Benchmarks Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way. BIOS duty is handled by Award. Here’s a quick look at our overclocking result. Let’s have a look at the results. We had to manually set the DDR voltage to 2. The layout of the board is generally good with the exception of an oddly placed floppy drive port.

Three Kings is the DVD of choice, it’s mixture of action and dialogue make it an excellent benchmarking test. We tried to find the limit of the motherboard by using a factory-unlocked 1. We mentioned that the Asus seems to over-supply voltage at any given setting.
Here’s a quick look at the CPU adjustments available. Either way, the times posted are extremely impressive in their own right.
Review: Asus A7VE RAID Motherboard – Mainboard –
The Asus, whilst not the best, is certainly in the top half of those that we tested. By reducing the multiplier to 8x, we were able to hit a stable FSB of Mhz. Pifast calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible. This one takes a while to complete. Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively and an average score was taken. Starting at the top and working our way down, we firstly see the rotated ZIFF socket.
We’ve found this combination to be the most stable in our stress tests. However, even when set to jumper-free, you still have to manually change the DDR voltage by jumpers. We had to manually set the DDR voltage to 2. Let’s pay a 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. The same story unfolds here.
Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way. Shifting large amounts of data from 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.
The socket has plenty of room around it ensuring that even large coolers are relatively easy to fit.
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. That heritage seems to have carried through to the A7VE. One seemingly annoying feature is the inability to manually turn off the RAID ports when booting.
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.
We see our recurring theme present here. What was the best tech product of ? You receive an excellently written main instruction manual, a quick setup guide for those who simply want to fire the a7266-e up with the minimum of reading, a USB 1. As you can see the performance-enhancing 1T command is present too.
The RAID ports are located above the main IDE ports, we’d wish Asus would differentiate the ports like most zsus manufacturers do, a completely different colour would have sufficed. The bulk of Asus’ revenue is accrued from the OEM channel. Benchmarks Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way.
ASUS Ships A7V266-E Motherboard
The scaling of the Asus at Mhz informs us of that. Asus have always impressed me with their presentation and the A7VE is no different.
We appreciate that little touch. It seems Asus’ lack of bandwidth is negatively impacting on results.
Top marks to Asus for once again producing an impeccably behaving motherboard.
