The Intel INF update noted that no update was indeed necessary and the operating system had all the needed drivers. All sensibly placed and marked out in the manual. Every is as it should be in that respect. As expected, with all other things static and the FSB increasing, we see the expected score increase of points. Manufacturers can create solutions based on the chipset without worrying about the high resulting price tag.

ASUS P4B-M – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket 478 – i845
Far easier to diagnose than listening to a load of beeps or looking up a POST code in your Epox manual don’t you think? All sensibly placed and marked out in the manual.
Price is the main reason. All that’s different is etherneh chipset and CPU.
This allows you to get away with not needing a proper P4 compatible PSU for that connector and just use a spare molex. To give the system a fair chance I chose 1.
The connectors for the extra hardware like USB and the smart card reader along with the DIP switch block for adjusting the CPU and the ATX case connector block are all grouped in the same area along the bottom right hand edge of the board. The rest of the layout is standard. Intel have sensibly standardised the area around the tiny socket and physically closed it off using the heatsink mounting assembly.
Roll on iD and an updated P4B. All in all, quality BIOS. Every is as it should be in that respect.
The ATX12 connector is underneath the socket enclosure to the left of the AGP slot and is the standard 2×2 connector that Intel defined in their spec. I didn’t talk about it that much in the P4T-E review so I’ll cover it in a bit more detail here. The answer in the case of the P4B and it’s etherne chipset is yes.
It wouldn’t boot at 16x multiplier and Mhz FSB.

It performs as it should do given its speed. Manufacturers can create solutions based on the chipset without worrying about the high resulting price tag. Quite a few choices for the P4 buying public.
At Mhz, SDR memory provides a maximum bandwidth of 1. The P4 is effectively throttled and it will stall while waiting for data from system memory, reducing it’s effective IPC and therefore performance.
Personal preference dictates that a top edge placement is best for me, however anywhere near the top extremities isn’t a bad thing. I ran the Sandra burn-in wizard doing loops of the 3 tests used in the review for half an hour. The manual is also excellent.

The i is the only SDR choice at the moment and boards are quite popular and it’s an i board that Asus have given us in the P4B. I’ve been keen to look at other options for the P4 since my first taste of the platform with the MSI Pro5, another i board.
After tweaking the FSB, the quickest stable speed was Mhz 16 x Remove the previous motherboard, screw in the Asus ram and CPU ethrenet installed. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic.
The manual lays out everything clearly and it’s easy to find information that you need like connector placement. I’ll try and look at assu from both sides when I conclude the review so both camps will be able to see if the Asus is for them.
Easy to find the information you need and has excellent section on fitting devices and the CPU and heatsink.
Intel have been slashing the price of their Pentium 4 processors for quite some time now. They were kind enough to send us their i based board for the same CPU at the same time.
