Summary: New as described and exact duplicate of my old board which was fried and my customer needed to have this same mother board to operate the original harddrive with all its files in order to continue their business and it worked flawlessly. I would recommend however to keep the motherboard components maintained and free of dust accumulation to prolong the life.
Summary: Bought it from OEM XS INC Seller Very solid Motherboard for those who still has premium DDR2 memory + Core 2 Duo 775 CPU. I bought it to replace a DP35DP which died and i must say that i am very satisfied (And just for 50 bucks). Also, i was surprised by the ammount of memory this board support, 16GB of ram, if only were easy to find 4GB DDR2 sticks, would be great. I also recommend the seller, they shipped the MoBo very fast. Everything on schedule.
Summary: Shipping was super quick and arrived the following day after ordering it. It is exactly what I wanted for an older board. A solid stable board that excepts DDR2. The only reason it is getting 4 stars and not 5 is because of the extreme lack of features in BIOS. I knew that it wouldn't allow over-clocking but I wasn't prepared for just how bare the settings would be in BIOS. Be aware that there is no parallel printer port so say goodbye to your ancient printer.
Summary: This board was an easy fix for me when my Asus board got a lightning strike through the coax connection. I'm using a Q8400 CPU and 2, 2 Gig Patriot memory sticks, P/N-PSD32G13332 (2GB PC3-10600 1333MHz CL9).
Summary: If you're looking for a motherboard that offers no surprises and just works, this is the one for you. I put it in a storage server and haven't had to restart it for anything but kernel updates. This is not a gamer motherboard, it lacks in the overclocking department. But for those of you just looking for stability, this motherboard provides.
Summary: Instruction page is inadequate and MOBO is the worst for setup that I have ever encountered. If you are not already familiar with replacing motherboards, you will have difficulty installing this one. After hooking up all the wiring (power, fans, and data), the computer failed to boot. It seems the default setting in BIOS is for a network boot.
Summary: I had an MSI MOBO in my custom built 'puter that took a fritz on me unexpectedly........I needed a new MOBO immediately and Amazon came through as usual......overnight delivery as promised and I was back up and running in 2 days after rebuilding all of the hard and software.......I like that this MOBO is expandable up to 16 GB of DDR2 RAM....... It does not support a floppy drive, but who needs those anymore?
