Bij Tom's Hardware Guide is vandaag een review te vinden van de Asus CUBX, een Socket 370 plank met Intel's good old BX chipset aan boord. De lay-out is vrij relaxed met 6xPCI, 1xISA, 1xAGP, 0xAMR en 4xDIMM. Verder is de CUBX volgens Patrick Schmid in staat om op 150MHz bussnelheid te draaien:
Adding together all features of the CUBX shows that Asus raises the claim to have one of the best BX motherboards ever. Two things could have been better though. I am still not quite sure about the origin of the one crash I encountered, but that may be nothing. However, I have to moan a bit about the PLL-chip used on the board. It does not offer 1 MHz increments of the FSB as typically found on Abit products, which can be a rather important feature for overclockers, particularly if you try and overclock Celeron processors with high mulitpliers. Six PCI and one ISA slot is the maximum, I don't think that there's any motherboard with seven slots. I also doubt that many people are going to equip all four DIMM sockets.
The board ran stable up to 150 MHz and also allows you to use the cheap Celeron processors, which have been announced up to 700 MHz now. Regarding features, performance and overclocking, Asus provides an excellent motherboard once again. What a pity that BX can't stay forever.
If you are an overclocker or computer freak, than you should have a good look at the CUBX, as it might serve as reliable basis for quite a long time.
