FIC VC19 I845E Motherboard Review (Page 1)

Two or three years ago it used to be easy to name every motherboard on the market. These days though, with so many different motherboards to choose from, it's indeed a hard task, in this fierce new market place which we are now blessed with. One of these motherboards is the new FIC VC19 which is based on the I845E chipset for the Pentium 4 platform. The TweakTown labs haven't seen much from FIC lately - Do they have what it takes to bring the VC19 into our hearts as an enthusiast level motherboard? Read on as Cameron "Sov" Johnson gives us an answer.

FIC have been known in the past for their major support of the AMD platform solutions. After all, FIC were the first manufacturer to ever have an AMD board on the market, remember the SD11? Slot A, AMD 750 Irongate chipset beauty. Granted it had a few flaws but this was the start for FIC...

FIC prefer to stick their board towards the value end of the midstream sector of the motherboard industry providing fairly basic motherboards to the market. FIC has stayed away from Intel Pentium 4 with RDRAM based solutions, as FIC see them as a "Waste of time." Intel's release of the I845 chipset has seen FIC start to produce some Pentium 4 solutions from their base. Today we have been lucky enough to receive one for testing.
