It wouldn’t boot at 16x multiplier and Mhz FSB. Manufacturers can create solutions based on the chipset without worrying about the high resulting price tag. Overall, it’s a fine implementation of i and it was nice working with it. So why starve the P4 of what it craves? Good English, clear and well laid out. The bundle was average in content.

But what about the i? All sensibly placed and marked out in the manual.

Conclusion So have Asus done what every motherboard manufacturer strives to do and create the best product they can from the chipsets they have available? We’ll visit a pair of 2Ghz benchmarks, 20 x and 15 x and this time round we’ll drop the 1. Being an engineering sample with a full choice of any multiplier, what better to test out the overclocking possibilities of the board. PC DDR gets close at 2.

The means all P4 Socket sinks are guaranteed to always fit so there will be no questions like on some AMD boards wsus using 80mm sinks like the Alpha and Swiftech’s famous MC range. Like Abit and SoftMenu III, Asus have a technology of ws99127f own that allows adjustment of motherboard settings without using dip switch blocks and jumpers, called JumperFree.


Asus Asf now has a special edition for these Windows versions: The chipset is available very cheaply in volume from Intel. It performs as it should do given its speed. The connectors for the extra hardware like USB and the smart card reader along with the DIP switch block for adjusting the CPU and the ATX case connector block asuus all grouped in the same area along the bottom right hand edge of the board.

Lastly in the layout, dotted around the board Installation was painless.

Select Your Operating System, download zipped files, and then proceed to manually install them. Click to find out more.

If you encounter problems with the direct download for these operating systems, please consult the driver download manager for the specific Asus Asf model. The increase in FSB should give us a healthy score increase.

As the P4 market has matured, more chipsets have appeared for use with them.

You will never see the P4 sund shine on an SDR system simply because it can’t provide the bandwidth that the processor craves. The P4 is effectively throttled and it will stall while waiting for data from system memory, reducing it’s effective IPC and therefore performance. However if you look at the chipset in the way that Intel did when it designed it, you begin to see the point.

I was surprised it made it pastit just didn’t want to boot at 17 x at all.


The rest of the layout is standard. Everything is laid out logically, accessing the CPU settings is easy and the memory settings also have their own sections. Lets see if that holds out. I’ll try and look at things from both sides when I conclude as99217f review so both camps will be able to see if the Asus is for them.

As far as expansion and upgrade capability, the P4B is great. Price is the main reason. After downloading and installing Asus Asf, or the driver installation manager, take a few minutes to send us a report: The manual lays out everything clearly and it’s easy to find information that you need like connector placement.

Finally my PC got up to speed! Remove the previous motherboard, screw in the Asus ram and CPU already installed. The memory benchmark is more interesting.

Slund memory effectively cripples the processor so that it will never operate to its full potential. This option requires no OS understanding. Vdimm was left alone 3. More on that shortly.
