A7V333 AUDIO DRIVER

ASUS 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 6-pin ports are useful since 4-pin to 6-pin cables are much more common than 6-pin to 6-pin cables. 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. Log in Don’t have an account?

With the prevalence of home networks and broadband internet, we would assume ASUS would find that a more valuable feature than the on-board Firewire, if they had to make a choice between the two. 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.

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. 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.

The AGP Pro50 slot really only makes sense a7vv333 workstation-users, as the only cards that require it are made by 3D Labs. A simple BIOS option that most other motherboard manufacturers offer would clear aa7v333 this frustration in an instant.

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. We’ve brought up the issue with ASUS but have not received an answer yet. 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.

Other than the issue with Kingston memory, a7vv333 A7V exhibited no stability problems during our testing even with all three DIMM slots populated. 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.

With audik prevalence of home networks and broadband internet, we would assume ASUS would find that a more valuable feature than the on-board Firewire, if they had to make a choice between the two.

ASUS A7V333 Motherboard Review

The board worked a7b333 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. 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.

Continuing along with the elegance theme, ASUS is one of the first motherboard manufacturers to implement serious thermal protection on their Socket-A motherboards. You can disable the controller through an on-board jumper but it’s much more convenient to have the option in the BIOS.

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 audiio motherboard we’re betting a77v333 blame is with ASUS for this one.

CMedia – 6 Channel. Normally, we don’t complain too much about layouts, unless there are some serious issues which was the case with the A7V Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. 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. 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.

Of the three memory slots that are on-board, we were happy to find out that you can populate all three, without sacrificing the stability of the motherboard. Unfortunately here is also where we ran into the first problem with the A7V; audii board will not work with Kingston’s DDR ValueRam at DDR speeds, though the same memory worked fine in all other motherboards.
