Unlike on some other boards, you can remove the memory without having to remove the AGP card, there is just enough space for you to do so. What was the best tech product of ? The very top bank of switches controls the CPU multiplier when set to jumper mode. We know that many of our readers are interested in SETI. Part of Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards.

Asus also show the relative running speed of the PCI bus. It seems Asus’ lack of bandwidth is negatively impacting on results. It appears as if the better memory optimisations, coupled with running memory asynchronously, really help the MSI here. Shifting large amounts of data soind system memory to processor is the name of the game here, Let’s see how they compare when racing to calculate Pi to 10 million decimal places.
Asus have worked hard to gain this enviable reputation, work that has seen them leap to become to 1 manufacturer of PC motherboards world-wide. We ran the board continuously for well over 16 hours with Prime95 and SETI both taxing the system simultaneously.
The BIOS itself is fairly intuitive and reasonably easy to navigate. We’re looking xound speeds greater than real-time here. Impressive results from a stock-clocked Geforce 3 Ti A similar story to the Pifast results, one that should come as no surprise by now. As part a7266 our stability testing, we ran SETI. We tried to find the limit of the motherboard by using a factory-unlocked 1.

The words that spring to this reviewer’s mind are stability, quality and reliability. The layout 7av266 the board is generally good with the exception of an oddly placed floppy drive port.
We weren’t surprised to see the board soldiering on even after extended abuse. Unlike on some other boards, you can remove the memory without having to remove the AGP card, there is just enough space for you to do so. Either way, the times posted are extremely impressive in their own right. We’d much rather see the floppy port grouped with the other IDE ports. As has been mentioned above, the board can be set to jumper-free mode by changing the position of one jumper.
This boded well for our overclocking asys.

As you can see the performance-enhancing 1T command is present too. The scaling of the Asus at Mhz informs us of that. Another fan header sits just to the right of the floppy port. The Asus, whilst not the best, is certainly in the top half of those that we tested. We see the mark barrier breached once more courtesy of an overclocked XP 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.
Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout, the board looks good and everything bar the floppy port is located with thought. We had to manually set the DDR voltage to 2.
Although preferable for overclockers, it certainly puts an emphasis on good cooling. If you’re looking for a solid, feature-laden motherboard, you can do considerably worse than the A7VE. MP3 encoding is something that I regularly do, anything that saves time in that process is most welcome. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. We see our recurring theme present here.
