Summary: Bought this to revive an old system. Running with a Pentium 4 670 CPU, works as described. Good price for what I need it for. For some reason, my abit wifi pci adapter doesn't work with it, but that's because the adapter is not compatible with Win7~
Summary: I ordered this motherboard to replace the failing ASUS P5-B Deluxe in my desktop PC (used for photo processing, mostly). It allowed me to use my good dual-core Pentium processor, up-scale graphics card, the RAM modules I already had, and connect the three internal SATA hard drives.
Summary: The board is simple and uncomplicated. It is an easy install and survived the trip to Australia without an issue. The PCI-E slot for your video card won't cover the PCI slot as they are sufficiently apart and so, if like me you need a fax/modem to send faxes, then fear not.
Summary: I've got this board working with Ubuntu Server 10.04. A couple things though: To get it to properly poweroff, the following line should be added to /etc/default/grub GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=force" There is chatter on the web about this boards ethernet not functioning.
Summary: Per most the other reviews in here, this is a good motherboard for the money. I built the system so my kid could play Starcraft II. Used Pentium, dual core 2.93GHz 1066MHz 2MB LGA775 processor with build. BIOS is easy to navigate, some options available for MB tweaking, for those interested.
Summary: Used this board for two budget machines I recently built along with the . They work well together and the board has really good overclocking features for such an inexpensive little thing (MicroATX).
Summary: For a low end board this is very stable. I'm using a single core 3.2GHz that is over clocked to 4.2GHz and it is running very stable. Color coated slots on the board makes it easy to assemble even for the novice computer user.
