Solid motherboard, what else can I say?
Only one PCIEx16 slot
No IEEE1394
Good for a budget gaming rig. I have nothing to complain about, it's rock solid in every way. It's nothing spectacular, but it's an old motherboard, so I had no expectations of grandeur. Does what I want for the right price.

Easy to overclock
Relatively cheap
Good for its price
Sometimes resets the overclocked settings after a reboot
I got this a week ago to replace a motherboard I broke. I was recommended this motherboard by the associate, and it was the right choice. This motherboard is a breeze to use and configure in the BIOS. Clear options and wide range of selections, and good thing is it supports the 45nm CPUs too. Within the first half a day, I overclocked my E7200 to 3.25GHz stable on stock volts! Now I have my system running at 3.35GHz 24/7 stable, still on stock volts. This board can go really far.

Cheap and good for OC
Gap between FSB/Multiplier setting and physical gap between DIMM slots
It's cheap. It runs stable so far. The only thing I have to complain about this board is that the gap between CPU settings is too big so I couldn't get my RAM to run at 1000MHz. I think the other thing was the physical gap between the RAM slots are too small that if your RAMs have big heatsinks, they'll rub. Otherwise a good board.

It's a Good price
IT dosen't Have Raid.
For budget gamers, this motherboard is pretty close to unbeatable. Its got all the functionnalities of high end motherboards at a low price and excellent overclocking capabilities. If you're looking for the best bang for your buck, don't look any further, it's right here

Good value for the money.
Great overclocker.
Nice board layout.
Massive Vdroop
PWM's need extra cooling.
I give this board 4 stars only because it's not a monster overcloker right out of the box. But once you update  to the F5 BIOS and slap some Enzotech RAMsinks on the Mosfets you're ready to rock and roll. Oh, and don't forget to set the "performance" option in BIOS to standard, not turbo. I've built a few rigs with this board and it can run a Q6600 at 3.6GHz no problem as long as you keep Vcore reasonable and get some airflow on the Mosfet area around the socket.

Vdroop is massive on this board, nearly 0.1v in some cases. But if you google around, you can find vdroop pencil mods that fix that right up. I used conductive ink and now the vcore actually goes up a tiny bit from idle to! I've owned all the DS3/DS3L/DS3R boards and they never disappoint. Recommended!

Overclocks nicely
didnt really like the bios
I bought this for a backup rig and it runs great. I have to a E2180 overclocked to 3.5 on a ultima 90 and it is rock stable.

I wish that the bios had been easier to navigate but one you played around with them they were ok.

Would Buy it again because it has great overclocking, plus the price is decent

-No bulky NB heatsink that blocks things
-PCI-E latch is easy to release
-Plenty of built-in USB ports
-Power saving software not very useful
-No firewire
It's an easy board to work with. The profile is actually a bit narrow so it only uses 6 screw holes in a Sonata III. I kind of like the PCI-E latch that holds onto the video card when it's inserted. It's easy to release it, unlike some other boards I had that needs a weird angle.

One thing I didn't like too much is the power saving software that came with the motherboard drivers. It supposedly throttles your CPU in order to save power, on top of the Intel built-in speedstep or C1E. The weird thing about the motherboard's software is that somehow it doesn't bring the CPU into full performance, even when it's being stressed like super-PI or 3dmark. I'm sure there are some options to tune this, but I didn't bother and I just uninstalled it.

stable, runs cool
no BIOS update for voltage upping.
stable, runs cool, enough ports. The only downside is that there is no BIOS update available yet for the voltage upping. Tried to up the voltage for to power the system but it "forgets" after I boot the system up.

*Excellent prix
Bonne marque
Inclut toutes les fonctionnalités indispensables*
*Des problèmes de vcore chez certaines personnes?*
*J'ai du acheté une carte mère pas très chère car je voulais avoir un Core2Duo E8400. J'ai donc choisis celle-ci et je ne regrette en rien mon choix car elle est très efficace.*

+ Easy setup
+ Lots of standard features
+ Low price point
- No SLi
- 1 PCI-E slot
- Cramped placement of the IDE cable (I still use it for my disk drives)
Great piece of work with lots of features, easy setup and I was able to easily overclock my Core 2 Duo E7200 and Gefore 8800GT on this with limited overclocking experience.

Comes with iBIOS software that updates the BIOS from within Windows by downloading from the internet, completely automated and painless.

It's hard to really judge a mobo, as it lacks the benchmarks and immediately noticeable improvements of a GPU or CPU, but this is a great mobo for those on a budget and I have no complaints with it.
