As you can see the performance-enhancing 1T command is present too. Through preliminary tests we were able to ascertain that SETI is extremely sensitive to memory bandwidth. MP3 encoding is something that I regularly do, anything that saves time in that process is most welcome. This feature is quite handy if you push the board too far. 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.

The words that spring to this reviewer’s mind are stability, quality and reliability. By reducing the multiplier to 8x, we were able to hit a stable FSB of Mhz.

Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way. Both systems were configured for maximum performance. Using our XP 13xcooled with a modified dual-fan Taisoland 1. As has been mentioned above, the board can be set to jumper-free mode by changing the position of one jumper.

I have yet to even see or hear of a market ready Soudn slot product available so this is wasted real estate and should have been the home of a sixth PCI slot.

Pifast calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible.

I still scratch my head and wonder why in the heck these guys put a more than useless ACR z7v266-e on this motherboard. Impressive results from a stock-clocked Geforce 3 Ti That heritage seems to have carried through to the A7VE.

Ssound strict timings and use of the performance-enhancing 1T command certainly pay dividends here. The scaling of the Asus at Mhz informs us of that. Another observation we made was that the board takes a while to power up once the power switch is depressed, longer than any other board we’ve had in the labs.

We’ve found this combination to be the most stable in our stress tests. We re-ran the test a number of times and found the results to be consistent.

Can you say consistent? Part of Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards. We’ll next turn our attention to Pifast. The Asus is almost unique in that it offers both jumper and jumper-free modes of operation.

We appreciate that little touch. Will the situation be mirrored in Serious Sam 2?. Out attention is immediately drawn to the number of jumpers and dip-switches on the board, something we are seeing less of these days. Here’s a quick look at the CPU adjustments available.

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

Let’s move onto another area of media encoding that has historically been heavily reliant on memory throughput, namely DVD encoding. Let’s have a look at the DRAM timings available. We’re looking at speeds greater than real-time here. Here’s a quick rundown of our test system and benchmarks used.


This is well rounded out board that doesn’t have everything but pulls ahead where it counts and comes out looking good in the long run. 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.

Click to find out more. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout, the board looks good and everything bar the floppy port is located with thought. Asus should have paid better attention asua detail and came out with a better-engineered board than one with a backward PCI slot in the name of ACR.

We tried to find the limit of the motherboard by using a factory-unlocked 1.
