Other manufacturers are already doing this, and it really does same DIY’ers time and headaches. There is a brief description of jumper functions on a PCB.
Foxconn WinFast K8MA-8EKRS Motherboard Review – Techgage
In terms of goodies, the motherboard incorporates onboard analog video, a 7. The only jumper is placed in an ideal location, access to it is not hampered even when a motherboard is installed into a narrow PC case.
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.
A standalone graphics card can also be installed in the single PCI 6150k8ma-8ekfs x16 slot if desired. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. Both the nVidia GeForce chipset and nForce Southbridge are cooled with silent passive aluminum heatsinks.
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. 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 are three 32 bit PCI slots for other expansion peripherals, such as a wireless network card or TV tuner. Current chipsets featuring integrated video are loaded with features but lack performance especially when it comes to 3D games. 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. Besides, the board also shows the layout of all interface headers, which is a rare thing.
Noise level, dB A: The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn’t been tested.
The board also contains a voltage regulator for memory consisting of several uF capacitors. This model on the manufacturer’s web site Russian mirror The motherboard is kindly provided by the manufacturer Sergei Pikalov peek ixbt.
Video 3Digests Video cards: On the whole, motherboard functionality is on a high for a presumably budget model level. 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. The high heatsink on the northbridge may be an obstacle to install a video card with a bulky heatsink at the back side.

Doom 3 and Conclusion. Write a comment below. The 3-phase 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.
On the flip side, consumers looking to build a budget workstation machine can save a bit of money with a good integrated video motherboard, which precludes the need to buy a standalone winnfast right off the bat.
As for now, we offer a traditional express-comparison of results demonstrated by this and other models of the same class. In general, critical circuits incorporate electrolytic capacitors from OST we are not very enthusiastic about it and United Chemi-Con.
As the graphics slot is too close to memory slots, an installed video card may hamper your manipulations with memory modules. The particular board we tested did not come with a user’s manual, which is a bit surprising, however there is one included on the driver CD. 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.
