I would like to thank CaseKing.de for making the preview possible.
CaseKing is one of the few companies out there, which will not just sell anything. They only offer hardware that performs well and is of high quality. The shop offers quite a few exclusive parts and devices from all around the world and it is also the official distributor for a long list of well known manufacturers. Their assortment has grown greatly in recent years, while great service and support is still a very important part of the shop philosophy. The website may be in German, but due to great demand, an English version is in the works. The company has started to diversify its product portfolio, moving into components.
Foxconn and Caseking are working together to establish the brand in the EU and we have been offered to do a preview of the Intel P67 based P67A-S motherboard. This is a mainstream part intended for the enthusiast who does not want to spend hundreds of dollars but still aims to get as much functionality as possible. Foxconn will resurrect the Quantum Force brand as well and offer P67 and X68 boards with all the usual features of the high priced motherboard segment.
