It even goes down at least for systems with a single video card. You will hardly want to build a good audio system with this integrated solution. 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. What concerns heat dissipation, the cut-down nForce is up to the mark. As these are almost the cheapest motherboards from Foxconn, they do not belong to the group of products for enthusiasts, we can only conjecture the reasons why engineers decided to offer so many functions. We can easily see it on the photo.

But the current tendency implies increasingly complex shader computations, which may turn even the most powerful processors which determine the resulting fps level into a bottleneck in high resolutions. In practice, we are to find out whether CPU overclocking will be limited by a motherboard as well as to evaluate its behavior in non-standard modes, including automatic restoration of a correct frequency after a failed overclocking attempt, etc.

We use all features of the motherboard in this test, including rasing CPU voltage and adjusting multipliers and frequencies of system and peripheral buses, if necessary but if, for example, reducing Hyper-Transport frequency does not improve overclocking, we leave the default multiplier. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: This scheme is typical of Foxconn.

The letter V stands for the official certificate of compatibility with Windows Vista Premium. They ponder whether they will have to create individual designs for each modification.

BioShock Infinite and Metro: They appear only when you try to get most of mcp61zm2ma BIOS settings. They are certainly compatible in connections as well, which allowed Foxconn to use the same design for motherboards on both chipsets. Variety of overclocking functions in BIOS seems complete.


What concerns motherboards from Foxconn, being good in design and implementation, they are still less attractive than competing products as a fault of irritating BIOS bugs. And from the practical users’ point of view, the probable upgrade to PCI Express 2. Memory voltage regulator is reinforced with L elements. Video 3Digests Video cards: 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.

On the other hand, we can understand chip makers wanting to save on inexpensive chipsets. Chipset manufacturers, as well as CPU manufacturers, just love dividing the market into segments, which are getting narrower in time, and offering different modifications of the same product for each segment. You will hardly want to foxconn a good audio system with this integrated solution.

Anyway, test results are somewhat disappointing. On the contrary, video memory is getting cheaper and it’s not difficult to install sufficient memory so that a GPU does not need system memory. Memory is set to the standard frequency for a given memory module multiplier correctionif a manufacturer does not publish any ways to improve memory overclocking. What concerns overclocking, successful attempts are rare for motherboards of this class.

If you enable the corresponding BIOS option, integrated video can work together with discrete video, so we mcp61sm2,a an opportunity to mmcp61sm2ma three monitors. We successfully installed this operating system.

It even goes down at least for systems with a single video card. 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. There are three parameters available for adjustment — minimal temperature that corresponds to minimal fan speed; maximal temperature, when fan speed reaches its maximum; and frequency growth ratio per each degree within the range specified by foxconm previous two parameters.


There is nothing unnatural about it for motherboards on expensive chipsets. It makes it inexpedient to produce low-end pin-compatible models with sterling chips and some functions locked on the logical level.

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.

Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. Otherwise, we analyze their efficiency as well. 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.

The only drawback is memory slot latches blocked by a video card.
