If you enable the corresponding BIOS option, integrated video can work together with discrete video, so we get an opportunity to connect three monitors. The inexpensive HDA codec from Realtek does not produce good impressions. Two times out of three we managed to reach maximum frequency, but then the motherboard just stopped responding to the increased frequency – it restored the default frequency each time we rebooted the computer! The only drawback is memory slot latches blocked by a video card. Nevertheless, we hasn’t found out what will stop Vista from running on a computer with a motherboard without V. We’ve carried out additional tests with a less powerful video card and in heavier modes. However, we’d like to see the heatsinks to be sure that such a motherboard will be stable even in a tight PC case working under load for a long time.

The set of proprietary utilities includes: We successfully installed this operating system.

But unfortunately, we failed to get any fan response it did not matter whether 3-pin or 4-pin fans to Smart Fan with the current version of BIOS on this motherboard. Tiger One for system monitoring it alerts a user when monitored parameters go beyond the admissible limitsoverclocking similar to BIOS toolsand Fox LiveUpdate for automatic BIOS updates it can also check for updates on the official web site.
But if a user of this motherboard decides to buy a decent video card with a state-of-the-art GPU and sufficient memory, it will be able to play decent games. If you enable the corresponding BIOS option, integrated video can work together with discrete video, so we get an opportunity to connect three monitors.

Otherwise, it would be better to limit the choice of settings to fully functional ones. What’s really topical for top GeForce and models in nasty conditions, it won’t fail due to systematic overheating. However, we’d like to see the heatsinks to be sure that such focconn motherboard will be stable even in a tight PC case working under load for a long time. I have an impression that motherboard manufacturers can do without heatsinks for these models.
Otherwise, we analyze their efficiency as well.
It does not mean, of course, that assembling a gaming computer now, you should consider motherboards with a cut-down graphics bus fortunately, the choice and prices of motherboards with sterling PCI Express x16 are more than acceptable. One of them indeed accepts any video card, and seems to work as any sterling PCI Express x Memory voltage regulator is reinforced with L elements.
To all appearances, it’s not installed very well, as we have already met this codec in motherboards, where it demonstrated a tad higher results. Two times out of three we managed to reach maximum frequency, but then the motherboard just stopped responding to the increased frequency – it restored the default frequency each time we rebooted the computer!
Variety of overclocking functions in BIOS seems complete.
Anyway, test results are somewhat disappointing. Having reset parameters, we made another overclocking attempt on one of the motherboards, but we failed to achieve such high results, even though we tried to raise voltage at the chipset, HT bus, and changed other settings nothing of the sort was done for the first successful attempt.
Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: In the latter case, the difference just must be – that’s where the video card “sits” on a single PCI Express lane. In practice, the results are not that simple — the inexplicable lag in “serious” applications the only explanation is that the motherboard does not allow to select an external video card as the only video output device; to make it “primary”, you mxp61sm2ma to reassign video output in Windows.
It makes sense for Foxconn to grow in this direction, if the company wants to use overclocking options as a competitive advantage. Foxconn engineers got the most out of the foxconh two PCI Express lanes, having installed two ports.

Proprietary technologies and fxconn SuperBoot — PC boot acceleration: It uses OST capacitors. Foxconh are going to evaluate how “defective” this radical reduction of PCI Express lanes is from the point of view of gaming performance. Performance drop in non-graphical tests caused by additional load on the memory controller from the video core is minimal.
But it’s much more convenient to have a minimal number of modifications in the economic segment to be manufactured on a mass scale. Lots of users go to shop for a video card “supporting DirectX 9. It’s all the more expedient, considering that video memory size in system requirements of games is often a determining factor.
On the other hand, we can understand chip makers wanting to save on inexpensive chipsets. They ponder whether they will have to create individual designs for each modification.
