Pros
Lots of features onboard
Cons
Poorly placed IDE connector
Limited DDR3 memory slots
Unstable BIOS
Summary
What a disappointment. If you have 1 or more IDE devices, the cable provided by ASUS is too short (the connector is on the wrong side of the board). If you're upgrading with existing DDR2 memroy there are 4 slots available, but if using DDR3 only 2 slots. The BIOS frequently hangs during a restart and requires turning off the power at the power supply before it works.

Pros
Great Features for a low price. Hardware Compatibility is great
Cons
The Asus Bios update for this board will ruin your day...your month...your year...Yarr ASUS released a terrible Bios update DO NOT USE IT
Summary
I have been very very happy with this board since purchase it has taken everything I have thrown at it. The price VS Features and compatibility is untouchable, however with DDR3 proving so far to be a waste of cash, and this boards horrendous reviews and support issues on the ASUS Forum mostly all to do with BIOS updates causing boot and post issues I now hold a bias against this board because I have had to send it away while my PC is bricked. I would recommend spending a little more if you can on a ASUS board with the X38 chipset and forget about DDR3. Also the Board claims to have DDR2 1066 support out of the box but I have found no one who has had success with this.

Experience: 3 Weeks
Pros
Lots of upgrade capability
Supports DDR2 & DDR3

Cons
Very crowded due to so many slots/ports
Summary
Overall this is an awesome board. A lot of people complained about the IDE port being in a remote location, but I have no plans of using IDE devices so this is a moot point for me. Depending on your set up, cable management may be quite a chore. I have only begun to play with over-clocking and it seems to get a little hot so good cooling & air flow are a must.

Pros
Excellent all around board
Cons
location of the IDE connection in a far off spot
Summary
although IDE connection isn't used as much anymore, I found myself using this one for multiple HDD and optical drives First ASUS product purchased, but will definately keep them in mind for next mobo

Pros
good price, good features for the price, DDR3 support
Cons
some RAM overclocking issues. No eSATA.
Summary
Overall I'd say this a good motherboard for the price. It's got good features for overclocking and has a simple layout. DDR3 support is a plus however I have yet to test DDR3 RAM with this mobo. One problem I've been having though is that I've tried 3 different sets of PC2-8500 ram and can't get any stable overclocks with the RAM set to anything over 800MHz. This may be an error on my part but my last motherboard using the same ram could overclock my ram to 1200MHz. This isn't a big deal though and I'm happy with my purchase.

Pros
Asus brand
Good Board
Cons
False Advertising
Horrid Support
Summary
I bought this motherboard because it could support 1066 DDR2 and 3 ram when the time came to change. I also got 2x1gb OCZ 1066 Mhz ram sticks and the motherboard does not boot when the bios is set to 1067.... It only boots at 834 Mhz but unstable running at 800Mhz now until bios update ... WORST MOTHERBOARD I have owned. Stay Clear.

Pros
support DDR2 and DDR3
good price and very cool
Cons
needs better cooling if planning on overclocking
Summary
as expected it runs very well and cool as most asus boards. i love how it there is future support by having DDR2 and DDR3 ram slots, however if u plan on overclocking this motherboard can get quite hot

Experience: 5 Days
Pros
User-friendly
Great bios for over-clocking enthusiasts
DDR3 and 45 nm CPU support
Cons
Lone IDE connection is under the PCI slots (lower left hand corner of the board), requires a long IDE cable for use with older CD Rom drives. Should be where the Floppy IDE controller is located (bottom right hand corner of the board).
Missing PS/2 port. Asus did leave the Keyboard port.
"Native" ***1066 Mhz DDR2 ram support really only works with very few makes of Ram (per the QVR list on the ASUS site), my PC 8500 ram will not run at full speed on this board.
Summary
This is a great board for the price, DDR 3 support also helps for future memory upgrades. Bios works great and computer performance is spectacular with this board, along with lots of timing values that can be changed if options are enabled/unlocked for the over-clocker in you, easy to get lost in all the options:)

Pros
- lots of USB ports
- supports DDR2 as well as DDR3 for future RAM
- easy to install
- SLI compatible
- AI software nice feature
Cons
- no RAID support
- IDE and floppy connections are located on the bottom edge of the board.. may be a problem for some users (easily solved by using rounded 36" cables.
Summary
Purchased in [09-09-07] for $163.99.
In order to enable the IDE connection on the board, you must enter the bios and 'enable' the j micron feature (PATA, RAID, etc. )

I purchased a rounded 36" IDE cable to use with a cd burner and a ide hard drive. Have it installed inside a Coolermaster stacker 832 and there is plenty of cable to reach the top 5.25 " bays.

Asus quality, ddr2 and ddr3 support
Cons
Too much on one board
Summary
Got this for my first core 2 duo build, and the thing showed nice results. The thing offers choice and connectivity. Seemed to do well at overclocking too. Good all around board.
