Willie, Aberdeen

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Feature rich with a good supply of SATA connections (6), Firewire, external SATA port. Well layed out board with plenty free space around board when cables are attached.Stable in operation.
Bad points:
The board software could be modernised away from the silly outer space, metallic theme which I think, personally, is a bit over the top. A minor observation.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent set up,with the fox one driver updates,this software utility also updated the bios without any fuss at all. pentium4 641 3.2ghz,and 1gb corsair ram,and a gforce 7300GT graphics card,has made a system i am very pleased with,great for gaming,and general computing,no problems at all.
Bad points:
upgraded my old system,only problem i found was only 1 IDE (the short blue conector )which meant i had to slave my dvd/rw drive to my old IDE western digital hard drive,which meant i had to loose my secondary cd rewriter.but plenty of sata 2 conectors which the more modern drives conect with.so beware if your conecting older drives.

Simon, Newbury

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A very good selection of features for the price. Including RAID support and FireWire. Good packaging and the usual collection of cables.
Bad points:
The board is crammed with features, but that comes at a price, complexity.

The manual is a poor translation to English. Its also only a reference manual, not a user manual.

If you don't know what the BIOS options mean, and what they do, before you start this manual will not help you. It will list the options and the available selections, which you can already see on the screen. However it won't tell you the expected effect of making changes and some are far from obvious.

As an example I couldn't find any mention that one PCI slot was disabled if both PCIE-1 and PCIE-2 slots were enabled.
