ASUS CUV4X DRIVER DOWNLOAD
The only normal looking trace up there is the one labeled ‘reboot’, which I got after a warm reboot of the system. I canceled the benchmark, went to Windows, and ran the Norton benchmark. I then set the 3D Mark demo to a continuous loop, and left it running overnight. I tried a flash update to the BIOS from version to , but this had no effect on the benchmark variation. I tried out a new Celeron-2 flip-chip. The initial setup included: One thing I hadn’t tried at this point was changing the CPU.

Unfortunately, even with a core voltage of 1.
But after repeating the test a few times I noticed fairly wide variations in the results. I just asud to do a quick check and see what kind of system rating I would get with Norton Utilities Unfortunately, at the time of this review, we only had 1 Celeron-2 chip available for testing, so I’m not sure if these results are typical.
If you can put up with the slow boot times, the board will do a very good job of asue Pentium III processors. One thing I hadn’t tried at this point was changing the CPU.
The chart below shows the Norton Benchmark variability at this speed. All-in-all, the CUV4X is a very nice board. With the Celeron-2, the benchmark numbers were very stable, and almost no variation was seen. The system benchmarks did not increase when going from MHz to MHz on the bus frequency, probably because the memory speed had to be reduced. One thing that irritated me about the overclock settings was that they did not go in order in the BIOS menu, but rather, jumped all around, forcing you to scroll the long list to find the speed you wanted.

How much of a speed boost do you get at to MHz? The chart below shows some of the kinds of variability I observed. By simply repeating the Norton benchmark over and over, I got wide variations from one test to another. Still, MHz on the front side bus is very respectable. At MHz, that is probably acceptable behavior. At this setting, the system was running at MHz, with a memory speed of MHz.

I tried higher and lower core voltages, but the system refused to boot. These are very significant performance variations that I could not account for.
I vuv4x a flash update to the BIOS from version tobut this had no effect on the benchmark variation. I then overclocked the E chip to MHz, with a core voltage of 1. Lack of Celeron-2 performance variability: The results were quite puzzling.

I then set the 3D Mark demo to a continuous loop, and left it running overnight. Virtually identical results were also obtained after running other programs e.
The next thing I wanted to test was overclock stability, for which I used the newest version of 3D Mark version 1. I even tried a different power supply, also without effect on the variability.
The slow boot times and inconsistent performance results suggest to me that they need asu work on the board design some more. As I’ve said in previous reviews, I’d rather not see an audio modem riser, or on-board audio. The next available speed was 85MHz. While I’m really glad that Flip-Chip-capable motherboards are finally becoming more commonplace, I hope that in the future, they have a little more polish than the original release of the Asus CUV4X.
You will also notice the dip in the dark blue line at the 4th test above.

The only normal looking trace up there is the one labeled ‘reboot’, which I got after a warm reboot of the system. It took 57 seconds for a complete warm reboot, and 67 seconds for aasus complete cold boot. The overall boot time was also longer than normal for a clean system.
All overclock testing was done with a core voltage setting of 1. The motherboard correctly recognized the cuvx, and booted up still a noticeably long boot time.
