ASUS A7V266-E CHIPSET DRIVER DOWNLOAD
If you’re looking for a solid, feature-laden motherboard, you can do considerably worse than the A7VE. Here’s a quick rundown of our test system and benchmarks used. However, even when set to jumper-free, you still have to manually change the DDR voltage by jumpers. 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. When Asus is mentioned with respect to motherboards, what do you think?.

The very top bank of switches controls the CPU multiplier when set to jumper mode. This boded well for our overclocking efforts.
One thing to take away from this test is the impressive performance all-round. 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.
So far we’ve seen the Asus put up a commendable performance in our benchmarks, let’s chipsrt focus on chipsrt and see if it continues to do so. The Asus, whilst not the best, is chipeet in the top half of those that we tested. We’re running the Valley of the Jaguar Timedemo included in the publicly available demo. We’ll next turn our attention to Pifast. If, for any reason, you cannot load Windows and have to switch the machine off, it will then next restart by automatically clearing CMOS by itself, thereby ensuring that BIOS defaults are loaded.
The words that spring to this reviewer’s mind are stability, quality and reliability. Although latency is cut in half, you do sacrifice some security as RAID 0, by it’s very nature, has no redundancy. Let’s have a look at the specification in a little more detail. It’s the same as the KTA in all other respects.

We appreciate that little touch. It appears as if the better memory optimisations, coupled with running memory asynchronously, really help the MSI here. 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.
On-board sound is having something of a renaissance of late. Features and Installation Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies. 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.

We had to manually set the DDR voltage to 2. However, chipest when set to jumper-free, you still have to manually change the DDR voltage by jumpers. And there you have it.
Strong performances all-round here. Simply unplug the memory and away you go.
Perhaps we’re being a bit over-critical, but we’ve seen some truly excellent motherboards come through the door recently. The bulk of Asus’ revenue is accrued from the OEM channel.

cuipset Let’s have a look at the DRAM timings available. One interesting thing to note is that Asus seem to over-supply actual voltage.
We would also like to see a completely jumper-free mode in BIOS. Using slightly stricter settings resulted in failed boot-ups. We weren’t surprised to see the board soldiering on even after extended abuse. That heritage seems to have carried through to the A7VE.
