Most Favorable Review

nice board for the money

ASRock A75 PRO4 FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
ASRock A75 PRO4 FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: ease of installation, well thought out layout for all components

Cons: see below

Overall Review: was impressed by the board from the word go, only had a few gripes with the board. would have loved a header for multi card reader. one or two more internal sata ports would have also been fine. The first 4 sata ports take some getting used to, but would have been nice if they were not at 90degrees to the board. over all a well put together board

Pros: Large internal space, easy to work with

Pros: Keeps my Athalon 6000+ at a chilly 80F at full load

Cons: The only cons I have for this is 1 the led on the fan,but it helps me know my 'puter is on. and the fact that is is freaky huge.

Overall Review: Zalman hit on something good with this cooler. just wish they had one w/o the led

Pros: nice proc had to get it due to being very loyal to AMD

Cons: runs slightly hotter that anticipated, but that is easily rectified by better cooling

Overall Review: Must have first AMD that is non-FX to clear 3ghz.
