The setup we used was: With this superb memory we overclocked the system in increments of 2mhz from up to Here is the top right corner of the P4P SE. Also 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. The 12v power connector was located in a somewhat strange spot, below and to the left of the processor but this was not a problem, though aesthetically it is not the best spot.

Second, by Auvio, the computer set our memory at a lazy 2. Once its here we plan on getting some faster memory and really testing the limits of this mainboard.

This is great until aasustek plan on overclocking the FSB past and you need drop thirty dollars on an aftermarket NB cooler. This is not exactly a new or innovative feature but it worked well and was easily to navigate. The setup we used was: The last part of our testing was overclocking the system. Note the board does not come included with Firewire 4pp800se.

The box itself protected the MB motherboard well and is very informative.

In this range we ran the CPU at stock voltage, and the memory at 1. At the sytem was stable enough to play Halo or run 3dMark01 but it did not run Prime95 so we back it down tojust to be safe.


Immediately we ran CPU-Z and noticed two things. 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. Here are the two SATA ports. The computer used BIOS v There are also two connectors for the IDE drives and one for a floppy drive. More than anything else the socket lacks future potential, but if you are buying a hardware right now, or even within the next few months that does not really matter.

With this setting we raised the FSB all the way up tothough at one point we did raise the vcore. At this time we found another AI feature, AiUpdate.

From these three characteristics you can tell lot about the board. You can see that the board has built in Gigabyte Lan, integrated six-channel audio, four available USB2. For what it is the P4P SE is a very solid board with only sudio few minor faults and no major problems.

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. We quickly realized that it was time to invested in a new northbridge cooler- we actually have asystek its way, the Northpole from MicroCool.


Nothing extraordinary here but note that Asus has opted to include a locking mechanism which many manufacturers have stopped using. This is a nice feature and prevent the board from possibly slipping out or being accidentally removed. This site xudio earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page.

Within a second the an AiAudio window popped up and explained to us why the audio was not functioning. Also 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.

This can be done without leaving the comfort of Windows. The upcoming BIOS, v, which is in Beta now, will be interesting to check out and see if these issues can be helped. Past or so the program is much less responsive, tends to freeze, or just not work.

Here we conducted a battery of stability tests, all of which were pasted. It tells the user a lot about the MB, all of which will will soon go over. After this point we slackened the memory timings from to 2. Once the initial setup was complete we started tinkering around.
