After having almost every motherboard manufacturer (Abit, Asus, Gigabyte, FIC, Biostar, Epox, and Intel) I have finally found the only motherboard that worked properly. My Intel D865PERLL has ended a couple year problem that has given me mobo-phobia. Not only does it actually work it is reliable, fast, and booted up on the first try (Disproving Murphy's Law)... If you are getting a new P4 motherboard definently consider Intel.

I'll be glad to list them all:

Abit - broke and made a static noise even with my SC, switch them, got Xp, and then gave it to my freind and it wouldn't even load the OS

Asus - Underclocked my good ol' AMD Athlon 1.2ghz to 818mhz and wouldn't raise, then wouldn't load OS

Biostar - One completely wouldn't work, the other would lock up every 2 seconds

Gigabyte - Also underclocked my CPU's and then finally broke

FIC - Wouldn't do Windows Updates

Epox - Randomly shut off lots of times.

Intel - 1 Month and no problems yet... Lets cross our fingers

You didn't mention MSI. . .

My 875P mobo has worked fine, EXCEPT. . .

There is a known issue where SATA drive activity does not light the case HDD activity light. Only IDE drives work with it, which sucks because all I have are Serai ATA drives. A minor annoyance, otherwise it works great.

How can I mention MSI when I never owned one? I don't like MSI either way because a MSI CD-ROM Drive broke. Think how much I would want an MSI motherboard when their CD-ROM's don't even work properly :?

I'll consider them when they finally give me my goddamn 266Mhz and 300Mhz Tillamook in a socket 7 flavor. Or maybe a 512K Tualatin that's FC-PGA compatible. BLARG.

Or maybe some Pentium 4's and Pentium M's that will run on dual processor boards.

Have you considered trying a different power supply or RAM in your system, assuming you used the same ones with each of the systems (or most of them) mentined above?

That'd cause some major unstability with any brand of motherboard. It could be that the one particular board you are using is more tolerant to bad ram or power. Just an idea.
