Foxconn 6150K8MA-8EKRS BIOS
Man the controls!

  

  

The WinFast 6150K8MA-8EKRS' BIOS is relatively simple by today's standards. You're given control over boot settings, motherboard safety features such as CPU fan failure and CPU overheating, as well as the ability to turn off some of the board's integrated peripherals. The Frame Buffer size option allows you to set how much memory will be allocated for the on-board video, however when using a discreet graphics card, this feature will not be used. Some decent overclocking options are available, allowing you to raise HTT clock, change RAM timings, and set CPU and VDIMM voltages. But don't expect to max out your ram though, as the DIMM voltage option only goes up to 2.85v. Also, while you are able to change most of your memory timings manually, there is no option to specify 1T or 2T command rates. The options offered by the WinFast 6150K8MA-8EKRS will provide for some level of overclocking, but don't expect to set any kind of records. Of course, that is not what this board was designed for anyway.
