Both the nVidia GeForce chipset and nForce Southbridge are cooled with silent passive aluminum heatsinks.
Foxconn WinFast K8MA-8EKRS — a Motherboard on NVIDIA GeForce (Socket )
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. Frequency response from 40 Hz to 15 kHzdB: The high heatsink on the northbridge may be an obstacle to install a video card with a bulky heatsink at the 6150i8ma side.
Write a comment below. Beginners Guides Cases and Access. It’s practically excellent for a microATX motherboard.
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. 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.
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. As for now, we offer a traditional express-comparison of results demonstrated by this and other models of the same class.
It’s very strange that HDA support, which finally found its way to NVIDIA chipsets, is not included in this motherboard, which is intended for a home multimedia center! All the bracket headers are at the bottom of the motherboard, which helps keep things tidy. Video 3Digests Video cards: Besides, the board also shows the layout of all interface headers, which is a rare thing.
It unveiled two models based on modifications of chipset combinations, promising to become very popular: Other manufacturers are already doing this, and it really does same DIY’ers time and headaches. 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.
It expands its wide range of products, whenever the opportunity occurs. There is a load menu function, which allows to choose a boot device to startup a system without modifying BIOS Setup.
The models are practically no different, except for their chipsets and the resulting functionalitythey 6150k8,a the same PCB with the same peculiarities, and even the same BIOS version: 8dkrs the release of the nVIDIA’s GeForce series chipsets, enthusiasts now have a high powered integrated option that does not well The board also contains a voltage regulator for memory consisting of several uF capacitors.
In general, critical circuits incorporate electrolytic capacitors from OST we are not very enthusiastic about it and United Chemi-Con. 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 e8krs in all models of the current revision and an 6150k8mz audio-in AUX-In.
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 videocard right off the bat. There is a brief description of jumper functions on a PCB. Foxconn SuperUtilites package is a typical set of utilities: Noise level, dB A: Integrated video; it’s an area where AMD has not had a presence since the dawn of 8eksr Athlon 64 processor, and unfortunately it is also one of the largest markets.
Foxconn 6150K8MA-8EKRS – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket 939 – GeForce 6150
The 3-phase 8ekrw voltage regulator of the processor incorporates three field-effect transistors per channel, five uF capacitors, four uF ones, and several ones of lesser capacitance.
Foxconn include a decent software bundle here; with a full copy of Norton Internet Security among the titles. If you watch movies mainly on your monitor, you can still enjoy the benefits of the GeForce ‘s HD accelerator 8ekrz. Sergei Pikalov peek ixbt. The deciding factor may be its low price, but we actually had no reliable information about it at the time we published this article.
It supports audio output to 8 speakers, but there is no bit audio support and other advantages of High Definition Audio. Dynamic range, dB A: Doom 3 and Conclusion. BioShock Infinite and Metro: There are three 32 bit PCI slots for other expansion peripherals, such as a wireless network card or TV tuner.
A standalone graphics card can also be installed in the single PCI Express x16 slot if desired. Current chipsets featuring integrated video are loaded with features but lack performance especially when it comes to 3D games. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. 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. The PCB layout is simple fortunately, there are practically no additional controllers.
Proprietary technologies and peculiarities SuperBoot — 6510k8ma boot acceleration: This model on the manufacturer’s web site Russian mirror The motherboard is kindly provided by the manufacturer Sergei Pikalov peek ixbt.
On the whole, motherboard functionality is on a high for a presumably budget model level.
