5 out of 5 eggsNot bad at a;;

Pros: Runs smooth and not hard to work on. You have to flash the cmos before it will work but that is all...has a big sticker on the dimm slots saying this so if you follow instructions on this little part it'll work like a charm. Getting 5.1 for the price isnt to shabby either.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was worried getting a pc chips, but IVe worked on client's pcs thathave had a pc chip board for over 3 years and they still run like champions. Using this for gaming and can't tell the diff fr my MSI board with NForce4 chipset. Id get this if you dont wanna go broke but wanna build a decent low-mid cost computer.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Value Board

Pros: Good basic board for my spare PC. Runs the processor at default values without any problems. This board is a budget board and does the job.

Cons: Poor Overclocking functionality. It lacks on the features but what do yo expect for such a value board.

5 out of 5 eggsgrab it while you can

Pros: good replacement when your old one burns up and you don't have a lot of money to put into a new set up. Easy to install, just what i needed.

Cons: This type of motherboard is not going to be made for much longer so get it while you can.

Other Thoughts: just what the doc ordered

3 out of 5 eggsThis board has issues

Pros: Price and performance.

Cons: Wouldn't recognize my hard drive.

Other Thoughts: I had some of the same issues as others. First the boot screen would just freeze when it was trying to detect the hard drive. I discovered if I went into the IDE settings and changed the PIO from auto detect to the manual setting of 4 ,(You may have to use a lower setting depending on your hard drive),it would now detect the hard drive and would boot normal.Other than that the board works fine.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Solid motherboard for a bargain cost. Arrived on time (thanks Newegg), worked, and cost less than a tank of gasoline.

Cons: No onboard video (I know... "who would use onboard video?" well, this isnt my primary system I built here...)

Other Thoughts: Remember to change the CMOS jumper setting! It tells you to do it with a sticker thats on the RAM slots, but dont forget or you won't power up!

5 out of 5 eggsIncredilble, absolutely incredible!!!

Pros: Do any of you have any idea just how inexpensive this thing is? It works, it's solid. Did I mention how dirt cheap it is? It has overclocking options, though I haven't tried them yet.

Cons: It's way, way, way too cheap to even think about complaining.

Other Thoughts: Why does one stick of RAM cost four times the price of a motherboard? Whatever the reason, I'm pleased with this board.

4 out of 5 eggsGood board

Pros: Bought this board to replace a 5 year old gigabyte board that finally died. I needed an AGP slot because I had recently replaced a video card and did not want to incur additional expense of getting an PCIE card. Previous comments about having the jumper setting on "CMOS clear" are not relevant. Board has warning about changing jumper and manual explains setting made to preserve battery life. So READ directions before installing

Cons: None to speak of. I am not sure if this is now the norm, but changing out drives causes a bios prompt even if no action is required.

Other Thoughts: I carried over an idea from mechanical work - mark all wires before you remove them from your original board. Keeping track of what is what is easier that way on reassembly

1 out of 5 eggsBuying this is a gamble

Pros: Dirt cheap

Cons: Didnt recognize my hard drives, would lock when booting into safe mode on mup.sys. Had to use and IDE card to be able to even boot into Windows, which it then recognized as a SCSI card and possibly corrupted my files. Documentation is poor and the CD seemed bad (from what I was able to see). The layout of the board was so bad that I could only use one of the two memory slots due to the size of the heat sink which may have been the problem (even though the manual said either slot was fine.)
