Let’s see how they shaped up. We’ll try the test at Fastest to garner an idea of total throughput and then at Quality to represent something that mirrors actual playing resolutions. The Asus seems to fall short of this little bit extra, it does a lot of things well but fails to set our world on fire. Here’s a quick look at our overclocking result. The modes can be toggled by changing the position of the JEN jumper located at the bottom right of the board. The Asus at Mhz takes an expected lead in this test. We’re somewhat under-whelmed by the performance of the Asus with the stock XP.

The Souhd, whilst not the best, is certainly in the top half of those that we tested. The board packaging is subtle and not completely over-the-top like some.

The layout of the board is generally good with the exception of an oddly placed floppy drive port. Can you say consistent?

Figure 2 I still scratch my head and wonder why in the heck these guys put a more than useless ACR slot on this motherboard. The words that spring to this reviewer’s mind are stability, quality and reliability. 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.


Will the trend that we’ve observed so far continue here? Some users abhor rotated sockets and some like them, I fall into the latter camp as it allows me comfortably attach and remove my heatsink from the motherboard without having to remove it from the case.

The fact that certain jumpers still have to be manipulated is a negative point. The software package, although not as impressive as some we’ve seen, is more than adequate. Infidel Ars Tribunus Militum Tribus: Either way, the times posted are extremely impressive in their own right.

It behaves like an interrupt problem and manifests itself most when playing Giants: The Asus seems to fall short av7266-e this little bit extra, it does a lot of a7v26-e well but fails to set our world on fire.

It seems Asus’ lack of bandwidth is negatively impacting on results. Asus also show the relative running speed of the PCI bus. Hmm, I may have a lead. Everything is stowed away neatly. Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way.

We’re using Xmpeg 2. We had to manually set the DDR voltage to 2.

Asus have worked hard to gain this enviable reputation, work that has seen them leap to become to 1 manufacturer of PC motherboards world-wide. One seemingly annoying feature is the inability to manually turn off the RAID ports when booting. We see our recurring theme present here. The board satisfies it’s probable OEM target market pretty well.


On another note, my iPanel distorts CD playback when I press any buttons on it, but I believed that’s a separate, unrelated problem.

We see the mark barrier breached once more courtesy of an overclocked Aa7v266-e Thu Jan 03, 2: The very top bank of switches controls the CPU multiplier when set to jumper mode.

Our strict timings and use of the performance-enhancing 1T command certainly pay dividends here. This is something that should be addressed and maybe come to light in the possible K7VF model. We don’t like to see this happen, but in the cut-throat world of motherboard manufacturing, any increase in performance, however gained, is more than welcome. Sounx one takes a while to complete. Below is the ouput from PCIlist, it seems to indicate that the sound controller is unrecognised but I have updated the drivers and it is identified correctly by Device Manager and DXDiag.

The Siund is close but not close enough.
