    Default The Episode III of X58 war-The Foxconn Quantum Force BloodRage locked and loaded!!

    FOXCONN started to develop high-end motherboard since 2007.
    They use different code name for each of their High-end products for having a higher brand awareness.
    Such like they named their P35 motherboard as “MARS” and “Blackops” as their X48. So on and so on.

    This time they launch their brand new product of Intel X58, so-called the Highest-end chipset of Intel.
    Blood Rage is the code name of Quantum Force series X58 motherboard. It sounds so gamer-centric and full of vigor.

    First of all, I like to show the packing outlook to you guys.
    Look similar to other brand’s highest-end motherboard packing.
    But I found that Foxconn Quantum Force packing has a lot improvement than before models.


    The inside box accessories,
    Users manual, installation guide and other relative information.


    Here are all the cables, which likes SATA cable with the right angle design.
    Some connectors, IO shield, NB additional fan and the water block…etc.


    BloodRage bundles with the audio daughter card they called “Sonar X-Fi” audio card.
    They provides 2 different ways for NB cooling: the water block and a container for LN2.

    Foxconn Quantum Force BloodRage
    The main colors of it are Black and Red, this color matching seems to be one of the best looking in market.
    I like something clear and stylish.






    The lower left of the board :
    It features with 4 x PCIe x16 slots
    (supports 2 x 16X or 4 x 8X, also supports both ATI Crossfire and Nvidia SLI or PhyX card)
    1 x PCIe X1 slot
    1 x PCI slot

    The lower right part of the board :
    It features with :
    6 x SATAII (ICH10R, supports RAID 0/1/5/10)
    4 x SATAII ( JmicronR322, supportsRAID 0/1/JBOD)
    1 x IDE
    Dual BIOS, on board power & reset buttom and Debug LED...


    The upper right part:
    It features:
    3 dimms which supports 133/1600/1800, the maximums capacity can be up to 12GB
    BloodRage features 3 dimms design which’s different from others in market.
    I heard that is a Intel’s suggestion, all about a good DDR3 performance.
    The left hand side is the 24pin power input.


    The upper left part:
    Although this is now a LGA1366 socket here, but they intended to reserved a LGA 775 mounting hole here for users to keep their 775 heat sink.
    This is Quite a thoughtful design for users. For the moment, Intel has 920/ 940/ 965extreme processor, which can be supported by Blood Rage.
    The board provided total 14phases Hybrid PWM for CPU’s power supplying.
    The special thing is they put them together when it is operating.


    IO rear panel part:
    8 x USB2.0 ports
    1 x IEEE1392a
    2 x Gigabit LAN ports, which supports Teaming Function as well
    2 x eSATA
    The black button is the clear CMOS function button

    BloodRage NB/ SB and Mosfets heat sink modules
    That Red button, they called “Force Reset” button. What you have to do is press the button and the system will shut down and reboot itself.
    And it seems some friendly design between power button 4secs reset and clear CMOS function.


    Ha, there is a print logo on SB


    The board features 3phases PWM for dimms part.
    I think it might improve the stability while the system is in OC status.


    They designed a 4 in 1 Quantum cooler for Blood Rage’s NB.
    The default mode is the passive air cooling, 2nd is active cooling which means they provides a fan for it.
    This pictures shows the NB apart from the copper base.

    The 3rd way is water cooling
    Now It equips with the bundle water block.
    The bottom is also made by copper.


    The last way is for LN2 or dry ice cooling, a aluminum made container.


    Another unique selling point for X58: 3 channels DRAM, the bandwidth is 2 times to the ordinary one.
    6GB kit in 3-channel DDR3 1866…

    BloodRage boot-up screen


    BIOS main option screen


    The voltage and ratio settings are within Quantum BIOS section.

    CPU Feature


    DDR3 timing setting pages, XMP(Extreme memory profile) are here.


    The voltage part:
    CPU Core Voltage +10~1260mV(CPU maximum 2.52875V)
    CPU VTT Voltage +10~1260mV
    DRAM Voltage 1.50~2.86V(after1.60V, the interval is 0.01V)
    CPU Vdroop Compensation.
    That is a function for CPU to maintain a stability environment when CPU is in a heavy voltage loading status.


    Every steps of the DDR3 parts are so “fine tune” like,
    X58:IOH core Voltage. 1.10 ~ 2.36V(interval is only 0.02V)

    The Backup slots provided 8 different « slots » for users to load and save their OC settings.
    Foxconn Features provides various functions.


    Hardware Monitor


    Test bed info
    CPU: Intel Core i7 965 Extreme
    MB: FOXCONN Quantum Force Blood RAGE
    DRAM: CORSAIR Dominator 2GBX3 DDR3 1866C9D
    VGA: MSI R4870X2-T2D2G-OC
    HD: SAMSUNG 250GB
    POWER: Corsair HX1000W Modular Power Supply
    Cooler: Thermaltake V1 AX/JETART Nano Diamond/Lubic

    some kinds of application.


    Aegis Panel
    A software monitor for OC and various hardware statuses monitoring…you can manage the voltage that you desire.
    That the OC panel deck is a optional item.
    It is based on a hardware design, what I mean is it can adjust the HW directly.
    While your PC is running some program, it can adjust your voltage, FSB, memory simultaneously.


    A funny option: Fox log, users can change the boot-up screen by their own.


    It accept any graph file that are 640 x 480, JPG/BMP.

    DRAM part.
    Corsair Dominator 2GBX3 DDR3 1866 C9D
    Match with X58 it can be DDR3 1866 CL9 9-9-24 1.65V


    The new generation Corsair AirFlow is intended to be designed for 3-channels DDR3, and also it’s best for maximum 6-dimms with a best heat dissipation.
    It looks like a high-end level quality design.


    DDR3 1862 CL9 9-9-241T, BIOS 1.6V
    SP2004 3 X Blend mode, 5,79G with a full loading but stable.


    DDR3 1871 CL8 8-8-24 1T, BIOS 1.65V
    SP2004 3 X Blend mode, 5.70G with full loading status.
