Foxconn's A78AX-S ATX motherboard delivers powerful, affordable performance. Based on AMD's 770 and SB700 chipsets, it is ideal for the home or business user who relies on top video performance. Certified for Windows Vista, it supports AMD's AM2+ and AM2 Phenom multi-core processors as well as all other socket AM2 CPUs including Athlon 64 X2 and Sempron chips. Up to 4GB of DDR2 memory can be installed with dual channel support to power through complex operations and 2600 MHz Hyper Transport technology massively increases the CPU bandwidth at lower power levels for cooler operation.

The PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot supports double wide graphic cards and the two PCIe and three PCI slots offer extra options. And, because beautiful graphics are meaningless without sound, the onboard Realtek ALC888SDD chipset delivers 8 channels of theater-quality audio. Connect up to four SATA devices for high-speed data transfer rates along with the option of RAID configuration. Integrated Gigabit Ethernet LAN lets you connect to other systems on your network at broadband speeds.

  • newegg AMD K10 Processor Support The Foxconn A78AX-S supports AM2 AMD processors including the Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64, Athlon FX and Sempron series as well as the latest AM2+ K10 AMD processors.
  • newegg SATA 3Gb/s with RAID Support The revolutionary Serial ATA interface provides scalable performance for storage devices. SATA technology enables easy-to-install, high-performance and low-power hard drives. Six 3Gb/s SATA ports support RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 10 for better performance and/or data security.
  • newegg PCI Express 2.0 Interface The PCI-Express 2.0 interface provides twice the bandwidth of PCI-Express X16 to handle the data load of next-generation graphics cards while retaining compatibility with current PCI-Express cards.
  • newegg Gigabit Ethernet Connectivity The Foxconn A78AX-S features a fast Gigabit network interface for high-speed LAN connections at up to 1000Mbps data transfer rates with advanced security features to ward off malicious attacks.

5 out of 5 eggsstable and running a WHS

Pros: It just works.

Cons: Not a high end board for people hot rodding thier systems, and no built in video which would have been nice for a WHS server system while setting up.

Other Thoughts: I got this to replace a motherboard having issues on my WHS. Its stable and running 24/7 for over a month now.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for XP or Linux

Pros: Inexpensive, Linux support, decent performance, complete package.

Cons: Nothing special. Only 2 memory connectors.

Other Thoughts: Easy setup as replacement for older broken hardware. This was a cheap quick fix when an older main-board bit the dust.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap Board

Pros: Low price

Cons: This board is a gamble, there is no guarantee that the one that ships to you will work. The first one i got was DOA as was the replacement. If you decide on this board add in the price of shipping it to Newegg for a replacement, as you will probably need to RMA it.

Other Thoughts: If you need a cheap board and are lucky, you can try this one, but fairly shoddy workmanship make this a risky purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsGood bang for buck

Pros: Easy install. No problems whatsoever. One of the more problem free builds I have had. Doesn't have all bells and whistles, but for a basic build, works as it should

Cons: 4 GB max memory

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent budget.

Pros: Cheap.
Reliable.
AM3 compatible with BIOS update.

Cons: Doesn't fit a 1366 socket cpu or cure foot odor.

Other Thoughts: Yes, you read correctly. This board is capable of AM3 support with a BIOS update and at this price that's a steal.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good.....but....

Pros: Cheep....cheep...
Works,
cheep....cheep
No complaints. But it is a tad slow on post (getting BIOS loaded)
For the money, seems to be a pretty darn good deal.
Got it up and running smooth with very little effort.
Would buy another.

Cons: A little slow on initial BIOS loading

Will it last? Time will tell.

Other Thoughts: I see quite a few complaints but in my opinion, many of those are probably the result of someone who believes they are good at building computers when in reality, they could use a bit of help. I think it's probably the same people who get all the "bad" boards....because the boards weren't really bad. That or else Newegg just like me and always sends me good stuff ? I don't think that's it. Really. It is VERY easy to get something wrong when installing a motheroard.

1 out of 5 eggsBe Careful

Pros: Low cost lots of features

Cons: at 1 year old audio went out, last month after owning 1 year and 5 months board dies completely, it crow-bars the power supply. Probably related to the audio going out a few months back. At that time I just disable on-board audio and plugged in a spare audio card I had. Didn't expect it to short circuit the board.

Other Thoughts: It's almost always better to pay a little more to get quality components on the board.

4 out of 5 eggsno video O.o

Pros: price for a full atx that will support my amd athlon x2 64 3.0 windsor engine

Cons: no onboard video( for dual monitor purposes) pwr swch, reset, hdd led pins, all that are kinda loose, pain to connect if hdd are installed in my case, but thats a case issue :/

Other Thoughts: no video on an older pny 64mb pci video card, does it default to pcie 16? not too big of an issue since i just bout a pcie 16 vid card yesterday from here, but i kinda wanted a computer now. also for some reason it would turn itself of before i pressed the pwr button, kinda like it had no cpu, took the cpu out, put it back in, now its waiting for me to start it up like normal, hopefully not an issue. 4 eggs for no pci vid card support that i am aware of, will give 5 if i figure it out
