I beg your pardon dude!!!
But, I have owned a couple of these MoBos in the past 7 + years and the only problem I have had, was that the Caps alonge side of the CPU had exploded, due to lack of POWER SUPPLY. So I installled another one of these MoBos and changed out the 300watt supply to a 500 watt power supply and all has been great since.
So, please don't be slandering this " Old Grey Mear " as you call it.
