It is also nice that most sockets on the board have rims, even the socket on the front audio panel. Products may not be available in all markets. Please refer specification pages for full details. This is in line with the ASUS vision of creating environment-friendly and recyclable products and packaging to safeguard consumers’ health while minimizing the impact on the environment. Also included is Norton Internet Security anti-virus and firewall. 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. 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.

In certain modes under load they may “squeak”, and such high-pitch noise is audible even in computers with noisy cooling systems.

One can set a temperature threshold that corresponds to minimal rotation frequency and a temperature threshold, at which gradual adjusting of fan’s speed begins. Check local regulations for disposal of electronic products.

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. However, overclocking in such case only leads to a fixed clock rate increase.

Not an outstanding result. It allows to transfer digital audio without converting to analog format and keeps the best signal quality. Please refer specification pages for full details.


Rate of revolution increases as temperature goes up and decreases as the temperature goes back to a predefined value.

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. 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. Specifications and features vary by model, and all images are illustrative. 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.

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.

Products may not be available in all markets. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: 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. 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.

Control of computer wake on signal from keyboard or a USB-devices that are connected to the rear panel ports and additional port brackets. The three-channel impulse supply voltage stabilizer uses 3 field transistors per channel, 6 capacitors of microfarad each and 5 capacitors of microfarad each. Please check with your supplier for exact offers. Applying this test procedure, we are able to effectively use all of the test board’s supported abilities, including increasing processor core voltage, and if necessary, correcting multipliers and adjusting system and peripheral bus frequencies.


All microchips allowed for by design have been installed.

Non-standard settings were not tested for operability. Therefore, it is clear that besides increasing the frequency of the clock no additional adjusting of parameters, for example decreasing the HT bus multiplier, is taking place. Board’s form factor is a “narrowed” ATX x mm.

Besides storing in the CMOS area, in similarity to the expensive boards, one can use an external disk. Although the number of settings available for storing chipsset great, it is still a nice feature. 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, chipser, unpopular chipsets under differend brand names. Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 KHzdB: Reverting to the default clock rate in case of excessive overclocking works effectively, one only has to reboot the computer twice.

Finally, the ability to save BIOS settings in 2 profiles is clearly borrowed from the more expensive models.

Brand and product names mentioned are trademarks of their respective companies. For this reason, it is impossible for us, and any other review, to determine the overclocking potential j2v any board with megahertz precision. However, if lowering Hyper-Transport frequency, for example, doesn’t improve overclocking performance, the default multiplier is used instead.
