This was more than a bit surprising, considering some of the chpset nForce 2 designs with an Asus name. 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.

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. Asus did not include any chupset voltage adjustments at all on the K8N-E, a feature that many will miss.

IDE connectors are in our preferred upper right edge location, though Asus has placed chipeet floppy connector on the bottom right edge of the board – a less desirable location in many case layouts. As you will 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.

Also, the HT range only extends to 4X in large 1X increments – a range to 5X like many competitors with finer 0.

All-in-all, the K8N-E is a really mixed bag, with some adjustments that are exemplary, and others, missing or downright crude. Asus is normally masterful in their board layouts, with careful attention to function and placement of board components. Fortunately, the capacitors are on the short side, making it likely that most big overhanging heatsinks will clear the caps.

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.

Except for the inadequate memory voltages available, the overclocking controls are OK, if not noteworthy. We were more than a bit surprised, however, to find the uneven range of adjustment options on the K8N-E. The K8N-E is typical Asus, which means that the layout is very good indeed.
