Great Replacement

  • Summary: I bought this as a one for one swap of a blown board just like it. That way I did not have to reload anything. Works perfectly.

4+ years and going strong

Joseph W., Newegg

  • Summary: Super MB layout for me to take advantage of all the "old" IDE drives I've got laying around. With only one on-board IDE I'm using one Koutech PIR133 PCI IDE Controller Card for RAID ( two 1T Stripes ) and a couple of StarTech 2port PCI cards.
  • Pros: MB is solid and reliable: been running for 4+ years. After a boot drive fail I'm rebuilding as a Hard Drive farm. Took Windows 7 Pro x64 without a hitch. Plenty of no-board fan headers. 6 SATA connectors.
  • Cons: Only one IDE Header

  • Summary: Keep your case open and you've got yourself a nice space heater.
  • Pros: Good way to bridge the gap between older (IDE, PCI) and newer (SATA, PCI-E) interfaces. Quality circuitry; purchased this in 2006 and it worked fine until I finally retired it from daily use a little over a year ago. Just fired it up again recently and it still runs fine.
  • Cons: After a year or so the fan retention bracket eventually broke under the weight of aftermarket cooling (AC Freezer 64 Pro). Was easily replaced though. Southbridge is HOT. Idles in the 40'sC in open air, 60C in a case. The radiator positioning almost makes sense -- placing it to the left of the CP...

ASUS M2N-E

Chris S., Newegg
20 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought this MB with an AMD X2 4200 and a 2x2GB set of memory. The MB did fantastic for almost a year. I then decided I needed more memory (I had been planning for a while). I purchased 4 more GB of memory for a total of 8GB. Unbelievable problems.
  • Pros: Good MB. Very impressed with it so far.
  • Cons: Problems with interrupts. See below.
