My System Specs

Default Foxconn ELA LGA 775 Intel P45 Motherboard

Was wondering if anyone had any experience with this motherboard, I tend to avoid Foxconn stuff like the plague, but it looks like a rather good featured board for what I need it for (To replace a failed Abit AW9D-Max) in my temp folding system, and for $78 + Free shipping at newegg looked like a steal of a deal.

Any Input or alternative choices for a folding board would be awesome, trying to keep the band-aid fix for this system under about $150.

Foxconn is actually a pretty good OEM board maker. They do most of the stuff other board manufacturer put on their product. This board seems fair to me for the price take it;)

It's a solid board. I have one, and it's been pretty great for me. Just don't expect miracles on the overclocking side of things, and the voltage controls are implemented quite unintuitively as well. But if you can get past that, it's a great multi-GPU board.
