Our visual preferences were xx32 Normal settings. I still scratch my head and wonder why in the heck these guys put a more than useless ACR slot on this motherboard.

Thu Jan 03, 2: However, the MSI, running with asynchronous memory, puts a little distance between itself and the Asus.

When set to 1. Hmm, I may have a lead. Downloads Mobo ID Tools.

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. This is something that should be addressed and maybe come to light in the possible K7VF model. The bulk of Asus’ revenue is accrued from the OEM channel.

Strong performances all-round here. We liked the use of the C-Media sound chip, we also appreciated the quality of the manual and general appearance of the package. We appreciate that little touch.

On-board sound is having something of a renaissance of late. Let’s move onto another area of media encoding that has historically been heavily reliant on memory throughput, namely DVD encoding.


The Asus at Mhz takes an expected lead in this test. This boded well for our overclocking efforts.

As you can see the performance-enhancing 1T command is present too. 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.

All benchmarks were conducted at xx32 85Hz with vertical sync disabled. There are no onboard video features but audio is included in the form of the C-Media CMI Hardware Audio Controller chipset that works in conjunction with the AC97 audio Codec and offers six channel digital sound when used with the optional add on card, which was not included with this board.

The same story unfolds here. Sund visual preferences were xx32 Normal settings. We’ve found this combination to be the most stable in our stress tests. Simply unplug the memory and away you go. Let’s have a look at the DRAM timings available. Infidel Ars Tribunus Militum Tribus: 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.


We’ll start the ball a7g266-e with one of our favourites, namely 3DMark SE. We see our recurring theme present here.

Let’s see how they shaped up. The board packaging is subtle and not completely over-the-top like some. However, we at Hexus expect a motherboard to perform well at stock speeds, we look at motherboard manufacturers to provide soknd something extra, whether it be with new, innovative features or with outstanding performance.

Here’s a quick look at our overclocking result. Three Kings is the DVD of choice, it’s mixture of action and dialogue make it an excellent benchmarking test.
