Foxconn's new Quantum Force motherboard includes multi-purpose cooling solution for extreme overclockers.
Demonstrated to media and select customers at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, BLACKOPS looks set to delight enthusiasts with its unique BIOS features and smart integrated cooling solution.
The 4in1 Quantum Cooler is an all-copper NB-SB-VRM heatpipe solution with a difference; thanks to bundled accessories, the North Bridge (NB) section of the cooler can be quickly adapted for passive or active air cooling, water cooling or even extreme LN2 or dry ice cooling.
Last month FOXCONN revealed that the same motherboard would also include an 8-phase Digital PWM for power regulation ? one reason for the recent 6GHz overclocking benchmarks with the Intel QX9770 Core 2 Extreme processor.
Speaking from CES 2008 in Las Vegas, Quantum Force Technical Consultant Peter Tan also revealed some of the unique functions to be found in the new Quantum BIOS ? a more advanced version of the Gladiator BIOS found on last year?s MARS motherboard.
"We have opened up many more settings for end users to access compared with the Gladiator BIOS, but this new BIOS is not just about more settings. Quantum BIOS introduces a new way of organizing the information and options found in traditional BIOS menus, and we believe that we have created something more intuitive and user friendly. In addition, we've tried to explain what each setting does, and we have arranged them in logical groups where settings have an affect on each other".
No information on pricing or availability was released at CES, but the product will be available "this quarter" according to Quantum Force Product Manager Greta Kuo.
