    FOXCONN today announced the A78AX family of discrete motherboards based on the AMD 770 chipset with SB700 southbridge - providing a low-cost, low-power solution for the latest AMD processors. As the first motherboard manufacturer to use the SB700 southbridge across its entire AMD 7-Series chipset range, the A78AX has been configured to provide 6 SATAII connectors with RAID functionality, up to 10 USB2.0 ports, HyperTransport 3.0 technology and full support for AM2+ Phenom processors and socket AM2 Athlon and Sempron models.

    FoxOne Premium
    Also included on all A78AX motherboards is FOXCONN’s proprietary FoxOne Premium solution, which enables easy overclocking, fan control and system monitoring from a dedicated Windows application - to saving users from navigating complex BIOS options.

    4 phase Power Design
    The 4 phase power design on the A78AX motherboards provides superb stability and lower operating temperatures. This delivers more performance headroom and greater reliability to meet the demands of everyday computing.

    Supports AMD Overdrive
    The A78AX fully supports the new AMD OverDrive utility for overclocking, system monitoring and benchmarking, making it easier to tune and rate your system’s performance.

    Im loving the Sb700. I wish the Msi K9na2 Platinum I want (will be getting soon) would have the SB700 chipset on it.

    When do we get to see reviews of these 770 + sb700 boards?
    Biostar and Jetway have similar offerings too but no reviews..
