Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively and an average score was taken. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout, the board looks good and everything bar the floppy port is located with thought. It appears as if the better memory optimisations, coupled with running memory asynchronously, really help the MSI here. The board packaging is subtle and not completely over-the-top like some. Again, we see the Asus trailing the MSI at stock speeds but managing to overtake it when ‘clocked to the limit. MP3 encoding is something that I regularly do, anything that saves time in that process is most welcome. This one takes a while to complete.

RAID 1 is more commonly used to back up data as one drive simply mirrors what’s is on the other.

Through preliminary tests we were able to ascertain that SETI is extremely sensitive to memory bandwidth. By reducing the multiplier to 8x, we were able to hit a stable FSB of Mhz. The Asus is close but not close enough.

Both systems were configured for maximum performance. However, even when set to jumper-free, you still have to manually change the DDR voltage aucio jumpers.

FSB adjustment can be made in 1Mhz increments from – Mhz respectively. The very top bank of switches controls the CPU multiplier when set to jumper mode. Pifast calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible.

Although the memory benchmarks hinted at a difference, we are still surprised to see it almost 3 seconds behind the MSI albeit running asynchronously. The modes can be asua by changing the position of the JEN jumper located at the bottom right of the board. This synthetic benchmark stresses the CPU, memory sub-system and graphics card to the limit.

Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies. We’ve been able to empirically prove that Pifast thrives not only on pure CPU speed but also on memory throughput. Another fan header sits just to the right of the floppy port. Using slightly stricter settings resulted in failed boot-ups. When Asus is mentioned with respect to motherboards, what do you think?. Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively and an average score was taken.

Benchmarks Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way. We’d much rather see the floppy port grouped with the other IDE ports.

The same story unfolds here. It’s the same as the KTA in all other respects. The Asus is almost unique in that it offers both jumper and jumper-free modes of operation. One interesting thing to note is that Asus seem to over-supply actual voltage. Part of Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards. The RAID ports are located above the main Wsus ports, assu wish Asus would differentiate the ports like most other manufacturers do, a completely different colour would have sufficed.


The board satisfies it’s probable OEM target market pretty well. Will the situation be mirrored in Serious Sam 2?. Let’s have a look at the DRAM timings available. The Asus seems to fall short of this little bit extra, it does a lot of things well but fails to set our world on fire. MP3 encoding is something that I regularly do, anything that saves time in that process is most welcome.

Simply unplug the memory and away you go. Here’s a quick look at our overclocking result. This sound chip capable of 5.

Another observation we made was that the board takes a while to power up once the power switch is depressed, longer than any other board we’ve had in the labs.
