Note that the UDMA modes gives a noticeable performance gain. It can be difficult ot explain just by a small difference in frequency of clock generators. At a bus frequency of 85MHz, the system speed rating was MHz. But it doesn’t hinder installation in any standard case. Besides the standard ATX power supply the board has an additional connector for 3. We used the q3crush.

But before you should get sure that BIOS allows using this mode.

Below is a graph of the kind of result that made me curious in the first place. The Y axis is exaggerated again. Lack of Celeron-2 performance variability: These are very significant performance variations that I could not account for. Internet Content Creation Bryce 4 I even tried a different power supply, also without effect on the variability.

If you can put up with the slow boot times, the board will do a very good job of overclocking Pentium III processors. At first I thought the system wasn’t going to boot.

System performance was substantially lower than with a comparably clocked Pentium III system, motherboaard as I mentioned earlier, the performance variability seen with the Pentium III was not seen with the Celeron You can check it with the help of PowerStrip utility. There is a couple of LEDs near the connector.


There were no claims for reliability. However, there was almost no variation in Norton benchmark numbers from run to run.

The system benchmarks did not increase when going from MHz to MHz on the bus frequency, probably because the memory speed had to be reduced. So that extra 20 seconds in the beginning carries through the entire boot process.

The next available speed was 85MHz. The results were quite puzzling. There are 4 connectors for fans but only three are controlled.

At this setting, the system was running at MHz, with a memory speed of MHz. After that we adjusted memory and CPU frequencies. Moherboard chart below shows some of the kinds of variability I observed.

Asus CUV4X Motherboard Review –

The driver from VIA was installed. With a little more work, Asus could make it a great board. I just wanted to do a quick check and see what kind of system rating I would get with Norton Utilities Even a usage of a long AGP video card does prevent their access.

During the test the system has never booted, the Stress Tests were started up together with several video and netcards under Windows Pro and Windows NT Server. Despite the fact that the board supports WOL it doesn’t work with the integrated network adapter. Besides, for two MHz systems we received quite low scores. At a bus frequency of 85MHz, the system speed rating was MHz. I timed the interval between power-on and POST initiation, and this came out to be 19 seconds for a cold boot, and 15 seconds for a warm boot.


I then overclocked the E chip to MHz, with a core voltage of 1. Note that the UDMA modes gives a noticeable performance gain. Two SCSI channels act as separate controllers, they even use separate interrupt lines.

As I’ve said in previous reviews, I’d rather not see an audio modem riser, or on-board audio. The board includes only 5 PCI slots that’s why the lowest slot can be used for the bracket for two additional USB cuuv4x. The variability was still quite noticeable, as shown in the chart below.
