MSI X48C Platinum LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI X48C Platinum LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: cheap for what it can do, many features, stable, aesthetically pleasing, easy to use and configure.

Cons: cant OC very well, but Im running an older bios. Maybe a flash will help.

Overall Review: ddr2 and 3 available. allowed me to build a cheap yet quick system that's open for upgrading down the road. MSI X48 platinum, Dualcore 3.0 wolfdale, 4gb pc6400, seagate 250gb & 500gb, Xfi fatal1ty, antec tpq-850, visiontec 4850, lian li pc-a05b.

Smoothest install ever

Pros: Very easy install. Dunno how but my old install of windows coming from an msi x48 mobo with a e8400, just dropped in and i dint even need to reinstall it. It just worked. Although I did reinstall Windows after flashing the bios on my ssd. Oc'd an i5 2500k to 4.5 using a $25 cooler, no sweat. Flashed bios in windows, no sweat. Runs around 29k in 3dmark 06 with 4870's crossfired. Really stable too.

Cons: The sata slots werent in the way for my cross fire since I only have 4870s but judging form the size of the new cards that may be an issue.

Overall Review: I've been an MSI user for over 10 yrs. This is their best line up yet.

Pros: silent and moves a lot of air.

Cons: none

Overall Review: my case lay out is upside down compared to most cases, it also has reverse airflow, it pumps air in through the back and out the front, but only on the lower part of the case. Added this slot cooler because there is no air circulating above the vid card.
