1 out of 5 eggs FoxGarbage 05/02/2011

This review is from: Foxconn FlamingBlade LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: My computer has been able to turn on since I've had this board.

Cons: This company is terrible. Their website barely functions, and their utilities are still outdated (no windows 7). I tried using *THEIR* update utility today to update my BIOS (in hopes of some issues being resolved, and the ability to overclock) but no luck. My mobo is bricked now, and they basically did it. It was their utility. Unbelievable. I tried removing the battery etc., and nothing. I didn't dare try overclocking it, given how unstabl it was from day 1, but someday I would like to overclock - this is why I'm sticking with ASUS From now on, and you all should do the same. I've heard success stories about OC'ing with this board, but I think Foxconn wrote the stories. I will never buy anything from foxconn again - unless they want to replace my bricked board (so I can get back to my job, school, and gaming) with an updated, FUNCTIONING board, I will continue to spread this message everywhere that I can. 0/5 eggs. Do yourself a favor, reader, and avoid FC like the plague

Pros: When it works, it works great.

Cons: In the mail for RMA now. Also couldn't figure out what kind of HDMI cable goes with the mini displayport to HDMI. It's not like most HDMI cables, and unfortunately I learned this after buying the cable.

Other Thoughts: Just want to hook it up to the HDMI port in my TV when it returns in the mail. Need to know what kind of cable that is first, though.
