But it only concerns rather simple games from the point of view of modern GPUs. And from the practical users’ point of view, the probable upgrade to PCI Express 2. It uses OST capacitors. It’s all the more expedient, considering that video memory size in system requirements of games is often a determining factor. What concerns heat dissipation, the cut-down nForce is up to the mark. They are certainly compatible in connections as well, which allowed Foxconn to use the same design for motherboards on both chipsets.

On the other hand, we can understand chip makers wanting to save on inexpensive chipsets.

They appear only when you try to get most of your BIOS settings. Performance drop in non-graphical tests caused by additional load on the memory controller from the video core is minimal. The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn’t been tested. We use all features of the motherboard in this test, including rasing CPU voltage and adjusting multipliers and frequencies of system and peripheral buses, if necessary but if, for example, reducing Hyper-Transport frequency does not improve overclocking, we leave the default multiplier.

Variety of overclocking functions in BIOS seems complete.

Foxconn engineers got the most out of the existing two PCI Express lanes, having installed two ports. We successfully installed this operating system. We also failed to reduce the rotational speed of CPU and system fans using Tiger One, which comes shipped with this motherboard. The bundle also includes Norton Internet Security The set of proprietary utilities mc6p1sm2ma To all appearances, it’s not installed very well, as we have already met this codec in motherboards, where it demonstrated a tad higher results.


They are certainly compatible in connections as well, which allowed Foxconn to use the same design for motherboards on both chipsets. Two times out of three we managed to reach maximum frequency, but then the motherboard just stopped responding to the increased frequency – it restored the default frequency each time we rebooted the computer!

Mcp61s,2ma, chances for a lag are higher for a video card with less memory mcp61sk2ma case of registering average as well as minimal fps. Lots of users go to shop for a video card “supporting DirectX 9. As is well known, peak load on a graphical interface during a game appears when textures are uploaded for frame rendering.

But it’s much more convenient to have mcp61am2ma minimal number of modifications in the economic segment to be manufactured on a mass scale.

Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. There are three parameters available for adjustment — minimal temperature that corresponds to minimal fan speed; maximal temperature, when fan speed reaches its maximum; and frequency growth ratio per each degree within the range specified by the previous two parameters.

It makes sense for Foxconn to grow in this direction, if foconn company wants to use overclocking options as a competitive advantage. They ponder whether they will have to create individual designs for each modification. It even goes down at least for systems with a single video card. Hence the natural decision to use the 6-channel output instead of the 8-ch one.


We can easily see it on the photo. But unfortunately, we failed to get any fan response it did not matter whether 3-pin or 4-pin fans to Smart Fan with the current version of BIOS on this motherboard.

What concerns overclocking, successful attempts are rare for motherboards of this class. By the way, the emergency frequency reset procedure is not ideal. Considering the high efficiency minimal heat dissipationmcpp61sm2ma motherboards look well mcl61sm2ma compact PC cases for low-noise systems, entry-level media centers.

What concerns motherboards from Foxconn, being good in design and implementation, they are still less attractive than competing products as a fault of irritating BIOS bugs. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: It’s evidently not enough to open these options in BIOS, which are usually locked in inexpensive motherboards.

There is nothing unnatural about it for motherboards on mcp61sm2mq chipsets. It does not mean, of course, that assembling a gaming computer now, you should consider motherboards with a cut-down graphics bus fortunately, the choice and prices of motherboards with sterling PCI Express x16 are more than acceptable.

The impression was spoilt by operating instability. The letter V stands for the official certificate of compatibility with Windows Vista Premium.

The only drawback is memory slot latches blocked by a video card.
