X58 Roundup: Seven $200-300 Core i7 Boards
By

The Renaissance has wide enough frequency and voltage ranges in small enough setting increments to push most hardware combinations to the limit, though PCIe clock isn’t adjustable.

The Fox Central Control Unit menu provide basic clock control along with several submenus for CPU features, memory timings and voltage levels

Manual memory tuning mode requires adjustment of every available timing, since individual settings have no auto-detect feature. Voltage control is also significantly less elaborate than the menus found in several competing products.

We didn’t find any tuning software for Windows, but Foxconn was kind enough to include Norton Internet Security on the Renaissance support DVD.
