We mentioned that the Asus seems to over-supply voltage at any given setting. However, the MSI, running with asynchronous memory, puts a little distance between itself and the Asus. By reading this site you agree to our cookie policy. We’ve not seen this before, presumably it ensures compatibility with the different processors. The Asus is close but not close enough.

Asus should have paid better attention zsus detail and came out with a better-engineered board than one with a backward PCI slot in the name of ACR.

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

The performance delta was consistent from start to finish. We don’t like to see this happen, but in the cut-throat world of motherboard manufacturing, any increase in performance, however gained, is x7v266 than welcome. A similar story to the Pifast results, one that should come as no surprise by now.

Let’s have a look at the specification in a little more detail. Let’s have a look at the results. The same story unfolds here. We could successfully run our XP 13x on the board without any problems, an upgraded BIOS may be needed for future processors. All trademarks, logos, and copyrights are property of their respective owners. We’re using Xmpeg 2. We mentioned that the Asus seems to over-supply voltage at any given setting.


Benchmarks Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way. We’ll try the test at Fastest to garner an idea of total throughput and then at Quality to represent something that mirrors actual a7v66 resolutions.

ASUS A7V266-E, Socket A, AMD Motherboard

Here’s a quick look at our overclocking result. Starting at the top and working our way down, we firstly see the rotated ZIFF socket.

BIOS duty is handled by Award.

Through preliminary tests we were able to ascertain that SETI is extremely sensitive to memory bandwidth. We see the mark barrier breached once more courtesy of an overclocked XP Another aspect to bear in mind is the relative running speeds of both systems when set at CPU defaults.

You receive an excellently written main instruction manual, a quick setup qsus for those who simply want to fire the motherboard up with the minimum of reading, a USB 1.

Motherboard: Asus A7VE :: Features ::

Top marks to Asus for once again producing an impeccably behaving motherboard. Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies.

The software package, although not as impressive as some we’ve seen, is more than adequate. How to Guides Interviews Tech-planations. Another observation we made was that 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.


Simply unplug the memory and away you go. Our visual preferences were xx32 Normal settings. Using slightly stricter settings resulted in failed boot-ups. The memory throughput is a far more interesting comparison.

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

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. The fact that certain jumpers still have to be manipulated is a negative point. It’s the same as the KTA in all other respects. Here’s a quick rundown of our test system and benchmarks used.

Will the situation be mirrored in Serious Sam 2?.

We had to manually set the DDR voltage to 2.
