The C51XE is Foxconns's nForce 500 series. The C51CEM2AA is the high-end model, which is based on the nForce 590 SLI chipset. Hence it can be considered over average even today. A four phase voltage regulator is powerful enough to operate AMD's new Phenom processor and there are multiple interfaces and features to please enthusiast users. However, we only found a BIOS version, which is already nine months old. Hence we were not able to operate a Phenom processor on this motherboard.
