Pros: Very cheap.
Runs all my games at max settings with good fps.
Overclocked in catalyst control center to 875/1185, i have no need to go any higher even though ive heard of close to 1000/1200.

Cons: Kind of large, my case is big enough but it has integrated cable ties at the end of the motherboard tray that this kind of runs into but not a big problem.
Only 1 DVI connection, could have come with some kind of display port adapter, again not a big deal though.
I can tell this thing is sucking alot of power.

Other Thoughts: Very glad this wasn't DoA as it seems 1/10 are based on reviews but im guessing some of them might have been due to insufficient power supplies, i can tell this thing is draining alot of power from my OCZ 600w PSU, harddrive seems to be acting a bit slower because of it, going to consider going 700w+

5 out of 5 eggs Good board, even open box 04/08/2010

This review is from: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Everything worked on first start up. it has a core unlocker and overclocking software but i started with a phenom X4 and used AMD overdrive + BIOS settings instead

Cons: the GPU NOS seemed like a nice feature but it dosent work with my card, i didnt look up the compatibility but i can say it dosent accept a radeon 4650, think it might just be for the onboard video.

Other Thoughts: i bought this open box so it didnt come with a manual or software but thats all avaliable on the asus site, started up first time with an AMD 955, OCZ reaper 1600 and a new HD. also the I/O shield was a bit finicky but i won eventually.

Pros: Very fast when overclocked and the heat spreaders are stylish after you get over the size of them

Cons: Pictures dont do these justice, they are very large, if you have a cooler that gets close to the ram slots these wont work
