Foxconn 755A01-6EKRS AMD Motherboard Review

Former staff writer    -   May 6, 2004


Conclusion:
Well, I must say, this board surprised me. I expected this motherboard, from a company I had never heard of, to suck. I guess it just goes to show, “you can't judge a book by it's cover.”



It may not have stomped the Chaintech motherboard in all of the test, it did show better results in well over half the test. When you factor that in with the cost of the two boards, the Foxconn clearly stands out as the better price/performance motherboard ($85 vs $165). Though I will say the Chaintech board still stands out if you are looking for overclocking and extras.

Pros

  • Price
  • Performance
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • 2x RAID or Standalone SATA ports
  • Included monitoring software

 

Cons

  • Flat Cables
  • Few Extra's
  • Not many overclocking options in BIOS
  • Doesn't overclock well
  • Can only use standard heatsinks / Mounting plate is not removeable
