Our strict timings and use of the performance-enhancing 1T command certainly pay dividends here. Asus have always impressed me with their presentation and the A7VE is no different. That’s not to say that Asus have not been busy in the retail channel, just one look at their extensive product catalogue informs you of that. Benchmarks Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way. However, the MSI, running with asynchronous memory, puts a little distance between itself and the Asus.

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 modes can be toggled by changing the position of the JEN jumper located at the bottom right of the board.
Both systems were configured for maximum performance. The board also has a fail-safe booting mechanism. Impressive results all-round Let’s pay a visit to page 1 of our benchmarker’s Bible and try the old favourite that is Quake 3. Benchmarks Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way. The layout of the board is generally good with the exception of an oddly placed floppy drive port.
We’re looking at speeds greater than real-time here. That’s not to say that Asus have not been busy in the retail channel, just one look at their extensive product catalogue informs you of that. The same story unfolds here. We feel that Asus have done a pretty good job with the A7VE.
Using our XP 13xcooled with a modified z7v266 Taisoland 1.
ASUS A7V266-E – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT266A Series
Asus have always impressed me with their presentation and the A7VE is no a7v2666. On-board sound is having something of a renaissance of late. This synthetic benchmark stresses the CPU, memory sub-system and graphics card to the limit. We found it difficult to tell the difference between this and our Sonic Fury, praise indeed for the on-board solution.
The software package, although not as impressive as some we’ve seen, is more than adequate. So far we’ve seen the Asus put up a commendable performance in our benchmarks, let’s now focus on gaming and aduio if it continues to do so.
It’s well presented, has a multitude of features and is a champion in the stability stakes. You receive an excellently written main instruction manual, a quick setup guide for those who simply want to fire the motherboard up with the minimum of reading, a USB 1.
This one takes a while to complete. Once zsus, the impression of quality is evident here.

The very top bank of switches controls the CPU multiplier when set to jumper mode. The memory throughput is a far more interesting comparison.
A similar story to the Pifast results, one that should come as no surprise by now. Using slightly stricter settings resulted aucio failed boot-ups. And there you have it. This sound chip capable of 5.
Impressive results from a stock-clocked Geforce 3 Ti Let’s have a look at the specification in a little more detail. The words that spring to this wudio mind are stability, quality and reliability.
That heritage seems to have carried through to the A7VE. Click to find out more. The Asus is close but not close enough.
