Jeff Lee van GamePC heeft een review online gekegeld van het Asus CUV4X VIA Apollo Pro 133Z moederbord met 1xAGP Pro, 5xPCI, 1xISA, 1xAMR en 3xDIMM. Het plankje bleek zeer relaxt te zijn voor overklokken: een P3-500 draaide stabiel op 800MHz met een FSB van 160MHz:
Overclocking is done through the BIOS or onboard dip switches, the CUV4X offers front side bus settings going up to 166 MHz. Though we doubt a CPU can use that high of a FSB due to AGP and PCI cards flaking out, it is quite enticing to try your luck. Along with the fact that memory divider are on this motherboard front side bus speed up to 150 is possible. Our overclocking experience was quite good, right off we were able to hit 667 MHz (133 MHz) without any problems. Pushing our test bed a little further we hit 750 MHz (150 MHz), which we were glad to see. In the past our 750-775 was basically our limit but we decided to go one more step and try the 160 front side bus setting. And proving many of us wrong, the CUV4X posted and worked at 800 MHz (160 MHz). Being our first motherboard to actually overclock our P3 500 to 800 was quite a joy. Though we did notice the speed improvement in Windows, benchmarking showed us some interesting facts. Memory performance dropped like a rock due to the -33 memory setting. Drive marks and Graphics marks however skyrocketed. So there is a little give and take action going on here when overclocking with this motherboard.
