Look what I bought "New"

Recommended Posts

I just bought a New Foxconn Bloodrage X58 LGA 1366 Motherboard :)  I installed an i7 930 and she booted up. I'm a happy camper!

I'll have to update the BIOS for an i7 970 and Ln2 Benching.......

Nice looking board.  I do wonder how many people jump off a building before it assembled?

I Flashed the BIOS (tricky, made me uneasy) for Gulftown CPU's installed my 5.5GHZ i7 970.....she's up and running :) 

This board is sweet, easy overclocking :D

Thanks :) I was surprised when the guy said it's new and never been used.....I bought it!  I installed the rig in a Cooler Master Trooper case, want to break it in before Ln2 :)

Probably the best of the bloorage series.

Convenient cause it has both holes on pcb (775/1366).

Tough board to bench with ... it has rev12 chipset ... and the known 220 fsb wall.

It was a strange board , back in the days ... Too picky with ram modules.

With latest bios it can also play with Xeon Westmere-EP both X-series and E-series.

That's true TASOS... however wasn't it the Bloodrage that broke the 220 fsb wall...

I'll have to find the BIOS they were using....lol

Well, I pulled the GTX 285's and installed the GTX 670''s  :) Ran a few tests to compare.....

There's are the same GTX 670's I ran with Ln2 :)

 And I have more GPU's to play with...old games   lol

True

But only hardware modded ... and with a lot of pci-e

Good luck with your project ... have fun

Damn what a nice find! B| Tough board though...

I recall that the best X58 boards were the R3E and R3E BE. No fsb wall, easy to bench, both boards were flying on LN2! 

As Tasos said, the Bloorage needs to be hardware modded and you also have to use an IDE HDD with really high pcie in order to achieve these FSB numbers.
