With only the 3 audio jacks on the standard ATX sound connector, the rear speakers plug into the blue line in and the center and sub channel’s share the mic port. And there you have it. 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. I’m sure OEM system builders will be more than happy at the inclusion of this little chip, as it almost precludes the need for a true hardware solution. Although latency is cut in half, you do sacrifice some security as RAID 0, by it’s very nature, has no redundancy. Part of Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards.

Our visual preferences were xx32 Normal settings. Click to find out more. Our strict timings and use of the performance-enhancing 1T command certainly pay dividends here.

The location of the ports are in the upper right corner of the board; very good placement for the RAID controller. These extra bays are to provide qudio power for those hungry video cards, but how many AGP Pro video cards have we seen lately? 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. We mentioned that the Asus seems to over-supply voltage at any given setting. As you can see the performance-enhancing 1T command is present too.


Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies. This new riser design makes way for cost effective solutions such as Audio, Modem, Network Cards, 5.

Motherboard Watch: Asus A7V266

We liked the use of the C-Media sound chip, we also appreciated the quality of the manual and general appearance of the package. Will the trend that we’ve observed so far continue here? We see three Auido banks that are thoughtfully placed. Here’s a quick look at the CPU adjustments available. 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.

Well within reach of the 3. Through preliminary tests we were able to ascertain that SETI is extremely sensitive to memory bandwidth.

If, for any reason, you cannot load Windows aufio have to switch the machine off, it will then next restart by automatically clearing Auudio by itself, thereby ensuring that BIOS defaults are loaded. Strong performances all-round here. The Asus at Mhz takes an expected lead in this test. Using slightly stricter settings resulted in failed boot-ups.

However, we at Hexus expect a motherboard to perform well at stock speeds, we look at motherboard manufacturers to provide that something extra, whether it be with new, innovative features or with outstanding performance. This is Asus’ interpretation of how a KTA should look and perform. Benchmarks Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way.


Review: Asus A7VE RAID Motherboard – Mainboard –

Once again, the impression of quality is evident here. We’ve not seen this before, presumably it ensures compatibility with the different processors. Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon’s website.

Vcore can be raised from 1. Part of Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards.

The Asus seems to fall short of this little bit extra, it does aydio lot of things well but fails to set our world on fire. Asus have always impressed me with their presentation and the A7VE is no different. The words that spring to this reviewer’s mind are stability, quality and reliability. This sound chip capable of 5.
