Pros: Fancy copper heatpipe. No jumpers or card needs to be flipped for the board to run in SLI.
Cons: IDE ports at bottom of board, out of reach of my optical drives. SATA connectors are sideways and harder to connect in a small or crowded case. Only 2 PCI slots and one is unusable if you're running in SLI with big video heatsinks. CMOS reset button on the back panel of the motherboard easy to hit accidentally when removing or connecting USB devices. There is an audio connector placed right behind the primary PCI-E 16x slot that interferes with the seating of one of my graphics cards. Luckily I have two different brands that are shaped slightly differently.
Overall Review: Doesn't run any faster than a P6N board that has a better layout. Get the P6N. Newegg is the best ever!
Better than expected
Pros: Some reviews say that you can't use both inputs at once but you actually can, just not in the Aver software. We use this for a podcast and input HDMI and composite video at the same time and it works great. HDMI is really awesome quality and there aren't any other cards out there at this price that do HDMI in.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: I'd love a card with 2 HDMI inputs but I guess you always have the option of buying another card.
worked like a charm
Pros: *Good Bargain
Cons: *Doesn't feature some higher end features, but its a mid range priced board so you can't expect that
Overall Review: Bought this to replace a well used (3 years?!?) MSI p6n that I originally bought with my Q6600. Worked with no problem and has some more features in BIOS compared to my old board.
Failed after 6 months
Pros: Large capacity for cheap
Cons: Failed after 6 months of operation. Never had a hard drive failure before, maybe I've just been lucky. Failure after 6 months just seems to be worse than just luck, though. More like poor manufacturing.
Overall Review: Luckily I was running this in RAID 1 with a WD Caviar and none of my data was lost.
