The Asus P4T533-C is a Pentium 4-compatible motherboard available with USB 1.1, USB 2.0, and 10/100Base-T Ethernet Ports. It supports 400 MHz or 533MHz FSB (Front Side Bus). A combination of the Pentium 4 with the Asus P4T533-C results in a perfect, high-performance platform for workstations and desktops. The motherboard is PC1066 DRDRAM-ready, despite the fact that the i850 chipset does not usually support this memory specification. The motherboard diagnoses with the help of the 'Post Reporter' system that provides vocal messages to the users if there are problems at the start. The Intel 850E-based motherboard supports up to 2GB of RDRAM with a maximum bandwidth of 4.2GB/s. The P4T533-C has a Q-Fan technology that controls the CPU fan speed when there are temperature changes. This feature ensures the reduction of noise in the machine. There are several dip switches and on-board jumpers on the Asus P4t333-C motherboard. A set of these are specially used for modifying the V-core voltage, Over- clocking the frequency of the FSB, and changing from a jumper'oriented system to one that is BIOS-oriented. There is a set of Over-clocking functions provided on the Advanced BIOS menu such as the adjustable clock multiplier which can be set between 12X and 24X. The motherboard has a Realtek ALC650 sound-chip that provides users with 5.1 surround sound with the help of six audio channels inclusive of the centre base. One can play extremely advanced 3D games or use memory-intensive software on this motherboard without facing any problems due to the effective functioning and design of the Asus P4T533-C.
