To verify if a C2D processor will be powerful enough to allow the use of DDR memory coupled with a X4 PCIe slot to produce a build capable of playing today’s games without a significant drop in performance over the original single core CPU with a X16 slot. Socket P Computer Motherboard for Intel. There are many more features that this board offers. Super-Pi score was average of 3. Best Selling in Motherboards See all. Comments, suggestions, questions or if you’d rather direct those e-mails taking me to task for my heathen anti-AMD propaganda to a more public forum

Not quite what you were expecting?

ASRock 4CoreDual-VSTA, LGA775 Socket, Intel Motherboard

My computer wouldn’t start up properly until I figured this out. Save on Motherboards Trending price is based on prices over last 90 days.

SATA – connector s: ATA – connector s: This will cause no end of problems. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended.

ASRock > 4CoreDual-VSTA

The stock settings for the C2D were left at default settings low. The performance oriented crowd will often snub these products due to their sometimes quirky nature but you cannot deny their value.


I knew that this upgrade path would only offer moderate improvements to daily use, and that I would more than likely take a hit in gaming performance. If you don’t happen to have a good sound card, no fears. This happened to me and I didn’t see what the problem was at first.

Where do we go from here? S Core2Duo E 4M cache, stock 2.

C2Ds have been ripping through super-pi scores since their release, and with the limitations of the motherboard I wasn’t asrocm the sub 20 numbers others have reported on OC’d rigs. Super-Pi score was average of 3.

Socket Computer Motherboard for Intel. Socket 5 Computer Motherboard 4coredula Intel. Placement of 20 pin power connector makes cable management near impossible. That said, I wasn’t looking for a strong performer, I was looking for a board which would allow me a cost effective entry into the world of C2D with an eye to upgrading in the future.

Log in Don’t have an account? My old motherboard fried and I was looking for a suitable replacement for a good price.

Instead, my intent is to examine a budget upgrade path for S single core users. Made for compatibility with a wide variety of memory, drives, etc.

ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2: Sneak Peek

For a cashed strapped or frugal S single core user I strongly recommend you consider this path if you find yourself never quite able to commit to a full build. This benchmark was written long before anybody considered running two cores on a desktop system so I’m at a loss as to why the C2D performed as well as it did, but, aside from the apparent imbalance that’s not a bad thing. Timings for C2D were 1t.


Comments, suggestions, questions or if you’d rather direct those e-mails taking me to task for my heathen anti-AMD propaganda to a more public forum ASRock has built a very good reputation on offering these types of solutions. The chipset is an older one that only vstaa up to DDR2 Would it have cost too much to include a 1 cent jumper for the cmos reset pins?????

There must be a catch! Best Selling in Motherboards See all. I wanted to salvage as much as possible from my old setup. Asrock has only been around sincebut since then they’ve made quite a name c4oredual themselves as a 4coreedual of budget priced motherboards to fill just about any niche. I am actually thinking of purchasing a second one to keep in my inventory.
