Quite a few choices for the P4 buying public. With their own employees making grand claims, it was only fair to test things out on the overclocking front. This allows you to get away with not needing a proper P4 compatible PSU for that connector and just use a spare molex. It was 16 x that I tried initially. Overall, it’s a fine implementation of i and it was nice working with it. Asus have also implemented a boot monitoring system like Epox’s little 2-digit display and the cool D-Bracket from MSI. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic.

Everything is laid out logically, accessing the CPU settings is easy and the memory settings also have their own sections.
You can see why memory bandwidth plays such an important part in the fastest systems. Like Abit and SoftMenu III, Asus have a technology of their own that allows adjustment of motherboard settings without using dip switch blocks and jumpers, called JumperFree.
Every is as it should be in that respect. PC SDRAM is also cheap allowing you to stuff a system full of memory chipset maximum is 3Gb for little outlay although prices are on the up from this years all time lows!
After tweaking the FSB, the quickest stable speed was Mhz 16 x Personal preference dictates that a top edge placement is best for me, however anywhere near the top extremities isn’t a bad thing.
Lets see if that holds out. As the P4 market has matured, more chipsets have appeared for use with them. What do you think of the smartphone notch? Another super stable board from Asus with their usual quality mark all over it. I’ve been keen to look at other options for the P4 since my first taste of the platform with the MSI Pro5, another i board. The P4 is etnernet throttled and it will stall while waiting for data from system memory, reducing it’s effective IPC and therefore performance.
All that’s different is the chipset and CPU. I p4bb talk about it that much in the P4T-E review so I’ll cover it in a bit more detail here. Finally, a quick run of Aquanox at the higher FSB gives us the following. At Mhz, SDR memory provides a maximum bandwidth of 1. Eternet wouldn’t boot p4 16x multiplier and Mhz Wthernet.

The powerful Pentium 4 processor at 2Ghz helps to nullify the memory bandwidth deficit and keep the Aquamark score afloat and respectable. Vdimm was left alone 3.
So why starve the P4 of what it craves? It’s just a shame about the overall performance. More on that shortly.
Roll on iD and an updated P4B. Asus have taken half the advantage of the extra features on the ICH2 and implemented the onboard AC’97 audio.
It performs as it should do given its speed. The answer in the case of the P4B and it’s i chipset is yes. Overclocking Ethernst I started testing the board I received a forwarded email from an Asus employee stressing that they regard the P4B as a good overclocker.
ASUS P4B-M – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket 478 – i845
When buying this board, etherneh intelligent and try and use it as a sensible upgrade path to something higher performing. Here’s the command line used. The means all P4 Socket sinks are guaranteed to always fit so there will be no questions like on some AMD boards when using 80mm aus like the Alpha and Swiftech’s famous MC range.
PC DDR gets close at 2. Being an engineering sample with a full choice etthernet any multiplier, what better to test out the overclocking possibilities of the board. No change in CPU voltage was required. The system proceeded to boot perfectly. The i is the only SDR choice at the moment and boards are quite popular and it’s an i board that Asus have given us in the P4B.
