Combined with a number of other factors including a mature DDR DRAM market with an availability of good modules, putting together a good Athlon XP box is easier than ever and performance has never been better. If the Ram permits, running aggressive timings will result in a performance increase. I don’t know about any other online hardware reviewer, but before a new article this one likes to have a good think about whatever it is he’s reviewing to get a good ‘angle’ on things and hopefully spit out a decent read after all the Homesite abuse has stopped. I do have a small speaker attached to the board. Make sure to check your USB cables which are often overlooked when a problem occurs. Performance-wise, its a go-getter. These drivers should be installed on-top of a successfull nForce driver install.

As you can imagine, this would make it difficult to install multiple devices because most cards have only two channels.

ASUS A7N8X-X – motherboard – ATX – nForce2 Overview – CNET

Anyways, feel free to bump it once in a while if necessary. Kudos to the sound controller. As far as pure performance goes, having a SingleChannel memory controller doesn’t cut performance in half. You need to have your kernel sources installed to use this technique BTW. These drivers should be installed on-top of a successfull nForce driver install. Other game mostly old ones fail to detect it as an EAX capable sound device. If you have a different kernel, it is better to download either a source rpm to rebuild it or the drivers sources in tar.


I have had no problems not to mention fast performance from this board, although the BIOS does have a little overclockability, it doesn’t give much, I think more for stability reasons than anything else.

You do not want to run PC Ram at mhz. On to the south bridge. If you have a RedHat based distribution, there are binary RPMs available for download for certain versions a7n8xx the 2.

ASUS A7N8X-X – motherboard – ATX – nForce2 400

Codenamed nForce2 Ultra it adds explicit, default chipset voltage, MHz running and Overall, this board is a great one at mforce moment, but kind of spendy, as most ASUS boards are. I have the board with the Realtek chip and I just cannot get it to work. Sign up for freeit takes 30 seconds.

Thx Didou for your swift reply, but i have tried the speaker connector both ways and the bios is set to on. Yet no one else seems to have a problem. I tried pinging it and pinging another computer from it A7n8d-x you’re still having problems, you might need a stronger PSU or you can try connecting your devices to an USB hub with its own power supply.

Spread your USB devices across the different controllers. There’s only one device known to have problems on this aa7n8x-x. TechSpot Account Sign up for freeit takes 30 seconds. By reading this site you agree to our cookie policy. Ask a question and give support.

Just as for the source rpm, you need to have your kernel sources installed for this technique to work. When uploading, image is often incomplete, visual bugs are present, etc.


During this complex thought process sitting down in front of the TV with a barrel of coffee it occurred to me that azus current generation Athlon XP platform processors and motherboards mainly is entering the golden stage of its career. Enable the 3Com from the BIOS before installing Windows as enabling it later seems to bring more problems than anything.

So before I move on to ASUS’ explicit implementation, lets have a quick recap of the features the chipset brings to the table.

The speaker is one of them small ones that seem to be taking over from the standard round metal types, do you think this could make a difference. I do have a small speaker attached to the board.

TechSpot is dedicated to computer enthusiasts and power users. When a7n88x-x hook up speakers to the onboard sound card, it will use them for the Speech Reporter but I do not know if it is capable of using speakers hooked up to another sound card for the same functions I doubt it.

I personally aus like connecting from the power supply as you can no longer control the fan, so I had to buy a fan controller for my system, not a bad choice, but just kind of annoying that there isn’t enough onboard power connectors.
