Summary: Thanks ASUS and Newegg. I know this is an old product but I had to say thanks.
Pros: So I bought this mobo in 2008 and it was my primary gaming system till 2011. It works great and is very reliable. in 2011 I retired from gaming duty and it's been running 24/7 as my dedicated server. It runs Linux containers and KVM virtual machines (proxmox) all day every day. The onboard SATA c...
Cons: the onboard NIC is tied to the PCI bus and is a little slow.
Pros: I've owned this board quite a while and Ive gone through several setups latest is a quadcore. This board supports 8gigs of DDR-800, 2 ATI Radeons in crossfire. Without the need of a crossfire connector. This thing is absoultly amazing overclocking is easy as a whistle.
Summary: Will I be able to buy another one of these? Has not been in stock since I bought it.
Pros: Installed easy, came with plenty of connectors, cables, etc. Bios options are immense. I did not find the NB heat sink to be too close to the top video card slot. If you are buying a HUGE/expensive video card, this is likely NOT the MB you would buy any way.
Cons: Board does seem a little thin, flexes very easily. Be careful with it.
Summary: Phenom X4 9850 B.E. Asus M2r32 MVP 4gb Patriot 800mhz 2x2gb 2600 PRO
Pros: Just an excellent buy. 1. Supports my 9850 b.e. and the overclocking options are so easy a beginner could master it . 2. 2 PCI-EXPRESS x16 both running at full speed!!! 3. Super value for amount 4 . upgradeable to 8gb
Summary: Put an AMD Athlon 64X2 6000, 4-gig G-Skill suped-up memory, and a Radeon 3870OC card and this machine is playing every game thrown at it in a smooth and silky fashion. It is a bit cramped inside, and not too much thought was placed on where some connections were placed, but it is working...
Summary: Chose this board because it had no onboard video and an eSATA port. Shopped 'til I dropped and I'm very happy with my choice.
Pros: Great board, great documentation. Plays just fine with my Audigy sound card, using the basic drivers. Mated with an AMD 4850e dual-core CPU. Nice and quiet and cool. I'm not overclocking or gaming, just needed a solid machine to chunk digital images and home video. I scored.
Summary: Used AMD's cooler and AMD's pre-applied thermal goo. Got the CPU temp up to 104 degrees processing a video. Held there, then cooled right back down to the 80s, using the ASUS Probe II software. Using ASUS M2R32-MVP mobo.
Pros: See review title. I'm not playing Castle Wolfenstein. I'm not overclocking. I'm chunking mass quantities of digital images and home video editing. Q-fan feature controls case and CPU fans nicely to maintain quietude. Dual core. All for $57.
