MSI 760GM-E51 AM3 AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent 11/20/2010

This review is from: MSI 760GM-E51 AM3 AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Supports "legacy" devices (Great). Easy Bios setup to
over clock. Used the On board video and audio and it was
a breeze. We installed a USB 3.0 (Buffalo) expansion card.

Cons: Lacks a PS/2 port for mouse - had to use USB. Not that bad
of a con, except USB ports come in handy for much faster devices.

Other Thoughts: We booted of the C Drive off the USB 3.0 Buffalo expansion Card on Windows XP and it took off! Amazing.

Windows XP SP3, 4G DDR3 (Crucial Ballastix 1333 overclocked to 1600); Buffalo 1x USB 3.0 expansion card (Boot Device); Dane-Elec 500 Gigagbyte USB 3.0 external drive (Drive C); Sata Hitachi 2TB "D" Drive; 22x DVD-RW (Samsung) PATA; 550 Watt Power Supply (Dynex); AMD
AM3 Athlon II Dual Core 4000 HT (Overclocked to 3.6 Ghz);
9-1 Memory Card Reader; Lanbox Cube case; 8 internal fans.

Foxconn A88GMX AM3 AMD 880G + SB710 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Supports most of the latest technologies including 6x core

Cons: No IDE port. Requires way to much to boot it up. Mobo
has 8 pin 12v connector (Only the moderate to expensive
PS have that interface) + 24 pin connector AND 1 molex
12 v "auxiliary" power connector. Booted up with 600 watt
PS. Supports almost no "legacy" peripheral devices.

Other Thoughts: We don't like motherboards that have No options for drives (NO IDE PORT). Apparently, Foxconn doesn't believe in keeping your older peripheral devices (Oh, and Fox, yes, that STILL DO make IDE Hard drives ANd Optical drives). We have taken Foxconn OFF our motherboard list to order from.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X7SBE LGA 775 Intel 3210 ATX Intel Xeon/Core 2/Pentium/Celeron Server Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: We never could find any "pros" on this motherboard

Cons: No CPU Retention bracket. We scoured the internet
looking for one - most difficult to find. We found some
vendors looking for 20.00 to ship one. No Thanks.
Even a Magician could install a cpu without the bracket.

Other Thoughts: Nice Box
