4 out of 5 eggsGood deal

Pros: Front-panel connectors are labeled pretty well on the board. Cheap and so far is reliable. POSTs much quicker than what is was replacing. Manual is decent. For the price you can't go wrong for a basic system.

Cons: Doesn't seem to like single-sided DIMMs. Gave me blue screen of death at end of windows install first time. Had to disable onboard devices and then it installed fine. Northbridge heatsink could be better. I/O panel is a little flimsy and lan port is a little off with it.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to disable onboard devices in the BIOS before installing XP and don't forget to set the CMOS jumper to the normal setting before booting up.

1 out of 5 eggsSecond Misfire

Pros: It had all features I needed.

Cons: This is my second PC Chips board. The frist would not install Windows XP, The second is D.O.A. No video, no POST codes.

Other Thoughts: Newegg has been really helpful, all things considered. The RMA process was fast as well.

4 out of 5 eggsStable

Pros: Replace a dead motherboard and it does what I ask it to do

Cons: Nothing to report

Other Thoughts: Lacks certain features because of its pricepoint but not a con because it isn't a server class board. In this case getting what you've paid for isn't a bad thing.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Worth the Price

Pros: Worked out of box and cheap.

Cons: Only has 266MHz bus speed. You need a much older & slower processor to work with this.

Other Thoughts: Don't trust PCCHIPS's website, this board doesn't support a Sempron processor, even with BIOS upgrades. Skip this board, pay $5 dollars more and get one with a bus speed of 333 or 400 MHz.

4 out of 5 eggscan't complain

Pros: Great documentation for first timers like myself. Everything worked first time no doa here thankfully. IMO worth every penny and then some.

Cons: System will not reboot for some reason. Everything else is peachy though. It's most likely something I did or didn't do.

Other Thoughts: Ordered Monday, got it wednesday, one day ahead of schedule. No small feat considering it went from California to Northern Maine. An overall great experience at newegg. I'll be back.

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Buy Cheap.....Weep
Spend more money and get a quality board. In my opinion if you buy this one you will regret it.

Other Thoughts: RMA'd first one DOA...Second one unstable with Athlon XP 2100+ and 512MB of Kingston DDR 2100 and Win XP2. NO FLOPPY recognized... seems to be a repetitive problem...(other reviewers below).. I am at the point where I am going to cut my losses and quit.
