    This is a sweet mobo. For its price it is feature rich and the IGP can actually get away with light gaming @ 800 x 600 and sometimes 1024 x 768. O/C is simple in the bios with variious pre set configs that do the mem timings and what not automatically. Once i get a better HSF I intend to O/C higher and at some point drop in a X4 620 or Phenom II. All in all I feel it was money well spent and a good investment as a 24/7 crunching rig.

    I've put a few builds together with ASRock boards recently, usually the A785GMH or GXH for AMD builds, and I've been very impressed with them.

    For the money, they really are solid boards.

    I've owned a x58 and still have a p55 Asrock board. They are very solid. Not a problem with either of them.

    i had an old asrock mobo with an AMD Athlon 3800 dual core, i sold it maybe 2 years ago to my good friend, its still working good for him no probs at all.
    I bought it at the time because i was still using AGP graphics cards and coulden't afford a hole new setup. i love the way they mix stuff up to, such as suporting the AM2 dual cores and DDR2 ram but still having AGP, the old ATI X1950 still plays his games good to with nice frame rates.
    AlienIsGOD says thanks.

    My P45Xe is going strong and haven't had any problems since I bought it a year ago, a very good motherboard.
