After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
Board Layout and Features
This board is not designed for extensive enthusiast activity and actually has a 140w processor max. The 4-phase analog PWM reinforces this limitation but should not discourage you considering that the majority of current AM3 processors are 140w and less.
MicroATX motherboards are limited to have only 4 expansion slots. The Foxconn A88GMX comes with a single 16x and single 1x PCI Express slot and 2 standard PCI slots and should provide adequate expansion abilities regardless of system use.
