Can you say consistent? Click to find out more. Everything is stowed away neatly. The Asus is almost unique in that it offers both jumper and jumper-free modes of operation. This one takes a while to complete. Our visual preferences were xx32 Normal settings.

ASUS A7VE – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KTA Overview – CNET

Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way. 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.

We liked the soun of the C-Media sound chip, we also appreciated the quality of the manual and general appearance of the package. Vcore can be raised from 1.

We mentioned that the Asus seems to over-supply voltage at any given setting. When set to 1. The BIOS itself is fairly intuitive and reasonably easy to navigate.

Out attention is immediately drawn to the number of jumpers and dip-switches on the board, something we are seeing less of these days.

However, even when set to jumper-free, you still have to manually change the DDR voltage by jumpers. Our strict timings and use of z7v266 performance-enhancing 1T command certainly pay dividends here.


We calculate the average FPS after 20, frames have been encoded.

It appears as if the better memory optimisations, coupled with running memory asynchronously, really help the MSI here. Let’s move onto another area of media encoding that has historically been heavily reliant on memory throughput, namely DVD encoding. BIOS duty is handled by Award.

The RAID ports are located above the main IDE ports, we’d wish Asus would differentiate the ports like most other manufacturers do, sounr completely different colour would have sufficed. Let’s have a look at the results. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout, the board looks good and everything bar the floppy port is located with thought. Let’s have a look at the DRAM timings available. We see our recurring theme present here. The Asus at Mhz takes an expected lead in this test.

We’ll next turn our attention to Pifast. The board also has a fail-safe booting mechanism. We don’t like to see this happen, but in the cut-throat assu of motherboard manufacturing, any increase in performance, x7v266 gained, is more than welcome. Top marks to Asus for once again producing an impeccably behaving motherboard. However, we at Hexus expect a motherboard to perform well at stock speeds, we look at motherboard manufacturers to provide that something extra, whether it be with new, innovative features or with outstanding performance.


Let’s see how they shaped up. When Asus is mentioned with respect to motherboards, what do you think?. The Asus, whilst not the best, is xound in the top half of those that we tested. As part of our stability testing, we ran SETI.

On-board sound is having something of a renaissance of late. RAID 1 is more commonly used to back up data as one drive asua mirrors what’s is on the other. We see the mark barrier breached once more courtesy of an overclocked XP It appears so, the Asus can’t quite catch the MSI at default speeds but naturally edges ahead at overclocked speeds. Features and Installation Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies.

The board packaging is subtle and not completely asis like some.
