Question about Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 Motherboard

1 Answer

What's the best cpu that actually works with this board?

I've had this for a year. Bought it strictly as a movie player for the living room. It can play DVD's, but is horrible at any higher defnition video, regardless of codec/player.

The CPU (one of the VERY few that actually work with this board) is a Prescott D336 Celeron. It was 2.8GHz, but I even overclocked it all the way to a stable 4.2GHz and the playback isn't any better.

Can anyone say with any authority what the best CPU is for this board?

    No, its an SLI board, but the GPU is not the problem. The bottleneck is the CPU, trust me.

    For future readers, I will add that I have an 8400GS, an X800XL, and an 8800GTS. It does not matter which card is in it. 1080P is out of the question and 720P (or even 1280x544) cannot keep up and uses 100% CPU usage almost all the time. Not only does this cause stuttering video, but also causes loss of sync in audio, which is moot at this point because the audio signal also stutters on and off continually (SPDIF to surround receiver).

    I had the nonsync problem with video once on a build and keep switching video cards w/o success. It happend to me after I had changed out and upgraded the cpu on the machine. The solution for me was to reinstall windows. Seems something was confused between the two different CPUs even though it worked,just not properly. I also am wondering why ,since the foxconn website states that you have two video card slots that you did not say that you were running the two matching cards tied together, the 8800 being most common? 
    Sorry I had not been more helpful.

    Your motherboard link below:

    Two PCIe16 slots. Are you running two cards, tied together and which two? I am running two 7600 NVIDA on my Foxconn motherboard , but have not HD. the ultra gamer I built my son last year runs two 9600 video cards.

    A little confused here. HD and or all video get a lot better with upgraded video cards,not CPUs. It ther not a video slot on this foxcon model?

Yes, they can. Another possibility, however, is the jumper settings could have been accidently changed when the battery was changed. Inside the remote is usally four little switches in a row, each can be on or off (zero or one). These need to be set to the same values as the receivers in the fans.

Your player supports MTV files encoded at 160 x 128 and 25 fps. Videos may need to be encoded with the included software for device playback.
The video converter software can be downloaded from here:

Simply click on "Video Converter", save file and then launch it. I hope if you use this program you can enjoy movies on your player.
Good luck. Thanks.

1. check your display settings for the best possible screen resolution for your laptop.
2. the new CPU that is installed is defaulted at 1080p resolution and is to strong for the video graphics card that is on the mother board which is possibly 1280X740 . Being a laptop and the video graphics is built into the mother board therefore possibly not compatible with the new processor.
Blue ray video is ultra high resolution such as 1920X1080 HDTV

Darn, that sounds like a time machine!

Whatever it is, though, it's hardly related to the TV if it only shows during movie playback and not in live TV.

I'd look at your player,

Doesnt do anything,but radio

backup the drive and all folders to your PC.
Then try Formating the Drive. create new folders, i.e music et,c.
** Please note:- The Chinese have very sneaky ways, of making these look bigger in size, than they actually are.
So if you,ve got a 4 gig, and when formatted becomes a 2 Gig.
Thats the true memory storage size.
Try this you guys, good luck.

Play dvd movies

Its not your CPU speed that burns or Views DVD its the actual player in your computer. You may have a CD player in your computer but can it actually read DVD? can it burn DVD???. If it can then you will need the software to play it back Windows media player wont play back DVD unless you have download the updated codex for it. One of the best software players is InterVideo Win DVD.

FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1
