When the board is overclocked, this little BGA heatsinks gets warm, so point a fan in its direction if you feel it is holding things back. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. As you will see in our benchmark results, this lack of consistent OC controls with broad ranges is really a shame, since the Asus K8N-E is a fast board. Manufacturers have heard our complaints, yes and the quality of sound and features has certainly gone up! The nForce3 GB chipset gets passed off with a dead silent, totally passive heatsink that is kind small. Some of the fastest current memory requires 2. This was more than a bit surprising, considering some of the excellent nForce 2 designs with an Asus name.

As you will see in our benchmark results, this lack of consistent OC controls with broad ranges is really a shame, since the Asus K8N-E is a fast board. Perhaps this is a concession to the K8N-E appearing late in the cycle, but we were particularly dismayed by memory voltage adjustments that top out at 2.

While 6 SATA connections are nice, you will see in our overclocking tests that this arrangement makes serious overclocking with a SATA drive all but impossible.
