Love It!

Aaron H., Newegg
25 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought this to replace an ECS motherboard. The computer ran with the ECS, but it was never quite right, nor speedy. Plugged all the components into this board and it took right off! Its like having a bran new computer.
  • Pros: 128mb Sideport memory really helps out the integrated graphics. It can crossfire by having two PCIE slots on the board, so is upgradable. Gives you the option to CrossfireX-Hybrid or just plain Crossfire.
  • Cons: The cooling on the northbridge seems a bit weak at first glance. However, there hasn't been any issues yet.

Worked like a charm

Timothy G., Newegg
2 January 2010
  • Summary: I installed this in an ASRock A780GXH/128M motherboard. I was a bit worried it wouldn't work since it isn't listed on the ASRock site as a compatible processor, but it worked beautifully. It booted the first time. The BIOS recognized it as the correct processor, and it recognized both cores.
  • Pros: Worked the first time I booted it up.
  • Cons: Really none.

Good board overall

Timothy G., Newegg
2 January 2010
  • Summary: I would have given this a 5 if it wasn't for the sound problems. The installation was pretty straight forward. It might have been better if the board came with the drivers for Windows 7. I got them off of the ASrock website with no problem however. This is a nice fairly inexpensive board.
  • Pros: Works well.
  • Cons: I had problems getting the onboard sound working and had to disable it in BIOS and install a sound card. The soundcard works fine.

Good motherboard for the price

Jessie K., Newegg
31 December 2009
  • Summary: I say this motherboard deserve the 5 stars.The price is right,crossfire support,oc utility,and extra sata cables if I need them in the future.
  • Pros: Good chipset Recognized all the hardware with no issues Very easy overclocking utility in the bios Crossfire support when I decide to grab another video card Overclocked my Phenom x4 9650 to 2.9ghz stable
  • Cons: Not really a huge con,but I am still new to the overclocking world of trying to get the 9650 processor to reach at least 3ghz.The bios option seems a bit confusing,since I see different ways of messing with the bios.
