Summary: I'm STILL wondering how people can attempt overclocking without LEARNING WHY it fails...they seem to blame the parts for their lack of knowledge.
Pros: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118204 Buy the zalman 92mm fan and mount...point it at the chipset coolers on the mobo, THEY GET HOT...currently running my opteron 2.6 at 2.9 (226fsb, 1150 htt)...and oh yea, if you don't have at LEAST a 550W power supply, you're out of lu...
Cons: OUT OF STOCK...available on e-gripe for about 50% more than I'll pay for a USED board...
Cons: Computer began acting strange, like a component was not connected correctly. Found a heat-sink hanging on the motherboard. One of the connecting "rivets" was gone. This was not the processor heat sink but a heat sink integral to the M B.
Summary: Got my 4400+ X2 @ ~2.4GHz stable with this board but backed off because i only have stock cooling.
Pros: This board has never given me any problems. And I'm running Vista Ultimate on it and it loads just as fast with vista as my DFI lanparty running xp, and I'm running SATA 3gb/s on the DFI and ATA133 on this board.
Cons: Not so good for overclocking though it will do it. ASRock has not updated the drivers for Vista, the only problem i have is with the lan driver, it takes 20-30 minutes after logging in for it to connect to the internet but with XP it works fine.
Summary: I have truly enjoyed this board, I have Athlon FX-55, overclocked to and FX-57, the board also allows you to overclock the hypertransport, so I'm running at 1Ghz instead of 800Mhz. Board allows asynchronys overclocking.
Pros: This board is a quality product allowing you to use socket 939 with your older DDR400 RAM, AGP, and IDE hard drives. However, you can also upgrade your video card to PCI express and use SATA when you are ready to do so. Couple of other things I've found out, this is the only board out there that ...
Cons: No gigabit. Also you must buy a duaghter board to support AM2. That daughterboard will then take new RAM and the new Processor. From what I've seen that daughterboard is cheap, like $50 I think, but still that's almost as much as the motherboard itself!
Summary: This was a really cool board and nice chipset. Too bad its days have been numbered. Hoepfully the chipset will continue to survive. I see New Egg has these still listed as out of stock. Now does this mean they will be getting more in???? If not please take them off your web site.
Pros: I purchased 2 of these. One I have had for over a year. Great went from AGP to PCI. Running a X2 3800+ Can still go to AM2 with expansion board.
Cons: They no longer make these boards. I emailed the company and was told they are out of production. I have seen a few on the internet but they was too much $$$$ for them.
