Over 5 years and still running

  • Summary: Pretty much everything you would expect from a MoBo of this price point. If you have an old AM2+ CPU I would suggest this board for a mild to high end HTPC build
  • Pros: -Great Budget Board -Very good BIOS support -AM3 support(with BIOS update of course) -Convenient Placement of the x1 and x16 slots so that a dual slot GPU, and a high speed x1 wireless adapter can be used
  • Cons: -Only 2 dimm slots -Only 4 Sata ports -Onboard Graphics was ok for 2009, but in 2014 there isn't much that's weaker -Doesn't OC well, but it wasn't really intended for enthusiast level builders.

Great product for the price

Austin O., Newegg

  • Summary: This was the motherboard I chose for my first build, a home server running WHS. No regrets.
  • Pros: Worked great right out of the box, easy to set up, easy to use.
  • Cons: Not enough case fan plugs. I'm bad with technical terms, but if you look closely it only has 2 spots for fans, 1 for the cpu, 1 for a 'sys' fan. I have 2 case fans, so 1 is plugged directly into a molex connector and runs at 100% all the time. The other is plugged directly into the motherboard an...

hard to review! good and bad points

PATRICK N., Newegg
15 May 2009
  • Summary: the first board i got was DOA. but the second board worked perfectly except for the RAM problem. the average installer is not going to realize that you need to bump up the voltage for 2 sticks. plus, there is no voltage as in 1.8V, 1.85V, 1.9V, etc. for RAM. It's +50mV, +100mV.
  • Pros: great feature set for the price. hd audio, good graphics for an integrated chipset, lots of BIOS options, good enthusiast Foxconn utilities. devices are easy to install in Windows 7 and Vista. has a diverse amount of connections including a parallel port
  • Cons: there's no motherboard plug for the speaker. so yes, there's no way to tell what kind of posting problem you have. it can't detect the correct voltage for the ram so if you plug in 2 sticks and the system doesn't post, you have to take out the second stick, bump up the voltage for the ram in the ...

Good, but be careful

  • Summary: Stock heatsink runs Kuma at about 40c. Tried o'clock to 3ghz and started getting unknown bios error. Was going to RMA but Flashed BIOS with floppy(caldera dos) and problem went away. Checked mem with memtest86 and got errors until bumping voltage up to 2.5v.
  • Pros: Stable but you need to update bios if you are using AM+ and 1066 ram. Bumped 4gigs gskill ddr2 up to 2.5v and ran smooth with memtest86. Showed bad mem when at 2.0v. This is the 2nd of these boards I have used and am well pleased with them.
  • Cons: 24pin pwr slot kind of in the way and would like to see one more fan plug but the two that are present are 4pin. Coolermaster Elite 341 Gskill ddr2 1066 Kuma 7750BE Samsung 640gb hard drive LG and Samsung DVDRW

Bang 4 the Buck

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Support site could be a little better I think.
  • Pros: Cheap MB that supports AM2/+ processors. Fits great in my old HP Pavillion case. Not bad onboard video too. A lot of features to play with in the BIOS. Can actually OC the CPU, and onboard graphics.
  • Cons: Had trouble with the Realtek LAN drivers. Ended up just disabling it and using my PCI ethernet card.

Nice clean little board

Jerry K., Newegg

  • Summary: Remember Only 2 Ram slots so plan your Ram wisely.
  • Pros: Very well laid out board. Took it out of the box slapped it in and havent had to do squat. This is to replace an HP motherboard in a old pavilion and it works well. Bios is great, many options. On board Radeon 3100 gets a 3.9 Vista score, much better than other boards with the Nvidia 6100.
  • Cons: Printer port? No 1394 or eSata
