Foxconn Quantum Force X58 BloodRage Motherboard - Test System Setup and Memory Performance

The rumours of Foxconn leaving the motherboard industry seem remote today with the Quantum Force X58 BloodRage; a very impressive piece of kit.

Test System

 

Processor: Intel Core 17 965 @ 3.2GHz (24x 133MHz)

 

Memory: 3x 2GB DDR3-1600 Corsair Dominator (Supplied by Corsair)

 

Hard Disk: Intel X25-M 80GB SSD (Supplied by Intel)

 

Graphics Card: GIGABYTE 9800GX2 1GB (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

 

Cooling: Stock Intel cooling

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista X64 SP1

 

Drivers: Intel INF 9.0.0.1008, Forceware 180.24

 

It's benchmarking time and like clock work we get stuck straight into it. We have the ASUS P6T Deluxe OC Palm and Rampage II as our baseline boards to compare against along with the Foxconn board. So it's all smooth sailing from here.

 

For our stock settings we left the CPU at its default 3.2GHz and used a DDR3 1333MHz memory divider. When we started to push the system we wanted to get the CPU and FSB as high as possible, so lowering the multiplier and raising the FSB while tweaking voltages were the order of the day.

First off, EVEREST gives us a preview of things to come. Memory performance at stock is pretty well even as we would expect. However, the Foxconn board gives us a pretty good score at overclocked speeds. Despite being a lower BLCK, the Uncore and memory multipliers were in a good spot to keep up with the ASUS P6T.
