The nForce4 Ultra’s robust, er, array of storage options is its second defining feature. Like every other board in this roundup, Foxconn uses the ALC audio codec. Still, enthusiasts look beyond performance benchmarks and spec sheets. Just don’t ask me why the Serial ATA ports are pink. The dull brown board and multi-colored ports and slots are enough to make Carson Kressley cringe.

Realtek appears to be doing a very good job of convincing Asian manufacturers of the features and value represented by the ALC Unfortunately, the clearance picture isn’t so pretty around the board’s PCI Express x16 slot, which is less than an inch from the nForce4 Ultra chip.
Foxconn has placed the 4-pin 12V power connector between the CPU and the rear panel connectors, which can present some cabling challenges in some case designs. The nForce4 Ultra chipset is actively cooled.

Fortunately, the board’s layout is much better than its fashion sense, but there are still a few problem areas. DancinJack Hey guys, go vote! Jeff Kampman This is clearly a yield-maximizing move for 7 nm.
Foxconn throws in a quartet of PCI slots that should come in handy as we wait for PCI Express audio, TV tuner, wireless networking, and storage products to become available. Jeff Kampman This is clearly a yield-maximizing move for 7 nm.

In addition, Foxconn is one of the world’s largest motherboard manufacturers. Customize The Tech Report While there are certainly winfasst areas that can be improved upon in the layout of the NF4UK8AA, it is a pretty easy board to work with overall.
The nForce4 Ultra’s robust, er, array of storage options is its second defining feature.
Charting the Mainstream by Wesley Fink on July 5, Samsung shows off Infinity Flex foldable smartphone display. The nForce4 Nf4uka8a AC’97 audio is about as basic as it gets.
The quality of Foxconn boards is well-established, so it should come as no surprise hf4uk8aa Foxconn is now interested in marketing their own branded motherboards. Apart from a handful of taller capacitors, all the board-mounted components around the CPU socket are shorter than the heat sink retention bracket.
Hey guys, go vote! Samsung shows off Infinity Flex foldable smartphone display. We crave intelligent layouts, ample overclocking options, and robust BIOSes filled with tweaking options. Just don’t ask me why the Serial ATA ports are pink. I’d much rather see the NF4UK8AA equipped with a taller passive chipset cooler, but given the board’s layout, such a configuration would only be compatible with graphics cards that extend less than an inch from the end of the PCI-E x16 slot.
The specs We’ll only be highlighting the NF4UK8AA’s more notable specs, so if you’re unfamiliar with the nForce4 Ultra chipset’s features, you should thumb through our in-depth review of the chipset.

The board is also built with obvious care and quality components, which is not a surprise when you consider the quality reputation that Foxconn enjoys in the motherboard market.
For starters, the four-pin auxiliary power connector is located a little too close to the CPU socket for my liking. If Foxconn intends to sell to AMD enthusiasts, then they need to quickly make the same options available to buyers that competitors routinely provide.
