One thing to take away from this test is the impressive performance all-round. Although preferable for overclockers, it certainly puts an emphasis on good cooling. As part of our stability testing, we ran SETI. 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. Through preliminary tests we were able to ascertain that SETI is extremely sensitive to memory bandwidth. 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. We mentioned that the Asus seems to over-supply voltage at any given setting.

The software package, although not as impressive as some we’ve seen, is more than adequate. Part of Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards.

We had to manually set the DDR voltage to 2.

It’s the same as the KTA in all other respects. When set to 1. We see the mark barrier breached once more courtesy of an overclocked XP Asus, like most other manufacturers, simply replaced their Zound offering by substituting the more efficient KTA North bridge in place of the older KT North bridge chipset.


One interesting thing to note is that Asus seem to over-supply actual voltage.

The performance delta was consistent from start to finish. Our strict timings and use of the performance-enhancing 1T command certainly pay dividends here. It behaves like an interrupt problem and manifests itself most when playing Giants: Using our XP 13xcooled with a modified dual-fan Taisoland 1.

Sound probs with A7V266-E

Perhaps we’re being a bit over-critical, but we’ve seen some truly excellent motherboards come through the door recently. We’d much rather see the floppy port grouped with the soound IDE ports. We re-ran the test a number of times and found the results to be consistent. Sound probs with A7VE 3 posts. In a7g266-e infidelium, UK Registered: We don’t like to see this happen, but in the cut-throat world of motherboard manufacturing, any increase in performance, however gained, is more than welcome.

This one takes a while to complete.

Looks like it was the iPanel all along. We know that many of our readers are interested in SETI. One seemingly annoying feature is the inability to manually turn off the RAID ports when booting.

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

The Asus is close but not close enough. This is Asus’ interpretation of how a KTA should look and perform. Anyone else had any experience with this? Top marks to Asus for once again producing an impeccably behaving motherboard. 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. Features and Installation Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies.


Will the situation be mirrored in Serious Sam 2?. When Asus is mentioned with respect to motherboards, what do you think?. Impressive results from a stock-clocked Geforce 3 Ti We see the standard PCI slots 5, 32bit, 33Mhz flanked by a rather oddly placed floppy port.

The RAID ports are located above the main IDE ports, we’d wish Asus would differentiate the ports like most other manufacturers do, a completely different colour would have wound. The black borders are cropped to save unnecessary encoding time.

Can you say consistent?
