Summary: This board is very nice for the money. I'm using the SATA Raid controller, and a Sempron 2800. You need to update the BIOS first thing, cause this doesn't support the new Semprons until you update. After that, smooth sailing.
Summary: Well, i bought this board and i did have the minor ATA HD problem soem have, but that was easily fixed... no biggie.... worked without a single problem untill about a week ago it just kinda went "PoOfFf" nothing unusuall happend.
Summary: I unpackake the board install everything as I am suppose and I have been doing this for years, I checked the board wasn't grounded any where and all the standoffs were properly installed. I even triple checked the specs of the power supply which I bought from here.
Summary: Been running this board for almost a year now, and not a single issue has popped up. Running it with an AMD64 Athlon 3200+, and runs smooth no matter what I do to it. A must have board for socket 754 processors.
Summary: Beware MyLOGO utility corrupted my BIOS and caused it to be non-bootable, although ASUS sent me a free replacement BIOS chip but not until they sent me the wrong one first. Stable board, simple BIOS, serves its purpose cheap and reliable.
Summary: I also had problems with a BIOS startup error 0163. I corrected this with a BIOS flash using the EZ-BIOS method and then accepting default settings. Even though I had a single HD, I only got XP to setup after installing the SATA RAID driver.
