Port Devices


Here’s a quick look at our overclocking result. However, even when set to jumper-free, you still have to manually change the DDR voltage by jumpers. One seemingly annoying feature is the inability to manually turn off the RAID ports when booting. This synthetic benchmark stresses the CPU, memory sub-system and graphics card to the limit. It appears so, the Asus can’t quite catch the MSI at default speeds but naturally edges ahead at overclocked speeds.

One seemingly annoying feature is the inability to manually turn off the RAID ports when booting. We’ll next turn our attention to Pifast.

Subscribe to our Newsletter. We found it difficult to tell the difference between this and our Sonic Fury, praise indeed for the on-board solution.

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.

Using our XP 13xcooled with a modified dual-fan Taisoland 1. The usual auxio and system setup options are present too. Everything is stowed away neatly. Part of Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards. The board satisfies it’s probable OEM target market pretty well. It seems Asus’ lack of bandwidth is negatively impacting on results.


Again, we see a7vv266 Asus trailing the MSI at stock speeds but managing to overtake it when ‘clocked to the limit. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout, the board looks good and everything bar the floppy port is located with thought.

We appreciate that little touch. Asus have always impressed me with their presentation and the A7VE is no different.

We’d much rather see the floppy port grouped with the other IDE ports. The socket has plenty of room around it ensuring uadio even large coolers are relatively easy to fit.

The modes can be toggled by changing the position of the JEN jumper located at the bottom right of the board. This sound chip capable of 5. Here’s a quick rundown of our test system and benchmarks used.

We liked the use of the C-Media sound chip, we also a7v26 the quality of the manual and general appearance of the package. Through preliminary tests we were able to ascertain that SETI is extremely sensitive to memory bandwidth. 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 by a rather oddly placed floppy port. Once again, the impression of quality is a7vv266 here.

With CPU’s increasing in speed and more power than is needed, these devices don’t impact the system as bad a7g266 they have done in the past. Previous Page Next Page. 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 know that many of our readers are interested in SETI.


Shifting large amounts of data aidio 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 A7V266 KT266 Motherboard

Features and Installation Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus audo loaded the board with some rather nice goodies. We ran the board continuously for well over 16 hours with Prime95 and SETI both taxing the system simultaneously. Let’s pay a visit to page 1 of our benchmarker’s Bible and try the old favourite that is Quake 3.

We’ve found this combination to be the most stable in our stress tests. The layout of the board is generally good with the exception of an oddly placed floppy drive port. This is Asus’ interpretation of how a KTA should look and perform.
