What is there to gain or lose, other than that particular issue you raise by installing it? Test 1 used a Powerleap adapter, and Test 2 used an nVidia Geforce3 card. I want to cover as much ground as possible. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. This is version 3. ASUS is at it again, this time armed with the full power and potential of the BX chipset as well as a few unofficially supported yet documented bus speed settings on the new P2B.

Intel seemed to get it right the first time every time. Corsair Microsystems Purchase Web-Site: In addition to the supported settings are a few “just-for-fun” options, including the 75, 83, Turbo Frequencyand MHz bus speeds. I believe it’s the final PCB revision that was made.

With the clock multipliers and bus speed settings documented on the motherboard, the well-written ASUS User’s Manual isn’t even necessary for the basic setup chiipset the motherboard. Hey retro gamesI finally figured out why P3 systems are so slow when you disable the L1 cache! I got the get me one of these Tualatin enabled converters.

I asis to cover as much ground as possible. Not sure about the non DS mobo Fast Fast Normal Snoop Ahead: I have always used the version from the Intel website. Board index All times are UTC.


The azus revision of the P2B made no indication of a MHz bus speed, which isn’t a big loss since making use of a MHz bus speed setting requires sub -8ns PC SDRAM, realistically 6ns modules are needed for the most stable operation at that speed.

The following tests were run, and they all passed with the sound sounding OK. My website with reviews, demos, drivers, tutorials and more I appreciate that this is not specific, but I don’t want to concentrate on one specific topic.

Onand Super Socket 7 boards the L2 cache is on the mainboard and stays enabled if you disable L1. The consequence is, that I abort reading after a few lines. Link to a useful processor upgrade guide webpage, for the P2B. I’ve run some tests already on this mobo.

Return to General Old Hardware. There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. Why do you need more voltage for IO?

This option allows users to select the best setting for their AGP cards to enhance the performance as some AGP cards may be capable of running stable at MHz. Host Bus Fast Data Ready: Now, I get no distortion when I play that dance.

Industrial boards would be nice, but I doubt they allow you to lower and raise the FSB which would be crucial to “fine tune” the system This effect can sometimes be undesirable, and means that the FSB must not be overclocked in this manner to ensure that the PCI card s function correctly. Well disabling L1 also disables L2 which is on the cpu with P3s.

Instead, it’s best if you go to the Asus website, and download the following files for yourself. Sticking to the more conventional and sometimes more reliable Jumper-Driven configuration, the P2B’s setup is almost identical to that of the old KNX.

You can then also disable L2 to slow it down even further VIA really made this “upgrading” chipset drivers commonplace because they just had such an awful AGP implementation and everyone hoped the weekly “patch” would be better.
