Starting at the top and working our way down, we firstly see the rotated ZIFF socket. If you’re looking for a solid, feature-laden motherboard, you can do considerably worse than the A7VE. This synthetic benchmark stresses the CPU, memory sub-system and graphics card to the limit. The very top bank of switches controls the CPU multiplier when set to jumper mode. 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. The software package, although not as impressive as some we’ve seen, is more than adequate. The Promise controller offers the user two forms of RAID array, you can configure two exact drives to be one independent drive in the RAID 0 or striping mode or have two exact drives containing the same information for backup purposes in the RAID one or mirroring mode.

A7VE | ASUS Global

The Asus is close but not close enough. We would also like to see a completely jumper-free mode in BIOS.

Perhaps we’re being a bit over-critical, but we’ve seen some truly excellent motherboards come through the door recently. By reducing the multiplier to 8x, we were able to hit a stable FSB of Mhz. Will the trend that we’ve observed so far continue here? There are a7v626-e onboard video features but audio is included in the form of the C-Media CMI Hardware Audio Controller chipset that works in conjunction with the AC97 audio Codec and offers six channel digital sound when used with the skund add on card, which was not included with x7v266-e board.


All trademarks, logos, and copyrights are property of their respective owners. The scaling of the Asus at Mhz informs us of that. Click to find out more. One seemingly annoying feature is the inability to manually turn off the RAID ports when booting. And there you have it. Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively and an average score was taken.

Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. 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. I still scratch my head and wonder why in the heck these guys put a more than useless ACR slot on this motherboard. That heritage seems to have carried through to the A7VE. I have yet to even see or hear of a market ready ACR slot product available so this is wasted real estate and should have been the a7f266-e of a sixth PCI slot.

Both systems were configured for maximum performance. Out attention is immediately drawn to the number q7v266-e jumpers and dip-switches on the board, something we are seeing less of these days.

Impressive results all-round Let’s pay a7v626-e visit to page 1 of our benchmarker’s Bible and try the old favourite that is Quake 3. The layout of the board is generally good with the exception of an oddly placed floppy drive port.


Here’s a quick a7v26-e at our overclocking result. I have a serious problem with my on board sound.

Sound probs with A7V266-E

We found it difficult to tell the difference between this and our Sonic Fury, praise indeed for the on-board solution. We liked the use of the C-Media sound chip, we also appreciated the quality of the manual and general appearance of the package.

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. Another fan header sits just to the right of the floppy w7v266-e. It’s the upper layout in this diagram Anyone with a grasp of electronics care to comment on what I could have done wrong?

Dec 25, Posts: The Asus is almost unique in that a7266-e offers both jumper and jumper-free modes of operation. Features and Installation Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies.

It behaves like an interrupt problem and manifests itself most when playing Giants: This one takes a while to complete. Our strict timings and use of the performance-enhancing 1T command certainly pay dividends here.
