ASRock ConRoe 1333-DVI/H and Intel E2140 Budget System Review
Today, we take a look at ASRock's latest ConRoe-1333-DVI/H micro ATX board aimed at the budget minded and put in the lowest priced Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2140 for a test drive. Hopefully, we can get some free performance by overclocking!

I have no question that this E2140 will hit 400FSB or 3.2Ghz. 355 is the max as PCIe bus speed is now at 122, vcore fefault. At 123, the SATA HDD is lost.

Did not quite like the S-bridge passive heatsink getting as high as >54C, the N-bridge is okay at ~45-48C. I added my own specially wired 2x 40x10mm ~5,000 rpm to a single 4-pin molex on them.:)

Same 40mm that comes with Chill Vent?

I was interested to read about the method of pin modding the E2140; any chance of loading a photo to the forums? There are loads of photos of people using a conductive pen but this mod is unusual. Cheers.
