It expands its wide range of products, whenever the opportunity occurs. It unveiled two models based on modifications of chipset combinations, promising to become very popular: The models are practically no different, except for their chipsets and the resulting functionalitythey use the same PCB with the same peculiarities, and even the same BIOS version: On the whole, motherboard functionality is on a high for a presumably budget model level.
Foxconn 6150K8MA-8EKRS – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket 939 – GeForce 6150
The PCB layout is simple fortunately, there are practically no additional controllers. It’s practically excellent for a microATX motherboard.
The high heatsink on the northbridge may be an obstacle to install a 6150l8ma card with a bulky heatsink at the back side. As the graphics slot is too close to memory slots, an installed video card may hamper your manipulations with memory modules. 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.
There is a brief description of jumper functions on a PCB. Besides, the board also shows the layout of all interface headers, which is a rare thing. The 3-phase switching voltage regulator of the processor incorporates three field-effect transistors per channel, five uF capacitors, four uF ones, 6150j8ma several ones of lesser capacitance. 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 soldered in all models of the current revision and an additional audio-in 6150kk8ma.
Foxconn SuperUtilites package is a typical set of utilities: 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.
Review: Foxconn K8MA-8EKRS Mainboard – Mainboard –
Frequency response from 40 Hz to 15 kHzdB: It’s very strange that HDA 6150k8mq, which finally found its way to NVIDIA chipsets, is not included in this motherboard, which is intended for a home multimedia center! It supports audio output to 8 speakers, but there is no bit audio support and other advantages of High Definition Audio. Proprietary technologies and peculiarities SuperBoot — PC boot acceleration: The mentioned BIOS parameters are available 8e,rs this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn’t been tested.
There is a load menu function, which allows to choose a boot device to startup a system without modifying BIOS Setup.
As for now, we offer a traditional express-comparison of results demonstrated by this and other models of the same class. In this case we decided to limit ourselves to publishing the results of 6150k8ms 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 6105k8ma tests; detailed information on the memory mode is displayed at startup. The deciding factor may be its low price, but we actually had no reliable information about it at the time we published this article.
This model on the manufacturer’s web site Russian mirror The motherboard is kindly provided by the manufacturer Sergei Pikalov peek ixbt.
