      Disadvantages

      a good board rock solid performance and reasonably price compared to other manufacturers

      Purchased the motherboard and a xp 3500 processor setup was easy on this motherboard. The first thing i noticed is the OTIS cooling no fan's on the motherboard just a heatpipe that goes from the central core of the motherboard to a bay that keeps the system cool by extracting the heat through the pipe. Very silent compared to fan systems ie northbridge fans too noisy. The audio system is realtek ac 97 chipset supporting 7.1 channel sound havent tested the 7.1 but the 5.1 senses the speakers automatically through the software and configures them easily. The abit software updates the bios automatically as the board now supports the FX series chip's. On board sata and raid with a socket 939 I have 2 1gb corsair 400 1gb sticks on dual channel and this thing speeds along. Software includes nvidia's firewall and active armour as well as your standard motherboard drivers.

      On a nforce 4 ultra chipset this is one of the most reliable boards i have ever used inside my pc's

      I paid £ 52.99 for this motherboard and it's well exceeded my expectations for speed , reliability and quietness
