5 out of 5 eggs Love the Mobo 05/28/2009

This review is from: Foxconn A78AX-S AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

Was stable at default settings for me. The BIOS is very easy to navigate, and offers a good deal of options for customization. The Post screen looks cool, too. (Though that is a matter of opinion, of course.) Very compatible with my hardware. (*see other thoughts for specs.) Compatible with Windows Vista x64, and Debian 5 64-bit edition.

Cons:

Only 2 RAM Slots (but at this price, I can't complain too much). Only came with 1 SATA cable, so I had to go buy one from my local computer shop, but again, this is not a big deal. I also had a little trouble fitting the I/O panel to my case at first, but it turned out ok in the end.

Other Thoughts:

Below are my hardware/OS specs:

Mobo: Foxconn A78AX-S
Processor: AMD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz Quad-Core AMD 2+
RAM: OCZ Platnium 4GB (2x 2GB) Dual Channel 1066MHz DDR2
GPU: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 3850 512Mb
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3750330AS 750GB SATA
Optical: Samsung 22x DVD Burner (SATA)
PSU: Rosewill 600W ATX-12V PSU
OS'es: Windows Vista x64 SP1 and Debian 5 64-bit edition (dual boot)
