It was a pretty neat motherboard. I needed something pretty cheap and decent to support this pentium D i had laying around. it supports it 100% but the only problems i've had with this motherboard is that it will not boot off of a s-ata drive so i had to go out and buy a IDE drive, and that the pci-e graphics only runs at 4x so i have to now go out and buy a new graphical card that will allow me to use 4x instead of 16x cause currently i have a 8400GS and it does not allow x4. i don't like that there isn't solid cap capacitors on the motherboard and that it doesn't use ferret core choke but i don't mind that because i heard no coil whine. The board has very good support for its HD audio and the chipset doesn't get hot at all. infact the pentium D i put in there doesn't get nearly as hot as it used to on my old broken motherboard and i saw no loss in performance.
this motherboard looked like it would be cool, and i was interested cuz it could do pentium d, and core 2 conroe cpu. But the via chipset is super limited/ asus uses via better, and the board only works like an 845g intel board, and it has no built-in graphics, but it can do sata, only like 865 intel chipset. overall, i don't trust the board, and would never recommend it, never to no one. it's cool in bios for overclocking, which i'm not interested in. Not a very good motherboard.
A someone said in another review, GREAT MOTHERBOARD HANDLES FROM CELERON TO DUAL CORE, QUAD CORE AND EXTREEME PROCESSORS AND HAS OPTION TO USE DDR OR DDR2 MEMORY MODULES, AGP 8X AND PCIe GRAPHICS CARD.
I already had this board in one of my other PC's, and because of its versitility, I have problems installing it. Just hope ASROCK continues the same trend with later models.
I was looking for a MB that was versatile. I needed space for several video cards as I use 4 monitors for stock trading. This board fits the bill and I also like the idea that I can use 2 types of memory. My old board smoked so I wasn't interested in buying a bunch of upgrades. I will upgrade to DDR2 soon, but don't want to be forced to get new video cards, new CPU, and new Memory all at once. I was able to get back up with minimal outlay and room for expansion.
This is the 2nd ASRock Mobo we have purchased and though we're partial to Gigabyte Mobos, we are having good success using the ASRock Mobos. We've put them under stress along with overclocking the CPU's and are happy to say they both are performing very well. The added plus is the ease in which yuo can adjust the settings (Cmos). we're not yet sold on ASRocks but will try them again
