    Many had speculated that OEM giant Foxconn's own motherboard channel-brand is being closed down as the silicon conglomerate has enough on its plate. That turned out to be untrue, as the company released a new high-end socket LGA1155 motherboard based on Intel P67 (B3) chipset, the Quantum Force Rattler. The Rattler combines high-grade components with plenty of overclocker-friendly features. The CPU is powered by a 14-phase digital PWM power circuitry, and the memory by a 2-phase VRM. An OS-independent clock speed control with its own controls add to the numerous OC features.

    Expansion includes two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 (x8/x8 with both populated), three PCI-E x1, and one PCI. In the storage department, there are four SATA 3 Gb/s, two SATA 6 Gb/s wired to the P67 PCH, while a 3rd-party controller drives two eSATA 3 Gb/s and the lone IDE connector. Connectivity includes 8-channel HD audio with optical/coaxial SPDIF outputs, two USB 3.0 ports, a number of USB 2.0 ports, dual gigabit Ethernet, and PS/2 keyboard. OC-friendly features includes diagnostic LED, redundant BIOS, OC tuner, consolidated voltage-measure points and onboard power/reset buttons. Pricing/availability is not known.

    That's a protective alloy coating. Only high-grade motherboard sockets have that.

    I couldn't resist that since it's a Foxconn board. I don't think they would have anything but a Foxconn socket on their boards:laugh:
    Not wanting to dig up any dirt on that issue, I certainly haven't had any Foxconn sockets "burn out".
    It's good to see them making a performance P67 board, last one I recall was the BlackOps.
    Lots of choices now for Sandy Bridge, I would have bit the bullet on an EVGA P67 board, but they are still awol.

    Nobody cares. It's not like people run their CPUs without coolers.
