Non-standard settings were not tested for operability. Using standard desktop components is less costly than nano-ITX platforms with all laptop-grade gear. This board is more likely to be suitable for a work computer. We have made the effort of listening to this motherboard in various modes using a passive CPU cooler and registered no foreign sounds in the supply system. In order to cool the chipset Foxconn engineers have chosen a traditional scheme, which can be found on many boards with AMD G chipset.

The board successfully reverted to default settings in cases of excessive overclocking, no problems there.

This choice of components is quite good. About Us Employment Privacy Policy. Most people choose the MicroATX form factor when building an entertainment machine, it’s small enough to get tucked away next to a HDTV, and big enough to work with standard computer hardware, videocards and fixconn.

Backbone of an Affordable Desktop PC.

Foxconn A690GM2MA-RS2H – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket AM2 – AMD 690G

It is important to realize that overclocking performance varies by motherboard and is, to some extent, an individual characteristic of each specific unit.

In addition, the set contains Fox LiveUpdate for updating the BIOS automatically with the ability to search for a new version on the manufacturer’s web-site. The board’s size is x mm standard microATXand it is attached to the chassis using 9 screws.

This board can house such a card just as well as any full-sized would.

The Foxconn model was not designed for such enthusiasts. Privacy policy and Terms of Use. An antivirus suite Norton Internet Security is also included. IDE, Floppy and the main ATX power connector are placed on the right hand side of the memory slots which makes keeping cables away from the other 690v easy.


This platform features integrated video, and has done wonders to wrestle marketshare away from nVIDIA core logic. RAM is set amdd using multiplier correction to the standard frequency for the modules being used, unless the manufacturer specifies methods for improving memory overclocking, in which case their effectiveness is also explored.

CPU multiplier and core voltage adjustment as well as HT bus multiplier options are all missing. The thee-channel CPU supply impulse voltage stabilizer uses 3 field transistors per channel, 5 OST capacitors of microfarad and 4 Rubycon capacitors of am each.

The board has the necessary wiring for a FireWire controller. The trump card for a computer based entertainment system is its ability 690t do other things, whether that be stream audio from internet radio, act as an MP3 workstation or allow you to surfing the internet for videos of your favorite shows to play back on the television.

Yet the low overclocking potential was somewhat disappointing. The HTPC revolution is moving along nicely and with broad support from hardware manufacturers, things look like they’re about to kick into high gear. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.


Foxconn AGM2MA-8KRS2H – a Motherboard Based on AMD G (Socket AM2) Chipset

For this reason, it is impossible for us, and any other review, to determine the overclocking potential of any board with megahertz precision.


Using standard desktop components is less costly than nano-ITX platforms with all laptop-grade gear. Compatibility with 3-pin connector fans is provided. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method.

Foxconn AGM2MA-RS2H AMD G Motherboard Review –

This test also assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc. It’s foxcobn screams home theatre capabilities, but Foxconn have built the AGM2MA-RS2H motherboard more as a integrated motherboard for boring old desktop work than anything else.

The board deserves praise for having a carefully soldered analogue codec wiring bundle, which is situated in the lower-left corner. Non-standard settings were not tested for operability. This board is more likely to be suitable for a work computer. The layout rightfully deserves to be rated as perfect. But now it has decided to join the majority supporting the new AMD G.

Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: The latter is especially vexing, because overclocking of inexpensive motherboards is usually restricted by the board’s inability to operate at a higher HT clock rate. Integrated motherboards are good that way; cheap to build into a PC, and focconn enough to accommodate a mid-level or high end videocard as requirements mature.

Another positive feature is the quite rarely seen hardware BIOS write-protection with the use of a jumper.
