The software bundle for devices configuring and monitoring on the WinFast NF4UK8AA-8EKRS consists of NVIDIA’s programs developed for the nForce4 Ultra chipset and of Foxconn’s own utilities. In our earlier reviews we’ve already discussed in details NVIDIA’s part of the bundle which includes nTune, nvMixer, nvRAID and Network Access Manager software tools.
Now let’s take a look at what Foxconn has to offer:
This program allows changing the picture the mainboard outputs during the POST procedure.
This utility can re-flash the mainboard’s BIOS from Windows. The program can take the new BIOS code from a file or from the manufacturer’s website.
This is a hardware monitoring utility. It allows keeping track of the system parameters like temperatures, fan speeds and voltages. It can also warn the user when a parameter goes beyond its regular range. This utility can also control the FSB frequency from inside the operating system.
Among the third-party utilities you receive with Foxconn mainboards there is a good personal Norton Internet Security 2005 firewall.
