Now that we have tested out the big players, Foxconn comes by with their 890GX board. Could this be the best of the bunch?

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: AMD, Foxconn, Kingston and Cooler Master.

I liked the layout and the ease of build with the Foxconn board. I had no issues with the initial setup and even with the rather simple overclocking tools I was able to match our best clock on the Phenom II X4 965 without too much trouble.

 

The included software was another matter altogether. The installer for the drivers is about as cheesy as you can get. When I first launched the installer I thought I was going to be playing Galaga. Despite this eye watering application, the actual install of the drivers was very smooth.
