Pros: (mentioned before)
Cons: (none found yet-)
Overall Review: Ram speed- is 400mhz (DDRII 800). Sorry for the confusion wanted to update this! The 770 chipset does in Fact support DDRII 1066 but not this exact board. (maybe later bios revision or oclocks that high though!) IF you need 1066 look at Abit, Asus and gigabyte 770 boards. It is a true am2+ board however which means HT3 and Dual Dynamic Power Management - separate voltage planes for the CPU cores and the Integrated Memory Controller.
No reviews yet? Nice features on board!
Pros: 15 watt mobo (vs 45watts on new nforce chipsets)....no fan needed for that reason. Lower noise with no fan failure. Its biostar- and its Tforce (this means it overclocks -those that dont know) Left asus for these guys few upgrades ago and so far its been much better. Supports Phenom- Fully. Unlinke some other boards that dont have HT3 or the faster ram support, watch out for these boards. Or youll have a Phenom with alot of features diabled. Will write better review when it gets here.
Cons: None (havent recieved it yet)
Overall Review: If your a overclocker and watch the watts, want future cpu support this is the board to be looking at!
Why are you waiting- get this cpu!
Pros: Not paying for a Heatsink and fan I DONT want (guys those stock fans are about 10 of the cost in a box set).....get just what you want a Overclockers cpu, unlocked multi, low watts and if you use a watt calculator this cpu uses LESS power (and makes less heat) then amd's 3ghz cpu when clocked same! Talking 25 watts less or so.
Cons: Um, it didnt jump in the case with the new mobo by itself. MUST I DO EVERYTHING! haha.
Overall Review: Compaired benches for 2 nights. Compaired to the Intellllls I payed half as much for just about = speed. I mean it just loses when clocked to 3ghz (not worth $100 more for other guys).
