Rather than scrapping a perfectly running computer you will want a solid motherboard.

As well as the specifications I provided above, the guide also provides every possible bit of information you need to get started straight away. Finally I do like the space around 661mxplux chipsets.
However finding the Pro version wasn’t a possibility. So in comparison to the competition very fairly priced. Below is a picture ffoxconn everything wired up to give a better perspective than small stock photos.
Foxconn 661MXPlus Easy Installation Manual
However driver installation was alot less pain free than some other boards. This is set to open by default. You would hope this would make the choice a bit easier, however chances are you’re not building a new system and replacing a failed motherboard, perhaps a Gigabyte board like the last few I’ve personally replaced. For the Williamette CPU you will need to set this with a jumper to short. For some of these internal connections you might actually find it easier to leave it to a child, as access to connections is difficult if you have large hands.
The main difference between the Plus board which I am reviewing and the Foxcohn board is sata support. While this doesn’t affect the current user, for other main system users, 2GB could be a hindrance, as well as single channel support.
Foxconn MX Plus Socket
With this board, I had to use tweezers for each wire on the audio block. If you’re currently looking at Socket boards you’ll appreciate the range is limited to less than a few boards. Each other header connection was a bit more difficult to get to than usual. Choose the Plus and you will be limited to two IDE connectors and a floppy connector. For all Celeron’s and Pentium 4 CPU’s Northwood and Prescottnothing apart from a casual glance to check its set on default is required.
Finishing review Compaq Aem: Il just outlay some specifications, that may provide more insight than online sellers offer, with opinions provided.
Since socket isn’t the latest socket form factor, driver support from win98 – winXP, 32bit only, seems to be all that’s on offer here. However I don’t see the need for the division between Plus and Pro, just for the sake of minor board adjustments like the inclusion of sata.
There is alot of breathing room and space especially by the northbridge. If you’ve got a PSU with a freakishly short 4-pin lead, then you might have problems.

This computer has been passed on to a friend, so I’ll check in with them periodically on reliability over the span of time and update this review. However I have given it a good run and testing before handing it to them.

Mac mini running W23k Server – 1. Foxconn MX Plus Socket You may have to register before you can post: Last edited by wh; at The location of the 4-pin CPU connector is a bit different as well. I’m not a large guy, but most of the time I can plug in audio 661kxplus panel leads by hand.
This just makes things a bit more difficult than some other boards. With the Pro, you will also find you have two sata ports available, which would 661mxpluus quite welcome.
