Overclocking with the P4S Dragon Ultra

I’m happy to announce that overclocking, as with the P4ISR is another dream come true with the P4S Dragon Ultra. In addition to the capability of adjusting the front side bus in 1MHz selections, the board features Vcore adjustments from 1.100V up to 1.850V in .025 intervals making it somewhat a great solution to get the maximum performance out of your Pentium 4.

The P4S Bundle

As already mentioned earlier in the review, Soyo included an external audio module to fully take advantage of the C-Media 6ch audio solution. The module features a center/bass input and rear left/right outputs, optical and spdif for the ins and outs.

Another interesting and at the same time handy addition to the P4S bundle is the external USB header featuring a total of four extra USB 2.0 ports. The module fits into a floppy drive bay and can also be used in a standard cd-rom bay using the included adapter.

Three ATA/100/133 cables are thoughtfully included, as well as one FDD and two additional cables for the exterior USB header. The board comes with a detailed manual covering everything from the features to a detailed troubleshooting section. A Drivers CD is enclosed along with another CD featuring 8 handy applications.
