Foxconn P67 Rattler Review and Overclocking


Foxconn aren't one of those manufacturers that the average user will immediately think of when naming companies that produce motherboards.

However, everyone who owns a motherboard is likely to own a bit of Foxconn, as they are one of the handful of companies that produce all the parts that other 'boards are made of. If you've ever wondered why things like RAM slots and PCI-e slots look the same, that's why. It's almost a guarantee that you've either got a Lotes CPU Socket or, yes indeed, a Foxconn one.

So it's only natural that they'd take what they do best and instead of supplying another company, they build their own. Most of these Foxconn boards fly under the radar, but there is definitely a cult following. Mention the X48 BlackOps in the right company and you'll soon be left in no doubt about some peoples feelings.

Of course it hasn't all been sweetness and light, with the X58 Bloodrage and X58 Flaming Blade being solid but unspectacular offerings. So how has the move to LGA1155 and the P67 chipset gone? We will soon find out as today we look at the P67A Rattler.

Not a bad board but overpriced IMHO. The Sabretooth is still the best £150 P67 board. Quote

I like how far apart the PCI-E slots are. My motherboard supports SLI and CrossfireX , but the slots are so close together that the top GPU gets startved of air.Quote

Not a bad idea, because I know alot of builders who choose the rampage just for the scheme. I wish I had money to burn like that. Id probably have the assassin by now.Quote
