This review is from: ASRock A785GXH/128M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Box states that it has AOD and ACC support; including unlocking cores on sempron 140m phenom 2 550be, phenom 2 x3 710/720 be, unlocks the L3 cache onthe phenom 2 805/810.
8pin power connector
140w CPU support
update bios without entering dos or windows
instant boot - boot 10 times faster(claims)
Overclock DNA - share your OC settings profile...?
Cons: The computer im upgrading is currently locked in my brothers house and i don't have a key:(
not all the caps are solid
Other Thoughts: I've got a processor to test overclocking on, its a 1.8ghz athlon 64. On an ASUS M4A78L-M, i was able to hit 2.7ghz. Lets see how this compares:)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's a TB, was reliable. Can be fixed with a hammer
Cons: Cant withstand a fall from 2ft verywell. But it is a HDD.
Other Thoughts: Friend gave it to me after dropping his external with it in it. Would disconnect randomly(attached directly via sata at this point) speeds no faster than 150KBs... Hit it with a hammer and it works fine now lol.
friend broke pins off the connector so he could try it with esata - so no possible RMA..hammer is my friend lol
Seemed like the arm in it was all screwy, figured it was going in the trash. Ran WD diagnostic tools on it, tried spin right, hitachie diagnostic tools, acronis, nothing worked.
Tapped each side with a hammer. - works great again.

This review is from: ASUS M4A785-M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Nice layout, plent of sataports, supports an old am2 athlon 3200+ (orleans core) just fine. This processor is not listed on the website at all.
ACC is avaliable to unlock other cores for those of you into that ;)
Cons: The memory i used will not post in dual channel and must have 1 stick in the first blue slot, the other in the first black.
It's older stuff but is supported in the manual. Kingston 667mhz 512mb cas 5 1.8v sticks.
The manual did not have post codes listed anywhere in it. but did state to use blue slots. i took an egg off for the memory issues.
No dvi to vga adapters for it, physicaly not possible. This is nothing new for onboard dvi, so no dual VGA monitor support.
Other Thoughts: Building a machine for friend with old parts and new board. showed him how stable the gpu was.. pushed to 750mhz no problems :)
60GB maxtor IDE, CD Rom drive IDE, 2x 512mb Kingston 667mhz, Athlon 3200+ 2ghz, Zalman CNPS 7500, a crummy 300w PSU
Friend plans on upgradding to a phenom 550 and to unlock cores:-D
