Pros:

I bought this board when my previous ASRock board went belly-up during a firmware upgrade. It's hybrid DDR2 DDR3 ability makes it an excellent choice for those on limited budgets who need to upgrade components one at a time, which is exactly what I did.

Updating the firmware using the Instant Flash in the BIOS worked flawlessly. v1.40 -> v1.60

Cons:

The 7.1 surround sound does NOT work in any version of Ubuntu. Stereo output only. Mic Jack works.

Adaptec 29160N SCSI card does NOT work with this board. The board refuses to POST 99% of the time. The 1% works great, but this configuration is NOT reliable. I disabled serial ports, parallel ports, removed other cards and drives... nothing worked. I read that the AMI BIOS could be the culprit but even after updating the firmware to v1.60 the result was the same.

Other Thoughts:

A SCSI card must work for my home business to run. Tape Drives are used for archiving data and HD's aren't as cheap to run as tape. Using an older Adaptec 2940UW has been acceptable, but the 29160 is a much faster card. The card not working correctly in this board is disappointing to say the least.
