You can then return to other menus and make further changes. The board also has a fail-safe booting mechanism. We’ve been able to empirically prove that Pifast thrives not only on pure CPU speed but also on memory throughput. Another observation we made was that the board takes a while to power up once the power switch is depressed, longer than any other board we’ve had in the labs. Replace the system cover. This feature tells the clock generator what frequency to send to the system bus and PCI bus. We found it difficult to tell the difference between this and our Sonic Fury, praise indeed for the on-board solution.

Incorrect settings may cause the system to fail to recognize the installed hard disk. 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.

Features and Installation Just a brief a7v266e reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies.

It is to do with “quality concern” as it has been pointed out to myself. Page 43 ON mode for more than 4 seconds turns the system off.

ASUS A7V266-E – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT266A Series

Out attention is immediately drawn to the number of jumpers and dip-switches on the board, something we are seeing less of these days. This field configures the number of sectors per track. We found it difficult to tell the difference between this and our Sonic Fury, praise indeed for aydio on-board solution. Asus also show the relative running speed of the PCI bus. Page 88 Hard disks used for both RAID 0 and 1 arrays should always have the same storage capacity because the RAID protocol automatically formats both disks to use only up to the maximum write space available on the smaller of two different hard disks.


Through preliminary tests we were able to ascertain that SETI is extremely sensitive to memory bandwidth.

Find all posts by omikron. Once again, the impression of quality is evident here. One interesting thing to note is that Asus seem to over-supply actual voltage. We ran the board continuously for well over 16 hours with Prime95 and SETI both taxing the system wudio. It’s well presented, has a multitude of features and is a champion in the stability stakes.

Asus have always impressed me aurio their presentation and the A7VE is no different. Find all posts by JPS. The fact that certain jumpers still have to be manipulated is zudio negative point. We re-ran the test a number of times and found the results to be consistent. 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.

PC or decode encrypted files. Advanced Menu This feature tells the clock generator what frequency to send to the system bus and PCI bus.


This synthetic benchmark stresses the CPU, memory sub-system and graphics card to the limit. Send a private message to JPS. The same story unfolds here. A chassis intrusion event is kept in memory on battery power for more protection. BIOS file you saved to the boot disk. To run a program, click Execute Program.


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 bus frequency external frequency multiplied by the bus multiple equals the CPU speed. Let’s have a look at the DRAM timings available.

Type a filename and the path, for example, A: Sudio times are GMT One seemingly annoying feature is the inability to manually turn off the RAID ports when booting. 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. If you made changes to fields other than system date, system time, and password, the BIOS asks for a confirmation audii exiting.
