While lowering the price is most likely out of the question in this case, because it is already not very high for a discrete chipset with good functionality. 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. Northbridge heat sink copes well with cooling the board. The 4 PCI slots are bound to please the owners of “old-style” expansion cards. 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. Please check with your supplier for exact offers.

However, overclocking in such case only leads to a fixed clock rate increase. AMD Cool ‘n’ Quiet!
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. Supply connectors that ended up in the center of the board are not so good.
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. However, from the consumer’s viewpoint any competition even internal is definitely for the good, because it broadens the choice.
Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Profile that allows users to conveniently store or load multiple BIOS settings. Also included is Norton Internet Security anti-virus and firewall.
ASUS M2V Motherboard
Board’s form factor is a “narrowed” ATX x mm. Finally, the ability to save BIOS chjpset in 2 profiles is clearly borrowed from the more expensive models. For this reason, it is impossible for us, and any other review, to determine the overclocking potential of any board with megahertz precision. It can be explained by the use of “cut-down” HDA codec only to a certain degree.
All specifications are subject to change without notice. The brand way of placing IDE slots on their side is indeed convenient. 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 cyipset this system board.
Reverting to the default clock rate in case of excessive overclocking works effectively, one only has to reboot the computer twice. In this case overclocking of the CPU at standard voltage was limited by the processor’s abilities.
Chipwet 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.
All capacitors are brand name, made by Matsushita, Rubycon and Sanyo. Control of computer wake on signal from keyboard or a USB-devices that are connected to the rear panel ports and additional port brackets.
ASUS M2V – motherboard – ATX – Socket AM2 – K8T890 Series
Products may not be available in all markets. The only minus is the choice of “open” hcipset in the voltage stabilizer. PCB color and bundled software versions are subject to change without notice. ASUS MyLogo2 You can convert your favorite photo into a color boot logo for a more colorful and vivid image on your screen.
Please refer specification pages for full details. Applying this test procedure, we are able to effectively use all of the test board’s n2v abilities, including increasing processor core voltage, and if necessary, correcting multipliers and adjusting system and peripheral bus frequencies.
This motherboard provides excellent compatibility and flexibility by supporting either bit or bit architecture. Brand and product names mentioned are trademarks of their respective companies. The chipxet is expected to be quite significant, because the heat sink is located near the CPU socket and has tall fins that chipsett oriented accordingly. No more DOS-based flash utility and bootable diskette required.
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.
