Pros: Economical, reasonable performance and once break-in period passed very reliable.
Hard to beat for the price.
Cons: I have dozens of hard drives, and I usually get about 1 out of 20 drives that fail within the first month.
But for the price I cannot complain
Other Thoughts: For the amount of drives I buy it is still cheaper to have a couple of extra drives around, than to buy more expensive drives.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I use a lot of threads with the applications I use. I find the thread switching to be much faster than the Intel CPU's.
The ability to switch threads faster swaps any speed advantage that the Intel CPU's have.
I do not play any games on this computer.
Far superior performance for running virtual machines as well.
Cons: Raw single threaded performance not as good as Intel
Other Thoughts: I do not really play any games, but for compiling, virtual machines, video editing, I really prefer the AMD processors along with AMD chipsets. I find the long term reliability of AMD based motherboards to be superior as well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Seems well built, and performs solidly. I usually purchase Asus but I needed more pci-e x4 slots than were available on Asus motherboards.
I have had no compatibility issues, have installed 2 HP P400 raid controllers, Highpoint raid controller, Creative Xfi sound card, HD7780 Video, Hauppauge Colossus TV Capture.
Cons: Not Nearly Enough PWM Fan Controllers.
I am spoiled by Assus which has Six or more, but 2!, on a low end board I can understand, but on a board designed to be highly expandable Ridiculous.
I much prefer the Asus Overclocking utilities, and BIOS configuration. (Not saying better just my personal preference)
Other Thoughts: Other than the fan and utilities software, this is an excellent board.
It is rock solid
