This review is from: ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Copper heat distribution (no fans), large board with logical layout, external SATA port on IO, nice software bundle and extras. Attractive black board for windowed case. Nobody ever gave me more in one package.
Cons: Onboard USB wasn't responsive at first. Problem disappeared once OS was loaded. [With the add-in and front ports enabled, I have 8 USB now.]
Other Thoughts: I have no idea what some of you guys are complaining about. I used this as a base for a Vista 64 computer, and everything works flawlessly. I did not have to apply a new BIOS, disable the onboard LAN, or anything else like that to install the OS.
BIOS version 0903.
Athlon 64 X2 5600+, Patriot eXtreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800, WD 74 G Raptor (SATA), etc.
Pros: Dual-core. Everything you need in one package. Nice price. Easy install.
Cons: None noticed.
Other Thoughts: If you install Vista for the OS, you don't need to install the Cool n Quiet application.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: If you have a windowed case, this RAM looks snazzy, LOL. It's a shame to hide them in a closed case. Top performer, no problems. Popped 'em into an ASUS MSN-SLI Deluxe (AM2) and just plain works great.
Other Thoughts: I trust Patriot. I bought other Patriot RAM before, it always arrived beautifully packaged, and functions flawlessly.READ FULL REVIEW
