Foxconn 925A01-8EKRS2 Motherboard Review :: Conclusion

Solid stable performance with a no frills design about sums up what this motherboard is about. Everything you would probably ever need is built into the design, but no wireless LAN, very limited PATA/SATA options and basic overclocking options make this a worthy board in the mid level market as it does have all the basics, its just not a board an enthusiast is going to gawk at any time soon. Plain Jane, but that's okay.

One of the things I did like about the Foxconn experience in general was the fact that their website was very up to date and easy to navigate through, which makes the task of getting updates and drivers a much less troublesome venture for the end-user. Foxconn is only going to get bigger from the looks of things, so I would expect their own brand of hardware to start maturing in the next few quarters. I am sure after trail and error they will find their way on the right track. For now, the 8EKRS2 is still a viable if not overly fleshed out board for the Intel LGA775 platform. A good effort for Foxconn, but I hope they go all out and make a serious enthusiast board using the i915XE chipset to be the flagship board for the Intel platform.
