Foxconn Renaissance X58 Digital Life Motherboard

Packaging and Contents

Packaging

The Foxconn Renaissance is packaged in a bold and highly visible cardboard box with a predominantly black and orange theme. On the front of the box is an image of multimedia devices spinning around the Digital Life logo. On the rear of the box, Foxconn has included a rundown of the prominant features of the motherboard.

Foxconn appears to be taking a leaf out of ASUS' book when it comes to packaging. On the top of the box is a secondary lid that when opened reveals an image of the motherboard itself and additional information about the Foxconn Renaissance's features.

Opening up the box we can see the usual double-walled cardboard box that houses both the motherboard and the included bundle. This method of packaging hardware is proven, and subsequently, should provide maximum protection for the motherboard contained within.

Opening up the secondary box we can see the Foxconn Renaissance motherboard securely situated on top in an anti-static bag. Underneath the motherboard is a secondary box that houses the motherboard bundle.

Opening up the bundle box we were greeted by a mass of SATA and Molex-to-SATA power cables. You would be excused for thinking that Foxconn had a special on them at the moment. As well as the cabling, Foxconn has included a standard array of bits and bobs in the bundle, I have made a list of them for you below:
 
* OEM I/O backplate
* 4x SATA cables
* 6x 4-pin Molex to SATA power cables
* 2x SAS SATA/Power cables
* 1x IDE cable
* Support CD
* Motherboard manual
* Specification summary
* Qualified Memory Vendors list

Will the X58-based Foxconn Renaissance be the shining light for Foxconn's Digital Life multimedia range of motherboards?

I was waiting for the review of this.

Awesome looking board and the northbridge looks epic.

Not a bad looking board. That heatsink is strangeness personified though. Why produce a board that is unlikely to handle the huge heatsinks most people use? Very odd choice.

Like the colour scheme though. As those who've seen my profile can attest lol.

Quite a steep price for such an average overclock. The Bloodrage is only 30 quid more.

This has 6 RAM slots while Bloodrage has only 3.

24GB anyone?

Nice review m8.

Couple of questions for you:

The CPU-Z screeny shows 1.216v. Was this max Vcore you used?

What was the Vdrop/droop like?

Good job on the review Matthew

I would however have the Bloodrage over this any day..

Horses for courses I think. The bloodrage is targeted to a different audience (hardcore benchers) whereas the renaissance is more a workstation based platform.
