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. The socket is placed along the top of the board which is usually good for clearance when using a larger heatsinks. We hopped back into BIOS and set them at Once the initial setup was complete we started tinkering around. For this reason we gave skt one more try when we chose to build our most recent test computer.

ASUS P4P800 SE, Socket 478, Intel (P4P800SE-10PACK) Motherboard
There are also two connectors for the IDE drives and one for a floppy drive. This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page.
This means prices are falling coomputer though the performance of socket hardware is still very close to that of other platforms. 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 main problems with the P4P SE are all external. 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.
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. 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 setup we used was: Once you are used to the BIOS it is not bad to work with, but it takes some time, especially if you are used to a more standard layout.
This is about what the findings have been over our experience with skt motherboards, though there is usually a surprise to two when the Springdale beats the Canterwood.
Once the initial setup was complete we started tinkering around.

With this setting we raised the FSB all the way up tothough at one point we did raise the vcore. For this reason we gave skt one asusetk try when we chose to build our most recent test computer.
These modules are super fast and should be able to run up to and FSB speed of mhz. Once its here we plan on getting some faster memory and really testing the limits of this mainboard. 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.
Asus P4P SE –
No matter what else, this board is an Asus, and that means a lot. With this superb memory we overclocked the system in increments of 2mhz from up to We hopped back into BIOS and set them at Nothing extraordinary here but note that Asus has opted to include a locking mechanism which many manufacturers have stopped assutek.
This can be done without leaving the comfort of Windows. The box itself protected the MB motherboard well and is very informative.

Here is the top right corner of the P4P SE. In this range we ran the CPU at stock voltage, and the memory at 1.
At this time we found another AI feature, AiUpdate. This included running two instances of Prime95 asusetk the same asustrk. The upcoming BIOS, v, which is in Askstek 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. Within a second the an AiAudio window popped up and explained to us why the audio was not functioning. Here you can see the socket and the northbridge cooler.
From these three characteristics you can tell lot about the board. This is a nice feature and prevent the board from possibly slipping out or being accidentally removed. 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. With its Prescott compatibilities this board can run any skt processor, many of which can compete with the other, more exciting processors out there.
