1 out of 5 eggsNo Bios Updates

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: No working software support. Bios becomes unable to be updated thus making it unable to run Ivy bridge (even though there was a bios update to allow it) because the software does not recognize any updates.

Other Thoughts: Would have been a 3-5 egg rating if they had updated their Fox live software to actually work .

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsSupport utilities do not work

Pros: It runs.

Cons: I've had this motherboard running since 4/15/2012, but not once has the software Foxconn provides worked outside of the initial bios install.

Fox live update, the program that is supposed to update the boards bios and drivers has never worked.

There have been a handful of bios updates for this board that I have not been able to install using the software provided.
My system bios release date also does not match any bios updates the foxconn website has listed for the motherboard.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
Sorry for the inconvenience.
We will feedback your issue to our correlative department.If possible we recommend you flash bios in DOS mode.Thank you.
Any other query in the future, please contact us freely.

4 out of 5 eggsLess expensive option, but not cheap

Pros: I've been using this board for over a year now. I use it with my Intel i7 Sandy Bridge and GTX570, and it's has performed great.

Cons: Board is pretty thin, always worries me when I'm working on it.

Other Thoughts: The board is great, and the only reason I need to upgrade is because it only comes with 1 PCI-E slot. Not docking an egg for that though, that's more of a preference issue.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA`d replacement DOA

Pros: Nice looking board

Cons: MTF >5 minutes

Other Thoughts: This replaced #1 because 2 of 3 PCI ports didn't work & lost track of drives when booting, reporting could not find the drive it was booting from.
This board, #2, fired up, posted, went into BIOS set-up where I set optimized settings and selected PCIe graphics adapter, when it reset it failed to post. Cleared CMOS and still failed to post.

5 out of 5 eggsA year in now

Pros: Great first Intel board for me. I have owned multiple Foxconn mb's for amd and never had a bad board. This board has been perfect for my need's without a hiccup or stutter in a year.

Cons: I read the overclocking isnt great on this board, I dont have an ocing chip this time but that also prevents me from upgrading to one.

Other Thoughts: I like this board, I took a gamble on it but I believe in Foxconn products. If you need a simple affordable board it's def worth a try.

2 out of 5 eggsMobo seems fine; Bug disallows use of sata cards.

Pros: Board seems to work, has a decent feature set.

Cons: Will not work with SATA cards, 3 different cards, 2 different brands in any slot, with any number of drives. Hangs during POST when it's scanning for additional boot devices. No option to turn off SATA card boot devices in menus.

Other Thoughts: It's cheap, and everyone has different needs. Just think about if you'll ever actually use a sata card.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed to boot,

Pros: Nice price for specs, nice looking board. Fit and finish nice.

Cons: Failed to consistently identify and remember drives attached at boot, 2 of 3 PCI slots did not work, never successfully booted, closest it got was hanging because it could not find the HD it was was booting from. Quick guide was useful but manual (PDF on CD) lacked information in depth. Semi-con: No floppy connection on this model

Other Thoughts: This along with new CPU/memory was to replace an aging Gigbyte mainboad/Pentium D950 on a dual boot legacy 32 bit system. My last two builds used Foxconn/AMD mainboards with success, this was a disappointment. Waiting to see if Foxconn tech support can come up with something.

2 out of 5 eggsAnother one dead

Pros: I have two of these boards, they are an amazingly designed budget board if you are looking to do a cheap build. Everything is well placed on the board. Easy to set up everything you need.

Cons: This is the second board I have gone through both of them dead, first one was dead within a few months and now this one was DOA. Very dissapointed.

Other Thoughts: I was very pleased with the board and the company until now, after buying two of these motherboards and both of them no longer working, I highly doubt I will make another purchase from foxconn and will stick to the main competitors.
