Conclusion: The "overclocker's special" version of the
A7V showed up sooner than I expected! Read all about the adjustable-multiplier version of
- AMD's baby Athlon delivers some serious bang for not many bucks - what do you need to
know to get one running?
Conclusion: I lead into this review saying that this board is THE one to get for overclockers. It may not be the cheapest, but from what we've seen so far, it is the fastest, most stable, and ONE of the easiest to overclock (Cheers to easy overclocking! Jeers to the dip switches!).
Conclusion: I think it should be clear by now how much I love this board! It actually convinced me to go for an AMD CPU for the very first time (as of this writing, a purple core Athlon 750 is heading my way).
Pros: Rock Solid, Integrated ATA/100 support, AGP 4x PRO, Fast Writes, It's Fast!, Awesome for overclockers! Multiplier overclocking is not dead!, BIOS Memory tweaks work well
Cons: Pretty expensive - This will cost more than twice as much as your Duron CPU, No Onboard RAID available (if you actually care), No software multiplier settings (dip switches are still better than jumpers though)
Conclusion: As AMD slowly shift their processor packages from Slot A over to Socket A, a new crop of compatible motherboards have started to emerge. The Socket A package follows 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...
Conclusion: Did you take a look at the Ballistics Report? If you did, you see that there's a lot we like about the ASUS A7V. After all, how could we dislike a motherboard that allowed us to overclock our Duron to 1GHz!?
Summary: Asus A7V havner mellom to stoler. Størrelsen og vekten burde tilsi en kraftig skrivebordserstatter, men ytelsen ligger på linje med de tynne og lette maskinene under tre kg. Maskinen er riktig nok godt utstyrt med mange tilkoblingsmuligheter, og mulighet for TV-tuner.
Conclusion: Das VRM brachte uns auf eine Idee, die wir ASUS hier gerne mitteilen möchten: Wenn man das Modul steckbar produzieren würde (es ist jetzt auf dem Board festgelötet), wären Updates der Spannungsregler eine Leichtigkeit.
