We see the standard PCI slots 5, 32bit, 33Mhz flanked by a rather oddly placed floppy port. Vcore can be raised from 1. One thing to take away from this test is the impressive performance all-round. It’s the same as the KTA in all other respects. The scaling of the Asus at Mhz informs us of that.

And there you have it.

By reducing the multiplier to 8x, we were able to hit a stable FSB of Mhz. The Asus is close but not close enough. Asus have always impressed me with their presentation and soubd A7VE is no different.

The RAID ports are located above the main IDE ports, we’d wish Asus would differentiate the ports like most other manufacturers do, a completely different colour would have sufficed. The board satisfies it’s probable OEM target market pretty well. Here’s a quick look at our overclocking result.

Although latency is cut in half, you do sacrifice some security as RAID 0, by it’s very nature, has no redundancy.

Part soudn Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards. If you’re looking for a solid, feature-laden motherboard, you can do considerably worse than the A7VE. 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.


We would also like to see a completely jumper-free mode in BIOS. One interesting thing to note is that Asus seem to over-supply actual voltage. Here’s a quick look at the CPU adjustments available.

The BIOS itself is fairly intuitive and reasonably easy to navigate. Another observation we made was that the board takes soumd while to power up once the power switch is depressed, longer than any other board we’ve had in the labs.

Let’s have a look at the DRAM timings available. The fact that certain jumpers still have to be manipulated is a negative point.

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. We see three DDR banks that are thoughtfully placed.

We re-ran the test a number of times and found the results to be consistent. We’re running sounv Valley of the Jaguar Timedemo included in the publicly available demo. 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. By reading this site you agree to our cookie policy.


We calculate the average FPS after 20, frames have been encoded. The bulk of Asus’ revenue is accrued from the OEM channel. Starting at the top and working our way down, we firstly see the rotated ZIFF socket.

The words that spring to this reviewer’s mind are stability, quality and reliability. So far we’ve seen the Asus put up a commendable performance in our benchmarks, let’s now focus on gaming and see if it continues to do so. Will the trend that we’ve observed so far continue here? This boded well for our overclocking efforts. We’re using Xmpeg 2.

Benchmarks Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way. That’s not to say that Asus have not been busy in the retail channel, just one soun at their extensive product catalogue informs you of that. We feel that Asus have done a pretty good job with the A7VE.
