What is being tested when I select "Mainboard Test"?
Logic Supply wants to ensure that a mainboard is fully operational when it arrives at its destination. Occasionally, there are unforeseen hardware failures due to a manufacturer's defect, incompatibilities with components, etc.
To avoid unexpected hardware failures, Logic Supply now offers individual mainboard testing. The procedure aims to eliminate the frustration of receiving a product that has a manufacturer's defect.
We check and confirm operation of the following:
- LAN, USB, and PS2 ports
- CPU temperature is monitored during extensive testing to determine if the temperature of the system is within the ideal range
- Memory controller undergoes a testing process in order to identify and resolve errors. If customer purchases memory as an attribute of their mainboard we will use this memory for the test.
We also mount and install any mainboard accessories purchased (i.e., daughterboards, low-profile heatsinks, etc.)
After testing, memory will be removed and shipped separately (if purchased with mainboard); all other accessories will be left installed.
If the mainboard accepts a socket processor, and the processor is purchased at the time the order is placed, Logic Supply will install the CPU and heat sink for delivery.
Logic Supply also checks that the mainboard BIOS is the latest version. If the mainboard BIOS is not the latest version, we will update it. The BIOS will be set to what we believe are the optimal settings for that particular mainboard, unless a customer specifies differently. The video will be set to "CRT" unless otherwise specified.
