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. Immediately we ran CPU-Z and noticed two things. Here you can see the socket and the northbridge cooler. There are also two connectors for the IDE drives and one for a floppy drive. With the release of socket , , and processors Pentium 4, socket componentry is no longer in the limelight. It booted up and installed Windows flawlessly.

This means prices are falling even 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 variations between each are generally very slight- normally changes in the northbridge, soutbridge, or included accessories, etc.
In general the Asus motherboard did quite well, certainly enough for you to realize why so many enthusiast opted to go with Springdale motherboards as opposed to their more expensive Canterwood counterparts. This is an program which painlessly updates your Asusetk at your request.

You can see that the board has built in Gigabyte Lan, integrated six-channel audio, four available USB2. This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. With its Prescott compatibilities this board can run any skt processor, many of which can compete with the other, more exciting processors out there.
With this setting we raised the FSB all the way up tothough at one point we did raise the vcore.
Under normal circumstances we found this MB to be very easy to work with, stable, and asustem speedy, especially in booting up and shutting down. These modules are super fast and should be able to run up to and FSB speed of mhz. Here is the top right corner of the P4P SE. More than anything else p4pp800se 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.
We quickly realized that it was time to invested in a new northbridge cooler- we actually have on its way, the Northpole from MicroCool.

This the is the last board in an evolution of skt boards that have been around since the inception of the P4. The upcoming BIOS, v, which is in Beta now, will be interesting to check out and see if these issues can be helped.
After the physical installation it came time to run aaudio computer. Once its here we plan on getting some faster memory and really testing the limits of this mainboard.

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. These latency timings are not terrible but will make for lost performance if you forget p4p800sr check. Here is the motherboard, boxed, as we received it.
At this point we put the audio jacks into the wrong sockets in the back of the computer, which is aaudio because they are color-coded. The 12v power connector was located in a somewhat strange spot, below and to the left of the processor but asuustek was not a problem, though aesthetically it is not the best spot. The setup we used was: With this superb memory we overclocked the system in increments of 2mhz from up to 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.
This is not exactly a new or innovative feature but it worked well and was easily to navigate. The last part of our testing was overclocking the system. At this time we found another AI feature, AiUpdate. Note the board does not come included with Firewire compatibility.

It tells the user a lot about the MB, all of which will will soon go over. It is layed out in a confusing way and some of the most important features are either tucked away or made to be less accessible than normal.
There are four memory slots making for a maximum of 8gb of memory, not that you could ever need that much. Within a second the an AiAudio window popped up and explained to auduo why the audio was not functioning. The socket is placed along the top of the board which is usually good for clearance when using a larger heatsinks.
