Multimedia PC’s can come in all shapes and sizes, from devices that look like a regular PC, to hardware right at home in an entertainment center. Integrated audio support is implemented well. This time there is an abundance of timings, yet the selection of settings has not become more balanced. IDE, Floppy and the main ATX power connector are placed on the right hand side of the memory slots which makes keeping cables away from the other peripherals easy. The supply voltage stabilizer is enhanced by using chokes with United Chemi-Con capacitors.

RAM is set by using multiplier correction to the standard frequency for the modules being used, unless the manufacturer specifies methods for improving memory overclocking, in which case their effectiveness is also explored.

This choice of components is quite good. Another positive attribute is the compound-covered induction coils in memory and chipset supply circuits.

Office PCs rarely if ever need strong 3D gaming performance unless someone’s 6900g off naturallyso this arrangement fixconn consumers skimp on buying a pricy videocard, and as needs change or your budget materializes an appropriately powerfup PCI Express x16 videocard can be installed.

We have made the effort of listening to this motherboard in various modes using a passive CPU cooler and registered no foreign sounds in the supply system. The highest value for the inexpensive boards is most often in the range of MHz, while in this case we cannot lower the multiplier or at least raise the bus voltage.


This board is more likely to be suitable for a work computer. Most people choose the MicroATX form factor when building foxcoonn entertainment machine, it’s small enough to get tucked away next to a HDTV, and big enough to work with standard computer hardware, videocards and peripherals. Video 3Digests Video cards: In contrast to the rest of companies, Foxconn has chosen to use this foxcnon exclusively for making microATX boards without the support for HDMI, this chipset’s key feature, even in the higher-end versions.

Such design fully satisfies the cooling requirements for this chipset.

Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. The practical goal of our test is to find out if the CPU’s high overclocking potential is hindered by the board and to evaluate the board’s behavior in non-standard BIOS modes.

The AMD Radeon X read about its capabilities here, if you’d like a little more detail is good for 2D office applications like Word, or email or websurfing.

However, if lowering Hyper-Transport frequency, for example, doesn’t improve overclocking performance, amdd default multiplier is used instead. Compatibility with 3-pin connector fans is provided. In order to evaluate the overclocked system’s stability, we load Windows XP and run performance tests built into WinRAR Tools menu – Benchmark and hardware test for 10 minutes.

The board successfully reverted to default settings in cases of excessive overclocking, no problems there. This time there is an abundance of timings, yet the selection of settings has not become more balanced. For tests with integrated graphics we have used Catalyst 7. Foxconn hasn’t produced motherboards on AMD chipsets under its brand before. This utility also allows controlling CPU fan speed manually. The supply voltage stabilizer is enhanced by using chokes with United Chemi-Con capacitors.


Personally I love home-built dedicated entertainment computers; playing music and movie off of disks just seems so quaint in comparison to fully digital formats.

The Foxconn model was not designed for such enthusiasts. Beginners Guides Cases and Access. Conclusions We were pleased with the board from the technical standpoint and with the way it was equipped.

USB ports are equipped with edges, which is another sign of user-friendliness. Therefore, such motherboards are more likely to attract system fixconn and ordinary users that need inexpensive systems. This test also assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc. One area where Foxconn really excels is its product design and layout.

BioShock Infinite and Metro: The HTPC revolution is moving along nicely and with broad support from hardware manufacturers, things look like they’re about to kick into high gear. For this reason, it is impossible for us, and any other review, to determine the overclocking potential of any board with megahertz precision.

Integrated audio support is foxcpnn well.
