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. This unique adapter eliminates the trouble of plugging in one cable at a time, making connection quick and accurate. Besides storing in the CMOS area, in similarity to the expensive boards, one can use an external disk. 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 core. Please check with your supplier for exact offers. The board’s design, in general, is good. Finally, the ability to save BIOS settings in 2 profiles is clearly borrowed from the more expensive models.

Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method.

Northbridge heat sink copes well with cooling the board. Products may not be available in all markets. AMD Cool ‘n’ Quiet! Please refer specification pages for full details. Also included is Norton Internet Security anti-virus and firewall.

Rate of revolution increases as temperature goes up and decreases as the temperature goes back to a predefined value. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: 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.

It is also nice that most sockets on the board have rims, even the socket on the front audio panel. 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 core.


The 4 PCI slots are bound to please the owners of “old-style” expansion cards. PCB color and bundled software versions are subject to change without notice. In certain modes under load they may “squeak”, and such high-pitch noise is audible even in computers with noisy cooling systems.

A special option for setting memory parameters with ECC support stands out. No more DOS-based flash utility and bootable diskette required. Non-standard settings were not tested for operability.

The brand way of placing IDE slots on their side is indeed convenient. While lowering the price is most mm2v out of the question in this case, because it is already not very high for a discrete chipset with good functionality.

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. 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.

BioShock Infinite and Metro: The only minus is the choice of “open” coils in the voltage stabilizer. 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.

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.


All specifications are subject to change without notice. It allows to transfer digital audio without converting to analog format and keeps the best signal quality. This test also assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc. The effect is expected to be quite significant, because the heat sink is located near the CPU socket and has tall fins that are oriented accordingly.

All microchips allowed for by design have been installed. Check local regulations for disposal of electronic products. This chipdet at the manufacturer’s website.

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. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.

This utility saves users the cost and hassle of buying a replacement BIOS chip. Besides storing in the CMOS area, in similarity to the expensive chpiset, one can use an external disk. The three-channel impulse supply voltage stabilizer uses 3 field transistors per channel, 6 capacitors of microfarad each and 5 capacitors of microfarad each.
