Works great

Bennett W., Newegg
6 January 2007

  • Pros: Simple setup, fast, 2xSATA, on-board LAN
  • Cons: No on-board 1394 firewire, no onboard video, slow boot time compared to other similar boards

SATA issues

Steven M., Newegg
3 December 2006
  • Summary: Not a bad board. So far it is running well and, other than the SATA issue, was easy to install
  • Pros: Price, easy to put together
  • Cons: Watch out for SATA drives. Before installing, download disk drivers from ASUS.com. A FLOPPY DRIVE is required to install.

Board is Good

JORGE A., Newegg
29 November 2006
  • Summary: SEMPRON 2800+ running at 1.92, ASUS K8U-X, PC3200 CORSAIR XMS 512MB, DIAMOND Radeon 9250 128MB, 60 GB Western Digital
  • Pros: Easy Install..RAM in weird place but that's okay. Work well with Sempron 2800+, over-clocked 20% and Running stable.
  • Cons: Okay, this is what I noticed with the On-board sound. If you use the font-port audio the back-panel will not work. So, Keep that in mind when buying this board.

Dead after a day

Michele C., Newegg
25 October 2006
  • Summary: RMA'ed this board and ordered a socket 754 nForce 4 4X and I've never been happier with a board. Go with an nForce or a VIA over this.
  • Pros: Nice BIOS, it's Asus. Excellent shipping/service from newegg.
  • Cons: Died within a day of receiving it, literally. Shut the machine down for the night, came back the next day and the board was shot. I've always wanted to try out a ULi motherboard, and I guess I've learned something.

This board is Terrible

Jonathan H., Newegg
20 October 2006
  • Summary: If you get through to anyone at Asus on the phone, ask to speak to Jessie. Unfortunately though, they may still play the "Transfer You to a Different Department" game until someone finally hangs up on you.
  • Pros: Worked well for about four months or so. Has SATA.
  • Cons: Computer now restarts when attemtping to install integrated sound card. Onboard NIC fritzes out as well. Asus' customer service was awful.

Good price/performance

Anonymous, Newegg
16 October 2006
  • Summary: This was a reasonable purchase, and you really can't beat the price to performance ratio. I feel like I should have noticed a small difference in performance (I'm coming from a Athlon XP 2700+) but there was no noticable difference.
  • Pros: Wanted to upgrade Motherboard/Processor without having to dump the extra money to upgrade RAM (I already had PC 3200 RAM).
  • Cons: Would have been nice to have Gigabit ethernet, but not a necessary addition (it is a value board, of course). Also, upon reinstalling Windows XP I had to install my SATA drivers. PITA, but I had to do that on prior installations as well (I had a Samsung Spinpoint SP1213C drive).
