Decent board, somce compatability issues.

  • Summary: This is a pretty decent board for the price, good extras and great documentation. I've hit some incompatability issues with my ATi Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB card. Apparently the Via 4in1 drivers are a fan of the 9800 Series of GPUs.

  • Summary: This motherboard is not compatible with Hauppauge PVR-500 MCE, apparently due to the promise raid set. The latest bios (1014) claims to fix this but it doesn't.

  • Summary: Please watch out, this board uses Marvell Gigabit drivers for the LAN connection. Marvell and Asus know this board has some big problems with the onboard LAN connection. Connection shows up as a "1394 Firewire" LAN connection even though you have it plugged into the RJ45 port in the back.

  • Summary: The board is easy to set up and everything is well labeled and documented. Do Not use with ATI 9800. There is a compatability issue that I have had. Many others have had the same problem on the ASUS website. Now looking for a new MB.

  • Summary: Took me a couple days to figure out that this board did not like the Kingston pair of 512 DDR. Random reboots. All is well when I replaced the Kingston with Mushkin pair.

  • Summary: love this board, however, if you plan on using a SATA harddrive, plan on having a bit of trouble setting it up. the manual is not very helpful with the sata setup, and i had to search the internet forever looking for a decent tutorial by someone with the same trouble.
