Foxconn P67 Rattler Review and Overclocking

Up Close cont..

Starting at the DIMM end of the Rattler we have two fan headers alongside a diagnostic 7 segment display. There is also the OC button and an up and down arrow for adjusting the BCLK. Below that are the voltage measuring points.

PCI-e ports consist of two PCI-e x16 for graphics cards, three PCI-e x1 and one legacy PCI port for your older devices.

Below those we have the standard USB and audio headers, along with a clear CMOS jumper in one of the least user-friendly places we've seen.

With the Rattler being a B3 revision there are no qualms about the six SATA ports, four SATA II and two SATA 3. It's quite a surprise to see an IDE socket alongside the SATA. By now it's a bit of a relic of a bygone age.

Round the back we have everything we'd expect, with optical out, twin LAN, USB and Firewire ports aplenty.

Not a bad board but overpriced IMHO. The Sabretooth is still the best £150 P67 board. Quote

I like how far apart the PCI-E slots are. My motherboard supports SLI and CrossfireX , but the slots are so close together that the top GPU gets startved of air.Quote
