Foxconn X38A supports BOTH SLI and CrossFire

Many a motherboard manufacturer have showcased their Intel based X38 mainboards at Computex 07.

Unlike everyone elses offerings, Foxconn have something rather special. A motherboard that supports both NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFire.

Many an enthusiast, myself included, have based a decision to buy a motherboard on the support offered. It seems Foxconn are trying to make that decision that little bit easier.

Aparently the secret lies in drivers, it is not known if these drivers will be locked to Foxconn motherboards or if they will become available to all P35/X38 boards.

Well in the way of fans, i would give this tread a read, it is very helpful, Just scroll down to the part where they test them on radiators.

Hope this helps.

Sorry to double post, but the golfball 2000 look to be a popular choice, if you dont mind spending around £12.

Thats a very good read. Is it me, or do the fans listed in the original post not mate up with the fans that were tested?

I'm very tempted by the Sharkoon Silent Eagle 2000 120mm, as well as delta wfb1212m's.

Can't seem to find anywhere in the UK that sell the Delta's.

What would you guys go for out of the 2 above? I'd need 3 of them, and will be attached to a fan controller (7v-12v), and I would like a balance between performance and noise.

They need to be better performance than the yate loons too, as I want to dissipate around 360w of heat

I'm not selling them just yet. Want to see what the Sharkoons are like first.

The other 3 are for replacing the tri-cool fans in the P182, if I do decide to swap them out.

I'll let you know if I do sell up tho:)

id say it was more down to case airflow than anything.. get some of them exhaust blowers one at each side of the gtx should expel the hot air so the rad doesnt get it

Which case blowers are these? Are you talking about the PCI blower fans?
