Foxconn F1 motherboard prototype, a socket 775 board featuring four PCI Express x16 slots allowing CrossFireX using an Intel chipset, water-cooling to cool down the chipset and the voltage regulator and a thermoelectric cooler (Peltier) to cool down the north bridge chip.

"During CES 2008 Foxconn showed us a prototype of a motherboard based on a non-revealed Intel chipset (probably Intel's forthcoming P45 chipset) that will have four PCI Express x16 slots, allowing four video cards under CrossFireX using an Intel solution. It is not only that, this prototype - internally known as F1 - will come with a water-cooling solution to cool down the chipset and the transistors from the voltage regulator circuit, and below the north bridge block it has a thermoelectric cooler (TEC, a.k.a. "Peltier")."
