Foxconn 925XE7AA-8EKRS2

..:: Introduction ::..

Over the past few months, we’ve seen Foxconn emerge from the shadows to become an excellent option for both budget buyers, as well as a progression towards true, high performance motherboard products. In our first experiences with Foxconn motherboards, we were pleasantly surprised with the performance seen from both of the i915G and i915P motherboards. We found a few faults with the BIOS layout though, so Foxconn still had some work left to attend to. Today, we’ll be taking a good look over of the 925XE7AA-8EKRS2, Foxconn’s i925XE offering. Has Foxconn paid attention to what the hardware community has fed back to them about previous products? Have any other improvements been made with the product, such as accessories and design? Read on to find out, you might find yourself pleasantly surprised.
