Happy I have it!

doramabel007, Ebay
4 June 2011
  • Summary: I believe this is a motherboard that has a good mix of the old and newer. Still uses DDR2 memory but that is ok if you use the fastest available. Works well with the AMD 975.

good motherboard, poor sound support in windows vista /7

Mauricio Antonio Castro, Amazon
27 December 2010
  • Summary: excellent build quality, solid caps, good bios options, overclocks like a champ, BUT the sound drivers are HORRENDOUS whenever I try to install the drivers the sound will cut off and start muting or switching channels on games, the default windows drivers are somewhat better (no cutting off) but still glitchy.

An Odd Mix of Features

W. B. Halper, Amazon
12 November 2010
  • Summary: I have a five-way grafted fruit tree in my backyard. Two branches have peaches, one has nectarines, one has plums and the last has apricots. I call it the Frankentree. This motherboard is like that tree. It works, but it's really strange. Some features, like AM3 and DDR3 support, are modern. Others, like the 9-pin serial port on the rear panel and the dedicated IDE connectors for floppy and Parallel ATA disk drives, are so old they're almost medieval.

Good Board for Upgrade

Bennabus, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: I got this board because I still had 4 gigs of good Corsair DDR2 but I wanted to move up from some of the older stuff I had. The price was good when I got it and it could handle all the old peripherals I had from my old PC. The overclocking features are a little basic, but they work, there's just a little switch you have to turn on on the board itself. It did a decent job of handling most everything I threw at it for a few years was always very stable.

  • Summary: Packaging was fine, the motherboard has been working for the last couple months without a hitch (well, the OC software doesn't work, but of the 5 motherboards I've owned it hasn't so not a big deal) Once again I'm impressed with what I got for the price
