This review is from: Foxconn H81MXV LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Cons: Few Bios options,
poor ACPI support,
poor End User support,
Cheaper components used in build
Other Thoughts: Building a workstation for home use and found this board to have the minimum specs needed. (PCIE 16 + 1, SATA 6 gb, USB 3, Haswell) System built and running for over a month now and a few issues have come up.
1) Drivers and support are nill. Website is slow, difficult to navigate and has little support content. (Manual, drivers) You don't get a manual with this board! Unheard of!
2)Poor ACPI implementation. Only support for S3 mode. No G2 or G3 customizabiltity. Good for a server or commercial box but bad for home box when you want a soft reset or hard reset. (Select shutdown in windows and it will suspend to ram / disk instead) There's no way to change this. You will have to hold power button for 5 sec or power off at PSU, yourself. PIA since my tower is hidden inside a desk.
3) No video select option. If a video card is installed in the 16x slot it will only initiate from that card on startup. You can not select the onboard APU as default. I originally wanted 2 monitor setup in extension mode and to use the GPU as essentially a 3D accelerator in the 16x slot while the 4600 APU delivered the default screen. Bought all the cabling for this and had to alter the configuration because the board didn't allow it and there's no option to change it. I did get my 2 monitor setup but with my GPU as default and APU as secondary which works in windows only! (On any other state the 2nd screen is blank)
If you don't plan on turning the PC off all that much or fiddling with your configuration this is a great board to get a haswell for dirt cheap. If you want more flexibility and more options and possibly better longevity look elsewhere.
