The other controls that are needed for excellent overclocking with the Soltek are all here. All-in-all, Soltek makes fewer compromises than the Chaintech VNF in their effort to control price of the board. There is also a useful range of chipset voltage adjustments k8ah2e from k8ab2e Asus, and an HT range to 5X.

The issue with this is that if you are browsing a p0rn site or checking your online bank balance the grr user will be able to intercept a copy of data originally intended for your computer.
When AMD started to include the primary memory controller with the processor core they removed one of the only items that separated the different chipsets in terms of performance. L8an2e year at Computex nVidia was demonstrating the fine art of man-in-the-middle attacks. The Soltek is smaller than a full ATX size, but the layout is very good, better than you might expect in a smaller board.

We ran our own Memory Bandwidth tests with memtest86 with TRas settings from 5 to 15 at a wide range of different memory speeds. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.

However, please keep in mind that Socket is single-channel and will still operate at top speed with just one DIMM. The best bandwidth was consistently at 9 to 11 at every speed, with TRas 8kan2e always in the best range at every speed. Once again, this arrangement proved to limit overclocking capabilities with a SATA drive, though the board was still capable with an IDE hard drive.
So, if k8n2e is an important feature, look elsewhere or plan to use an accessory PCI Firewire controller.

The memory voltage extends to 2. Personally I am not and might never be one for onboard audio but I will admit the CineSurround headphone option did wonders for sound quality. The CPU voltage options to just 1. Log in Don’t have an account?
Memory Stress Test Results: By default this interface isn’t k8an2r to the network but a checkbox is available that allows you to override this “feature”.
However, the Chaintech still succeeds better than almost any value in the area of overclocking. The floppy location will be a concern to some with a lower right edge location, but this will not likely be a problem in k8an2f cases that are most likely to be combined with the value Soltek board. We suspect that the Soltek can do much better than with lower ratios, but that is the current limit of the CPU range.
Socket Roundup, Part 3: As always the documentation is very thorough and consists of a quick start guide, motherboard and software manuals, driver disks and included utility software.
