Basic Features: Foxconn 755-A01 for Athlon 64
Foxconn is using shades of green packaging for the 755-A01. The motherboard is available for less than $90 at on-line retailers.
Considering the low selling price of the Foxconn 755-A01, the feature set is truly amazing. Gigabit LAN, Firewire and 4-drive SATA RAID are features you don't normally find in a $90 board, but Foxconn includes all 3.

The only overclocking controls in the Award BIOS were a very limited range of FSB speeds from 200-232. The BIOS has no options for voltage adjustments. Foxconn did provide a complete selection of memory timings, which will allow you to get the most from your memory in the 755-A01.
