Acer F672CR compatibility review

The Acer F672CR uses the Intel LGA 775/ Socket T CPU socket. Any compatible Intel CPU will have the same socket entry. It uses the aging DDR2 memory type, with maximum speeds of up to 667 MHz, and 2 DDR2 slots allowing for a maximum total of 4 GB RAM. DDR2 memory is exceptionally out of date, and considering how cheap DDR3 RAM is, using a motherboard with only DDR2 compatibility in a modern system build would be a very bad idea.

The Mini-ATX Acer F672CR uses a less common standard than the traditional ATX you most often see. As such, you should be wary of its compatibility with other cases, as well as the compatibility of PSUs with the case you choose.

The Acer F672CR has 2 SATA 2.0 hard drive slots. These allow for data speeds of up to 3GB/s. SATA 2.0 is a very common standard, and despite the emergence of SATA 3.0 - whose potential is difficult to reach currently - SATA 2.0 remains a viable option.

The Acer F672CR supports onboard graphics. This allows for integrated graphics when paired with a compatible CPU that supports them. Integrated graphics are a cheap alternative to using a graphics card, but should be avoided when frequently using modern applications or games that require intense graphical processing. There are 1 PCIe x16 slots on this motherboard. This means it is perfectly capable of accommodating the latest graphics cards, although it is important to try and use a graphics card with the same graphics card interface of PCIe v1.x, as anything below will not reach the motherboard's potential, and anything above will have its performance slashed to the bandwidth maximum of the Acer F672CR's PCIe v1.x. The Acer F672CR does not support multiple graphics cards via Nvidia SLI or AMD Crossfire.

The Acer F672CR has 7 USB 2.0 slots but no USB 3.0 slots. While USB 3.0 slots are so far by no means necessary, and with a plethora of USB 2.0 peripherals to choose from, the USB functionality on this motherboard should be fine. If planning on building a new system, a motherboard with USB 3.0 is likely to have a longer life cycle, however.
