Summary: Highly reliable product. I bought this motherboard here in Tokyo, Japan. This is one solid motherboard. I have had zero issues with it. I've overclocked my C2D E8400 to over 3.6Ghz stable 24/7 on generic memory. Currently using 32bit Vista, but I will upgrade soon considering this motherboard can support upto 16GB of memory :D I've build at least a dozen computers in my day, starting with the S370 generation.
Summary: I bought this board to replace a P5N-D sli board (it had issues)This board is non-sli and I was afraid I wouldn't like it, but it's actually faster than my previous board. WEP scores are nearly identical with just one video card installed. Layout is great and has some awesome features. Nice board overall...
Summary: This board overclocks really well, the only suggestion I would have is to add a fan on the northbridge heatsink or use a memory fan since the northbridge heatsink gets really hot . Native support for DDR2-1200 and 1600fsb. All the settings one would ever need for overclocking. IMO, this is the best single PCI-Expressx16 slot socket 775 motherboard out there.
Summary: Love this Motherboard, using it to build a new computer for my 9 year grandson. Flashed to Wolfdale Bios support. Running E6500 processor for virtualization of Win 7 x64 to be able to use older flight sim programs. Future "TOP GUN" in the making.
Summary: Good solid board. No trouble setting up at all. If you want to get into the Bios though, that&apos;s another story. If you want to know who else doesn&apos;t know what all the stuff is,,,,,,,,call ASUS. That being said,,,,I would recommend this board to anyone who can&apos;t afford the latest and greatest. Coupled with a fast chip and fast memory, it runs really good and fast.
Summary: I bought a new old stock board. The 775 chipset is getting old but is still fast enough for an HTPC or even some decent gaming. I had Gigabyte 775 board that failed and this was similar and could operate all my drives, peripherals and a good processor so it was a logical move to just replace it and count myself lucky that I could find a board that worked with everything in my rather huge system. Asus makes very good and stable boards and this one certainly is that.
"Great Mobo for new builders and high end gamers alike."

Pros: Board was easy to install and fired right up using Core2Duo E7500 2.93GHz processor. System is very fast and has been completely stable. No BSOD at all. Bought this board used for a song and I am very satisfied. Would reccomend to almost anyone.
Cons: Small heatsinks next to processor anre held on a little flimsy, and the thermal tape they used is a bit cheap. Not a big deal for me as I always pull all heatsinks off and put Artic Silver compound on all chips. Now it runs very cool (<75F.)
Summary: I love this motherboard it does all I ask of it, I have no crashes, it performs at peak at oll times, I can run mutible apps. at the same time and doesn't even slow down. Best board I have ever owned.
