The C51X installed into our Coolermaster Stacker just like any other ATX motherboard.  First boot was painless and into the BIOS I went to start initial setup.  The BIOS is provided by Phoenix / Award and looks and navigates like any other BIOS.  Foxconn separates themselves in the BIOS area by unlocking dozens of overclocking tweaks normally hidden by most manufacturers.  Below are some standard BIOS screens as well as some of the more advanced features.
