Asus P4C800-E: Board Layout


Asus did not make any real changes in the layout of the P4C800-E, compared to the original P4C800 Deluxe. However, they did listen to customers and rotated the huge passive North Bridge heatsink 45 degrees.



This allows customers to mount any of the oversize heatsinks available form Zalman, Alpha, Thermaright and others. The recent versions of the P4C800 Deluxe that we have seen also mount the heatsink in this way.

    Thank you for your excellent review. To have the
    P4C800-E support both RAID 0 and RAID 1, would two
    disks in RAID 0 configuration be connected to the two ICH5R SATA ports and another two disks in RAID
    0 configuration be connected to the two Promise
    PDC20378 SATA ports and then these two 2 disk RAID 0 arrays be configured to RAID 1 (mirroring)?

    Using two WD raptors with the Asus P4c800-E want to run in Raid 0. I get in the raid set up but when I try to install windows [XP pro] I load the raid drivers {F6] window loads drivers.When it says loading windows for about two mins I get blue screen error something about drives or controllers not con figured. Could you shed some light on this problem. Works fine when using sata [non raid] Thanks NW Reply

    OK, I vaguely remember the 1.5 vs 2.0 issue for Prescott. However, what about the 100+ watts that made a problem with motherboard power supplies? Has this issue been resolved? The Asus web site and the manual state, "New power design supports next generation Intel PrescottCPU. Does this mean this motherboard has fixed the power issue. Also, what CPU heat sink/fan combination was used for the testing with 250+MHz FSB? Reply

    I believe the manual's reference to the ATI card versions is concerning the old problems with stability and enabling AGP 8x on early versions of these video cards on AGP 8x motherboards. I have a 1 year old 9700 Pro running perfectly on this motherboard at 8x with fast writes enabled, but I am not overclocking. Reply
