The board is also built with obvious care and quality components, which is not a surprise when you consider the quality reputation that Foxconn enjoys in the motherboard market. Peripheral expansion isn’t limited to PCI Express, though. While we’re talking power, notice the four-pin Molex connector on the bottom left top left in the picture of the board. Apart from a handful of taller capacitors, all the board-mounted components around the CPU socket are shorter than the heat sink retention bracket. Foxconn could have augmented the board’s audio capabilities by using a bit audio controller like the Envy24PT, but instead they’ve just slapped on a eight-channel Realtek codec and called it a day.

However, given the fact that all nForce4 boards seem to share the same chipset clearance issue, I have to wonder if such a move is even feasible. Still, enthusiasts look beyond performance benchmarks and spec sheets. The last thing I want is one or TWO more tiny fans just on the mobo to worry about failing Hey guys, go vote!

This is an important feature that differentiates AMD from the competition. For starters, the four-pin auxiliary power connector is located a little too close to the CPU nf4um8aa for my liking.


The nForce4 Ultra chipset is actively cooled. In addition, Foxconn is one of the world’s largest motherboard manufacturers.

I’d much rather see the NF4UK8AA equipped with a taller passive chipset cooler, but given the board’s layout, such a configuration would only be compatible with graphics cards that extend less than an inch from the end of the PCI-E x16 slot.

Board layouts are improving, and the Foxconn Winfast is another board with a decent layout. The specs We’ll only be highlighting the NF4UK8AA’s more notable specs, nf4uk8aa if you’re unfamiliar with the nForce4 Ultra chipset’s features, you should thumb through our in-depth review of the chipset.

Additional connectors are well located along board edges and out of the way of the slot area. That is all except CPU ratios or multipliers. Foxconn makes motherboards for many companies, and counts Intel to be among their clients. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile. Foxconn’s solution to the x16 clearance problem is a low-profile fan that’s just short enough to tuck under longer PCI Express graphics cards.

This plug placement creates unnecessary cable clutter around the CPU cooler, which could impede air flow through a case’s rear exhaust fan. Socket based Athlon 64 processors. The prospect of a less expensive nForce4 Ultra implementation is certainly tempting, especially when the chipset generally dictate’s a motherboard’s feature set and performance.

Apart from a handful of taller capacitors, all nf4uk8az board-mounted components around the CPU socket are shorter than the heat sink retention bracket.
