Its set to FSB and 9x Multiplier. Asus has recognised the needs of the most extreme Overclockers by including drilled holes on the PCB where heavy duty cooling equipment can be physically bolted onto the board in safe locations.
The voltage range on the A7V is between 1.
Asus A7V-VE Quick Start Manual: External Connectors
Unfortunately this a7b sink is not approved by AMD, as it has been know to crush the cores of several chips, as the core material is very fragile, thus resulting in an unusable chip.
As the A7V is used in my day-to-day system, the stability is a very important factor to me.
The stability it gave during benchmarking and still does. AGP Pro is normally s7v on workstation class graphics adapters, but the slot also support AGPx4 found on the latest high-end gaming graphics adaptors.

A mod has been done where the voltage range has been shifted upwards to about 2. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. Any company can copy a reference design; a good manufacturer improves upon it.
After setting up Windows 98 Second Edition, and all necessary drivers and Detonator 6. After a bit of toying around with ways to lessen their involvement with the production of the K7M, ASUS eventually rose to the point where they came out and fully supported the motherboard. If need be, ASUS could theoretically easily replace the VRM module it’s not plugged into a socket, so you would have to de-solder the connections before removing the board with a quick RMA back to the factory, but then again, we’re not sure if this was what ASUS had in mind.
Being on a riser board means that a large heat sink or other cooling devices can be fitted onto the board without fear of lack of space.
The version that I tested is revision 1. Unlike other markets that we are report on, there seems to be asys less bashing of competing companies in the motherboard industry, and more competition based solely on the merits of a company’s products.
The advantages of an overclocked PC are apparent here as the speed of is only a whisker slower that an Athlon 1Ghz and on par with a 1Ghz Pentium 3 Processor. The Socket A package be the latest trend in processor designs, with the CPU core exposed on the top of the chip, thus allowing a heat sink plate to fit flush against the core. The connector, being positioned just along the edge of the first DIMM slot, doesn’t get in the way of much and it is a better location than we’ve seen others place it; however, ABIT’s “along the edge” positioning would be even more desirable.
Below is the Sandra Multimedia Benchmark Scores at mhz. Reference pictures on the box indicate that ashs were no heat sinks present originally; they must have been added after concerns were raised possibly after asuss testing proved the chipset to generate a lot of heat.
ASUS A7V Socket-A KT ATX
It holds all of the necessary voltage regulating capacitors that create a stable voltage for the chip. Click to find out more. SiSoft Sandra Standard Version The Asus asux one of the first Socket A motherboards to be released, and appears to have many advantages over its rivals.
The K7M turned out to be the most mature AMD board in a time when finding a solid Athlon motherboard was quite difficult. We have yet to see ASUS do something that v have a very good reason behind it, so we’re going to vee them the benefit of the doubt and assume that their engineers know what they’re doing. After a lot of tweaking, I managed to get the CPU running stable at Mhz, which is what its set at now as I type this review.
ASUS A7V Socket-A KT133 ATX
An instant winner in our eyes, the CUSL2 took the same chipset that every other motherboard manufacturer was equipped with, and managed to produce a motherboard that was more impressive asu any other design based on that chipset. ASUS has always been one of the most solid and well-respected motherboard manufacturers in the industry. Another example of the ASUS standard would axus their K7M, quite possibly the most highly anticipated motherboard for the Athlon processor.
The excellent overclocking potential. With a processor which is unlocked and the ability to change the multiplier, increasing the FSB becomes a much less desirable, as the processor can be overclocked and still be kept inside its rated FSB. The most interesting feature on the A7V is its various dipswitches that control Multiplier adjustment and front side bus adjustment.
