5 out of 5 eggsA33G memory limit problem

Pros: Have three of them for 5 years. Very good and fast with 6000+ x2 AMD.

One of the board after 5 years can not run with the IDE, the audio and the lan but I had PCI cards and USB sound device so the computer is still very fast and reliable.

Cons: The specification sheet says that it should support up to 16 Gb but they only tested 4Gb.

My three A33G work with 0.5 gb, 1gb, 1gb+0.5gb, 1+2 memory ram. But when I put a single or two 4Gb 800Mhz ram I get blue screen. My configuration is Windows 7 x64.

So in my opinion this board support only up to 2x2Gb 800Mhz of memory.

Maybe you can try slower memory and then the 2x4Gb could work, I don't know.

So I purchase 8Gb and had to return it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent budget board

Pros: I've been reading other reviews and I guess I've just been lucky with motherboards. This worked perfectly right out of the box. I have used two previous ECS boards, the K7S5A and the 755-A2, both also with SIS chipsets, and all have been excellent performers. While the OC settings are limited, this board took an AMD LE-1600 from 2.2 to 2.7GHz without blinking an eye. For routine business apps without needing RAID, and even for music & video processing, it's more than adequate. And with a fast processor, it's plenty fast. 2 PATA, LPT + COM ports.

Cons: None, considering its limitations, which I would think one would be aware of before buying. Only a dolt would buy this and expect the built-in graphics to be appropriate for serious gaming. Of course, solitaire and freecell work just fine. :)

Other Thoughts: I set this up for my father-in-law, so pretty basic setup. 250W PS (incidentally even though it has a 24 pin slot, it will work with the older 20 pin power supplies). 2x500mb Kingston DDR2 800, 80Gb HD, CDRW.

4 out of 5 eggsHeat sink retention issue resolved

Pros: Bought this mobo for a budget build as an open box item and paired it with 2 gigs of A-Data ddr2 800 dual channel and dual core Athlon 64 x2 4400 2.3 Ghz CPU. It went to P.O.S.T. and passed R.A.M. test on the very first power up. This is a micro A.T.X. mobo, so don't expect anything spectacular with it.

Cons: Heat sink retention bracket is a joke! P.C. chips should know better than to put a get up like that on a mobo, especially when it would possibly burn up a potentially expensive proprocessor and hardware! Fortunately, I have been building computers for a long time, so this was not an issue for me, but could be for the novice builder.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the Amco heatsink retention bracket with one that has 3 prongs per side instead of one and a back plate and screws. I would also recommend replacing the north bridge heatsink with a quality heatsink and fan, but there is the issue of having only one sys. fan connector on the mobo. I got around this by powering it directly off of my P.S. and B.I.O.S. is rather limited, so this is not a gaming motherboard, but it does what I bought it to do for me.

2 out of 5 eggsSame Problem as Breaks

Pros: Low Price. Great Newegg shipping

Cons: You get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I've built systems with about 5 of these boards and never had a major problem. I built a unit with this board and sold it to a customer, and 2 weeks later, she calls me and says that the audio is going into an endless knocking sound loop. I thought it might be the AMD C & Q, so I shut it off, and that seemed to fix the problem, but a couple of days later, she calls me back with the same problem. I opened the case to RMA the board, and when I went to remove the CPU, the heatsink came off in my hand. I then saw that the plastic tab on the heatsink mount that the heatsink retainer attaches to had broken off. I always check to make sure the heatsink is secure after I attach it to the board, and it was on there solid when I built it. Never seen anything like it, but now that I see someone else had the exact same problem with this board, I feel much better since I couldn't figure out how the darn thing broke all on its own. Naturally, Newegg was quick to send a replacement.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Cheap motherboard

Pros: Very good price, very upgradeable, good support for newer devices

Cons: onboard video sucks, dont try to run vista with just that. if you go with say a dual core, buy a northbridge cooler with a fan. with out one it overheats quite quickly

Other Thoughts: onboard video is always horrible, go with at the very least an nVidia 8400gs

1 out of 5 eggsBreaks

Pros: Cheap, and was a micro, although I didn't need a micro

Cons: Ok, for me there was only one flaw, but it was big one. First let me tell I never move my case it stays in a venilated area and it does fine. One day I turn on my computer and the screen stay black. Im thinking what the heck. I check my connections and they are fine. I open up the case, and to my surprise, the latches that held on the processor fan had broke. The fan had fallen and crushed my graphics card. So there I was, the processor had burned out, the motherboard was shot, and I was out a graphics card. What a piece of @#$%.
