Another aspect to bear in mind is the relative running speeds of both systems when set at CPU defaults. The socket has plenty of room around it ensuring that even large coolers are relatively easy to fit. Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively and an average score was taken. Part of Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout, the board looks good and everything bar the floppy port is located with thought. We know that many of our readers are interested in SETI. Here’s a quick look at our overclocking result.

Some users abhor rotated sockets and some like them, I fall into the latter camp as it allows me comfortably attach and remove my heatsink from a7v626 motherboard without having to remove it from the case.

It seems Asus’ lack of bandwidth is negatively impacting on results.

Top marks to Asus for once again producing an impeccably behaving motherboard. Our visual preferences were xx32 Normal settings. However, even when set to jumper-free, you still have to manually change the DDR voltage sohnd jumpers. The scaling of the Asus at Mhz informs us of that. I’m sure OEM system builders will be more than happy at the inclusion of sounv little chip, as it almost precludes the need for a true hardware solution.


ASUS A7V266-E – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT266A Series

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. We’ve been able to empirically prove that Pifast thrives not only on pure CPU speed but also on memory throughput.

Our strict timings and use of the performance-enhancing 1T command certainly pay dividends here. We see the standard PCI slots 5, 32bit, 33Mhz flanked a7v66 a rather oddly placed floppy port.

The board packaging is subtle and not completely over-the-top like some. The fact that certain jumpers still have to be manipulated is a negative point.

Another observation we made was zound the board takes a while to power up once the power switch is depressed, longer than any other board we’ve had in the labs. This boded well for our overclocking efforts.

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

We feel that Asus have done a pretty good job with the A7VE. We re-ran the test a number of times and found the results to be consistent. Either way, the times posted are extremely impressive in their own right. Although the memory benchmarks hinted at a difference, we are still slund to see it almost 3 seconds behind the MSI albeit running asynchronously. We weren’t surprised to see the board soldiering on even after extended abuse. Let’s have a look at the specification in a little more detail.

Will the situation be mirrored in Dound Sam 2?. Simply unplug the memory and away you go. Through preliminary tests we were able to ascertain that SETI is extremely sensitive to memory bandwidth.

We’ll start the ball rolling with one of our favourites, namely 3DMark SE. The bulk of Asus’ revenue is accrued from the OEM channel.

The modes can be toggled by changing the position of the JEN a7v2666 located at the bottom right of the board. Impressive results all-round 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. 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.

We’re using Xmpeg 2. We’ve not seen this before, presumably it ensures compatibility with the different processors. It’s well presented, has a multitude of features and is a champion in the stability stakes. Here’s a quick look at the CPU adjustments sohnd. When Asus is mentioned aa7v266 respect to motherboards, what do you think?.
