Foxconn C51XEM2AA Motherboard

2. The Package

The Foxconn retail package comes at a retail price that ranges from US$190~250, making it very affordable compared with other AM2 solutions.

Below is a list of what's included in the retail package

  • User's manual
  • 1x UltraDMA cable
  • 1x FDD cable
  • 1x 4-port USB2.0 module
  • 1x 2-port 1394a/1394b module
  • 1x I/O shield
  • 6x SATA cable
  • 3x SATA power cable
  • 1x SLI connector
  • 1x COM2 bracket cable

The board itself is quite densely packed with components, but most parts can be easily identified. What is rather inconvenient, is the fact that the memory bank sockets are very close to the CPU socket, and you will probably have some trouble installing any of the larger, third party cooling systems available.

Another Foxconn innovation is the cooling fan for Nvidia's N590 SLI chipset.

The board supports SLI mode. Here, you can see the 2x PCI-E slots. There are also 2x PCI v2.2 slots offered.

The AM2 socket, with memory Bank0 very close by.

On the I/O panel on the rear, there are the usual connections available:

  • 2x 1Gbit LAN
  • 7.1 channel audio output+S/PDIF output
  • 1394 a/b
  • 6x USB2.0
  • and of course the PS2 connections for mouse and keyboard

All of our tests were performed with an AMD Athlon 4600+ AM2 processor.
