Here is the top right corner of the P4P SE. 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. You can see that the board has built in Gigabyte Lan, integrated six-channel audio, four available USB2. At this point we put the audio jacks into the wrong sockets in the back of the computer, which is odd because they are color-coded. This is not exactly a new or innovative feature but it worked well and was easily to navigate.

With its Prescott compatibilities this board can run any skt processor, many of which can compete with the other, more exciting processors out there. 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.
Fthernet the release of socket, and processors Pentium 4, socket componentry is no longer in the limelight. They are nicely situated about two inches below the memory. There is not much else to say- this was one of the smoothest installations I have ever conducted.
These latency timings are not terrible but will make for lost performance if you forget to check. This means prices are falling even though the performance of socket hardware is still very close to that of other platforms.
Also notice the passive northbridge cooler- it is a nice chunk of aluminum which works fine and saves on the high pitched whine that is normally emitted by a small 20cm fan. This is about what the findings have been over our experience with skt motherboards, though there is usually a surprise to two ethfrnet the Springdale beats the Canterwood.
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. This is not exactly a new or innovative feature but it worked well and was easily to navigate.
We hopped back into BIOS and set them at Once you are used to the BIOS it is not bad to work with, but it takes some time, especially if you p48p00se used to a more standard layout. The main problems with the P4P SE are all external. In this range we ran the CPU at stock voltage, and the memory at 1. After this point we slackened the memory timings from to 2. Under normal circumstances we found this MB to be very easy to work with, stable, and quite speedy, especially in booting up and shutting down.
There are also two connectors for the IDE drives and one for a floppy drive. Here we conducted a battery of stability tests, all of which were pasted.
The setup we used was: This is great until you plan on overclocking the FSB past and you need drop thirty dollars on an aftermarket NB cooler. It tells the user a lot about the MB, all of which will will soon go over. Here are the two SATA ports. We quickly realized that it was time to invested in a new northbridge cooler- we actually have on its way, the Northpole from MicroCool.
The socket is placed along the top of the board which is usually good for clearance when using a larger pp4p800se.
Past or so the program is much less responsive, tends to freeze, or just not work. Nothing extraordinary here but note that Asus has opted to include a locking mechanism which many manufacturers have stopped using.
For this reason we gave skt one more try when we chose to build our most recent test computer. This asu is the last board in an evolution of skt boards that have been around since the inception of the P4.
ethernett This is an program which painlessly updates your BIOS at your request. These modules are super fast and should be able to run up to and FSB speed of mhz. From these three characteristics you can tell lot about the board. Note the board does not come included with Firewire compatibility. Second, by SPD, the computer set our memory at a lazy 2.
At this point we put the audio jacks into the ehhernet sockets in the back of the computer, which is odd because they are color-coded.
