ASUS was one of the first boards to offer Thoroughbred support, though the version of the BIOS that is currently available wouldn’t allow us to change the core voltage of the Thoroughbred processor. This fanless design makes a lot of sense and it’s quite common on Intel-based motherboards for some reason, we’d like to see the same continue in boards from other manufacturers as well.

Of aufio three memory slots that are on-board, we were wsus to find out that you can populate all three, without sacrificing the stability of the motherboard.

With the prevalence of home networks and broadband internet, we would assume ASUS would find ausio a more valuable feature than the on-board Firewire, if they had to make a choice between the two. ASUS has been a favorite of ours for quite some time; their commitment to engineering excellence has given them a leg up on the competition when it comes to competency in board manufacturing.

Log in Don’t have an account? The other problem we have with the ASUS board is that you cannot disable the Promise BIOS from loading, which increases boot time tremendously as the controller searches for any devices attached to it.

The other issue we had with the layout of the board was that the CPU fan connector is very far away from the CPU socket. ahdio

CMedia – 6 Channel. The A7V is a fairly standard motherboard from ASUS that manages to attain a good balance between an attractive board for OEMs as well as an enthusiast-class solution.

You can either use an extension on the CPU fan connector or reorient the fan so that the cable is closest to the fan connector on the motherboard. A7vv333 bundled a separate bracket with the board that has both 6-pin and 4-pin Firewire connectors; this bracket obviously takes up a slot cutout in the rear of your case, but the inclusion of both 4-pin and ahdio ports are useful since 4-pin to 6-pin cables are much more common than 6-pin to 6-pin cables.

We’re not sure whether the problem is related to Kingston or ASUS at this point; seeing as how the memory worked fine in every other motherboard we’re betting the blame is with ASUS for this one. We’ve brought up the issue with ASUS but have not received an answer yet.

The AGP Pro50 slot really only makes sense for workstation-users, as the only cards that require it are made by 3D Labs. Unfortunately here is also where we ran into the first problem with the A7V; the board will not work with Kingston’s DDR ValueRam at DDR speeds, though the same memory worked fine in all other motherboards. The board worked just fine with all of the other DDR memory we tested.

Oftentimes, manufacturers will use cheap North Bridge fans, which end up contributing to a noisy system, something ASUS has also managed to eliminate with this design.

Just as with the passive North Bridge cooling mentioned above, we’d like to see more motherboard manufacturers follow in ASUS’ footsteps with this design. Other than the issue with Kingston memory, the A7V exhibited no stability problems during our testing even with all three DIMM slots populated.

Although you can adjust the setting, the actual voltage being fed to the processor was never adjusted; we’re hoping this is a BIOS issue and will be fixed shortly. Our biggest issue with this RAID controller is that it does not offer the ability to select different stripe sizes other than 64KB and thus limits performance tremendously 64KB stripe sizes are far from ideal for most desktop applications.
