Summary: I don't even know why my brother bothered with this mobo especially it had AMD 3000+ so it didn't really worth replacing my gigabyte mobo
Pros: It runs my AMD X2 3800 CPU socket 939 It has some modern techs like cool n quiet and super boot
Cons: Seriously horrible drivers provided on CD so skip that and get them from the net if you don't want to see BSOD after 3 years the Capacitors all popped so I had to replace them nforce chipset's fa,n like everybody else said it just sucks my brother had to replace it and have a backup already just ...
Summary: Figured I'd have a better than 70% chance of getting a good cost effective way of utilizing my old components. Newegg still my prefered source dispite the disapointment (was a christmas gift for upgrade) and no replacement available. Refunded all costs to me.
Summary: Do yourself a favor and download the drivers directly from nvidia. DO NOT let my con's outweigh my pro's this is a good board once you get it up and running.
Pros: Now that i have it running correctly it runs smooth and stable. Run it with 2 gigs of ram 184 pin, athlon 64 fx-55, geforce 7950gt and it gets 170 fps on the valve test. Not bad at all and cheap!
Cons: The reason my title is "third time is a charm" is because that is how many times i had to reload the bios and windows before i realized that it was the stupid drivers on the CD that comes with the board that were messing me up. It would act fine for about 10 secs and then freeze... Other than tha...
Summary: Someone else already said this which is what clued me in but I want to repeat it... the drivers included on CD will not work for you... you MUST download NForce 4 Ultra drivers directly from NVIDIA to get the network card, audio, etc to work.
Pros: Not many people are making 939 MB's now Price
Cons: Layout of the board puts the chipset fan under my beefy vid card which I imagine can not be good. Driver CD that was included doesn't work.
Summary: In all, this is a terrific deal for anyone who already has some DDR laying around along with a s939 CPU. I got this MB and the 3600+ X2 here on Newegg for under $100, along with a COOLER MASTER XK8-9ID3A-0L-GP 92mm Rifle CPU Cooler for $6 shipped.
Pros: Inexpensive, stable, good overclocking capabilities in BIOS.
Cons: Onboard sound (like most) is lacking. Cheapy NB fan looks like it won't last to long.
Summary: i bought a Mach Spees MSNV 939 from the competition and it seems to be an excellent product with similar specs and has a $20 rebate bringing final cost to 49.99 not knocking Newegg as I am a loyal customer , and not slamming foxconn as I have 2 other machines using foxconn boards a socket A and a...
Pros: pros are thaT i HAVE 2 OTHER MACHINES WITH FOXCONN BOARDS THAT WORK.
Cons: poorly designed product that never worked , BUYER BEWARE LOOK AT ALL THE 1,2 AND 3 STAR REVIEWS ON THIS PRODUCT.
Summary: Foxconn would not honor the rebate. I followed the directions to the "T" and still haven't recieved a rebate. I didn't lower the Overall rating of the board because of this. It's the companies fault not the board's =D.
Summary: This board is a bit touchy. I'm not real pleased with the layout, but I am using an older model case, but I never had any problems with any other board fitting well. I've build systems for the last twenty years and this board has some tricks to it.
Pros: It work's and it pretty fast for an older board.
Cons: Out of the box the board recognized the installed devices, loaded windows but would not recognize the hard drive as a boot device unless I forced it in the BIOS. Cleared cmos and boot tables reloaded windows and loaded CD drivers along with the video card drivers. Locked up within a few minutes. ...
Cons: Everything! I bought it to replace my old motherboard because I bought a Dual Core Processor. So we installed everything and i put in my Graphics card ( Ati 1650) and Guess wat? Want compatible. It is only compatible with 4 cards and there all low end graphics cards! Dont buy this!
