We weren’t surprised to see the board soldiering on even after extended abuse. The Asus at Mhz takes an expected lead in this test. Another fan header sits just to the right of the floppy port. Asus also show the relative running speed of the PCI bus. Here’s a quick look at the CPU adjustments available.

ASUS A7VE – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KTA Overview – CNET
One interesting thing to note is that Asus seem to over-supply actual voltage. And there you have chipeet. As has been mentioned above, the board can be set to jumper-free mode by changing the position of one jumper. Top marks to Asus for once again producing an impeccably behaving motherboard.
Some users abhor rotated sockets and some like them, I fall into the chi;set camp as it allows me comfortably attach and remove my heatsink from the motherboard without having to remove it from the case. We’ll next turn our attention to Pifast. A similar story to the Pifast results, one that should come as no surprise by now. The performance delta was consistent from start to finish.
Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout, the board looks good and everything bar the floppy port is located with thought. 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. Let’s have a look at the specification in a little more detail. We’ll try the test at Fastest to garner an idea of total throughput and then at Quality to represent something that mirrors actual playing resolutions.
A7VE | ASUS Global
The Asus at Mhz takes an expected lead in this test. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. It’s well presented, has a multitude of features and is a champion in the stability stakes. Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way.
All benchmarks were conducted at xx32 85Hz with vertical sync disabled. Click to find out more. We tried to find the limit of the motherboard by using a factory-unlocked 1.
Once again, the impression of quality is evident here. We’d much rather see the floppy port grouped with the other IDE ports. We appreciate that little touch. We had to manually set the DDR voltage to 2. asuss
ASUS A7V266-E, Socket A, AMD Motherboard
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. If you’re looking for a solid, feature-laden motherboard, you can do considerably worse than the A7VE.
On-board sound is having something of a renaissance of late. One seemingly annoying feature is the inability to manually turn off the RAID ports when booting.
We calculate the average FPS after 20, frames have been encoded.
We weren’t surprised to see the board soldiering on even after extended abuse. We know that many of our readers are interested in SETI.
We’ve been able to empirically prove that Pifast thrives not only on pure CPU speed but also on memory throughput. This boded well for our overclocking efforts.
Another observation we made was that the board takes a while to power up once the power switch is depressed, longer than any other saus we’ve had in the labs. We could successfully run our XP 13x on the board without any problems, an upgraded BIOS may be needed for future processors.
Using slightly stricter settings resulted in failed boot-ups. Asus also show the relative running speed of the PCI bus.
