Summary: I purchased two of these for some low cost PC's for office. The fan over the NB chip went out on both boards after a few months. The location of this fan makes it difficult to replace because of location to the video card. Other than that this has been a great little mobo and bargain basement price.
Summary: i'll keep this short and sweet. the northbridge fan goes from noisy, to seizing after a few months, and replacing it is almost impossible because finding a low enough profiled fan is next to rediculous.
Summary: I bought this motherboard because of the Athlon CPU I wanted to buy. I've had no complaints in the last....6 months that I have been using it. Computer works GREAT, it's fast, and thanks to the quality components that I paired the mb with, I don't have anything but good marks for this thing.
Summary: Get one now, before they're gone. I installed a AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+, 2 sticks of 512mb DDR400, nVidia 7200 PCI-e graphics card. It runs perfectly. I had a little trouble installing drivers, but MSI's website is good, they had everything I needed.
Summary: A few days after the 30 day warranty expired from Computer Brain the PX Express Slot died, they wouldn't take it back and so I had to deal with the manufacturer directly. I had to pay to ship it back to MSI, they replaced it and then sent it back to me.
Summary: This MOBO is really supreme.It's given me nice performance and quality. By the time of this review I have it built with: Athlon 64 3200+ working with the coolest ULTRA heatpipe, (planing to upgrade to Athlon 64 X2), 1GB OCZ EL DDR400 PC 3200 Dual ch.
Summary: I just bought this mobo with Athlon64 3200+ and installed XP on it. It works flawlessly. I do not even need to tweak the BIOS. The mobo seems to be well made. All the capacitors are of Japanese brands.
Summary: I own two of these motherboards. Both PCs I built them into are having problems after several months. I've swapped out components over and over and it's obvious the motherboards have issues. One machine freezes randomly during POST, the other shuts down with no notice every 24 hours or so.
Summary: This board is excelent. All devices work like a charm and it's good looking too, for those of you who mod cases and all that. I upgraded from a MSI K7N2 Delta (the premium type, ILSR I think) and this one got most features the other one had with the notable exception of dolby audio and firewire...
