Summary: The board does support some newer hardware, of the period, and still holds on, but it is certainly not for the novice user and to date has an inadequate BIOS. The motherboard will test the patience of those whom wish to install and forget the device is there as it acts erraticallyat times and...
Summary: Received with 1 capacitor physically ripped off, and loose in the package. Marks, on the capacitor (I have pics), show probably grabbed with pliers, and pulled off. Since I needed this board, I DID replace the cap.
Summary: What else can I say this is a great and robust board. I bought it three years ago and it still runs fantastically. I have a quad core processor in it and a 2GB Radeon HD 6950. I primarily use it for high end gaming and local media streaming.
Summary: Purchased this board back in Nov 2009, ended up with Revision 1.6. It's been slowly crapping out on me over the past 6 months, and now is completely gone. One year of being a good little mobo and doing what it's told, 6 months of fighting. Guess I need to move my upgrade plans up by 2 years.
Summary: This was not like some of the flimsier boards I've seen. The quality is good. It has a backup BIOS image which is useful. Built in LAN ports and audio are nice. The built in audio is alright. You can upgrade to a better soundcard after you test it for yourself.
Summary: Seems they're not retailing these NIB anymore. Still thought I'd throw in my 2cents. These MB are still in wide use and have something of a following. I have MB ver 1.6 Had this board for a year now and am happy with it. It's never failed.
Summary: Bought this board about a year ago and found out quickly one of the memory slots is bunk. I didnt really mind it as the comp ran fine when I used the other two slots. Recently I decided I needed a memory upgrade so I decided to take advantage of the 3 year warranty.
Summary: I bought this to replace an older ASUS board that fried (Pepsi Syndrome). Everything about it is just as advertised. It was a snap to set up, and it lit up on the first try (the first one I received was DOA, but Amazon replaced it with zero hassle. This is why I buy almost exclusively from Amazon).
