Can you say consistent? You can find products similar to this one for sale below. We’re running the Valley of the Jaguar Timedemo included in the publicly available demo. If you’re looking for a solid, feature-laden motherboard, you can do considerably worse than the A7VE. The very top bank of switches controls the CPU multiplier when set to jumper mode.

And there you have it. Let’s have a look at the results. We see three DDR banks that are thoughtfully placed. We had to manually set the DDR voltage to 2. The Asus seems to fall short of this little bit extra, it does a lot of things well but fails to set our world on fire. These extra bays are to provide extra power for those hungry video cards, but how many AGP Pro video cards have we seen lately?

Let’s see how they shaped up. What have we here??? By reducing the multiplier to 8x, we were able to hit a stable FSB of Mhz. Perhaps we’re being a bit over-critical, but we’ve seen some truly excellent motherboards come through the door recently. The RAID ports are located above the main IDE ports, we’d wish Asus aueio differentiate the ports like most other manufacturers do, a completely different colour would have sufficed.

All benchmarks were conducted at xx32 85Hz with vertical sync disabled. It appears as if the better memory optimisations, coupled with running memory asynchronously, really help the MSI here.

However, even when set to jumper-free, you still have to manually change the DDR voltage by jumpers. The board also has a fail-safe booting mechanism. This AGP Pro uses 2 extra bays, 1x20pin at the front and 1x18pin bay at the back.

ASUS A7V266 KT266 Motherboard

The Asus, whilst not the a7vv266, is certainly in the top half of those that we tested. If, for any reason, you cannot load Windows and have to switch the machine off, it will then next audik by automatically clearing CMOS by itself, thereby ensuring that BIOS defaults are loaded. BIOS duty is handled by Award. We’re somewhat under-whelmed by the performance of the Asus with the stock XP.

The BIOS itself is fairly intuitive and reasonably easy to navigate. This new riser design makes way for cost effective solutions such as Audio, Modem, Network Cards, 5. Our strict timings and use of the performance-enhancing 1T command certainly pay dividends here. That’s not to say that Asus have not been busy in the retail channel, just one look at their extensive product catalogue informs you of that.

Three Kings is the DVD of choice, it’s mixture of action and dialogue make it an excellent benchmarking test.


Review: Asus A7VE RAID Motherboard – Mainboard –

Using slightly stricter settings resulted in failed boot-ups. Let’s pay a visit to page 1 of our benchmarker’s Bible and try the old favourite that is Quake 3. I’m sure OEM system builders will be more than happy at the inclusion of this little chip, as it almost precludes the need for a true hardware solution. You receive an excellently written main instruction manual, a quick setup guide for those who simply want to fire the motherboard up with the minimum of reading, a USB 1.

Everything is stowed away neatly.

ASUS A7V266-C – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT266A

If you’re looking for a solid, feature-laden motherboard, you can do considerably worse than the A7VE. While most of the KTA and KT chipset based boards have an active cooling setup, the board supplied to us only had the small green passive coolers that we see on older style BX boards.

Vcore can be raised from 1. Pifast calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible.
