Once the initial setup was complete we started tinkering around. After this point we slackened the memory timings from to 2. While these are no doubt the wave of the future they have yet to substantially beat out the performance of Northwood-based computers dollar-for-dollar. Also there is a lot of pressure on everyone to buy the newest thing out there, for example skt or , or even This is an program which painlessly updates your BIOS at your request.

Once you are used to the BIOS it is not bad to work with, but it takes some time, especially if you are ethhernet to a more standard layout. 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.

Asus P4P SE –

Once its here we plan on getting some faster memory and really testing the limits of this mainboard. Once the initial setup was complete we started tinkering around.

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. There is not much else to say- this was one of the smoothest installations I have ever conducted.

It tells the user a lot about the MB, all of which will will soon go over. Past or so the program is much less responsive, tends to freeze, or just not work.


This technology brings with it a number of features that are meant asys make the board easier to use, especially for first-time overclockers and people new to the computer enthusiast scene. For what it is the P4P SE is a very solid board with only a few minor faults and no major problems.

Ethernt 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. Also there is p4800se lot of pressure on everyone to buy the newest thing out there, for example skt oror even Here are the two SATA ports.

For this reason we gave skt one more try when we chose to build our most recent test computer. We quickly realized that it was time to invested in a new northbridge cooler- we actually have on its way, the Northpole from MicroCool.

There are also two connectors for the IDE drives and one for a floppy drive. In this range we ran the CPU at stock voltage, and p4p80s0e memory at 1.

The awus problems with the P4P SE are all external. With this superb memory we overclocked the system in increments of 2mhz from up to It booted up and installed Windows flawlessly. After the physical installation it came time to run the computer.

The setup we used was: Here you can see the socket and the northbridge cooler. They are nicely situated about two inches below the memory.

This included running two instances of Prime95 at the same time. Immediately we ran CPU-Z and noticed two things.

The last part of our testing was overclocking the system. This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page.

These modules are super fast and should be able to run up to and FSB speed of mhz. This is not exactly a new or innovative feature but it worked well and was easily to navigate. There are four memory slots etheenet for a maximum of 8gb of memory, not that you could ever need that much.

From these three characteristics you can tell lot about the board. Within a second the an AiAudio window popped up and explained to us why the audio was not functioning. Second, by SPD, the computer set our memory at a lazy 2. The box itself protected the MB motherboard well and is very informative. Note the board does p4800se come included with Firewire compatibility.
