Summary: Good board was a solid replacement for my customers pc. Stable Bios, and plenty of features for a older gen motherboard. Only problem was it didn't support the 125w 6000+ Windsor CPU I had planned for it, when an emachines AM2 board I used for testing would. So I guess ya ..it worked but not as well as I hoped it would. So As long as you dont own a 125 w AM dual core CPU This board is a perfect solution for an AM2 based system.
Excerpt: When I burnt my other mainboard out (an aging p2 MSI variant) I needed something urgently to replace it - being mid program. So, off I went to my usual websites, and spotted this. It seemed to have reasonable reviews, so i purchased one not thinking it'd be hugely special, just reliable and simple. Boy, was I suprised! First off, its well laid out - everything is accessable, labelled and well explained in the manual. Second of all, its thoughtfully spec'd.
Excerpt: I have used MSI boards for years finding them generally very reliable.. I have had a problem with the USB on this board and there are reports of radom power offs and crashes which can be read elswhere - I have not suffered from this. Expansion is excellent and the board is very quick. The MSI utilities are useful especially the bios and driver updates which so far have been very reliable.
Pros: Plenty of expansion slots
Cons: Some serial numbers have had random shutdown problems
