It outperforms many other K8T800 boards which are much more expensive. It´s stable as a rock, easy to install, great bios - with many tweak options, and good overclocking possibilities. Great memory support, it isn´t necessary to buy class A memory, less can do it - allthought the better the memory the better the perfomance overall. It has silenttek which is a great utility if you´re not using the full potential of the cpu, it simply can make the machine silent most of the time, changing the rpm of the cpu fan. This board also supports Cool ´n Quiet technologi, but since the board is designed before the Cool ´n Quiet technologi was, it only supports it with one memory module in bank 1. Besides that, silentek does the job. I´m enjoying surfing the web with a quiet computer.
