Summary: The board is in good condition almost like new, except no manual book and the back panel plate. It work fine and running now can 't throw away my old chip quad core, still good for back up computer, that why I bought this board. shipping arrived on expected.
Summary: Got this to make my HTPC after acquiring some parts from a mostly dead computer. It's powering a Core 2 Duo e7200 with 4GB RAM running Windows 7. I have no complaints about it what-so-ever. It's been stable, quick, easy to configure, etc etc... My only slight gripe would be with the lack of ports. No HDMI, no optical/digital out, few USB ports(4 on the rear, two headers).
Summary: This board is remarkably stable and easy to get up to a 20% overclock with the built-in profiles. The micro size makes it a lot easier than a regular board to install in a full size case. Don't plan on AHCI or Raid, so this board is not the best for use with an SSD. The built-in graphics give about a 4.5 on the Windows 7 Experience Index. Overall, a great value to recycle your socket 775 processor and DDR2 ram.
Summary: The ASUS motherboard I was using started to give me problems. At least I think the problems I had with my computer was caused by it. So I replaced that one with one that is compatible with my processor and memory. My problem was solved. My computer is working again, although this board has fewer SATA connectors than my old one.
Summary: I purchased this board NEW about a month ago through E-Bay and it was a snap to set up and it performs flawlessly so far. The price is great for its class. I installed a Intel E8400 processor with 2gb of Super Talent pc8500 ddr2 1066mhz ram and a ATI HD 4650 PCI-E 1gb video card. I installed a Coolermaster Hyper TX3 heat sink and fan using Artic Silver compound.
Summary: While this board is primarily targeted at business and institutional use (which implies that reliability was emphasized in its design), it's also ideal for general purpose home and student computers, at a price that can't be beat. I bought two boards, along with $70 E5400 CPUs, to upgrade a couple of old eSystems boxes at minimal cost and ended up with very nice machines that I'd use for anything short of high-end gaming. I plan to buy another one for a home theater PC.
Summary: The HDMI output from this board does not work for me. ASUS tech support has been slow and not helpful at all. I have XP and they are telling me to use a Vista driver. HDMI output to my Toshiba REGZA TV is fuzzy and off the left and top edges of the screen, not the correct resolution. The Intel utility will get the top and left side back on the screen but the image is stiill fuzzy.
