Most Favorable Review

Nice board, Great BIOS

Foxconn X38A LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard
Foxconn X38A LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The board post on a first try. Without overclocking it runs very stable. Easy to restore BIOS settings to default (while overclocking, board may not post if you go too far). PCI-E v2, DDR2 & DDR3 support. If correctly overclocked will run stable under correct overclock.

Cons: The BIOS manual is a joke, but who cares (if you want to tweak a BIOS you should know what are you doing.:) The only real con that I can see: No codes for debug LED (didn't try to find them, no need for me, but fore some one it may be really a big con.)

Overall Review: If you overclocking make sure to get a latest BIOS, and change PCI clock to 33 (Default is auto and it may lead you to have a very unstable system.) I have Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz -easy OC it to 3.4GHz, can go up to 3.9Ghz (I try and it works very stable under full load.) but I think it may kill my CPU and/or RAM/board in a short time: 3-18month so I step back to 3.4.)

good stuff

Pros: It's non-conductive, really lowers the temps, priced reasonably, no need to spread this paste, guaranteed for an 8 year WOW.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Just get it. GO to the Manufacturer Product Page and read the instructions BEFORE you apply this.
