Excellent.

M. Fred, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using one of these for 3 years primarily as an HTPC using Windows Media Server to watch and record TV from an antenna. The operative word in building this was "cheap", so I didn't want to buy a pricey sound card or video card.

Worked but yet did not

Eric P., Newegg

  • Summary: I bought this board thinking it would be a cheap alternative for a computer I wont even be using that much. When I first got the board hooked up it wouldn't boot up. The power supply I had in the computer had to be approaching 10 years so I figured that's probably what it was.
  • Pros: Cheap board decent features
  • Cons: Pay for what you get

Poor Sound Quality

Bryan Batten, Amazon
8 September 2012
  • Summary: Stay away from this turkey. First, there is no connector for the case speaker. Basically shows that the manufacturer skimps on quality. Second, and more important, the ALC662-based sound is atrocious.

Jose E., Newegg
21 August 2012
  • Summary: Well i see by all the reviews that a large number of these boards are bad but to have newegg charge me a restoking fee for a bad board plus i paid the shipping to send it back now it's on it's way back to me unrepaired or replaced it's a waist of my time and i never expected this from Newegg up to...
  • Pros: DOA=NONE
  • Cons: Arrived doa and damaged RMA back to newegg for replacement just to have them tell me that the board was damaged and was being sent back to me and told me to contact manufacturer for support What a waist of my time paid shipping and restoking fee for a board that was bad to begin with

It worked

Lawrence W., Newegg
15 August 2012
  • Summary: For those that are buying this economy board and then spending twice the $$ for a 125w fire breather....really!! Yea, it may work but just spend a little more for a more modern board.
  • Pros: Initially used an Athlon x2 and it was lame. Played musical cpus and changed to a Phenom x2 and it flew! Teamed with a halfway decent cpu and it works. It's one of the few still available that supports a floppy drive....if anyone really has to be able to use those old things.
  • Cons: For the $$ just can't complain.

wrong wrong wrong

  • Summary: more a response to jrock ... a 125w tpd cpu may "work" but that does not mean it is recomended or supported. a relative has one of these in an older "branded" pc with a mcp61 chipset. needed a replacement mobo to get another year or two out of her aii x2 220 ... decent board, no problems
  • Pros: inexpensive
  • Cons: am2+ based, old tech ... not really a con

125W Support

Jared M., Newegg
20 July 2012
  • Summary: Please disregard the "Foxconn support team" response from my previous post... I have absolute proof and no doubts at all that my friend is running the Phenom II 965 on this board. I double-checked the specs before I made my first post. I know his computer is functional, I see him every week.
  • Pros: 125W Support
  • Cons: Foxconn's disclaimer trying to tell me I'm wrong. Cute.

125W Support

Jared M., Newegg
18 July 2012
  • Summary: This board DOES support 125W CPUs. The reviews here are saying 95W max and that is just untrue. My friend was buying a new PC to replace his ancient rig with AGP/Pentium 4. I built this system for him before reading the (incorrect) reviews here.
  • Pros: 125W Support. Performance on a budget.
  • Cons: None really, see other thoughts.

Love it

Craig M., Newegg
11 July 2012
  • Summary: The software on the CD is old as dirt. When running it to look for updates it said everything was up to date, nothing was.
  • Pros: Great board, and when coupled with an Athlon dual core its a very solid pair for about $110.
  • Cons: There is no place to attach a speaker to the motherboard. There is what appears to be a place but it has 3 leads, not 2.
