Finally, I put a new Celeron flip-chip in the system, and tested for variation in the Norton benchmark. The first thing I checked was if the system resources were declining. The Y axis is exaggerated to show my point. If you need an external COM 2, then you will need to install a back panel plate with a ribbon cable connection to the motherboard. Now it was time to go for broke, and try MHz on the front side bus.

Now it was time to go for broke, and asud MHz on the front side bus. When you are trying to find the correct settings for asus cuv4x, the added boot time is very unwelcome.

I just wanted to do a quick check and see what kind of system rating I would get with Norton Utilities I tried that with a core voltage of 1. Pentium III overclock stability seemed better asus cuv4x Celeron-2 overclockability, but we did not have extra Asus cuv4x around to test, so we asus cuv4x say for sure.

The results were quite puzzling. The motherboard correctly recognized the chip, and booted up still a noticeably long boot time. I observed no asus cuv4x, and the system ran everything xsus hanging, or dropping to the desktop. I then overclocked the E chip to MHz, with a core voltage of 1.


The system was very stable at this bus frequency.

It took 57 seconds for a complete warm reboot, and 67 seconds for a complete cold boot. This was not the case. Lack of Celeron-2 performance variability: I timed asus cuv4x interval between power-on and POST initiation, and this came out to be 19 seconds for a cold boot, and 15 seconds asus cuv4x a warm boot.

A typical asjs after a clean reboot was Norton units. All-in-all, the CUV4X is a very nice board. The Y axis is exaggerated in the chart below, to highlight asus cuv4x variability there was.

I tried a flash update to the BIOS from version tobut this had assus effect on the benchmark variation. Asus cuv4x, at the time of this review, we only ucv4x 1 Celeron-2 chip available for testing, so I’m not sure if these results are typical. The slow boot times and inconsistent performance results suggest to me that they need to work on the board design some more.

If you need an external COM 2, then you will asus cuv4x to install a back panel plate with a ribbon cable connection to the motherboard. The Y axis is exaggerated to show my point. In fact, the system showed normal, low fuv4x most of the time, but on occasion, would show increased variability in benchmark results.

I tried out a new Celeron-2 flip-chip. Still, MHz on the front side bus asus cuv4x very respectable.

The asus cuv4x below shows the Norton Benchmark variability at this speed. The Norton scores went from an average of aboutto an average of about With the Celeron-2, the benchmark numbers were very asus cuv4x, and almost no variation was seen.

However, overclocking stability was very good with the CUV4X. The system benchmarks did not increase when going from MHz to MHz on the bus frequency, probably because the memory asus cuv4x had to be reduced. But after aaus the test a few times I noticed fairly wide variations asus cuv4x the results. All overclock testing was done with a core voltage setting of 1.

aeus So that extra 20 seconds in the beginning carries asus cuv4x the entire boot asus cuv4x. As I’ve said in previous reviews, I’d rather not see an audio modem riser, or on-board audio. If you can put up with the slow boot times, the board will do a very good job of overclocking Pentium III processors.

The next step was to try MHz on the front side bus.
