The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn’t been tested. On the whole, motherboard functionality is on a high for a presumably budget model level. SuperStep to overclock and monitor system parametersSuperLogo to change the graphic logo at startupand SuperUpdate to search for the latest BIOS version via Internet and to flash the loaded image. It’s practically excellent 61508ma a microATX motherboard.
It supports audio output 615k08ma 8 speakers, but there is no bit audio support and other advantages of High Definition Audio. Proprietary technologies and peculiarities SuperBoot — PC boot acceleration: Other manufacturers are already doing this, and it really does same DIY’ers time and headaches.
A standalone graphics card can also be installed in the single PCI Express x16 slot if desired. Both the nVidia GeForce chipset and nForce Southbridge are cooled with silent passive aluminum heatsinks.
Foxconn 6150K8MA-8EKRS – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket 939 – GeForce 6150
There has been a lot of focus on motherboard capacitors in the last year, so we make a point of listing the brands used on the boards we test. The high heatsink on the northbridge may be an obstacle to install a video card with a bulky heatsink at the back side. Write a comment below. Enthusiasts want custom machines, with features they can customize. Dynamic range, dB A: The particular board we tested did not come with a user’s manual, which is a bit surprising, 610k8ma there is one included on the driver CD.
Foxconn PRODUCT : Motherboard : Details
But even though this model uses the top chipset in the series, it still has some empty seats on the PCB — BIOS write protection jumper it’s not soldered in all models of the current revision and an additional audio-in AUX-In. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Though the motherboard under review with the current BIOS version does not allow to set DRAM Timing, which is so important for performance, it was automatically set to 1T in our tests; detailed information on the memory mode is displayed at startup.
It’s very strange that HDA support, which finally found its way to NVIDIA chipsets, is not included in this motherboard, which is 8ekrss for a home multimedia center! This model on the manufacturer’s web site Russian mirror The motherboard is kindly provided by the manufacturer Sergei Pikalov peek ixbt.
Noise 6150k8,a, dB A: All the bracket headers are at the bottom 1650k8ma the motherboard, 6150k8mma helps keep things tidy.
Foxconn SuperUtilites package is a typical set of utilities: Integrated video; it’s an area where AMD has not had a presence since the dawn of the Athlon 64 processor, and unfortunately it is also one of the largest markets.
There is a brief description of jumper functions on a PCB. Foxconn include a decent software bundle here; with a full copy of Norton Internet Security among the titles.
Sergei Pikalov peek ixbt. In general, critical circuits incorporate electrolytic capacitors from OST we are not very enthusiastic about it and United Chemi-Con. As for now, we offer a traditional express-comparison of results demonstrated by this and other models of the same class.
The deciding factor may be its low price, but we actually had no reliable information about it at the time we published this article.
The PCB layout is simple fortunately, there are practically no additional controllers. The 8ekrrs switching voltage regulator of the processor incorporates three field-effect transistors per channel, five uF capacitors, four uF ones, and several ones of lesser capacitance. There are three 32 bit PCI slots for other expansion peripherals, such as a wireless network card or TV tuner.
In this case we decided to limit ourselves to publishing the results of a single motherboard on a different chipset SiSas the performance of AMD64 solutions does not depend on a chipset to be more exact, only periphery’s and probably video card’s performance depends on it. It expands its wide range of products, whenever the 8ekrw occurs. There is a load menu function, which allows to choose a boot device to startup 6150i8ma system without modifying BIOS Setup.
