Summary: This motherboard uses DualBIOS, which is an incredible feature that every motherboard in the world should use, and it is very compatible with Coreboot and 100% free software. If you want a computer that is able to run with freedom, but also supports a good CPU, then get this one.
Summary: Pros + + Small + Well built + Easy to read instructions + Looks great + Decent for overclocking + Bios are simple and functional + TONS of inputs and outputs on the I/O panel + Works with AM3 processors.
Summary: I like the motherboard well enough; stable at spec'd voltages, 4G RAM, Ubuntu linux, etc. My biggest disappointment was that the integrated video doesn't support HDMI and DVI video simultaneously; if you want dual monitors with the integrated video, one of them has to use the analog D-SUB connector.
Summary: Installation was rather easy - mounted CPU and memory on MB before putting it in the case, first time I do it like this. Posted at 2nd try - had forgotten to plug in the CPU power header in the first try. So you could say that it posted right away (with Athlon II X2 250).
Summary: The MA785GMT-UD2H motherboard has a lot going for it. It is relatively inexpensive at $80.00 on Newegg as of this morning. For that price you get the full package including the best featured integrated graphics on the market, High Definition Audio in the form of the Realtek ALC889A CODEC, low noise...
Summary: when configured to the max 8GB, Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit fails. Removing a 2 GB memory stick and all was well. Otherwise, no problems. Have not figureed out a memory workaround but it was very frustrating. Problem appeared during large (>1 GB) file copies. System froze. Seems to be an Ubuntu issue.
Summary: This motherboard is pretty well built quality wise, all components looks solid and long lasting. Plenty of features also. One big drawback!!!! Becareful if you use a long video card for example i'm using a geforce 250 and 3 of the sata ports gets blocked by the GFX card...
