Re; Foxconn H61 AP/1155 M/B.

clayton Carter, Amazon

  • Summary: Haven't installed it yet but this is not the first Foxconn M/B for me. In fact I am running theG31 AX on another computer right now. Absolutely no problem. Easy to work with and I like those extra slots to "stick in" thos extra pieces. I will continue to buy them and would recommend them.

User Review

Phillip B., Newegg

  • Summary: Navigating their support site is horrendous. I know next time to avoid buying for value, and buy for quality.
  • Pros: No pros to see since computer's not running.
  • Cons: no manual shipped with mobo. false advertising ("yea, sure, we support Ivy Bridge CPUs too! (you just wont realize you need to use a Sandy Bridge cpu to update it to USE the Ivy Bridge CPU, sucker!)") having to wait who knows how long for them to ship me a replacement chip after requesting one

PCI max power output 10W

Simon B., Newegg
19 March 2013
  • Summary: foxconn support team was good
  • Pros: cheap cost.
  • Cons: We have bought this motherboard because it was the only one with many PCI slot. But, we weren't able to use it because the maximum output power for all the 6 PCI slot is 10W. We have contacted Foxconn to be sure, and that's the final answer we got. When we start the computer sometimes the PCI cards are seen by the device manager, and sometimes not. It's really frustrating to see that the only motherboard with that much slot isn't able to do the work.

LPT Port

Mr. R., Newegg
12 March 2013
  • Pros: This board fired right up with G860 Sandy Bridge and Ripjaws F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL. I needed on board parallel port for expensive Legacy Software with HASP key protection. Worked fine
  • Cons: No floppy drive connection but plenty of USB headers

  • Cons: apparently i need a bios upgrade on power up the fans spin for a second, then back off. this repeats over and over never fully powering up. i bought an ivy bridge cpu and cannot get it up in order to do the upgrade

Quirky Board

Michael F., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: If I could get the newest bios for this that would support the processor that I originally intended to put into the machine, and if the new bios had more features for compatibility this would be an awesome motherboard for older medical / manufacturing hardware
  • Pros: High number of PCI slots for older device support on newer electronics and serial and parallel ports giving the ability to attach devices that are not made in USB variants reliably
  • Cons: Bios on motherboard was severely outdated, to upgrade it you need to request a new physical chip from the manufacturer. I sent an e-mail 10 days ago and still have not received a reply. I mainly work nights, so calling their phone number during the day is a real hassle. The shipped bios has several limiting factors that make full backwards compatibility a pipe dream (such as disabling ACPI or doing compatibility mode on all of the sata ports)

Cheap and works.

R2the3rd, Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: I needed to build a NAS4Free system on a shoe string budget and I was able to pull it off with this mobo. My only complaints are that if there are more than 3 devices plugged into the board (PCI / PCI-E) I get a LEGACY OP ROM SPACE ERROR and no amount of disabling BIOS items or tinkering with the SATA cards would free up enough BIOS ROM to make the error go away.

Great for the buck

wesley D., Newegg
22 October 2012
  • Summary: For the price, this is a fantastic buy
  • Pros: Cheap Easy to setup Worked first time out of packaging Installation CD is setup to make driver installation easy
  • Cons: The only possible con I can find is that instructions for mobo is only 1 giant page in multiple languages. This might make it confusing for amateur computer builders but for veterans it is actually easy.
