HT Link problems

Kyle P., Newegg
29 January 2012
  • Summary: Good price but buying this motherboard is hit or miss. Bought the extended warranty for another year because it could fail. Motherboard has stability problems with no overclocking.
  • Pros: Works well when it works. Good price. Overclockable, but I had problems just getting it to stay stable for games.
  • Cons: Occasionally the HT Link speed will exceed the north bridge frequency causing lockups. This happens when it is under load and during games after about 5 minutes. Underclocking your HT Link increases stability. I recommend underclocking it to 1800 or even 1600 mhz. Also has issues with the usb per...

Nice for the price

Nicola Y., Newegg
11 January 2012
  • Summary: Again, a great board for my mid-range standards. I've yet to utilize the OC Genie.
  • Pros: Decent price for a decent board. No major problems as of yet, and handles my mid-range computer. AMD Athlon II X3 450 Rana 3.2 GHz EVGA GTX 460 Superclocked CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W 2x 4 Gigs of DDR3 1333 Ram
  • Cons: Had a sudden reboot shortly after turning on my PC, but I don't know if that's the boards fault or something else. Hasn't happened anymore, hopefully it won't.

  • Cons: I am now wishing I would have gone with a full size board, but if you don't need Crossfire, this is the board for you.

Bad Board

Kevin K., Newegg
9 November 2011
  • Pros: Works good when it does.
  • Cons: Board only works for a couple of months then stops working. Have gone through 3 RMA's since Jan 2011. Also memory sockets too close to CPU socket, certain CPU fans will cover ram slots making 2 of the sockets unusable.
