OEM major Foxconn's very own channel brand is ready with its first high-end socket LGA1155 motherboard based on the Intel P67 Express chipset, supporting upcoming "Sandy Bridge" processors. The motherboard falls into Foxconn Channel's gamer and overclocker oriented Quantum Force brand. The Quantum Force P67 from Foxconn uses bleeding-edge components such as digital PWM offering precise voltage control for the processor, multi-phase VRM for the four DDR3 memory slots, and is rich in connectivity options.

I like the look of this board, even though my color of choice is blue. I also like how the socket looks a bit rusty (that could be bad), it gives it a hardcore feel. I don't like that they still put IDE connections on modern enthusiast motherboards, jeez. Almost nobody uses them.

The board does look quite nice but the socket makes me think this board was left outside at some point and went rusty :laugh:

I thought it was being released during CES so very start of January, although it could just be shown off at CES and released at a later date I'm not 100% sure but i am really looking forward to the reviews :D but i have a feeling i should wait to upgrade until the LGA1356 CPU's are released.

What did Foxconn do, talk to the local village blacksmith to forge the socket bracket out of some junk they had left over?

I see they are also going with a gimmick name. QUANTUM FORCE!

Better than MSI's Dr.Mos!.....reminds me of green eggs and ham Sam I am.

Or Gigabyte's Ultra Durable ...... reminds me of durex condoms.

That's a tough alloy Lotes/Foxconn use on their sockets, which doesn't expand on heat much. I've got it on my X58A-UD7, too.

Why does it look like that though? I'm sure there's some way to make it look uniform/stainless steel-ish like everything else in technology.

Honestly I imagine it's because most people don't care, it's going to be covered by some kind of cpu cooler for the vast majority of it's life.



Although having said that foxconnn are reaaal crappy board makers in my experiance so it could just be that :laugh:

DrMos are capacitors and/or Mosfets, not sure which exactly. And they are highly regarded actually. So i don't think MSI invented this, they just brag about these components on their boards.

You are right DrMOS is a combination of MOSFET's (metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor) with the MOSFET driver as in Driver MOSFET into one chip instead of multiple, I'm not sure who makes them for MSI but Texas Industries makes the DrMOS used on the AMD 68xx graphics cards so not exactly a MSI only thing and MSI don't even make them (at least as far as i know they don't make them or anything component wise :laugh:).

That socket uses Carbon steel material on frame,stainless steel on load plate and load level, thermoplastic frame insulator, low-carbon steel on back plate and screw(s), coated with Nitride oxide. Kind of like coating on the front fork on modern sportbikes (which uses titanium-nitride-oxide coating to lessen the friction).

And some uses copper alloy frame, with 15u" gold plating.

And the truth is, foxconn (or lotes) could make it more appealing, like this.or maybe they use less durable coating on them

Looks of the socket kind of shouldn't matter, unless you run the system without any CPU cooling whatsoever. Even a skimpy water-block should cover the socket.

BTA doesn't your cover polish to a shiny finish as mine did? Looks to me like the Foxconn is just all oxidized from handling.

Of course its never going to be seen unless you are building the rig or tearing it down;)
