Techspot has made a review of FIC's VC19 Advanced Intel i845e motherboard :
Let’s just cut to the chase here, and get to the bottom line. The FIC VC19 Advance can be found for about $120 shipped. This price includes 5.1 sound, Hotpoint RAID controller, USB 2.0, and on-board LAN! This is an incredible price, and is the basis on why someone would purchase this board.

I had absolutely no stability problems and was completely satisfied with this board, except for one thing. The lack of overclocking features does rattle my cage a bit. The core voltage is not the big deal since it can be hacked with a jumper, but the front side bus selection is horrible, and lack of voltage adjustment features for AGP and RAM are missing also. Now this is a problem for me because I do in fact overclock my processors, do you? Well, that’s the question you need to ask yourself when looking for an i845 motherboard
