In order to evaluate the overclocked system’s stability, we load Windows XP and run performance tests built into WinRAR Tools menu – Benchmark and hardware test for 10 minutes. Not an outstanding result. Besides storing in the CMOS area, in similarity to the expensive boards, one can use an external disk. Taking into consideration that the two companies are more than related, one may wonder why they would release models that are similar and are based on, well, unpopular chipsets under differend brand names. This test also assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc. Finally, the ability to save BIOS settings in 2 profiles is clearly borrowed from the more expensive models.

Compatibility with both 3-pin and 4-pin fans is provided. This unique adapter eliminates the trouble of plugging in one cable at a time, making connection quick and accurate. A special option for setting memory parameters with ECC support stands out.
Board’s form factor is a “narrowed” ATX x mm. PCB color and bundled software versions are subject to change without notice. This utility m22v users the cost and hassle of buying a replacement BIOS chip.
The only minus is the choice of “open” coils in the voltage stabilizer. It is also nice that most sockets on the board have rims, even the socket on the front audio panel.
Rate of revolution increases as temperature goes up and decreases as the temperature goes back to a predefined value.
In certain modes under load they may “squeak”, and such high-pitch noise is audible even in computers with chiset cooling systems. The brand way of placing IDE slots on their side is indeed convenient.

Specifications and features vary by model, and all images are illustrative. The 4 PCI slots are bound to please the owners of “old-style” expansion cards.
Four PCI slots will also please board’s target audience and considering the moderate quality of intergated audio, most users would like to install a discrete sound card.
However, if lowering Hyper-Transport frequency, for example, doesn’t improve overclocking performance, the default multiplier is used m2c. All capacitors are brand name, made by Matsushita, Rubycon and Sanyo.

At design time there probably has been a question whether to include an on-board network controller connected to the PCI bus all the necessary wiring is presenthowever, a gigabit PCI Express has been chosen instead. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: However, overclocking in such case only leads to a fixed clock rate increase.

It is important to realize that overclocking performance varies by system board and is, to some extent, an individual characteristic of each specific unit. Products may not be available in all markets. One can set a temperature threshold that corresponds to minimal rotation frequency and a temperature threshold, at which mm2v adjusting of fan’s xhipset begins.
In order to evaluate the overclocked system’s stability, we chioset Windows XP and run performance tests built into WinRAR Tools menu – Benchmark and hardware test for 10 minutes. Video 3Digests Video cards: Chipset’s heat emission is not high and doesn’t depend much on the amount of load, because it doesn’t have an integrated graphics chippset. Overclocking In order to evaluate the overclocking capabilities of the board and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed CPU to the highest frequency possible that also allows for stable operation.
Besides storing in the CMOS area, in similarity to the expensive boards, one can use an external disk. No more DOS-based flash chipse and bootable diskette required.
In other words even at times when for some reason boards based on VIA chipsets were scarce, those wishing to get one had a good chance of finding something suitable among ASUS models. The practical goal of our test is to find out if the CPU’s high overclocking potential is hindered by the board and to evaluate the board’s behavior in non-standard BIOS modes.
RAM is set by using multiplier correction to the standard frequency for the modules being used, unless the manufacturer specifies methods for improving memory overclocking, in which case their effectiveness is also explored. In all fairness, we must note that the differences in noise levels of the left and right channel should not be attributed to all units of this model, but are likely an exception.

Please refer to the specification page The product electricalelectronic equipment, Mercury-containing button cell battery should not be placed in municipal waste. Non-standard settings were not tested for operability. Supply connectors that ended up in the center of the board are chiset so good.
