The latest products of this company based on the high-performance chipsets support almost all innovative technologies apart from good accessories. This model is almost a full copy of the ASUS P4GE-V, but for the fact that the 2nd serial port is located on the rear panel which is typical of all boards on discrete chipsets.
The layout has typical drawbacks: audio-ins and connectors along the left side of the board are not easy to reach and when a video card is installed it's difficult to handle the memory modules. It's not difficult to reach jumpers when the board is already installed. Their functions are not shown on the textolite.
The 3-channel switching voltage regulator incorporates 6 capacitors of 1500 uF and 3 of 1200 uF.
The following controllers are integrated:
The board incorporates ASUS Multi-Language BIOS, ASUS POST Reporter (reports about problems during booting), ASUS MyLogo2 (for displaying your images when the system boots),ASUS EZ Plug (allows using a power unit which doesn't comply with the ATX 2.03 standard), ASUS Q-Fan (auto fan speed control) and ASUS EZ Flash.
+5 V supplied in the StandBy mode is indicated with the green LED, and when a 3.3V card is inserted into the AGP slot you will see the red LED going on which means that the card is incompatible (it's impossible to turn on the computer even with the Power button).
The system monitoring is supported by the ASUS ASB100 Bach chip. What is controlled:
There are 3 connectors for adjustable connection of fans.
Brief characteristics of the board: memory slots - 3 DDR SDRAM; expansion slots - AGP/ 6 PCI; I/O ports - 2 COM/ LPT/ 2 PS/2/ 6 USB 2.0 / 2 FireWire; dimensions - 305x230 mm.
can be carried out with:
We used the BIOS 1001 as the latest available version.
Well, its advantages and strong points are evident but let's wait until all the boards are examined.
