This chip is a complete controller, so this motherboard does not use the chipset south bridge chip to control its network interface. Two sockets are yellow and the other two are black. Overclocking In order to evaluate the overclocking capabilities of the board and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed CPU to the highest frequency possible that also allows for stable operation. For this kind of application look for a motherboard with at least 95 dB SNR on its input. It has an ability to signal an alarm when parameter values fall out of the predefined ranges. Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 KHz , dB: In addition, the set contains Fox LiveUpdate for updating the BIOS automatically with the ability to search for a new version on the manufacturer’s web-site.

The thee-channel CPU supply impulse voltage stabilizer uses 3 field transistors per channel, 5 OST capacitors of microfarad and 4 Rubycon capacitors of microfarad each. Of Figure 2 you can see the connectors present on the motherboard rear panel: The Foxconn model was not designed for such enthusiasts. AMD G graphics core runs at MHz and has four pixel shader processors and four vertex shader processors.

Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Non-standard settings were not tested for operability. Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 KHzdB: In particular, even the basic memory timings were not available. However, if lowering Hyper-Transport frequency, for example, doesn’t improve overclocking performance, the default multiplier is used instead.

So you can easily hook an analog 5. Integrated audio support is implemented well. On the audio section, this motherboard has eight channels provided by the chipset together with a Realtek ALC codec. CPU multiplier and core a690gm2ma-8krss2h adjustment as well as HT bus multiplier options are all missing. This model on the manufacturer’s website.

On the audio section capacitors from Teapo Taiwanese are used, and around the board the majority are from Chemicon Japanesewith three solid aluminum capacitors and two smaller caps from Evercon the new name for GSC, a Taiwanese company. The layout rightfully deserves to be rated as perfect.

The board’s size is x mm standard microATXand it is attached to the chassis using 9 screws. Conclusions We were pleased with the board from the technical standpoint and with the way it was equipped.

As it is targeted to digital home PCs, it should have at least one coaxial SPDIF out to enable users to connect the motherboard directly to a home theater receiver using digital connection.

Another positive feature is the quite rarely seen hardware BIOS write-protection with the use of a jumper. The supply voltage stabilizer is enhanced by using chokes with United Chemi-Con capacitors.

It allows connecting 7. We don’t even have to take into account that boards based on integrated chipsets are rarely equipped with graphics cards with bulky cooling systems. As we have mentioned previously, the cause most likely is the inability to lower the HT bus frequency. A690gmm2a-8krs2h is equipped with a low-profile compact heatsink. On the other hand, this motherboard provides full 7.


It has an ability to signal an alarm when parameter values fall out of the predefined ranges. For this reason, it is impossible for us, and any other review, to determine the overclocking potential of any board with megahertz precision.

BioShock Infinite and Metro: An antivirus suite Norton Internet Security is also included. When the integrated graphics card is used, its performance drops a little more in a690gm2ma-8rs2h tests, while the game tests produce equal results.

In contrast to the rest of companies, Foxconn has chosen to use this chipset exclusively for making microATX boards without the support for HDMI, this chipset’s key feature, even in the higher-end versions.

Yet the low overclocking potential fkxconn somewhat disappointing.

More importantly, there is no need to try to raise the clock rate above the a690gm2ma-8kds2h MHzsince the bandwidth of this bus, which is used as a data channel between the CPU and the chipset, is plentiful. Another positive attribute is the compound-covered induction coils in memory and chipset supply circuits. This choice of components is quite good.
