Wednesday, September 15, Lower Ratio x 9 1: While GigaLAN capability is built into the chipset there still needs to be an interpreter chip to convert the chipset signals to something usable by the RJ45 connector Ethernet over copper.

Socket 754 Roundup, Part 3: Asus, Soltek & DFI

The Soltek is smaller than a full ATX size, but the layout is very good, better than you might expect in a smaller board. This chip is called a PHY Physical layer chip and negotiates ge transfers between the network and chipset.

The range of overclocking controls and options on the Soltek are quite good, as we have come to expect of Soltek boards. The other controls that are needed for excellent overclocking with the Soltek are all here. The process involves a user on the network “spoofing” their identity to make your computer think that their computer is the router to the outside world.


Once again, this arrangement proved to limit overclocking capabilities with a SATA drive, though the board was still capable with an IDE hard drive. The memory voltage extends to 2. We suspect that the Soltek can do much better than with lower ratios, but that is the current limit of the CPU range.

The main IDE connectors are located in the preferred upper right edge. Log in Don’t have an account?

The board managed to reach a more respectable CPU setting the maximum available with the latest BIOS with an IDE drive, but this is still far l8an2e of the to that we have seen k8a2ne other nForce boards. All-in-all, Soltek makes fewer compromises than the Chaintech VNF in their effort to control price of the board.

The floppy location will be a concern to some with a lower right edge location, but this will not likely be a problem in the cases that are most likely to be combined with the value Soltek board. Personally I am not and might never be one for onboard audio but I will admit the CineSurround headphone option did wonders for sound quality. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me.

The best bandwidth was consistently at 9 to 11 at every speed, with TRas 10 always gf the best range at every speed. However, the Chaintech still succeeds better ggr almost any value in the area of overclocking. Another departure from the usual for Soltek is the use of two DIMM k8an2 instead of the more common 3 connectors, which will be an issue to some end users.


Wednesday, September 15, By default this interface isn’t viewable to the network but a checkbox is available that allows you to override this “feature”. As always the documentation is very thorough and consists of a quick start guide, motherboard and software manuals, driver disks and included utility software. K8am2e careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.

Many of us are already familiar with the nVidia onboard sound.

The firewall and network configurations are administered via a convenient web interface that incidentally is served up over Apache located on the local machine.

The issue with this is that if you are browsing a p0rn site k8sn2e checking your online bank balance the “spoofing” user will be able to intercept a copy of data originally intended for your computer. Please update your k8qn2e and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.
