Last, under the same room temperature 21℃ and over-clocking of CPU OC 4.7GHz, the temperature of MOSFET is measured by temperature-measured software.  The performance is pretty good compare to others X79- standby 44.7℃ and burning 83.6℃, which is contributed to heat sink since most of X79 motherboards will over 80℃ while over-clocking.

I personally suggest emphasizing heat dissipation when over-clocking.

The following product review of X79 will also measure the temperature of the hardware as reference.

FOXCONN Quantum Force Quantumian-1


  1. Quantum Force possesses artistic exterior packing and high-end standard materials
  2. Japanese 100% solid capacitor embedded POWER/RESET/CMOS Reset button and debug light.
  3. Up to 4 X PCI-E X16 which effectively level up 3D performance.
  4. Outstanding over-clocking performance which only requires 1.286V when 4.7GHzand DDR3 2400
  5. Special OC Switch Button design to directly provide over-clocking request.
  6. Dual gigabit LAN, 2xeSATA and PWM 14-phase


  1. To suggest add the selection of DRAMIT in BIOS
  2. To install the current trend of motherboard market-UEFI BIOS
  3. To improve the FOXCONN MB brand visibility and channel

It has been 3 years for Intel to update the previous high-end product line X58 chipset of LGA 1366.
It is expected that the structure of LGA 2011 would be market for at least 2-3years which is longevity than Intel lower-end product line.  However, theoretically, high-end chipset performs much better than others. Quad DDR3 and the bandwidth of Dual PCI-E X13 are the most featured strengths.
Besides, CPU supports 6C12T which is lack from middle-end LGA1155.

Though X79 belongs to high-end product line, it segmented by entry level, middle-end and high-end based on price.

The price of FOXCONN Quantumian-1 is around USD$275 which possesses the entry price of X79 but performs as same as middle-end X79, USD$330. It indirectly promotes the C/P of Quantumian-1.

Quantumian-1 performs quiet outstanding. CPU 4.7GHz / DDR3 2400 could be achieved by stable voltage. Besides, it is a steal to have 4 X PCI-E X16 under this price. On top of that, the color and materials of motherboard meets the standard of high-end product line.

It would be better if BIOS update could add UEFI interface and 1T selection in the near future.
In recent years, the selectable motherboard brands become less and less. It would be great if FOXCONN could continuously roll-out more Quantum Force product line and to have more products to support more models. To populate more high-end and various FOXCONN product line would provide numerous benefits for hard-core users.
