Summary: must have xp service pack 1 for sound driver to install
Pros: no problems with this board. lots of nice features built in like firewire. Great budget board if you want socket 939. video great for older games. Can tide me over till I can afford a nice video card.
Cons: Video is limited. almost no overclocking options, only the ability to change RAM cas latency from 2.5 to 2. thats it. guess its better than nothing.
Pros: Great Board have been running for quite a while with no problems Very solid board!A year ago we were paying 200 bills for this board now I cant beleive its so cheap! Way to go Newegg! keep the great prices coming!
Cons: None never bought a bad part frome newegg! A five year customer!
Summary: I've tried taking out video card, sound card, and all peripherals...still same error. Disc is clean, installed on laptop no problem. Any ideas?!?!
Pros: I'm not sure yet
Cons: Everything...maybe someone could help. Got this mobo the other day as a replacement for the time being. trying to run it with a 3700 venice, x800xl, 2 GB of xms corsair ram, WD 74gb raptor...try to install windows and get's hung on "Setup is now starting Windows" screen. Any ideas?
Summary: The board does what it says it will and except for the obvious deficiencies, it works great. I must say though that had I known about the "Cons" I mentioned, I guess I would have gone a different route.
Pros: This board runs very cool compared to the Asus that I replaced. Where the Asus was running idle at 45-48C this board hasn't gotten over about 38C. Very impressed with that. Also, the onboard video seems to be way above the norm (Haven't replaced the video card that I fried along with the Asus boa...
Cons: The inability to overclock doesn't bother me at all. I don't do it. However, there are other issues. First, there is no connector for the cabinet front speaker. Second, the board does not have connectors for the front microphone jack and I can't get it to recognize my mic in order to use Skype vi...
Summary: You get what you pay for. for a little more money (ten bucks)get a board that isn't so finiky.
Pros: everything works
Cons: BIOS is a pain and there were other issues that had to be addressed before i was satisfied (there were problems that I have never seen before this board, a high pitch whine arose from my power supply after lots of parts swapping i could't find a solution until someone told me to disable the compu...
Pros: Here is my system configuration: CPU AMD|A64 3000+ 1.8G 939 MEM 512Mx2|CORSAIR D400 EVGA e-GeForce 7600 GT CO SUPERCLOCKED DVD BURN LITEON|SHM-165H6S Antec Case NSK 4400 Motherboard itself works great. Best surpise is how good the sound is when latest drivers are installed.
Cons: Integrated graphics ok. But let's be honest with ourselves, why should we expect the system to compete with a $200 graphics card! Manual might as well be in a foreign language, not very helpful!!
