Item was listed as "New OEM" but came in an opened anti-static bag
2 March 2012
Summary: Item was listed as "New OEM" but came in an opened anti-static bag without original documentation and a burnt copy of the driver CD. Motherboard failed to power on. I bypassed the power sense pin and was able to get it to boot but it froze in the middle of installing Windows XP and is now completely dead. I cannot comment about the quality of the motherboard because it was obviously used and not functioning when I received it.
Summary: this motherboard looked like it would be cool, and i was interested cuz it could do pentium d, and core 2 conroe cpu. But the via chipset is super limited/ asus uses via better, and the board only works like an 845g intel board, and it has no built-in graphics, but it can do sata, only like 865 intel chipset. overall, i don't trust the board, and would never recommend it, never to no one. it's cool in bios for overclocking, which i'm not interested in.
