1 out of 5 eggs Great while it lasted 07/08/2013

This review is from: Foxconn A88GMV AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Cost

Cons: Reliability
Connection placement

Other Thoughts: I have had this for almost a year and recently had problems with HSTFE (hypersync Transport Flood Error's.

The possible solutions are: Check HT speed and make sure it is slower than all other speeds and check voltages... or New Motherboard, New CPU, NEW RAM, New power supply.

Iv installed a new power supply, new RAM, New CPU, checked all BIOS settings and nothing worked. I started watching Motherboard components and noticed that the NB is getting extremely hot when the HSTFE happens. I tried underclocking the entire rig to cool it town, nothing. Figured why not try everything while im at it, overclocked 5% and NB was still way too hot. Took it back to stock and got the computer limping along enough to order a better motherboard!

Should have learned from my first Foxconn Mobo that just fell apart! This was the last board I would ever buy from Foxconn.

LOGISYS Computer PS600XBK 600W ATX12V SLI Ready Power Supply Black w/ 120mm Ball Bearing Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: *Cheap
*Nice paint and finish

Cons: Lasted 4 months before it just randomly shutdown and would not turn back on. Tested different cable, different motherboard, and load tester with no signs of life.

Other Thoughts: Thinking of RMA, I read through Logisys' procedure and realized that they will not do anything about their terrible product.

I recommend finding something else... even building your own power supply out of trash would be better than their product!

Zalman S Series 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked great... nice to have USB

I used this for a home server, so being able to reload an image over usb was great!

Cons: Only lasted a year...

Now it does not show up over sata or usb...

Other Thoughts: Would have liked it to last longer...
