Foxconn motherboards no more?

Rumour Mill: Foxconn Mobo's no more?Whispers within the industry are being heard about about Foxconn and their future as a high end motherboard manufacturer. According to the rumours Foxconn are looking to scale back their operations and the end user manufacturing division may get the chop. This would be a blow to the high end user as Foxconn have brought some great motherboards to the market.

Foxconn was founded in 1974, and their end user Foxconn branded motherboard manufacture is only a small part of their business operations. They produce some well known products, such as the iPod and iPhone for Apple, the PS2 and PS3 for Sony as well as producing Intel CPU's. We do not know the reasons why Foxconn would consider ceasing production of their motherboards, and if the rumours prove to be true it will be a sad day for enthusiasts.

Hey guys. Just ordered 3 of these for a 360mm radiator, they are the white 110cfm 120mm silverstone fans. Usually well over £10 but on sale for £5 at afterhours.co.uk. Thought some people on here might be interested.

Just done a lil research and while even the 122s are cheaper it seems the 121s are better... Also a little better than the 123s. Quite tempted to buy a few.. Would get rid of the controller and use my own though.

That said, Yates are still meant to be better.

Nice price though :)

I think the silverstone fans look nicer though, and they're really going to help pull off my black and white case theme once I get all my money sorted for my next project! :D

They are awfully loud at full whack (where they shift 110CFM). I bought 3 months ago to replace the fans in a NZXT Lexa but instantly chucked them in the toot box after hearing how loud they are.

Could a fan controller not deal with the noise? or were they even too loud at that speed?

At 1000-1200 RPM they are much less intrusive, but the CFM drops rapidly and theres better alternatives in that area (Xilence RedWings or Scythe S-Flex for example).
