2 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your time

Pros: Worked well for a couple months.

Cons: Started getting major usb port problems. Thought it was my printer went out and bought another one but it was the board. Also would get occasional problems with it detecting my hard drives. During some boots it would just stall and not detect my harddrive but had it listed in bios. All in All this board has nothing but problems just take a look at the ABIT forums and you will see for yourself. Don't waste your time or money go with an ASUS. I bought one and with all the same hardware it runs great. Never going back to ABIT.

Other Thoughts: Also ABIT's rebate is a ripoff. I mailed in my rebate and never received it when i called the company they instructed me they never received it i faxed a copy of it over and they never replied when i called them the instructed me the rebate offer was no longer valid. Also had the same rebate problem with XFX they ripped me off and never sent me my check.

2 out of 5 eggsAbit KN9S

Pros: Good Layout

Cons: Have had consistent problems with this board 1 month after install. Major USB Problems at first i thought it was my printer but when i had a new printer sent out and installed that one it still didn't work. Bought a different board and voila no problems. This board also has stability issues. I've decided to stay away from Abit.

Other Thoughts: Stay away it will save you the headache go with an ASUS.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and cheap

Pros: Cheap. Reliable. And it's got the basic feature set down: PCIx16, DDR2 800, etc.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought this board almost a year ago for just ten dollars more... At the time I was building a cheap gaming rig, and went to this one after a cheaper EPoX board wouldn't POST. Since then it's been smooth sailing -- it's the backbone of a sturdy PC I've used for both gaming and SW development. Can't complain!

5 out of 5 eggsDecent Board

Pros: Decent OCer. Heatpipe. No problems. Good price and probably better than most in this price.

Cons: VDimm only up to 2.3V :(
Not so bad. Most boards in this price range don't even go to 2.2

Other Thoughts: Took an 3600x2 to 2.4 easily. I know it can do more but that was the target. I resell and this wasn't for me.

The Bios is the usual basic stuff needed to OC. Again the only con was that VDimm only went to 2.3 and that limits certain memory, D(, from really shinning.

2 out of 5 eggswas nice when it worked

Pros: The motherboard was stable for wile the BIOS is nice and clear to understand, also the built in sound card worked nice.

Cons: Would not boot up, even when i flashed the BIOS it would boot up but some files would not work or it would power down after i boot up.

Other Thoughts: I think just get more money and go buy a better motherboard that you will not have problems with.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This bored is extremely great, i never had to flash the bios, though i probably should, since i hear it does fix problems. However, all the people who are bashing this motherboard, learn to build computers i guess? or update the bios, whichever way makes you happy with this thing, because there's nothing wrong with this motherboard aside from a bad first bios

Cons: I do however have 2 USB ports that do not work, but i have so many USB ports on this computer anyways it doesn't bother me much

Other Thoughts: Great price for an excellent motherboard!

2 out of 5 eggsAbit Fails Again

Pros: Lots of features for the money.

Cons: This is the second Abit motherboard I've had fail after a few months. Bios updates fixed many issues, board finally failed trying to boot. Just kept powering on and off again and again.

Other Thoughts: Will NEVER buy Abit again. Will stick with Intel (for intel) and either ASUS or Gigabyte for AMD.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT board!

Pros: nice placement of PCI-E, good chipset passive cooling, drivers are stable from nVidia, its just a great board i cant see why anyone could give it less than 5 eggs

Cons: i think the layout of things is almost perfect for my mid-tower case, wish it had just ONE more PCI slot and IDE port instead of the PCI-e x1 ports (just added a PCI IDE controller)

Other Thoughts: the way this board is, you cant go wrong. it could be better, but for what it is it's almost perfect and deserves no less than a 5/5. are there really any PCI-e x1 devices yet that manufacturers need to include 3 of them on here?

5 out of 5 eggsAnother perfect ABIT board!

Pros: Excellent and pleasing to navigate full featured bios.highly stable and responsive in the hands of a compitent builder.

Cons: newbie builders posing as hardware enthusiasts bashing this board in thier reviews because of what is clearly user errors.but then again that probably drove the boards price down making it a steal for someone compitent enough to use it,so maybe thats more of a pro than a con eh?

Other Thoughts: board gave no arguements towards a 65w 1.25v am2 x2 even with out of box bios(which is 1.3 btw).i have to say it makes me sick to read of people that would rather rma a motherboard and call it broke rather than at the most flashing the bios or setting the correct voltage for the ddr2 memory. if your ddr2 is default outside of 1.8v you need to set it to the correct value because no board will do it for you unless the board defaults at an incorrect jedec voltage value.because the truth is, this board is just awesome, and i even left my x-fi out of this build because i tried the onboard HD audio with the latest hd audio driver from realteks site, and was strangely impressed by it so i kept it.so if your looking for a non sli nforce5 for your 8800 and your am2 try this one out, itll give back more than you put into it for sure.
