Memory ratios are limited compared to the nForce4 Intel Edition boards and the P boards that were reviewed. A single PCI Express x16 slot handles the graphics. The power plug placement favors standard ATX case designs and the power cable management is very good. Pin-outs are clearly explained, so is little confusion as possible as to which header does what. They are getting more and more available and my thinking is based on the observation that more and more mobo designs are making it hard to plug in PCI cards when you have double width x16 cards. The second BCM is a PCI solution which means under heavy network traffic, the network card can potentially get boggled down.

The DIMM module slots’ color coordination is correct for dual channel setup.
Foxconn 945P7AA-8EKRS2 – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – i945P
The board itself is full size ATX We utilized the stock Intel heat sink, but also verified if several aftermarket cooling systems would fit in this area during our tests. The CMOS reset is a traditional jumper design located conveniently along the edge of the board.
Faster access to data, aggressive protection of your business applications and data from viruses, hackers, and worms, and easier system maintenance are all afforded with these new Foxconn motherboards. Thanks a lot Reply. Memory Testing Page 9: The memory modules can easily be changed with a full size video card installed in the first PCI Express x16 slot.

Intel 945P Motherboards: Going from Hopeless to Enthusiastic
The audio panel consists of 6 ports that can be configured for 2, 4, 6, and 8-channel audio connections. Pin-outs are clearly explained, so is little confusion as possible as to which header does what. With the GMA users will get incredible graphics, vivid colors, high-definition video and audio, and more.
In fact, this system, like the other two boards, kept the chipsets cool enough so that additional chipset voltage was not a factor in our overclocking tests. Adjustable bus speeds Adjustable memory timing Adjustable voltages may be Vcore only Adjustable ratios.
The layout of this design offers a very good balance of slots and allows for numerous add-in peripheral cards. Test Setups Page 7: Depending on the applications and operating system, multi-processing environments can make a significant impact or have virtually none.
Foxconn Support – Download
The second BCM is a PCI solution which means under heavy network traffic, the network card can potentially get boggled down. Foxconn places the four-pin 12V auxiliary power connector to the left of the CPU socket area, which could cause cable management issues. We did not have any issues utilizing this slot with video cards containing single slot cooling systems, but we were unable to install a network card upon installation of a NVIDIA Ultra in the x16 PCI Express slot.
Doom 3 and Conclusions The manual covers everything from power pin outs to BIOS settings and even includes a how to on drivers. Foxconn should have included the new design as it enhances the security of the SATA connections.
The power plug placement favors standard ATX case designs and the power cable management is very good. A single PCI Express x16 slot handles the graphics. With both Intel and AMD firmly devoted to dual core processors in the foreseeable future, one would expect a flurry of dual core capable software should be hitting the market Still, future-proofing is always a good route to take, and if you are scouting out new Intel socket systems, there is no reason not to look at motherboards which support dual core CPUs.
