Overview

Part of the Quantum Force series of motherboards specially designed for gaming and overclocking audiences, MARS is based on the Intel® P35 chipset and supports Intel® Core™2 Quad and Core™ 2 Duo processors. Taking overclocking to a new level, MARS enables you to consistently extract more performance from your system. With the advanced 'Gladiator' BIOS you can build and fine-tune PC systems that deliver exceptional performance gains over standard P35 chipset solutions, whilst remaining completely stable thanks to numerous design features which keep temperatures low and maximise overclocking headroom. For gamers, overclockers and those who just want more performance per dollar, this motherboard is the ultimate solution for unleashing the power of today's Intel® processor technologies.

Supports latest Intel® Core™2 Quad and Core™2 Duo processors up to 1600MHz FSB (via overclocking), along with Intel® next-generation 45nm CPUs Multimedia enthusiasts, prepare to enthuse. Bring quad-core performance to your desktop with the Intel® Core™2 Quad processor. It's the ideal engine for highly threaded entertainment applications and highly productive multitasking.  

The Intel® P35 Express Chipsets support the latest multi-core processors up to FSB 1600 (via overclocking)MHz, including the upcoming 45nm platform, with its record breaking performance and greater energy efficiency. Intel® P35 chipset includes optimized system memory capabilities, chipset over-speed protection removed for maximum overclocking, and Intel® Turbo Memory technology - providing faster boot and application load times and additional power savings.  

Dual-channel DDR2 1066(oc**)/800/667MHz memory, 8GB. Max.
Enjoy a faster, smoother, more productive computing experience, with DDR2 memory clocked up to 1066MHz!
 

2* PCIe x16 (run x16 + x4 mode) with CrossFire™ Support ATI CrossFire™ technology harnesses the power of two ATI graphics cards simultaneously to deliver ltra-smooth 3D graphics with more graphical detail than ever before. Ideal for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.  

7.1 Channel HD Audio
8 channels of High Definition Surround sound turn your PC into a true multi-media centre; enjoy movies, music and games greater audio quality. Intel HD Audio delivers multiple audio channels in your PC so you can listen to two different streams
simultaneously in two seperate rooms.
 
 

 

Gigabit LAN interface provides for high-speed network connections, with a data transfer rate up to 1000Mb/s - ideal for streaming multi-media content online.  

RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, JBOD with Intel® Matrix Storage Technology
Easy configuration of RAID disk set-ups for improved performance; separate performance data (e.g. games), and valuable data (e.g. O/S) for best performance and security solution.

Intel® Rapid Recover enables easy and automatic back-up of data , with the capability to immediately recovery lost files.

 
 

 

Rear-mounted eSATA connector provides super-fast and convenient interface to a range of external storage devices.  

2* IEEE1394a (FireWire) connectors provide convenient and fast 400Mb/s data transfer  

6* SATAII connectors provide for fast, reliable and adaptable storage capability.  

A total of 12* USB2.0 ports (4 rear-mounted) allow you to connect a huge range of devices.  

Windows Vista™ Premium Certified
Microsoft Windows Vista™ is designed to dramatically improve the computing experience of every kind of PC user—from people at home who use their PCs for simple web browsing, to business people who must organize and act on large volumes of data, to scientists who routinely perform complex mathematical analysis.
 

Foxconn's 100% SOLID Capacitor design further improves component reliability, by replacing electrolytic capacitors with solid versions; this removes the risk of capacitor failure damaging the PCB and surrounding components, whilst improving overall system performance and stability. Solid capacitors are much more durable than standard electrolytic versions, typically lasting around 6 times longer and withstanding higher operating temperatures.  
 

 

Advanced Windows-based overclocking and system control utility.  
 

 

Smart fan control for NB, CPU and system fans, adjust fan speed according to system loading. Provides additional 2 fan headers for extra cooling capability.  

Quickly and effectively removing heat from the motherboard, CoolPipe uses a proprietary liquid system to absorb and remove heat from the critical VRM, North and South Bridge chipset areas. By ensuring rapid and effective heat transfer, system performance and overclocking potential is greatly improved.  
 

 

Unrivalled tuning capability, thanks to robust and detailed BIOS menu that provides more options for overclocking.  
 

 

Conveniently store OC settings in 4 different profiles, and easily switch between them. In event of OC failure, will automatically revert to last OC profile.  

If OC attempt fail, will automatically recover last good setting, to ensure system protection.  

Easily reset CMOS on the workbench, when recovering from failed overclock attempt.  

On/off/reset buttons are located directly on the motherboard PCB, so you can easily start and reset your system whilst testing it on the workbench.  
 

 

Quickly and easily update your system and drivers through the easy Windows-based FoxLiveUpdate utility.  

Colour-coded EasyPin headers enable quick connection of internal devices.
