This review is from: Foxconn Rattler LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: PATA support with 1155 CPU processor
Cons: The first time was booted successfully.
Afterwards, always Black Screen only.
I5-2000K (Sandy Bridge)
DDR3-1333 (Corsair XMS3)
NVIDIA 8500GT (ASUS)
I did not use the recent CPU or memories.
But I got black screen always.
Seems that BIOS chip is defective or unstable.
Other Thoughts: I hope FoxConn test the durability of board.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech IDE2SAT25 IDE 40 Pin Female to SATA Adapter
Pros: This makes me use new SATA hard drive in the old IDE-only motherboard. This device is put on motherboard socket. Power should be connect independently with a provided power cable because IDE socket in the mother board does not provide power to this device. This device J-micron chip which supports LINUX OS too. I tried other models, all of which worked on Windows OS only but did not work on LINUX except VANTEC's product. VANTEC product has the same chip as this device, but this device has the different chip configuration. The main usability of this device is in lower height unlike Vantec's product, which has the SATA socket on the top.
Cons: There may exist some reliability issues, which time should tell in the future. But I could not find the major cons at this time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P5Q-EM DO LGA 775 Intel Q45 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: RAID in small Micro-ATX motherboard.
Cons: A Lot Of Cons:
P5Q-EM DO is unstable and unreliable in my opinon. This model is difficult to set up settings in BIOS. CPU fan error is shown all the time. I suppressed this error in BIOS., but it takes 5 seconds to switch between menu items in Hardware Monitor, but I don't know why. Motherboard cannot detect CPU temperature properly (always 0C/32F). Also motherboard temperature is very hot compared to other motherboards. I have used P5Q-VM which is very stable and reliable. I expected that P5Q-EM DO is comparable or better than P5Q-VM (no RAID).
Other Thoughts: I should have believed what the other reviewers have said. I thought that problems do not happen to me. At least I wanted to get the good motherboard. I think that P5Q-EM DO model is not a good product for the end user customers.READ FULL REVIEW
