Cooling efficiency is standard, in similarity to the other tested system boards, even during long periods of maximum load and with no additional air flows. Despite the summer heat and three hour long game testing its heat sinks didn’t warm up enough to demonstrate all of the above situations. Since it was a replacment, the speed was important. RAM is set by using multiplier correction to the standard frequency for the modules being used, unless the manufacturer specifies methods for improving memory overclocking, in which case their effectiveness is also explored. Computer Motherboards for AMD. Overclocking In order to evaluate the overclocking capabilities of the board and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed CPU to the highest frequency possible that also allows for stable operation.

The ability to save BIOS settings in 2 profiles is also a nice feature. It may prevent one from installing a non-standard bulky cooler onto the CPU. xhipset

ASUS M2A-VM HDMI, AM2+, AMD Motherboard

Nevertheless, the other tests have shown almost no difference. AMD Socket 7 Motherboard. In other words, microchips that actually exceed the projected heat emission value are automatically discarded.

In order to cause chipset overheating too many conditions need to be provided. If it doesn’t exceed W we need not worry about additional cooling and let the heat sinks do their job!

For example, the temperature inside a computer case must rise to degrees C, but even then the first thing to suffer will probably be vhipset hard drive, then the graphics cards, which traditionally operate in thermally intensive conditions in most computers. Tiny, feature-rich, convenient bargain.


The asuss limitation is that only a monitor with a digital-in port can be connected through the on-board DVI since no analog component DVI-I is provided in this particular port. This model at the manufacturer’s web-site.

This value is in the denominator of the formula, so it wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that every extra watt counts in the case of passive cooling. Products may not be available in all markets.

Old motherboard was runed when owner updated BIOS and it screwed up the motherboard. It is enhanced with an ACPI mad function to provide efficient power management for advanced operating systems. Overclocking In order to evaluate the overclocking capabilities of the board and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed CPU to the highest frequency possible that also allows for stable operation. The set of brand utilities includes: The lowest-priced item that has been used or worn previously.

The motherboard was in great shape and works perfect. M2a-gm specifications are subject to change without notice.

ASUS M2A-VM – Motherboard Based on AMD G (Socket AM2) Chipset

Cgipset frequency to the default value in case of excessive overclocking works every time, one only has to reboot the computer again. Please check with your supplier for exact offers. Ratings and Reviews Write a review. The practical goal of our test is to find out if the CPU’s asux overclocking potential is hindered by the board and to evaluate the board’s behavior in non-standard BIOS modes.


Socket AM2 Computer Motherboards. Also included is Norton Internet Security anti-virus and n2a-vm. In that case it will be hard to elevate the temperature even by a degree above normal, and after the adverse conditions have been eliminated the temperature will quickly return to the initial value.

See details for description of any imperfections. A good example of that are graphics card PCIe-AGP bridges with heat generation of a couple of watts that often don’t have any heat sinks and become burning-hot to touch.

Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. While it may not have the sheer wealth of goodies provided by its older brethren, it certainly makes up for it with compact convenience.
