4 out of 5 eggsQuite a nice motherboard

Pros: -Built-in WIFI (That hasn't been overtly fussy as of yet, which for me, is rare)
-BIOS offers a relatively wide range of options for overclocking and troubleshooting.
-450+fsb*1 operation (This particular board I'm using anyway)
-Overall stability had been excellent*3
-Second HDD controller (Jmicron) is useful in certain scenarios
-Didn't die after the warranty was up (Timer must have been faulty, lol)

Cons: -Yukon/marvell ethernet can cause a rather annoying, hourly, 1 minute freeze under Win7*2, (Didn't start till 3 years after purchase for me) until one updates this particular device's firmware or disables it in the BIOS (Thank the flying spaghetti monster you can).
-There's been a bit of a problem with Intel's HDD controller drivers where certain versions of it will do/make an astronomically stupid decision to install laptop hdd (2.5") oriented drivers... this has a good potential to totally destroy ones sanity finding out why your system is crashing all the time, especially if one happens to be less absorbed and/or have less experience in the whole DIY mentality sometimes required for enthusiast-class (So-called) parts.
-Actual ASUS support has been wanting. As of this date, there still isn't a BIOS update for the Marvell/Yukon problem, this is a very easy fix on ASUS's part, yet, nothing indicating a fix is on their site.

Other Thoughts: *1 - The 450FSB *claim* hasn't been tested out on a continuous basis, I had OC'd it to this frequency initially, and performed a stability test using Prime95 (The case was open with a very large fan pointing at it, also, I used an aftermarket cooler and it was a rather cold winter here in Nova Scotia). I allowed it to run for 3 days, as a burn-in of sorts. My system has however, been running at 333fsb for the last 3+ years (Purchased the board as soon as it was available locally) with very little fanfare inasmuch as problems/errors go.

*2 - Haven't tested to see if it happens under other O/S's. Apparently, it does though.

*3 - One random crash, (No, log file either) upon the next boot, the motherboard (And O/S, win7) detected only 2 cores of the 4 that were actually there. After a hard BIOS settings reset (Removed battery, cleared CMOS) Everything was happy with rainbows. I'll chalk this up to a cosmic neutrino hitting the north-bridge/CMOS settings or somesuch..

5 out of 5 eggs100% Stable

Pros: Very stable, performance is great. $20.00 MIR makes this a really good value. One of the fastest P35 boards if not the fastest. Would purchase again.

Cons: None that research won't fix. People should read the Asus forums prior to purchasing to be informed.

Other Thoughts: Using this with Q6600, Zalman 9500 AT, Mushkin XP 8500 (2x2), PC Power & Cooling 750 watt, BFG 8800 GTS 512mb, Seagate 500gb w/32mb cache, Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 4 months into owning this board along with the E8400 CPU. Built a system for my son last December with the same board and a 2.6 GHz CPU and Corsair XMS PC 800 Ram. Initially saved some money by ordering 2 1GB Crucial's Ballistix PC 800 memory sticks. Started having BSOD's about a month later. RMA'd the memory after both sticks failed a memtest+ check. Newegg was great by accepting them back for a full refund even though it had been slightly more than 30 days. Not even a hiccup after installing 2 1 GB sticks of Corsair XMS PC 1066 sticks. This is my third ASUS build in the last 5 years... and not my last! Besides my own mistake of buying non Corsair memory... I've had no issues at all with either board. Oh... my board came with bios version 0906 (12/10/07) and recognized the 1066 memory without needing an update! Kudos ASUS and and as always... Multiple Kudos to Newegg.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: This is not a cheap board... don't skimp on the memory or power supply you but in it. Also... don't be lazy like I was. I should have run memtest+ overnight after my initial assembly and not later when things really started to heat up.

4 out of 5 eggsShipped with bad BIOS??

Pros: Love the board, plenty of options, runs great once you update the BIOS. I have this installed in my Vista Media Center / Home Theater setup.

Cons: I was surprised that ASUS shipped this board with a bad BIOS. The original shipping BIOS would hang during post. There is an option inside the shipping BIOS that allows for BIOS upgrade. I downloaded the latest BIOS from ASUS, added it to a floppy disk (via USB Floppy drive). The BIOS upgrade menu recognized the USB floppy as drive B, located the new BIOS and upgraded without any issues.

Other Thoughts: Great board after BIOS upgrade. Works flawlessly with Vista Media Center. I'm giving it 4 stars due to the faulty BIOS and annoying immediate need to upgrade the BIOS. Some end user documentation related to BIOS would have been nice.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board, Purchased 2

Pros: Runs like a dream, purchased 2 as open box @130.00 each a few months ago. Both rigs wee basically the same except 1 has a X3210/8800GTX and the other E8400/8800GT. Beside some minor setup issues, They both work flawlessly especially with up to date bios and a little research from others whom previously built systems with them. O/C madness with a wide variety of different HDD/Ram combinations. I have alot of current hardware around so I experimented a bit. I am dual booting WinXP and Windows Sevrver 2008 STD.

Cons: 8800GTX is large but just fit by a mm. I have had absolutely no problems not of my doing such as experimenting with settings in the New bios 0612. The raid/southbridge issue some had I avoided by researching it prior to installation of hardware and OS. Some driver issues with 2008 Server but the vista drivers usually work, More software issues due to being a server os tam motherboard iddues.

Other Thoughts: X3210 Quad@3.6ghz/AC Freezer Pro
P5K Premium/4x1Gb GSkill F2-6400CL5-1GBNQ
EVGA 8800GTX 768mb
2x36Gb WD Raptors Raid0/WD 80gb sata

2 out of 5 eggsHorrible Customer Service

Pros: Good Motherboard once you update it to the latest BIOS.Wouldn't post but I decided to update the BIOS before I sent it back and now it works fine lots Overclocking options.

Cons: Horrible customer service the lady from the estore where I was transfered to was actually arguing with me over a missing I/O shield she said I had to buy it and refused to send me one.The supervisor of the estore even accused me of lying!!.She stuck to her "policy" but lost a customer over a 3.00 part way to go ASUS

Other Thoughts: I am just shocked at the horrible treatment I got never have a problem with there tech service but there estore is a nightmare.I would rather buy the part from e bay than give them another dime It's a shame.I would have given the board a 4 but with the customer service or lack there of I have to give it a 2

Pros: This board is great. Haven't owned an ASUS board in a long time and decided to buy one. I am waiting on an extreme quad, but this board has breathed new life into my e6300(1.86). I have it at 2.65GHz at 1.41v. FSB is at 1524MHz. OCZ ram 1GBx2 ddr21066 OCd to 1137MHz at 2.15v. Memtest no errors. CPU idles at 37c, 44c after 1 hout of prime95. And the best part is I haven't noticed any system hangs!!

Vista Ultimate 64

Cons: Ati crossfire only
No SLI
Don't game much on cpu anyway

Other Thoughts: Can't wait to get qx6850 unlocked to see what this board can really do!

4 out of 5 eggsNice mobo

Pros: This is my first box I ever built...had to call buddies to install windows..haha.
THAT BEING SAID, I had no issues setting up a H/D to run my o/s and 2-500gb H/D's running RAID 1. Board runs cool. Running 4gb 6400 mem with XP Pro x32. No issues besides the comment in the 'Cons'.

Cons: I installed 2 SATA DVD burners. BIOS sees then but on startup it says no drives installed. Also, I cannot boot from them since they are not found. Had to put in an IDE drive to boot from. ASUS said if I am running RAID....then It will not see the SATA DVD drives. Said I would have to change the setting in the BIOS to IDE...then I lose RAID...thats not good.
