2 out of 5 eggsless than staisfactory

Pros: plenty of space for upgrades, very easy setup

Cons: sound card gave out on me, and soon afterwards so did the entire board. wouldnt even post in the end.

Other Thoughts: i would have liked to see this board work for a very long time, but unfortunately it wsant meant to be. it was ideal for the system i built. instead, i have now gone with the ASUS M2N

2 out of 5 eggsNope.

Pros: It looks like a great board...cheap and no frills.

Cons: nForce 4 has issues with x-fi. Mine was like DOA kind of...but not really because everything lit up and the hard drive started spinning and the optical drive started spinning when i turned the power on. Sent it back for an Asus m2n-sli deluxe

Other Thoughts: My 3rd build, and I will *never* go cheap on a motherboard *ever* again *ever*.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat OC board

Pros: Terrific overclocking options. Reference clock from 200 to 400 in 1 MHz increments, can change HT, DDR, CPU voltage, plenty of memory timing and HT multiplier settings, supports 4 SATA drives for the future and 4 PATA drives in case you have some old drives laying around.

Cons: No legacy ports, although this is not a big deal since, even if you have some old peripheral that needs a serial port, you can buy a USB to serial adapter very cheaply.

Other Thoughts: Good enough to overclock my Brisbane 3600+ (stock 1.9 GHz) to 2.76 GHz.

4 out of 5 eggsGood board overall

Pros: This board is smooth fast and stable.

Cons: Attempted to update bios and board drivers with those dowloaded from abit website. Afterward the board wouldn't boot. I figured out that the sw supplied for the board on the abit website is not compatible after finally resorting to the supplied cd and everything was fine.

Other Thoughts: Don't use the updates on the abit website or you may end up with a non-responsive board. Boots up windows quickly and stable for days on end through various usage scenarios.

4 out of 5 eggsFollow up

Pros: Had it for about 6 months, works like a champ. No conflicts running IDE and SATA 3G Hard Drives

Cons: See "Other thoughts".

Other Thoughts: sort of a no briner, but when running two(2) 1GB DDR2 800 dimms , don't forget to increase voltage in BIOS (to 1.90 volts if using Patriot RAM)

5 out of 5 eggsBest non-SLI AMD board out there

Pros: Features of the 570 chipset speak for themselves. The cooling of the unit is dramatically better than most competing boards, at the expense of a parallel port (like who uses that anyway?). I have built two systems with this board and am ordering a third. Runs very well in my current config (x2 5600 CPU, XFX 8800GTX vid, 2GB Crucial XMS, 750 watt Thermaltake PSU, SATA RAID 5 with 3 500GB drives)

Cons: bought it when the price was much higher...

Other Thoughts: If you are looking at an aftermarket heatsink, the Arctic Freezer deal for $30 is really ideal (PWM fan, orients the exhaust to the heat sink on the mobo), but be super careful installing it, because it is so tight that you can break off the AM2 mounting bracket "hooks" - I did that when I swapped CPUs.

4 out of 5 eggsNice board

Pros: 4 DIMMs, 3 PCI slots, ability to hook up 4 PATA drives. Board is layed out very nicely although if you have a rather long vid card, it might interfere with your SATA slots.

Cons: Lame con, but the I/O plate really sucks, even more than most mobos plates.

Other Thoughts: This is a good board for those transitioning their systems as you can use your legacy PCI stuff and hook up your old PATA HDDs. Not exceptional robust, but it gets the job done.

5 out of 5 eggssolid and pretty mobo, good value

Pros: I included this in my new rig since I used abit in my previous rig several years back and that computer has been rock solid. the construction is very solid and the architecture very pretty. good choice of mobos if you like to run open casket or have a seethru case. :) everything was very simple to hook up, plug and play and off you go. didn't have any confusion. integrated ethernet is convenient. integrated audio actually sounds pretty darn good to my ears, all things considered. everything was very easy to get going.

Cons: the nvidia network manager filewall deal that comes with this mobo is questionable. I was curious at the start, so I did, in fact, install the firewall software. I could have avoided a lot of frustration if I just passed. Most anything I downloaded, especially in the form of self extracting archives for larger files, just didn't work. the file would report being corrupt when I ran it, or it just would crash, or any number of other reasons for not working. I speculated bad memory and a number of other things. Even though I turned the firewall completely off earlier in my troubleshooting process, I eventually decided to try completely uninstalling it. what do you know -- that fixed EVERYTHING. that little rascal of a firewall was wreaking havoc even though it wasn't turned on. save yourself some trouble, you don't want to install this firewall, just leave it alone!

Other Thoughts: don't install the included nvidia firewall! get a real one!

2 out of 5 eggsWould not read video card!

Pros: The board was easy to hook up and the configuration was nice.

Cons: When I put a video card that was compatible with the system in it did not recognize it. I had the video card checked and that was fine. I think the board didnt have enough power going to the pci express slot, or something was wrong.
