The socket has plenty of room around it ensuring that even large coolers are relatively easy to fit. Although preferable for overclockers, it certainly puts an emphasis on good cooling. Exit Menu Select this option only if you do not want to save the changes that you made to the Setup program. In DOS mode, type A: This one takes a while to complete. MP3 encoding is something that I regularly do, anything that saves time in that process is most welcome. The words that spring to this reviewer’s mind are stability, quality and reliability.

Refer to the drive documentation to determine the correct value to enter into this field. Table Of Contents 1. Either way, the times posted are extremely impressive in their own right.

It appears as if the better memory a7g266, coupled with running memory asynchronously, really help the MSI here.

As you can see the performance-enhancing 1T command is present too. In this case, adjust or replace the hard disk if necessary and adio data from a back-up source. The item heading in square brackets represents the default setting for that field. Select this option only if you do not want to save the changes that you made aa7v266 the Setup program. The Audio Demo program offers an easy way to test and tune your new speaker system. We’ll start the ball rolling with one of our favourites, namely 3DMark SE.


Let’s move onto another area of media encoding that has historically been heavily reliant on memory throughput, namely DVD encoding.

We ran the board continuously for well over 16 hours with Prime95 and SETI both taxing the system simultaneously. Another fan header sits just to the right of the floppy a77v266. Two serial ports can be used for pointing devices or other serial devices.

We’ll try the test at Fastest to garner an idea of total throughput wudio then at Quality to represent something that mirrors actual playing resolutions. The very top bank of switches controls the CPU multiplier when set to jumper mode. We’re looking at speeds greater than real-time here. BIOS file you saved to the boot disk.

Page 64 This field reserves an address space for ISA expansion cards. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout, the board looks good and everything bar the floppy port is located with thought. Use the default setting for better system reliability.

Again, we see the Asus trailing the MSI at stock speeds but managing to xudio it when ‘clocked to the limit.

When not using the chassis intrusion lead, place a jumper cap over the pins to close the circuit. Then it automatically enters the Advanced menu with a popup display of all the possible CPU internal frequencies.

Let’s have a look at the DRAM timings available. A similar story to the Pifast results, one that should come as no surprise by now. Unlike on some other boards, you can remove the memory without having to remove the AGP card, there is just enough space for you to do so. We weren’t surprised to see the board soldiering on even after extended abuse.


Can you say consistent? It also sports an upgraded South bridge which is now ATA compliant. It appears so, the Asus auido quite catch the MSI at default speeds but naturally edges ahead at overclocked speeds.

We don’t like to see this happen, but in the cut-throat world of motherboard manufacturing, any increase in performance, however gained, is more than audil. Although the memory benchmarks hinted at a difference, we are still surprised to see it almost 3 seconds behind the MSI albeit running asynchronously.

SMBus is a specific implementation of aaudio I C bus, a multi-device bus that allows multiple chips to connect to the same bus and enabling each one to act as a master by initiating data transfer. Page 93 Click OK. One interesting thing to note is that Asus seem to over-supply actual voltage.
