Made for Phenom 9600
Pros: ive only had i week and only had 1 day to tinker with.got it and installed vista without a hitch.i have Phenom 9600 black edition and overclocked using cpu multiplier to 2.6 ghz. with ati 4850 got 11600 bench on 3dmark06.played crysis on high settings no lag.everything was working too good to be true.when i get back home from over th road trucking im going to play more with bios and get it up to 2.9 ghz.the board has pretty blue led lights on each slot and light up when you put in vid card ect.also has 4 leds that on boot up blink red and green in code and then all 4 green if no errors.manual explains codes.also has power and reset buttons on board.pretty cool features.got all 5.9 scores on vista ratings.
Cons: none yet but time will tell
Overall Review: i believe for a quad core set up i got the best bang for the buck.for $550.00 i got 4 gigs ram Phenom 9600,ati 4850 and this motherboard from new egg on preferred account no pay six months.am i dreaming lol
Pros: Was fast untll she died
Cons: Ran good with some artifacting for over 2 moths then died while watching Net Fliks..computer shut down and wouldnt power up at all.tried it in my other computer same thing.put in my old 5850 and computer started right up.msi plz advise on warrenty return process .
