Summary: I love this board so much and use it as an HTPC. I don't really use the S3 igp because it's just plain to slow, even for simple Windows Aero animations. There were some problems with the Windows boot but the newest bios fixed it. All-in-all this is a good board and I can recommend it.
Pros: Uses very little energy, pcie slot (not many vx900 boards have a pcie slot), S3 IGP, red, a lot of usb ports for a board priced 60$, silent mode is silent, good audio chip
Summary: Yes this motherboard works with Mac OS , as long you find the right bootloader and the correct instructions to have it installed.

Summary: This VIOTECH 3100+ mainboard is one of the best, Vista Ready, mainboards I've ever owned. For the first time, every port on my computer case works. That includes all USB and speaker ports in the front, and in the back.

Summary: This motherboard has series heat issues. 3 of the motherboards I had died with 1 month of each other. Why is there no fan on the heatsink? My temps were 50-60c. There is a better board found here on Newegg. [...] This is a better board! Will never trust or buy another Biostar product again!
