5 out of 5 eggs Nice Stable Boaed 07/02/2011

This review is from: MSI 880G-E45 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

Firstly, To the Gentleman below that stated he is not running stable with 4x2Gb of RAM, I would test the RAM. I'm running 4x2Gb of A-DATA Gaming Memory with NO PAGE FILE Flawlessly with Vista Ultimate 64 Bit & PCLinuxOS 32 Bit. Yes, you read it right. I have windows & pclinuxos on separate HDD's. I've been running this Board for 9 weeks and doing a lot of tinkering in the BIOS. It has accepted every change without a Hicup. The BIOS is very user friendly except for figuring out how to set the RAM timings. I resolved that issue by going to the MSI Forum and finding the solution. If you're looking for a ATX HTPC Board that still allows you to use IDE Optical Drives, this is a Great Value: (See "Other Thought's" Below.

Cons:

Some might say: It's SATA II. My response is: Google, Sata II vs, Sata III. Virtually No diference. A Mechanical Drive can only Spin so fast. Also, No USB3. If needed down the road, purchase a Add-On Card.

Other Thoughts:

I don't know why newegg is so high priced for this board. I purchased it elsewhere and saved 40% including a rebate. That said, I now own two MSI Motherboards and MSI has become my supplier of choice for Motherboards. Their Service is unequaled. I did have to RMA a 785GT E-63. The same day they received it, they sent out the replacement Board. You May or May Not Know, A$$$ & G$$$$$$$ Hold you up while they try to repair the faulty Board. I'm not into trying to repair a Mobo. I had a terrible experience with A$$$ going down that road. With MSI they don't require you to call and talk to someone who has less technical knowledge than you do. LOL. You can initiate an RMA online and get a RMA # in less than 24 hours if you fully explain the problem and what you all did to try to solve said problem. The system worked Great for me. Same process worked as it should with the Rebate. I had my rebate in 7 weeks.
