Summary: This motherboard has been working stably for me for the last 2 years. It allows a bit of overclocking, has great passive cooling, and in general works very well. It's only shortcomings are a lack of AHCI compatibility from its SATA controller and (at least for me) a lack of USB ports on the back (i have a lot of USB peripherals).
Summary: I like this product based on the fact that it is very user friendly and is priced very well. it runs smooth and was very easy to install into the computer case. I had a HP a6500f and the mother board blew out on it so i did the research and this mobo was the best for the price that would accept the hardware i have. I have worked on computers before but never installed a mobo. the install was common sense and if you know where your plugs go then your set.
Summary: I have used over 300 of these boards in work station installs, NOT 1 ISSUE!! Been using these since they came out and have been very happy with the reliability. Have also used them in my 3 home HTPC's and they work great for that application. What else can I say, GREAT PRODUCT!!
Summary: This motherboard is a tiny m-ATX board. Has onboard graphics and supports lga775 up to core 2 quad. The northbridge however, would overheat when i installed a pci-e graphics card. I tried first with an nvidia 7900gs, then with an nvidia 9800gt. Both would overheat the northbridge so that the only way i could use it was to leave the side panel off and blow a big fan directly onto the northbridge heatsink.
Summary: I would beware this particular product especially if purchased from Deal Barn. 1. The Board I received from them was NOT the board listed here, it was the P5KPL-CM/1600. This board is an Engineering Board and support is practically non-existent. I discovered this through ASUS Support over the phone with them today. The P5KPL-CM/1600 is a supposedly a European Board. 2. BIOS Cannot be updated due to it being an Engineering Model. 3.
Summary: As the other review said, this is a very good motherboard for your basic builds. Watch out for Deal Barn however, they did not mention that this was an OEM board (did not come in retail box, did not come with any IDE or SATA cables for connecting hardware). Also, it was a first generation board, so the bios should be updated. This is the only reason I give it 3 stars. If it were not OEM, I would have given it 5 stars.
Summary: i just installed a new computer and i got this motherboard and intel 2 quad 2.83 pro it work great only problem i had with it is the sound use via chepset and my pci dvr recording card does not like via chipset my second point is the pci slots are too low on the bottom of case and i have a high end graphic card that takes two spaces on the motherboard. i couldn't install it in the lowest pci slot because there is no room.
