“Foxconn is going to try with their latest addition to their high-end board sector (known as Quantum Force) for enthusiasts and overclockers with this one being called the Flaming Blade. Unfortunately there is no pricing available from Newegg yet, as this board is extremely new, so let’s hope its performance warrants the wait for it to arrive on the market.
Today we are pitting the Flaming Blade against the already tested Blood Rage and the ASUS P6T Deluxe OC Palm Edition board which is our test bed setup.”

They have also released a hot new X58 bearing the moniker Flaming Blade, which TweakTown is pitting against it’s older brother and meekly named ASUS OC Palm. Does the fierce naming scheme translate into savage performance, or can ASUS perform some sleight of hand? Read on to see if this ~$200 board deserves it’s handle.
