Nice Board!!!

Strengths: Good layout, Creative Sound Blaster Live, Lots of expansion ports

Weakness: Not as overlookable as the ASUS or DFI SLI x16 boards.

One MSI’s best boards ever! I bought and ASUS board previously and decided to switch because I wasn't happy with the layout of there socket 939 x 16 board. The MSI K8N Diamond Plus comes with an abundant of features that weren’t found on any other board. I think this was good choice although I’ve never owned a MSI board.

Strengths: heatsink pipe for B(N&S) sharing one fan

Weakness: remove that big parallel port, replace it with newer stuff no one uses that anymore.

very stable with a dual core 3800 easy to o'clk, runs very strong. Will add a second 7600 gt when the budget is right. Overall great board . I noticed the heatsink fan speed is~5000 rpm and quiet.

MSI diamond plus

Strengths: Heatsink/pipe, Overclockable, SATA 1 and 2, Creative sound.

Weakness: Heatsink location, 2nd PCI-E slot too close to PCI.

Even with the heatsink/pipe on this board for the NB and SB I think...

Another great MSI board

Strengths: Heatsink with a pipe for the NB and SB, big, accessories. Overclockable.

Weakness: 300Mhz is the limit for overclocking. Location of the SB heatsink.

I like this board a lot, keeping the north bridge and the south bridge nice and cool is a great thing, specially if you will be overclocking. I just don't like where the SB heatsink is located. It can interfere with a large CPU heatsink or a large video card such as the Asus quad card. So to be on the safe side I bought the evga's 256 P2N527AX. With that graphics card there is still enough room...
