One thing to take away from this test is the impressive performance all-round. We liked the use of the C-Media sound chip, we also appreciated the quality of the manual and general appearance of the package. I have yet to even see or hear of a market ready ACR slot product available so this is wasted real estate and should have been the home of a sixth PCI slot. I’m a complete noob when it comes to electronics but all my solder joints look clean. We tried to find the limit of the motherboard by using a factory-unlocked 1. We’ve been able to empirically prove that Pifast thrives not only on pure CPU speed but also on memory throughput. We’re using Xmpeg 2.

Sound probs with A7VE 3 posts.

Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock a7b266-e matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. This is something that should be addressed and maybe come to light in the possible K7VF model. This boded well for our overclocking efforts. It’s the same as the KTA in all other respects.

This is a good sound solution and is soundd same chipset that is being used currently in the Hercules line of sound products. Once again, the impression of quality is evident here. We weren’t surprised to see the board soldiering on even after extended abuse. On another note, my iPanel distorts CD playback when I press any buttons on it, but I believed that’s a separate, unrelated problem.

Although the memory benchmarks hinted at a difference, we are still surprised to see it almost 3 seconds behind the MSI albeit running asynchronously. Click to find out more. Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively and an average score was taken.

Another aspect to bear in mind is the relative running speeds of both systems when set at CPU defaults. This feature is quite handy if you push the board too far. Starting at the top and working our way down, we firstly see the rotated ZIFF socket.

That heritage seems to have carried through to the A7VE. The Asus at Mhz takes an expected lead in this test. We would also like to see a completely jumper-free mode in BIOS.

We could successfully run our XP 13x on the board without any problems, an upgraded BIOS may be souund for future processors.

Here’s a quick rundown of our test system and benchmarks used. We know that many of our readers are interested in SETI. Dec 25, Posts: Thu Jan 03, We see the standard PCI slots 5, 32bit, 33Mhz flanked by a rather oddly placed floppy port.


Sohnd words that spring to this reviewer’s mind are stability, quality and reliability. FSB adjustment can be made in 1Mhz increments from – Mhz respectively. The same story unfolds here. Although preferable for overclockers, it certainly puts an emphasis on good cooling. When Asus is mentioned with respect to motherboards, what do you think?. Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way. As part of our stability testing, we ran SETI.

The bulk of Asus’ revenue is accrued from the OEM channel. It’s the upper layout in this diagram Anyone with a grasp of electronics care to comment on what I could have done wrong?

Let’s pay a visit to page 1 of our benchmarker’s Bible and try the old favourite that is Quake 3. BIOS duty is handled by Award. Impressive results from a stock-clocked Geforce 3 Ti
