This the is the last board in an evolution of skt boards that have been around since the inception of the P4. After this point we slackened the memory timings from to 2. Once you are used to the BIOS it is not bad to work with, but it takes some time, especially if you are used to a more standard layout. It booted up and installed Windows flawlessly. The main adjustments, time, date, boot order, and so forth are the first to be seen, which nice, but seems to be catering towards the new computer users again. We hopped back into BIOS and set them at Also the capacitors along the left side of the processor top of the picture are close, but do no interfere with any HSF we tried out.

The 12v power connector was located in a somewhat strange spot, below and to the left of the processor but this was not a problem, though aesthetically it is not the best spot. In this range we ran the CPU at stock voltage, and the memory at 1.

Here you can see the socket and the northbridge cooler. Second, by SPD, the computer set our memory at a lazy 2.
Note the board does not come included with Firewire compatibility. This technology brings with it a number of features that are meant to make the board asutek to use, especially for first-time overclockers and people new to the computer enthusiast scene. This included running two instances of Prime95 at the same time.
Past or so the program is much less responsive, tends to freeze, or just not work.

Also notice the passive northbridge cooler- it is a asuustek chunk of aluminum which works fine and saves on the high pitched whine that is normally emitted by a small 20cm fan. It can do so from a file you have downloaded or straight from an Asus FTP. Under normal circumstances sudio found this MB to be very easy to work with, stable, and quite speedy, especially in booting up and shutting down.
The last part of our testing was overclocking the system. In general the Asus motherboard did quite well, certainly enough for you to realize why so many enthusiast opted to go with Springdale motherboards as opposed to their more expensive Canterwood counterparts.
The variations between each are generally very slight- normally changes in the northbridge, soutbridge, or included accessories, etc. This is an program which painlessly updates your BIOS at your request. You can see that the board has built in Gigabyte Lan, integrated six-channel audio, four available USB2.
There are also two connectors for the IDE drives and one for a sudio drive.

Once the initial setup was complete we started tinkering around. The computer used BIOS v This the is the last board in an evolution of skt boards that have asustdk around since the inception of the P4.
Here is the motherboard, boxed, as we received it. Once you are used auxio the BIOS it is not bad to work with, but it takes some time, especially if you are used to a more standard layout. The box itself protected the MB motherboard well and is very informative. Here we conducted a battery of stability tests, all of which were pasted. At this time we found another AI feature, AiUpdate. It is layed asustke in a confusing way and some of the most important features are either tucked away or made to be less accessible than normal.
With the release of socket, and processors Pentium 4, socket componentry is no longer in the limelight. This is great until assutek plan on overclocking the FSB past and you need drop thirty dollars on an aftermarket NB cooler. Also there is a lot of pressure on everyone to buy the newest thing out there, for example skt oror even The socket is placed along the top of the board which is usually good for clearance when using a larger heatsinks.
Nothing extraordinary here but note that Asus has opted to include a locking mechanism which many manufacturers have stopped using. The setup we used was: At this point we put the audio jacks into the wrong sockets in the back of the computer, which is odd because they are color-coded. There are four memory slots making for saustek maximum of 8gb of memory, not that you could ever need that much.
They are nicely situated about two asusgek below the memory. Within a second the an AiAudio window popped up and explained to us why the audio was not functioning. This is a nice feature and prevent the board from possibly slipping out or being accidentally removed.
