The K8N-E is typical Asus, which means that the layout is very good indeed. Also, the HT range only extends to 4X in large 1X increments – a range to 5X like many competitors with finer 0. This was more than a bit surprising, considering some of the excellent nForce 2 designs with an Asus name. The Asus K8N-E Deluxe motherboard comes in the standard ‘Asus brown’ shade, and maintains a pretty good component layout that won’t cause too many headaches when you go to install it.

Perhaps this is a concession to the K8N-E appearing late in the cycle, but we were particularly dismayed chipse memory voltage adjustments that top out at 2. Manufacturers have heard our complaints, yes and the quality of sound and features has certainly gone up!

It’s handy for those of us wth high end cards with memory RAMsinks. The pin ATX connector and 4-pin 12V are almost ideal, since both are out of the way on board edges and do not need to be snaked over or around any components.
We were more than a bit surprised, however, to find the uneven range of adjustment options on the K8N-E. Only the top edge between the CPU socket and the rear IO is a concern, with a row of capacitors and coils close to the socket.
The K8N-E is typical Asus, which means that the layout is very good indeed. Beginners Guides Cases and Access. Frequent readers of PCStats know that I have ripped a lot of older onboard audio codec’s for sapping too much CPU power and providing low quality audio.

Except for the inadequate memory voltages available, the overclocking controls are OK, if not noteworthy.
Asus is normally masterful in their board layouts, with careful attention to function and placement of board components. Fortunately, the capacitors are on the short side, making it likely that most big overhanging heatsinks will clear the caps. Asus did not include any chipset voltage adjustments at all on the K8N-E, a feature that many chkpset miss.
If you’re an enthusiast it’s a very exciting and expensive time, so it’s no surprise that many consumers have decided to lay low till the dust settles. By now it should be clear that is a transition year between old and new technologies.

IDE connectors are in our preferred upper right edge location, though Asus has placed the floppy connector on the bottom right edge of the board – a less desirable location in many case layouts.
