This test also assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc. Please refer specification pages for full details. Not an outstanding result. However, from the consumer’s viewpoint any competition even internal is definitely for the good, because it broadens the choice. Compatibility with both 3-pin and 4-pin fans is provided. 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.

cgipset Rate of revolution increases as temperature goes up and decreases as the temperature goes back to a predefined value. Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 KHzdB: The only minus is the choice of “open” coils in the voltage stabilizer. However, in our opinion, an ability to raise the CPU voltage even by a little has become reasonable for any full-size system board based on discrete chipset.

Finally, the ability to save BIOS settings in 2 profiles is clearly borrowed from the more expensive models. This test also assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc.

Supply connectors that ended up in the center of the board are not so good. AMD Cool ‘n’ Quiet! Although the number of cipset available for storing isn’t great, it chilset still a nice feature.

The corresponding settings have been cyipset to appear even among compact system boards with a graphics core integrated into the chipset. Also included is Norton Internet Security anti-virus and firewall. 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.

Board’s form factor is a “narrowed” ATX x mm. PCB color and bundled software versions are subject to change without notice. RAM is set by using multiplier correction to chipest standard frequency for the modules being used, unless the manufacturer specifies methods for improving memory overclocking, in which case their effectiveness is also explored. This unique adapter eliminates the trouble of plugging in one cable at a time, making connection quick and accurate.

The 4 PCI slots are bound to please the owners of “old-style” expansion cards. All specifications are subject to change without notice.

Profile that allows users to conveniently store or load multiple BIOS settings. Please check with your supplier for exact offers. Write a comment below. However, overclocking in such case only leads to a fixed clock rate increase.

Check local regulations for disposal of electronic products. Please refer specification pages for full details. This motherboard provides excellent compatibility and flexibility by supporting either bit or bit architecture.


Technology, which monitors system operation and automatically adjusts CPU voltage and frequency for a cool and quiet environment. A more attractive mode of “intelligent” overclocking, where the clock rate is increased only when the CPU is under maximum load, which many ASUS boards provide in their BIOS, is not implemented for this system board. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: All microchips allowed for by design have been installed.

Northbridge heat sink copes well with cooling the board.

In chipst modes under load they may “squeak”, and such high-pitch noise is audible even in computers with noisy cooling systems. Compatibility with both 3-pin and 4-pin fans is provided. It is mounted to the chassis using six screws, however the board’s design makes any sagging of the unsecured side while connecting the peripheral ports unlikely.

Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. ASUS MyLogo2 You can convert your favorite photo into a color boot logo for a more colorful and vivid image on your screen. However, if lowering Hyper-Transport frequency, for example, doesn’t improve overclocking performance, the default multiplier is used instead.
