I canceled the benchmark, went to Windows, and ran the Norton benchmark. All-in-all, the CUV4X is a very nice board. I just wanted to do a quick check and see what kind of system rating I would get with Norton Utilities The next step was to try MHz on the front side bus. However, overclocking stability was very good with the CUV4X. If you can put up with the slow boot times, the board will do a very good job of overclocking Pentium III processors. Now it was time to go for broke, and try MHz on the front side bus.

Still, MHz on the front side bus is very respectable.
If you can put up with the slow boot times, the board will do a very good job of overclocking Pentium III processors. The first thing I checked was if the system resources were declining.

I tried 2 other CUV4X motherboards, and got similar results. The Norton scores went from an average of aboutto an average of about The initial setup included: I just wanted to do a quick check and see what kind of system rating I would get with Norton Utilities These are very significant performance variations that I could not account for. The chart below shows some of the kinds of variability I observed. The variability was still quite noticeable, as shown in the chart below.
I canceled the benchmark, went to Windows, and ran the Norton benchmark. I then overclocked the E chip to MHz, with a core voltage of 1.
I then set the 3D Mark fuv4x to a continuous loop, and left it running overnight. If you need an external COM 2, then you will need to install a back panel plate with a ribbon cable connection to the motherboard.
The list below shows the results. The results were quite puzzling.

The other trace, labeled “After full 3D Mark” was obtained after running 3D Mark through an entire benchmark. At MHz, that is asuss acceptable behavior. Now it was time to go for broke, and try MHz on the front side bus. Pentium III overclock stability seemed better than Celeron-2 overclockability, but we did not have extra Celeron-2s around to test, so we can’t say for sure.
However, overclocking stability was very good with the CUV4X. The Y axis is exaggerated again. The next available speed was 85MHz. At first I thought the system wasn’t going to boot. Cuv44x next step was to try MHz on the front side bus.
But after repeating the test a few times I noticed fairly wide variations in the results. The Y axis is exaggerated to show my point.
However, there was almost no variation in Norton benchmark cub4x from run to run. I tried a flash update to the BIOS from asuss tobut this had no effect on the benchmark variation. You will also notice the dip in the dark blue line at the 4th test above. This was not the case.
The variability was intermittent, and did not occur after every reboot, or after every run of a 3D application. When I returned the next morning, the demo had dropped out to the desktop, but the system had not hung.
I tried out a new Celeron-2 flip-chip.

I asux that with a core voltage of 1. As I’ve said in previous reviews, I’d rather not see an audio modem riser, or on-board audio.
So that extra 20 seconds in the beginning carries through the entire boot process.
