Wish I could get another one ��

Miles S., Newegg
8 June 2014
  • Summary: I'm looking if anyone's got one ✌ I just remembered the MB Cmos battery registered 0 on a volt meter replaced it but still no joy. Does anyone know if the dead battery made the Cmos, Bios loose their boot info? southbound37at gmail thanks Newegg the best.
  • Pros: This is the best MB I ever had. I went to boot up last month May 2014 and all I'm getting is MB blue light, hoping it's fixable. I bought it in 2007 if I remember right and got a Artic HS a new DC 555 BE, some Gskill 800,a 900 wt CoolMax Modular PS, One of my Geforce 9800 GTXs, a few 120 mm fans,...

Still doin work after 6 years

nancy M., Newegg
14 January 2014
  • Pros: I'm a simply gamer so I didnt really do any overclocking. Just put stuff in the board and let it do its thing. Still churning through games after over 6 years. What can I say? No problems either.
  • Cons: Colors dont match? Sucks with SSDs?

Good for 3 years, then died...

Michael L., Newegg
24 November 2011
  • Summary: I will never get another Foxconn product again. It seemed cool and solid at the time, but it rapidly wore out from just basic use.
  • Pros: This WAS a pretty good mid-budget board when I got it about 3 years ago. No problems right away. The board is large and spacious enough for plenty of large video cards. It ran fairly stable for a while. Nothing flashy, but it got the job done...
  • Cons: ...until now. After about a year, I was having problems with the board's BIOS booting from a cold start. It took about 5 or 6 tries, but it would eventually start. It became more frequent as time went on. As 11/23/11, the board I've had for 3 years is now completely non-functional. Other cons: th...

Foxconn Destroyer NVIDIA nForce 780a Motherboard

James H., Newegg
1 April 2010
  • Summary: I would not be reluctant to purchase another high end Foxconn mainboard.
  • Pros: Overall a quick motherboard and component installation. Plenty of USB board headers as well as on the back of the I/O panel. Front audio header is located at the bottom of the mainboard in the middle unlike many boards where it is located in the lower left corner. The Destroyer has plenty of case...
  • Cons: Somewhat limited choice of DDR2 memory both in choice of brands as well as system memory speed. The owners manual with the installation intructions has the front panel (power switch, reset switch, hdd led, power led) reversed. I followed the manual- I could not start the power process. I was able...

Anonymous, Newegg
23 March 2010
  • Summary: AMD 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4ghz (OC ed 4.2 on air) Foxconn Destroyer MOBO G.skill DDR2 1066 8gb ram 2 ECS NGTS250-512QX-F geforce GTS 250 512mb (SLI) 2 WD Black 1 tb 1 WD Black 750 gb XCLIO Windtunnel tower Tuniq CR-pro120-BK CPU cooler Windows 7
  • Pros: I like the bios of the board after the update. It is really a pain to update but once it is done you will be happy with the results. Very easy to OC the system
  • Cons: The mobo likes to run a little warm with out overclocking it. With the CPU at 3.4ghz 1.3420 volts the mobo will run around 40C with it OC ed to 4.2ghz 1.5200volts mobo runs around 35C CPU at 29C air cooled and stable. It is loosing one egg just b/c the update is such a pain. Foxconn needs to do a...

The DESTROYER of all motherboards

James C., Newegg
21 March 2010
  • Summary: Has anyone had any luck with memory other than g.skill with this board. I want to upgrade and would love to put some ocz or mushkin
  • Pros: Best am2 motherboard out there. Even tho am3 is out it still is better than 90% of them. You get so much stuff with it. If you are building a gaming system then this is the board
  • Cons: I dare you to put a con. I call the boys and we will bring our ships and DESTROY all of your con's.

help with problem

James C., Newegg
21 March 2010
  • Summary: Does anybody know if this would support ddr3. I don't think so but tried tech support and no answer maybe this was a to stupid ? sorry if it was
  • Pros: Love the board. It is very upgradable with 4 Pci xpress Alot of thought went into this board.If your going to just use air cooling go with 120 or 140mm fans because the cooler this board is the better. With the capability of 3 sli's you will need alot of cooling as possible. Very stable with a 93...
  • Cons: I wish that the north bridge had a fan for cooling possible that it dos'nt get that hot but i'm a firm believer in a cool system. Wish it supported more than 8 gig. I don't like that it has a plce for a floppy. But all of this isn't a con just a I wish it didn't have comment. Haha

Hardware awesome. Software bad. Not much tech support.

Edwin M., Newegg
11 March 2010
  • Summary: WinXP Pro SP3 Phenom II 940 BE up to 3.4GHz, so far 2x2GB OCZ Reaper DDR2 800 @ 4-4-4-15 BFG GTX 280 OC 1680x1050 monitor resolution BIOS ver P14
  • Pros: Awesome hardware. I owned a Foxconn 8800GTS OC before and found it reliable. Great BIOS options. Some nice bonuses like an extra fan for blowing over GPU and heatpipe extension for motherboard chipset.
  • Cons: Aegis Panel monitor and overclock utility often crashes system when launching. When it doesn't, the app itself "encounters a problem" although you can set a blind eye to that message and still use it, which I must b/c I have to lower my noisy case fan speeds. SpeedFan won't adjust the speeds. Con...

Great Mobo, Funny Extras

David K., Newegg
20 February 2010
  • Summary: This mobo also came with a set of dog tags, enough sticker to decorate my car bumper and about 10 of those stick on tattooes. Although this was great for laughing it, it was really pointless.
  • Pros: This motherboard worked out of the box and came well documented and with any accessories I might need. It also came with a couple extra and nice accessories such as an additional fan and mounting bracket for cooling GPU's. There was also a heatsink expander for the southbridge heatsink and an opt...
  • Cons: None yet.

Foxconn Destroyer review

Alan K., Newegg
15 February 2010
  • Summary: Phenom II X4 940 cpu, OCZ Platinum 1066 mhz DDR2 SDRAM, Zalman CNPS 9700 NT cpu cooler, EVGA 01G-P3-1284-AR GTX 280 (pair in SLI), Western Digital Caviar 500 gb, Corsair 1000HX 1000-watt power supply, Windows 7 x64 Home Premium (formerly Vista x64 Home Premium), ABS Canyon 695 full tower case with...
  • Pros: I've been using this board since January 2009 without problems. Nice layout and BIOS features for overclocking the cpu. Originally used an AMD Phenom X4 9950 BE, but later installed an AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.0 ghz and overclocked it to 3.6 ghz. Easy to adjust voltages for cpu and DDR2 SDRAM. Boar...
  • Cons: BIOS and mobo has feature to store different configurations for overclocking, but unless you write it down there is no way to designate the configurations other than by Slot number. Minor issue with cold bootup - sometimes must try several times before SDRAM red LED on board lights up (will not b...
