Foxconn A7DA 3.0: Socket AM3 Mainboard on AMD 790GX Chipset
We are already familiar with a Socket AM3 mainboard on AMD 790GX chipset from the earlier review of Asus M4A78T-E. We canít say that we were too pleased with the results at that time. The board is well put together and has an extensive feature list that is totally up to contemporary standards. Its BIOS is very functional and easy to work with. However, we faced some difficulties not only during CPU overclocking, but also during work in nominal mode. Incompatibility with memory modules is a very serious and unpleasant problem, which no one ever wants to face. However, we learned almost right away that the mainboard maker was very unlikely to be responsible for that. Gigabyte MA790XT-UD4P also failed to work normally with the same memory modules, although it was a mainboard from a different maker and based on a different chipset (even though from the same family). However, I donít think it is a good excuse for the potential and present owners of Asus M4A78T-E as well as for the Socket AM3 platform fans in general.
