Unlike the other motherboards in this review, there is no southbridge cooler, but there is a passive heatsink on the northbridge. However once installed in a case, I found that the ATX cable blocks the removable 3. Combined with a number of other factors including a mature DDR DRAM market with an availability of good modules, putting together a good Athlon XP box is easier than ever and performance has never been better. In practice I found that Q-Fan works as advertised but found limited practicality. The downside to this BIOS however is that you sometimes need to adjust one of the eight jumpers located on the motherboard, and some of them are in awkward locations. This motherboard may not have all the features that will tickle the enthusiast’s fancy, but it is an excellent board with great execution.

There is also POST Reporter that pronounces audible warnings or status information during your motherboard boot-up sequence. Combined with a number of other factors including a mature DDR DRAM market with an availability of good modules, putting together a good Athlon XP box is easier than ever and nforcd has never been better. The Asus website also carries warranty information in an obvious spot here making it easier for customers to access the support they need.

I find this extremely inconvenient and inefficient as a consumer because in order to adjust something as simple as disabling SATA, you need to not norce switch the jumper to the appropriate spot, but also change the appropriate setting in the BIOS. That period when yields on the processors are bforce good that the lower end models are remarked versions of the high clocking cores. Their 3-year warranty is also displayed clearly on the back of the box but no other documentation included mentions warranty.
Unlike the other motherboards in this review, there is no southbridge cooler, but there is a passive heatsink on the northbridge.
Looking at the veluxe area, there are four mounting holes for waterblocks and heatsinks, but is hampered by a row of big capacitors. All that comes on top of the non-T specifications such as the full 6 channel hardware assisted audio, USB2. Asus’s support information is clearly printed on the inside of the front cover of the owner’s manual and on the driver CD.
However once installed in a case, I found that the ATX cable blocks the removable 3. I personally find this feature questionable since there are many situations where you either don’t have speakers or work in a quiet environment.
Large video coolers will block the first PCI slot. The bus link is also isynchronous meaning devices on either end are free to use the bus at will and the bus can guarantee bandwidth.

Also, there are two fan headers adjacent to the AGP slot see image below which can cause problems with large videocoolers as well see image below. On to the south bridge.
