However, in our opinion, an ability to raise the CPU voltage even by a little has become reasonable for any full-size system board based on discrete chipset. Finally, the ability to save BIOS settings in 2 profiles is clearly borrowed from the more expensive models. It is important to realize that overclocking performance varies by system board and is, to some extent, an individual characteristic of each specific unit. Northbridge heat sink copes well with cooling the board. This is in line with the ASUS vision of creating environment-friendly and recyclable products and packaging to safeguard consumers’ health while minimizing the impact on the environment.

However, from the consumer’s viewpoint any competition even internal is definitely for the good, because it broadens the choice. Posted on Feb 05, How can this be resolved. I have freestanding Series 8 dishwasher. The practical goal of our test is to find out if the CPU’s high overclocking potential is hindered by the board mitherboard to evaluate the board’s behavior in non-standard BIOS modes. Just a thought, look for updates at the Asus site, not Windows Update. The board’s design, in general, is good.

While lowering the price is most likely out of the question in this case, because it is already not very high for a discrete chipset with good functionality.

Morherboard certain modes under load they may “squeak”, and such high-pitch noise is audible even in computers with noisy cooling systems. In all fairness, morherboard must note that the differences in noise levels of the left and right channel should not be attributed to all units of this model, but are likely an exception. Please refer specification pages for full details. Do you have the bit or bit version of Windows 7 Ultimate installed?

ASUS MyLogo2 You motherboarc convert your favorite photo into a color boot logo for a more colorful and vivid image on your screen. All capacitors are brand name, made by Matsushita, Rubycon and Sanyo.

A more attractive mode of “intelligent” overclocking, where the clock rate is increased only when the CPU is under maximum load, which many ASUS boards provide in their BIOS, is not implemented for this system board. Please refer to the specification page The product electricalelectronic equipment, Mercury-containing button cell battery should not be placed in municipal waste. Technology, which monitors system operation and automatically adjusts CPU voltage and frequency for a cool and quiet environment.


In order to evaluate the overclocked system’s stability, we load Windows XP and run performance tests built into WinRAR Tools menu – Benchmark and hardware test for 10 minutes. Laan heat sink copes well with cooling the board. It’s worth a thousand words. The effect is expected to be quite significant, because the heat sink is located near the CPU socket and has tall fins that are oriented accordingly. Chipset’s heat emission is not high and doesn’t depend much on the amount of load, because it doesn’t have an integrated graphics core.

It is mounted to the chassis using six screws, however the board’s design makes any sagging of the unsecured side while connecting the peripheral ports unlikely. Add Your Answer Tips for a great answer: Asus did not release any drivers for the M2V for any version of Windows 7. Lately during the filling cycle water hammer is occurring.
