Socket Computer Motherboard for Intel. No ratings or reviews yet. Personal preference dictates that a top edge placement is best for me, however anywhere near the top extremities isn’t a bad thing. Last of all the extra power connectors and the ATX supply. Skip to main content. Lastly in the layout, dotted around the board Installation was painless.

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 motherboagd.

The means all P4 Socket sinks are guaranteed to always fit so there will be no questions like on some AMD boards when using 80mm sinks like the Alpha and Swiftech’s famous MC range.

People who bought this also bought. This means the item has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to full working order and is in excellent condition.

Best Selling in Mothernoard See all. Finally, a quick run of Aquanox at the higher FSB gives us the following.

Layout and bundle are both fine with no problems at all. As expected, with all other things static and the FSB increasing, we see the expected score increase of points. Every is as it should be in that respect.


Dropping down the multiplier to 16 again and increasing the FSB would hopefully mothegboard a speed somewhere in the middle of and Sandra lets us check that the host chipset is letting the CPU perform properly with the 2 CPU benchmarks plus a quick look at the theoretical memory bandwidth of the system.

This allows you to get away with not needing a proper P4 compatible PSU for that connector and just use a spare molex. The Intel INF update noted that no update was indeed necessary and the operating system had all the needed drivers.

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.

Intel have been slashing the price of their Pentium 4 processors for quite some time now.

Intel have sensibly standardised the area around the tiny socket and physically closed it off using the heatsink mounting assembly. What was the best tech product of ?

They’ve morherboard advantage of the AC’97 implementation in the ICH2 and provided the headers and connectors needed for on board sound. It’s just a shame about the overall performance. The ICH2 takes care of everything else. We’ll visit a pair of 2Ghz benchmarks, 20 x and 15 x and this time round we’ll drop the 1. To give the system a fair chance I chose 1.


The board also fully supports the upcoming Northwood processors and while SDR memory is the worst memory type to pair such high performing processors with, it’s nice to know that the upgrade path is there, using the P4B as a stopgap before investing in a new higher performing board.

I noted that motherboaard P4T-E didn’t like 16 x for Mhz. This resulting decrease in price lets system builders worldwide get the P4 out to the masses for less money than a i based system with RAMBUS memory.

Everything is laid out logically, accessing the CPU settings is easy and the memory settings also have their own sections. As far as expansion and upgrade capability, the P4B is great.
