Pros: Bought this for my Home Network works great I have 2 Netgear 16 port switches and a patch panel inside with a linksys small business firewall all inside great product and quality built
Cons: doesn't come with all the screws if you want to fill it up but enough for me
Overall Review: Highly recommend it for anybody needing it for home or business networking,
Cons: DOA This board was also sticky on the back just like what the other user stated. I wonder if it's the same board?????? Looks like I'm going to go with a different board. Should have read reviews on this before purchasing.
Overall Review: Go with something else. First MSI board that I've bought that has been DOA.
Pros: This board is rock solid from the beginning. I've been able to overclock my qx9650 that I won at a lan party up to 4.05 ghz stable on water. I've been with Asus since nForce 4 days and I've loved every Asus board I've owned. Dispite what people are saying about this board and ram issues don't listen to them this board is rock solid and I will reconmend this board to any overclocker, and also like always Newegg rocks.
Cons: For those people having problems with northbridge leaking. Mine did the same thing to me which was very frustrating but its an easy fix. If you look at the tubes that come with the board they have very thin walls on them and that is why they are leaking. All you need todo is go down to your local hardware store or online and buy some tubing with thicker walls on them and that is what I did and there were no leaks after that and it's still running great today.
