The answer in the case of the P4B and it’s i chipset is yes. By default the board ships in JumperFree mode however it can be disabled for a more hands on jumper and DIP adjustment method if you so desire. The manual is also excellent. How will performance users judge the i systems? Vdimm was left alone 3. After tweaking the FSB, the quickest stable speed was Mhz 16 x 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
Asus call this EZPlug. Like Abit and SoftMenu III, Asus have a technology of their own that allows adjustment of motherboard settings without using dip switch blocks and jumpers, called JumperFree.
No change in CPU voltage was required. The manual lays out everything clearly and it’s easy to find information that you need like connector placement.

Here’s a quick rundown of a few results. The Intel INF update noted that no update was indeed necessary and the operating system had all the needed drivers. They were kind enough to send us their i based board for the same CPU at the same time. The chipset is available very cheaply in volume from Intel. What do you think of the smartphone notch? After tweaking the FSB, the quickest stable speed was Mhz 16 x The system proceeded to boot perfectly.
The bundle was average in content. The memory benchmark is more interesting. Given our PC memory and the engineering sample CPU with it’s unlocked multiplier it was trivial to test the claim. Vdimm was left alone 3.
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. I’ve been keen to look at other options for the Aeus since my first taste of the platform with the MSI Pro5, another i board.
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? The rest of the layout is standard. It was designed purely to drive the P4 into machines worldwide on cost grounds.

The increase in FSB should give us a healthy score increase. We’re within 1 second of the expected results so nothing is amiss. Here’s the board zsus.
The i will never win any performance benchmarks. At Mhz, SDR memory provides a maximum bandwidth of 1. When buying etehrnet board, be intelligent and try and use it as a sensible upgrade path to something higher performing. Therefore, with a little bit of ingenuity, there is nothing stopping you recording p4g own vocal POST messages.
All in all, quality BIOS. Roll on iD and an updated P4B. Easy to find the information you need and has excellent section on fitting devices and the CPU and heatsink. Good English, clear and well laid out.
Lastly in the layout, dotted around the board Installation was painless.
