1 out of 5 eggsBeware!!!!

Pros: None. This board is nothing but a cheap and worthless piece of non-functional technology.

Cons: They don't work right out of the box. What else needs to be said.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased two of these boards. Neither one worked. The processors worked fine in other manufacturer's motherboards. Do yourself a favor and stay away.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Cheap Motherboard

Pros: The motherboard has overclocking options in the BIOS so you don't have to mess with any jumpers. They are just what you'd expect out of a cheaper motherboard: simple. But for people newer to overclocking it helps.

A suprise that I got from the onboard audio was that it supports hardware acceleration. This can really help performance-wise playing games.

The motherboard runs very stable and error-free with Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux.

Cons: Well there were several, but they all (to me at least) are worth keeping this motherboard.

On Athlon processors (Not Athlon XP but Athlon) the temperature censors are not read, and instead in the BIOS cpu temperature is shown as "reserved". Although it's less likely people will use such an old processor, good cooling should be used to be careful, and only a modest overclock if the user needs the speed boost.

The CMOS battery was dead when I hooked everything up. This caused the CMOS to become corrupt and make it so I'd have to press the power button repeatedly until the hard drive light stayed on followed by the power light. If you get a BIOS related issue, replace this battery. These motherboards might sit around for a while before anyone buys them, so it's always a good idea.

There is no SATA and only one USB header, but seeing how the only reason most people would buy this motherboard is likely to draw life from old parts, it's not too big a deal.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Basic motherboard but works perfectly. I did have a problem when trying to load XP. It didn’t like the hard drive because it had a previous version of windows XP on it. So I formatted the drive and it loaded with no problems.

Cons: No SATA. No Video. Package had the wrong Drivers CD.
