XFX nForce 630i Socket 775 mATX Motherboard


The XFX 630i comes in the familiar style of packaging that we have come to expect from XFX and their motherboards. The front of the box features an interesting graphic broken up by diamond inserts. The rear of the box includes the motherboard features and specifications.

Removing the outer layer of the packaging reveals the cardboard box that houses the motherboard and included accessories. Opening the box further and we can see the motherboard neatly presented in anti-static bag. The motherboard sits very snugly between the walls of the box and should aleviate any issues arriving from man-handling.

The white envelope that you can see in the top right includes the motherboard manual, the installation CD and a quick start guide. The accessories are hidden away neatly in the rectangular area to the right of the motherboard.
Included in the packaging are:
* 2 x SATA cables
* 1 x I/O plate
* 1 x 4-pin molex to SATA connector
* 1 x IDE HDD cable
* 1 x IDE FDD cable
* User manual
* Installation CD
* Quick start guide
All things considered it isn't a bad bundle, especially for a budget orientated motherboard. The inclusion of an HDMI cable would have been a welcome addition for those who utilise HDMI, but the cost would have ultimately been forwarded onto you, the prospective purchaser.

"During the overclocking phase of this review it is interesting to note that the chipset heatsink was frightfully hot to the touch, and more than likely detrimental to the overall performance of the motherboard. "

when nVidia went from having separate nb & sb on 6xxx IGP to an all in one on 7xxx I'm sure that it became cheaper for them to produce (& hence probably more profitable for them) but it definitely resulted in increased chipset temps.

I've got abit's I-N73HD based on the same chipset here to play with once I acquire a spare CPU.Quote
