Except for the potential risk when clamping the heat sink clips, installation was easy. While booting off of an ATA66 drive with Windows 98SE installed, and without any ATA drives attached, the cold boot time varied between 2 minutes 20 seconds and 2 minutes 40 seconds! This cut the boot time by about 30 seconds, but the boot time still remained in the 2 minute range. The system failed at MHz, and failed again at MHz with the core voltage boosted to 1. Overclockers want an easy and quick method of clearing the CMOS, if necessary, and don’t want to hunt around for a bent piece of metal I used tweezers.

Asus A7V Motherboard mini review Dr. All times are GMT I recommned at least the or higher pref.

It sounds as though it is enabled either through bios or a jumper, but looking over the manual quickly, I don’t see it. Ultra BIOS is not installed because there are no drivers attached Anyone can tell me what is this ultra bios and where do i get the drivers.?
It’s worth a look around 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 two solder joints. The system failed at MHz, and failed again at MHz with the core voltage boosted to 1. Well you have a Promise Raid contoller on that board as an option. This is the longest boot time we have ever recorded for an IDE motherboard. Having components in the way makes getting to the clips difficult. One slip with a pliers while trying to hook the spring clip on the catch, and you could gouge the motherboard surface.
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.
There are a hoop of BIOSes here 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. While booting off of an ATA66 drive with Windows 98SE installed, and without any ATA drives attached, the cold boot time varied between 2 minutes 20 seconds and 2 minutes 40 seconds!
It’s late and im tired so maybe im completely miss-understanding this.

If everything works, maybe just try removing it and anything you see there in “hidden” view like it in Safe Mode. We had been worried that bus overclocking would be all we could get with the new T-Birds and Durons.
It’s not only a pain, it is difficult and downright irritating. The graph below shows how the testing went. Shutdown times were another story altogether.
Results 1 to 14 of asuss For more information on the Windows shutdown bug, go here. Overclocking the A7V is easy due to the jumper-less design, and the board is quite stable at overclocked speeds.
But on the A7V, when I moved the jumper from it’s normal position at 3. PS-if you do have ATA drives then there is aasus problem if they are not being detected. The lack of a convenient way of clearing the CMOS can be frustrating if you are overclocking the system. Just to be sure it wasn’t a bad board, I tried a second A7V board, which exhibited the same slow boot behavior.
As motherboards go, the A7V is a well rounded asuss.
ASUS A7V – motherboard – ATX – Slot A – KT133 Series
I can’t find it, I’ll look better tomorrow and let you know If you do not have drives that are ie-they are 66 then it does not load it. There are a few design goof-ups in uxb opinion, but overall, the A7V is a good socket-A motherboard. Asus outdid themselves when they decided to w7v the ability to change the CPU multiplier setting on the A7V. Thanks for the quick response, I just flashed the Bios yesterday with the first one at the top of this page: We were able to run the MHz T-bird at 9.
The A7V is a full-sized ATX motherboard, so make sure the case you are using will take a full-size board.
