5 out of 5 eggs Asus board in red dress 08/10/2009

This review is from: Foxconn ELA LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Price! Talk about bang for your buck.... The board has a lot in common with other Asus boards, but unfortunately not the same bios. Everything else with the board has been fantastic for the price. People need to keep in mind what they are getting for their money here. This board is worth double the asking price. I purchased this board for a dedicated folding rig (Folding@home) and have 3 9800GTs and an E8400 folding wide open 24/7. Overall this board gets a 4.9 of 5 (in its price point) with bios being the only real weakness.

Cons:

Bios settings are not for the novice or faint of heart. Also no listing in the user guide or their website to explain what the bios LED codes mean. Website is weak. Last con is ignorant people using products they don't understand or know how to update and then blame the hardware.

Other Thoughts:

People need to stop comparing this to a $300 board. Apples to apples you won't find a better board with more to offer. People also need to make sure they update all the software on the board as soon as it's installed. You need a clean OS and then run the built-in live update tool from Foxconn. It worked great and updated ALL software making the system rock solid ever since.
