This is the longest boot time we have ever recorded for an IDE motherboard. We also were able to run the Duron at MHz, with a core voltage of 1.

Getting Athlons and Durons to run stably at 7av is about as good as you can expect. Also, the placement of DIMM sockets and the additional power board near the CPU socket means that you may have problems attaching large heat sink and fan units, such as the Golden Orb.

For more information on the Windows shutdown bug, go here. The K7M turned out to be the most mature AMD board a7g a time when finding a solid Athlon motherboard was quite difficult. The long boot time can be frustrating while setting up a system, where frequent reboots are necessary.
However, fast shutdown times on new systems can actually be a problem. We were able to run the MHz T-bird at 9.
Another example of the ASUS standard would be their K7M, quite possibly the most highly anticipated motherboard for the Athlon processor. On our first trip to Taipei, Taiwan for this year’s Computexwe were amazed at the respect ASUS was given, even by competing motherboard manufacturers.
7av We also were able to run the Duron at MHz, with a core voltage of 1. ASUS has attained this high level of respect by consistently delivering some of the most reliable, high performing and flexible motherboard designs we have ever seen. Overclocking the A7V is easy due to the jumper-less design, and the board is quite stable at overclocked speeds.
ASUS A7V, Slot A, AMD Motherboard
When I review motherboards, I don’t spend much time doing benchmarks, because the benchmarks between motherboards are usually very close. There are just two solder joints on the board, and you need to find a U-shaped piece of metal which you can use to short out those wsus solder joints. Shutdown times were another story altogether. As we continue asjs comparison aus the KT7-RAID, the heatsink on the VIA North Bridge isn’t actively cooled like that on the ABIT board, which assu fine, since we saw no need for it, at the same time, there is no thermal compound placed between the North Bridge and the heatsink itself to aid in transferring heat.
Log in Don’t have an account? The layout of the board is acceptable, but as with most Socket-A motherboards, the placement of components near the catches for the heat sink clips makes attachment of the heat sink a risky endeavor. Here’s what Asus has to say about the A7V: But on the A7V, when I moved the jumper from it’s normal aeus at 3. 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.
We haven’t seen an immediate need for including thermal compound in this location and it doesn’t affect stability as far as we know, so we didn’t count against ASUS for not including it. Overclockers want an easy and quick method of x7v the CMOS, if necessary, and don’t want to hunt around for a bent piece of metal I used tweezers.
While it is difficult to say exactly why ASUS chose to mount these components vertically, there are a number of possibilities that could hold true. I’m much more interested in things like layout of components, selection of features, ease of installation and setup, and especially stability.
I increased the bus frequency in the BIOS in steps, to see how far it would overclock before failing. The lack of a convenient way of clearing the CMOS can be frustrating if you are overclocking the system.

The A7V is a well made board with an unusual addition not found on many motherboards. Having components in the way makes getting w7v the clips difficult.
As motherboards go, the A7V is a well rounded product. There are a few design goof-ups in my opinion, but overall, the A7V is a good socket-A motherboard.
