It works well

Pros: AM2 motherboards are said to be picky about memory; This one works fine with my ASUS M2N-E. I even achieve the 4-4-4-12 timing with only 1.9V rock solid.

Cons: They ain't cheap...Had to think long and hard about this one but it was worth it.

This thing moves. The performance for te money is amazing

Pros: This thing has taken everything I've thrown at it and comes out smilin'. For the money you can't help but be impressed with the performance.

Cons: The included heatsink is disappointing.

This is a good motherboard

Pros: Excellent performance for the Money, silent (duh), better than average sound quality.

Cons: The Chipset runs hot 40+C with ambient temp being around 28C (It still works like a charm). Biggest complaints is: not enough USB headers included, come on ASUS at least two more ports would be nice.

Overall Review: No matter how I set the bios CPU Voltage to 1.35 (AM2 3800) I cannot get the voltage below 1.43. I haven't overclocked this thing yet, but if the board is already boosting the voltage I am figuring I might as well.

So far so excellent

Comments: I've had this notebook for a month now and it works like a charm. The diplay is perfect compromise between mobility and size for me and the display is excellent. The only con is the harddrive space. I'd recommend a larger hardrive. I see my self buying an external one in the very near future.
