Over time, Foxconn worked to correct this perception, and they have released several motherboards using their “WinFast” branding that attempted to cater to this market. There are no problems with the layout of elements. Intel Core 2 Value all the way? Its users either don’t want to pay for eXtreme features of top models, or just don’t have enough money. While it might be tempting to touch the pins inside the socket mechanism, it’s a bad idea as you can damage them easily. The Intel P Express chipset is cooled by a larger passive aluminum heatsink that takes advantage of the air currents from the CPU fan exhaust for cooling. You can install a maximum of 8GB of DDR memory into the system while running in a dual channel configuration, and the motherboard supports all Socket processors, from the lowly Celeron D to the flagship Core 2 Extreme and can run with FSB’s of , and MHz.

We also tested Smooth Over Clock in action. We continually see Foxconn having some of the longest product names around and would just assume they shorten the names and liven up the descriptions.
Onboard ports, sockets, and connectors Processor socket Socketofficially supports all existing processors for this socket: No USB brackets are included however. Next to the memory we find the legacy floppy and main 24 pin ATX power connector. Dynamic range, dB A: They have provided motherboards for many OEMs in the past, but it has only been more recently that they began to offer their boards on the retail market.
Running a few steps forward, we can say that the motherboard proved to be a decent product. So we had to retest the competing model Gigabyte G-DS3 – the fastest model built on this series of chipsets with such parameters.
We had to raise voltage to 2. Both the P Express and ICH8 chipsets are passively cooled with compact aluminum heatsinks so you’re advised to maintain consistent system airflow to keep chipset temperatures in check.

Perhaps it’s not very interesting to read about it, but it performs really well. Intel has really etgernet up the heat on AMD with its ‘Conroe’ architecture.
Intel P965: Foxconn P9657AA- 8KS2H
While it might be tempting to touch the pins inside the socket mechanism, it’s a bad idea as you can damage them easily. Foxconn has introduced their CORE series of motherboards that will appeal to the budget minded user who still expects a very good feature set, excellent quality, and solid performance for their money. The Intel motherboard market is very hot right now and motherboard manufacturers are flooding it with all types of Core 2 Duo compatible boards.
Foxconn manufactures two models based on Intel P We were a tad disappointed by its refusal to work with our SATA controller.
For legacy hardware, three PCI slots are provided. The motherboard allows to call up a menu to select a boot device during the POST procedure by pressing a certain key or to display it always – you can configure it in BIOS Setupa convenient way for a once-only boot-up, for example from a CD drive, without making changes in BIOS Setup.
What concerns functional problems, we can note one of the three PCI slots – it’s very close to the graphics slot, so a video card with a bulky cooling system can leave you only with two available PCI slots. Unfortunately, as we stated in a previous review, merely saying a product has “extreme performance” does not make it so.

No description about what’s different though. The Intel P Express chipset is cooled by a larger passive aluminum heatsink that takes advantage of the air currents from the CPU fan exhaust for cooling. It’s a classic representative of Middle-End. The layout of the board is well thought out, the o9657aa of ports and headers are located near the edge of the PCB where hands have easier access.
