard graphics in both OS's on a small vga lcd monitor.
For a true HTPC a graphics card would be needed.
Very happy overall, hence 5 eggs

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a Bargain!!!

Pros: Combo package for $60 with heatsink - and free shipping - can't be beat. Granted, the Sempron 130 is bottom of the barrel for AM3, however, the BIOS does have some decent overclocking options available to help with that.

Boots up fast, onboard LAN seems zippy, CPU runs cool.

Cons: Absolutely none. This is a decent setup for Mom and Pop to cruise the internet, check e-mail, and play solitaire.

The HS fan is a little loud on stock settings, but I tweaked it in the BIOS and got it to quiet down.

Other Thoughts: The motherboard is a Biostar N68S3B, with nVidia chipset/graphics and VIA HD audio. The AMD Sempron 130 is C2 stepping and only has 512KB L2 cache.

Likes to run DDR3 1333 memory at 1066, although you can override it. I just didn't feel right doing so.

4 out of 5 eggsbudget build

Pros: not bad for the price, bought this as a budget build for my mom and girlfriend and it works for their needs, total build was just around 200 shipped,

Cons: budget build, really only good for surfing the internet, but can be an ok base for a first build, igpu is awful, this board doesnt fit my needs at all, but works for my mom

Other Thoughts: does not like oc' ing at all but it could've just been the two that i got, not terribly concerned about it but just a point for those wanting to push a little extra power out of a budget board like this
