Now that I've had the board for a while here is my review

 

I've had the motherboard for just over 9 months now. It's junk now because the plastic bracket that holds the CPU cooler is broken beyond repair. I didn't have any crazy CPU cooler or anything that should have stressed it more than normal. This is the...

Price ; Features ; On board Audio sounds really good ; Nice Manual ; For the price I think this is a decent motherboard albeit very temperamental (see cons) ; This motherboard paired with a Athlon 64x2 5600+ and a 9800GT benchmarks 4+ times faster than...

I've had intermittent issues with this motherboard from the start ; The plastic bracket that holds the cooling fan to the CPU and motherboard broke during use and sent pieces flying around in my case and into my bottom mounted power supply ;...

Very good

 

Very good for the price!

Very good cheap and does the handy work. Works well if you put a duel core in it. It works like a dream

Only one thing thats bad is that if you a led light to light up your start button on your tower. It is very hard to find it. I could not find it but i didn't look any further

It has come back to me!

 

First Foxconn board out of a few so that ain't to bad. Although, conveniently the Foxconn's RMA area of the website says NETWORK IS TO BUSY. This has been like this for quite some time and is ONLY in the RMA area of the website. HOW CONVENIENT, to...

Affordable board at the time of purchase. Perfect for putting together a budget average system at the time of writing this

This was used in a friends pc. It has now come back to me for repairs in under a year due to a hardware failure which I have narrowed down to being the motherboard only ; Now to save some time I went ahead and purchased another same board for plug and...

Foxconn A74MX-K AM2+/AM2 AMD 740G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

 

None.

Easy to install and set up in minutes, onboard audiocard does the job haven't try the DVI output yet but planning to do so very soon, for those who need a reliable mobo for a daily average use, this one it is, I recently added a media card reader and...

None that I think of

Useless Supoort

True Alienware

 

Id like my money back. Or a new board. If not I will never buy foxconn again. Thinking about uploading a video of my Xray machine.

That it appears it might still run untill I can order a board that doesnt sound like an xray machine. That would be ASUS

Ordered this board because of the parallel port but all I hear everyday is this strange random xray machine like high pitch buzzing noise. Cant take it anymore.. add to that its now randomly shutting off. Thought it was power supply but its not its...

hmm

 

Very budget motherboard, and if thats what you're looking for, this is a great option. Everything works great, which is enough for me

Driver disc sucked, their installer wouldn't work so I had to manually install the drivers. Not a big deal
