The Asus at Mhz takes an expected lead in this test. What was the best tech product of ? This new riser design makes way for cost effective solutions such as Audio, Modem, Network Cards, 5. The performance delta was consistent from start to finish. This feature is quite handy if you push the board too far. Using our XP 13x , cooled with a modified dual-fan Taisol , and 1.

Motherboard Watch: Asus A7V266

When set to 1. Our visual preferences were xx32 Normal settings. This new riser design makes way for cost effective solutions such as Audio, Modem, Network Cards, 5. With only the 3 audio jacks on the standard ATX sound connector, the rear speakers plug into the blue line a7v626 and the center and sub channel’s share the mic port.

It appears so, the Asus can’t quite catch the MSI at default speeds but naturally edges ahead at overclocked speeds.

The fact that certain jumpers still have to be manipulated is a negative point. We tried to find the limit of the motherboard by using a factory-unlocked 1. This synthetic benchmark stresses the CPU, memory sub-system and graphics card to the limit. We appreciate that little touch.

We also disliked the inability to be able to turn the RAID controller off, this increased the boot up times by at least 10 seconds. If, for any reason, you cannot load Windows and have to switch the machine off, it will then next restart by automatically clearing CMOS by itself, thereby ensuring that BIOS defaults are loaded.

This boded well for our overclocking efforts. With CPU’s increasing in speed and more power than is needed, these devices don’t impact the system as bad as they have done in the past. Either way, the times posted are extremely impressive in their own right.

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 ausio we see on older style BX boards. This is Asus’ interpretation of how a KTA should look and perform. Will the situation be mirrored in Serious Sam 2?. Strong performances all-round here.

Adio feel that Asus have done a pretty good job with the A7VE. BIOS duty is handled by Award. Our strict timings and use of the performance-enhancing 1T command certainly pay dividends here.

I have counted a big “0”. What was the best tech product of ? One interesting thing to note is that Asus seem to over-supply actual voltage.


Pifast calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible. Here’s a quick look at our overclocking result. A similar story to the Pifast results, one that should come as no surprise by now.

However, the MSI, running with asynchronous memory, puts a little distance between itself and the Asus. Starting at the top and working our way down, we firstly see the rotated ZIFF socket.

If you’re looking for a solid, feature-laden motherboard, you can do considerably worse than the A7VE. Features and Installation Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board auddio some rather nice goodies.

As has been mentioned aydio, the board can be set to jumper-free mode by changing the position of one jumper. We mentioned that the Asus seems to over-supply voltage at any given setting. The board satisfies it’s probable OEM target market pretty well.
