That’s not a very long list and the options can only satisfy an undemanding user. If you want to control the above-listed parameters from the OS, you can use the SuperStep utility from the SuperUtility suite which Foxconn includes with the reviewed mainboard. Here’s what this utility can do:

  • The Fan tab shows you the speeds of the fans attached to the mainboard. You can also set the minimum rotational speeds of all these fans here.


  • The Voltage tab displays all the system voltages. You can set min and max values for them and if a voltage goes out of the specified range, the system sounds an alarm.


  • The Temperature tab shows the temperature of the CPU and of the air inside the system case. As with the appropriate BIOS option, you can set a max temperature threshold on exceeding which the mainboard emits a warning signal.


  • The Clock tab shows the current FSB, PCI and PCI Express frequencies. You are permitted to change the CPU multiplier (which is going to be locked) and the FSB frequency.


  • The Alarm tab allows you to identify situations when the mainboard will warn you about an emergency.
