As we have said, the developers used the chipset Intel P45, working together with the south bridge ICH9.

Note also the presence of two 24-pin power connector, located on the motherboard, as well, according to informed sources, the six -phase PWM circuit. Apparently, the company Foxconn is preparing a very interesting product for overclockers.





Novelty is presented as an exhibit at CES 2008, and the product was designated F1, which clearly indicates the excellent speed performance fees and the highest power. But we can not forget about the high cost of ...
