Only the top edge between the CPU socket and the rear IO is a concern, with a row of capacitors and coils close to the socket. Asus is normally masterful in their board layouts, with careful attention to function and placement of board components.

If you need to connect a floppy, make sure that you pay close attention to the location of the floppy in your case compared to the K8N-E. As you cuipset see in our benchmark results, this lack of consistent OC controls with broad ranges is really a shame, since the Asus K8N-E is a fast board.
ASUS K8N-E – motherboard – ATX – Socket – nForce3 Gb Overview – CNET
This was more than a bit surprising, considering some of the excellent nForce 2 designs with an Asus name. Except for the inadequate memory voltages available, the overclocking controls are OK, if not noteworthy. By now it should be clear that is a transition year between old and new technologies.
The pin ATX connector and 4-pin 12V are almost ideal, since both are out of the way on board edges and do not need to be snaked over or around any components.
ASUS K8N-E Deluxe – motherboard – ATX – Socket 754 – nForce3 250Gb Series
Also, the HT range only extends to 4X in large 1X increments k8nn-e a range to 5X like many competitors with finer 0. The Asus K8N-E Deluxe motherboard comes in the standard ‘Asus brown’ shade, and maintains a pretty good component layout that won’t cause too many headaches when you go to install it. If you’re an enthusiast it’s a very exciting and expensive time, so it’s no surprise that many consumers have decided chioset lay low till the dust settles.
Manufacturers have heard our complaints, yes and the quality of sound and features has certainly gone up! As you can see from the picture on the right, Asus has implemented a new type of videocard locking slot. Fortunately, the capacitors are on the short side, making it likely that most big overhanging heatsinks will clear the caps. Frequent readers of PCStats know that I have ripped a lot of older onboard audio codec’s for sapping too much CPU power and providing low quality audio.
It’s certainly easier to use than the older systems which required a switch, and can be accessed from both the top and bottom. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. Socket Roundup, Part 3: While 6 SATA connections are nice, you will see in our overclocking tests that this arrangement makes serious overclocking with a SATA drive all but impossible.

All-in-all, the K8N-E is a really mixed bag, with some adjustments that are exemplary, and others, missing or downright crude. Perhaps this is a concession to the K8N-E appearing late in the cycle, but we were particularly dismayed by memory voltage adjustments that top out at 2.
If you’re world revolves around overclocking, this is a big limitation.
