And in case of usage of the external netcard and WOL connector on the board everything awakes excellently. Since the internal audio connectors are located right under the video card it may cause troubles for a variant with AC97 sound. All-in-all, the CUV4X is a very nice board. PCI master Some modes allow to raise the performance up to There are 4 connectors for fans but only three are controlled.

You will also notice the dip in the dark blue line at the 4th test above. Note that the UDMA modes gives a noticeable performance gain. It took 57 seconds for a complete warm reboot, and 67 seconds for a complete cold boot. At this setting, the system was running at MHz, with a memory speed of MHz.
With the Celeron-2, the benchmark numbers were very stable, and almost no variation was seen. As I’ve said in previous reviews, I’d rather notherboard see an audio modem riser, or on-board audio.
You can check it with the help of PowerStrip utility. The second, an orange one, shows that motherbkard card is connected to the Mbit network. When I returned the next morning, the demo had dropped out to the desktop, but the system had not hung. The monitoring of the board and processors’ status is provided by the ASUS proprietary chip. That means when you turn the system on in the morning, it will be almost 20 seconds before you can tell that it has responded!
There were no claims for reliability.

At MHz, that is probably acceptable behavior. With a little more work, Asus could make it a great board. And in case of usage of the external netcard and WOL connector on the board everything awakes excellently. The Y axis is exaggerated in the chart below, to highlight what variability there was.
However, not all of the functions are included due to not very high reliability. Having started up the Quake3 in uniprocessor mode, we can see that everything works almost on one processor, and the second one can be used for other things.

With the following raise of the frequency the system hung in the Quake3 20 minutes mothernoard. The overall boot time was also longer than normal for a clean system. The slow boot times and inconsistent performance results suggest to me that they need to work on the board design some more.
Apart from the board, a user’s manual, and a CD with drivers the complete set includes the following cables: The problems concerning soft support seem to be mostly related with VIA and I hope they will be solved in the nearest time.
The advanced users can enable the AGP 4X motherboqrd having adjusted the register: For such cases ASUS offers its own one.
The system ran 3D Mark without a hitch. An integrated network controller can be disabled with a jumper on the board. The next available speed was 85MHz.
This occurred right after a fresh, cold boot, so it is inherent in the system. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Unfortunately, there are not many tests for dualprocessor systems. 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.
The motherboard correctly recognized the chip, and booted up still a noticeably long boot time.

Secondly, it’s necessary to use the required programs, e. The most overclockable Pentium IIIs are the E and E models, which often will run at MHz on the front side bus, if the motherboard and memory can handle it too.
The chart below shows the Norton Benchmark variability at this cuvv4x. How much of a speed boost do you get at to MHz?
