Motherboard

Seth R., Newegg
6 March 2013
  • Summary: Unless you already have the AM3 processor, you have no reason to buy this. They've got newer ones out there that are backwards compatible anyway. After research on date posted, AM3+ or FM2 are the way to go, am3+ for CPU or if you want to get an APU (much more complicated and not necessarily worth...
  • Pros: Is motherboard.
  • Cons: Is Foxconn. Also, outdated.

Re-evaluation

PETER B., Newegg
26 February 2013
  • Pros: Replacement MOBO installed easily -- looks great. Foxconn tech support (Rick) was very helpful answering some questions I had. Everything is functioning well.
  • Cons: It would be helpful if Foxconn included a troubleshooting sheet covering: proper CMOS jumper setting, more thorough explanation of MOBO board connectors, tech support contact info, etc.

Pretty -- but DOA

PETER B., Newegg
11 February 2013
  • Pros: Simple instructions are clear.
  • Cons: Power would not latch "on" when front "on" switch was depressed. Shorting the corresponding pinds on the board didn't help. MOBO needs to be replaced. Rating will go up if I get a working MOBO.

Not Windows 8 applicable.

JAMES J., Newegg
20 December 2012
  • Summary: If it wasn't for my hdd running win8 I would have been able to use this and I am sure I would have gotten a lot of use out of it as an interim mobo.
  • Pros: Well it looks nice, had a good design, worked in a general fashion and could get to bios without problem.
  • Cons: It just doesn't work with Windows 8, not that it claimed too merely an error on my behalf.

mediocre product

Korrey M., Newegg
28 October 2012
  • Summary: I'd consider buying another one of these motherboards if I needed a cheap office computer that didn't need to do anything exotic.
  • Pros: Booted up without issue on the first try after installation. Hasn't given me any considerable problems so far.
  • Cons: I bought this motherboard as a gift for a friend, but only after I got it did I find out it only supported 95W CPUs. This made it useless since his CPU was a Phenom II 945 and pulling 125W. We tested it anyway, and while it worked, the VRMs would overheat when the CPU was under load and the mothe...

So far worth the money

Leslie D., Newegg
20 July 2012
  • Pros: Good cheap Motherboard
  • Cons: I only wrote this review to let everybody know this foxconn mobo dosn't come with the power adapter for sata. Its one on the reasons that I have consistently bought foxconn. They used to all come with a sata power adapter. That little adapter pushed me over the edge making me feel that Foxconn ca...

Stable

Austin T., Newegg
18 July 2012
  • Summary: Foxconn seems like a real stable brand. Might buy from again.
  • Pros: Stable- Hasn't ever crashed on me. CPU- Good CPU suppporting Cooling- Overall the motherboard stays real cool Lots of USB ports
  • Cons: Northbride Heatsink gets real hot. Bios can get confusing. I don't know if this was a hardware issue or what but when my DVD drive broke and I removed it the motherboard would take 1-5 minutes just to reconize the HDD, which was really annoying, and when I added my replacememt DVD drive it booted...
