Current IBM compatible computers set their speed as a product of two numbers – Front Side Bus speed, and a multiplier. The lowest-priced item that has been restored to working order by the manufacturer ‘manufacturer refurbished condition’ or an eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer ‘seller refurbished condition’. Be the first to write a review. Next, I reset the voltage-goosing jumpers on the P and yanked the faithful Celeron A out of my usual computer. Many current motherboards, however, support faster FSB speeds. Pentium IIs have separate cache RAM that runs at half of the processor speed, and historically has proved to be rather touchy about running faster.

Many processors won’t run at a particular speed at their recommended core voltage, but will run if the core voltage is increased. And, unlike early P2B revisions, the manual spells the word “Pentium” correctly on the cover! Motherboard temperature sensors are close to useless, as they don’t tell you how hot the really important parts of the computer are.

With this strong power pump, this motherboard is made for overclocking. This is about getting the most out of your machine and taking pride in your customized computer. It effectively transfers heat generated by the critical components to the other side of the specially designed PCB printed circuit board for effective heat dissipation. With the incorporation of ASUS Intelligence AI Technology, the Main Station Series intelligently reduces operation noise and dissipates heat through advanced and environmentally friendly methods to accommodate user needs.
In my tests, both changes did indeed make a difference. Many current motherboards, however, support ;299 FSB speeds. System will continue operating at minimum power and noise when user is temporarily away. Simply click keyboard or mouse, you can swiftly wake up the system in few seconds. Socket Computer Motherboards.
Products may not be available in all markets. A device on a system bus, like the PCI bus that most current PC and Macintosh expansion cards use, can take control of the bus p29 move data directly to other devices on the bus without involving the computer’s CPU, provided the bus supports bus mastering.

Some ZX boards have the more usual five PCI slots, but only four of them can be used for cards that need a bus mastering slot. The ZX chipset see Intel’s page about it here is just like the BX except for two things – the amount of memory and the number of bus mastering PCI slots supported. The board itself is, as is normal with ASUS products, immaculately constructed, with high-grade componentry. Precision Tweaker It offers ways to raise system performance inch-by-inch and step-by-step to achieve maximum performance!
It’s not quite as good a choice for overclocking as boards that allow several quantified steps of voltage adjustment, but it should work just as well for most users, and the price is definitely right. Current IBM compatible computers set their speed as a product of two numbers – Front Side Bus speed, and a multiplier. Heat-pipe Thermal solution Cooling fans, though a popular thermal solution, also come with noise and malfunction likelyhood.
The P supports both Vcore and VIO tweaking, but not in a very advanced form – there’s a jumper for each setting on the motherboard, with a standard and “TEST” setting. Nonetheless, I was pleasantly surprised at how much faster than stock the P-II ;299 willing to run.
If you want to run it faster than its stock speed, you can only do it by tweaking the FSB. Tweaking cache latency with special utilities see here has helped some people wring more speed out of P-IIs, but the current model Celerons with their smaller but full speed cache built 2p99 into the processor chip are a better bet. Socket M Computer Motherboard for Intel.

Inject “nitrous oxide” into your CPU! Socket F Computer Motherboard for Intel. For most users the difference is trivial. All ASUS boards still use the tried and tested, and highly popular, jumper setup method.
The motherboard is something you shouldn’t skimp on when building a PC. ZX is likely to be seen only in real bargain basement motherboards, and is of no interest to overclockers. And, somewhat startlingly, the really high settings seem to have at least a chance of working! Give Dan some money! High speed, high quality, low cost.
