Based on our own testing Foxconn deserves a well earned applause. With the Blackops board Foxcon have managed to climb to the top op the enthusiast tree among the very best overclocking boards. Both the design of the board and the accessories urge you to give full throttle when overclocking. We have tested all aspects of the cooling system in this test, and although the heatpipesystem will be ok for passive/aircooling, I would go for the watercooling option and/or ice for the optimum performance. I am also glad the AEGIS software has been updated. It is now a very useful utility when you want to push your hardware to the edge and beyond…

The only real drawback is the price for this monster marvel at around 325?. That is a lot of money to spend on any motherboard, but again we must look at what you get, and for who this board was made. You get one of the very best overclockers on the market, with a sh*tload of useful accessories, That has got to be worth something.
