Was able to upgrade years later

David T., Newegg
23 February 2014
  • Summary: I appreciate items that just keep running. This one served as my daily PC for years but has served as a video compressor for the last two years. Now it will be a Linux box with respectable power courtesy of the new PC.
  • Pros: After years of operation with an Athlon X2 3800+, I was able to upgrade this in early 2014 with a used Athlon II X4 610e. The BIOS update made its recognition trouble-free.
  • Cons: Upgrading to a good volume of RAM was more troublesome, since it features only two DIMM slots, with a max of 8 GB. I opted for a pair of 2GB DIMMs for a total of 4 GB.

Fair for the price

Justin M., Newegg
1 December 2013
  • Summary: I would like to point out that at the time of this posting the motherboard in question is at least 5yrs old now and dosnt even have DDR3 support
  • Pros: Cheap, and moderately powerful when I bought it. it supports the newest Phenom II processors, and though displaying a warning about the processor not being compatible on start up I have never had any trouble with it. the build also had a 550 watt powersupply 4GB DDR2 800 ram running XP 64bit with...
  • Cons: About a year of having this the motherboard died. Though reasonable because the caps are only rated for 5000 hours of life which being constantly on is not even half that time. I had wished I figured this out before buying a new CPU.

Decent mobo for the price

Bernard U., Newegg
31 October 2012
  • Summary: Came with a mobo and was simple and easy to setup.
  • Pros: Good price, uses ddr2, fits AM3 cpus, good to have for the inlaws and works if my mobo dies for whatever reason, I can still use this as an emergency spare.
  • Cons: No ddr3 support? Not it's fault if it wants to still support AM2 and AM2+ cpu's which are on the cheap right now.

Worked well for awhile

Nora B., Newegg
7 August 2012
  • Summary: I would have given this card 4 stars if it hadn't started failing on me.
  • Pros: Cool and Quiet lets the board underclock itself to save power when you don't need a lot. It's easily overclocked also, and quite reasonably priced.
  • Cons: After about 8 months the onboard lan stopped working and about a month later the onboard SATA stopped working also. The board still works, I just need to use a lan and sata card, annoying but not the end of the world.

Cheap mobo, no OC'ing

Jonathan A., Newegg
6 October 2011
  • Pros: cheap, comes with the ASUS brand name
  • Cons: ethernet port stopped working after 5 months, DOES NOT OC AT ALL. I put the CPU and RAM in another motherboard and OC'd without a problem, this one wouldn't even do 10% above stock. Pass if you would like to have the ability to OC at all.

Great!!!

Carson H., Newegg
27 September 2011
  • Summary: I got it in a combo for 130, mobo+cpu+ram. Great board.
  • Pros: I am no grad or anything but this little board has been nothing but great. I never reviewed it cause I never thought to until I needed the specs to put a quad in it. I was very disappointed about what people where saying. Currently I have a dual core in it and 4 gigs of ram and a HD 6850. Its per...
