Foxconn MARS motherboard reviewed

AnandTech has taken a look at the new MARS motherboard from Foxconn - this motherboard is based on the Intel P35.
We have to admit that Foxconn spent some time on the layout of this board, although the color scheme is more reminiscent of an American July Fourth celebration than the dark black and blood red colors on the box and documentation materials. In fact, other than the Foxconn name, the black board and cooling arrangement almost seems more like an ASUS product, which certainly isn't a bad thing if they can provide that level of performance. The board was a snap to install in our Antec P180 and Cooler Master 830 cases with most connections easily reached. The board features a six-phase voltage regulator system and six-layer PCB and provided excellent stability throughout testing. The Foxconn MARS features 100% use of Conductive Polymer Aluminum Solid Capacitors.
Check out the review over here. The reviewer says the motherboard shows strong overall performance, a nice layout and good features but that the BIOS still needs some polishing.
