Default ???? help

i ordered this mobo:
Foxconn N570SM2AA-8EKRS2H SKT AM2 nForce 570 SLI SATAII 7.1audio ATX

and i received it in a winfast box with winfast writing all other it

all the specs are the same and it looks the same so why is it a different make
or is winfast the same as this make?

No, I think winfast is the 'model name', I think it must have a builtin Winfast graphics chipset or something. Just search 'foxconn winfast' in google (urg, how many times do I find this kind of information for other people). Anyway, something like that.

now I want 100 lines of:
'google is my friend. I will use google more'

Take a look at these pics from newegg:
Newegg.com - Buy Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

It says Foxconn, yet the pictures show a WinFast box, and writing on the motherboard. I don't think it's something to be worried about. Maybe Foxconn manufactured it, but sold under WinFast's name. Also if you google the Foxconn N570SM2AA, you'll see that it has WinFast, in with it's name too.
