FOXCONN BlackOps X48 Motherboard

Synthetic 3D Benchmarks

Cinebench 10 logo
Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to guage the performance of the entire PC system in both single-core and multi-core modes. Testing was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average created from the remaining 3 results.


3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.

Results Observations
The extra bandwidth of DDR3 memory used on both the Foxconn BlackOps and Rampage Extreme doesn't seem to carry much weight when it comes to Cinebench and 3DMark, with many of the results only being slightly better than the DDR2 based Blitz Formula SE. Interestingly, the only real major difference appears to be during the OpenGL test

OC3D were given the opportunity to have a look at the Foxconn BlackOps motherboard and put it through its paces.

It seems as slick as I thought it might have been. U`d really need to want one, and perhaps be a non-asus-fanboi, to go out and purchase it. The price is very high imo, and they do throw in a very very good package to help ease the wallet-pain.

Bios looks nice. Like the sound of the dual bios thing - now if u happened to completely screw the one bios via an update or something, can u flush it by booting to the other one ? Or flash it from the other one ? - now that`d be something special.

I`m curious about the fan mount on the nb. It blows down into the box... and the air goes where ? Down the pipe ? Out screw holes ?

I dunno tho, if ur hell-bent on the package as a whole and don`t want to pay £146 for a mobo that no1 in the western world has reviewed yet (even tho it`s been out for weeks and every1 is avoiding them like the plague - even out in Australia now ), then sink the extra £110.

Excellent review PV, tis a great package either way.Quote

Hi Rast, and thanks for the feedback.

The package as you say is immense, and certainly makes the product as a whole stand out from the rest. I mean who else includes trim-pots ready for voltage modification and and a dry ice attachment for a NB cooling block lol. They (Foxconn) actively encourage users to clock the nuts off the thing.

Pricing is extremely high for both the UK and AUS, but prices are considerably more sedate in the US. So if you really wanted one as part of the ultimate bench rig then you can certainly save some money that way (customs/import duties may apply to UK though).

The fan attachment blows directly onto the cooling channels in the bottom of the block and the warm air escapes the best it can - screw holes or blow-back through the fan itself. The fan doesn't actually cover the whole of the block due to the fan shroud being square and the block being rectangular. Admittedly it's not perfect solution, but it's better than a purely passive approach

Thanks again for the comments and I'm glad you enjoyed the review Quote
