PCShopTalk review the ASRock P45DE Motherboard, a reasonable product but it lags behind others in speed and has a few compatibility problems:\n \n[QUOTE]I had some issues with the VIA audio drivers functionality in Windows Xp : when the CPU load was a little high, I could hear sound clicks/drops; to see if this is a hardware problem, or a software problem, I have ran also Windows 7, Build 7124. Here, all the suspect sounds were gone, even at high CPU loads. I am waiting, though for VIA to make the HD Deck application fully compatible with Windows 7, because the drivers installation worked only if I put the Windows Vista compatibility mode, and HD Deck was crashing when I wanted to enter Expert mode in the interface. This audio problem is not ASRock motherboard related, it seems VIA has to fix the problem in the near future.[/QUOTE]\n \nRead the review [URL="http://www.pcshoptalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16242"]here[/URL].
