Good mobo for the price 9/26/2008 6:55:11 PM

Pros: Decent mobo for the cost. It's been running the E6750 in my GF's PC at 3.4Ghz (425x8) no problem for the last few months.

Cons: Minimal features, hidden OC menu.

great CPU 9/24/2008 6:33:07 PM

Pros: This is a great CPU for gaming. I upgraded the ram on my AMD which didn't help much. Swapping out to a gigbyte mb, this CPU and2GB of 1066 ram made a huge difference. Running in 1650x1050 reolution all settings on high with no hickups. Very pleased with the speed for the price point.

Cons: None

Good on a budget, but not long-lasting for the gamer 9/12/2008 10:53:29 AM

Pros: Good continuing support for CPU and memory (relatively), great upgrade board for someone new to LGA775 or DDR2 standards, great BIOS options for dummy-style overclocking and more advanced options for hardcore OCers, reliable dual-BIOS and nice onboard features.

Cons: Doesn't like my memory (DDR2 1066, reads as 800, have to OC the mem to get it to its working standard), tends to scare me as when changing fsb it will sometimes fully power-off and then restard with new settings a few seconds later, only 2 DDR2 slots, limited FSB support, and it only reads my multiplier clock up to 9 (cpu limited?).

Overall Review: Get a good 2 x 2gb DDR2 1066 if you want this to be a more lasting board (at least until more mainstream 64-bit OSes permeate the market). Make sure you don't get a cpu with a higher FSB and then aren't able to reap the benefits. It might be more preferable for the normal user, whereas the gamer would do better to invest in a solid P45-based motherboard.

Pros: Cheap, which is good considering this was a budget build. Supports newer processors and high bus speeds. It's a pretty basic board but it did what it was supposed to do.

Cons: None really.

Overall Review: I'm not sure if this is common but the shound header is way in the back of the board so the cables barely reached. Maybe short cables are a con for the case. It also only supports up to 4GB RAM. Not really a con since it's in the spec.

thumbs up.... 8/9/2008 1:32:12 PM

Pros: Fired right up with E8400 and no problems smooth and simple install. Good value for the price...

Cons: Driver disk is on DVD for what ever reason my nec drive would not read the disk but my new samsung did.

Pros: No problems whatsoever. Does its job well. Ugly splash screen CAN be disabled. Comes with BIOS upgrade utilities making upgrades easy.

Cons: Doen't have RAID support.
Only two fan headers (one CPU, one other) and the 'other' fan header is too far away from either of my fans to reach.
Has some solid overclocking options but not as robust as a DFI or upper level gigabyte board.

Great for entry level builds. 7/22/2008 9:49:47 AM

Pros: Worked great right out of the box. Loaded it up with 4gb of g.skill ddr2 800, and a q6600. Excellent linux support as well. Overclocks 800fsb cpus well. Can't beat it when you're using it how as it was designed.

Cons: Does not seem to accept FSB speeds over about 1400 very well. I've hit this wall with two different processors, and two sets of memory. So don't bother trying to OC a 1333fsb chip on this board, but results may vary.
