Final Thoughts

Conclusions:

This motherboard was easy to work with, it came with two extra USB ports (whereas most manufacturers screw you over and don't ship the ports with the motherboard,) and they packaged in a free anti-virus program.  Furthermore, motherboard had decent memory scores (considering that this is a VIA 133Z chipset,) overclocking worked like a charm, and the sytem remained stable.

There are several design gaffes, that I have previously mentioned, however they do not detract from the overall quality of the CUV4X.  The only real problem with this motherboard, is that the VIA 133 chipsets have finally found a contender with the Intel name behind it, the i815E chipset motherboards while more expensive, do carry a lot more clout, simply because of the Intel name behind it.

Disregarding the i815E chipset, and focussing on the CUV4X alone, shows how a great manufacturer of motherboards like Asus, can make a third party chipset appear to be just as, or even greater than their Intel counterparts.  So if you are upgrading to a FC-PGA system soon, give the CUV4X a look, as it gets rid of the pesky Slotket adapters, and provides good overclocking options coupled with STABILITY.
