The issue with this is that if you are browsing a p0rn site or checking your online bank balance the “spoofing” user will be able to intercept a copy of data originally intended for your computer. Once again, this arrangement proved to limit overclocking capabilities with a SATA drive, though the board was still capable with an IDE hard drive.

Soltek SL-K8AN2E-GR Motherboard Review

The best bandwidth was consistently at 9 to 11 at every speed, with TRas 10 always in the k8a2ne range at every speed. Socket Roundup, Part 3: There is also a useful range of chipset voltage adjustments missing from the Asus, and an HT range to 5X.

The pin ATX power and 4-pin 12V are both near board edges where they do not interfere with other components.

Many of us are already familiar with the nVidia onboard sound. Another departure k8an2r the usual for Soltek is the use of two DIMM connectors instead of the more common 3 connectors, which will be an issue to some end users. The floppy location will be a concern to some with a lower right edge location, but this will not likely be a problem in the cases that k8wn2e most likely to be combined with the value Soltek board.


We suspect that the Soltek can do much better than with lower ratios, but that is the current limit of the CPU range.

SL-K8AN2-GR/SL-K8AN2E-GR SOLTEK Motherboard Mainboard Drivers Manuals BIOS

Memory Stress Test Results: There is clearly room for 3 connectors; it even appears the board was designed for 3 dimm slots. Wednesday, September 15, When AMD started to include the hr memory controller with the processor core they removed one of the only items that separated the different chipsets in terms of performance. So, if this is an important feature, look elsewhere or plan to use an accessory PCI Firewire controller.

While GigaLAN capability is built into the chipset there still needs to be an interpreter chip to convert the chipset signals to something usable by the RJ45 connector Ethernet over copper. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.

Soltek K8AN2E-GR Mainboard

The board managed to reach a more respectable CPU setting the maximum available with the latest BIOS with an IDE drive, but this is still far short of the to that we have seen with other nForce boards. Front Side Bus Overclocking Testbed. As always the documentation is very thorough and consists of a quick start guide, motherboard and software manuals, driver disks and included utility software.

The process involves a user on the network “spoofing” their identity to make your computer think that their computer is the router to the outside world. We ran our own Memory Bandwidth tests with memtest86 with TRas settings from 5 to 15 at a wide range of different memory speeds. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. This motherboard doesn’t come with a huge number of included goodies but there should be enough to get you up and running with the bare minimums.


The Soltek is smaller than a full ATX size, but the layout is very good, better than you might expect in a smaller board. After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.

The CPU voltage options to just 1. Log in Don’t have an account? The range of overclocking controls and options on the Soltek are quite good, as we have come to expect of Soltek boards. Lower Ratio x 9 1: All-in-all, Soltek makes fewer compromises than the Chaintech VNF in their effort to control price of the board. The other controls that are needed for excellent overclocking with the Soltek are all here. While it is clear gg Soltek has designed the K8AN2E for value, like the Chaintech VNF, it is interesting that Soltek decided to implement most of the unique features of the nF family by using the premium Gb chipset instead of the cheaper nF
