Since ASUS is wsus of the largest OEM suppliers of motherboards, they have to please their customers in those markets as well, so sometimes their designs are not fully geared towards hardware enthusiasts.

In fact, the A7V was among the most stable motherboards we have tested and did not crash once in 48 hours of stress testing. With its unique design, the board delivers decent performance and great stability.
One of the reasons for their successes is that the KTA chipset is extremely similar to the good old KT chipset, which is itself virtually identical to the KX This is quite impressive since we generally encountered at least one crash for every 24 hours.

The result is the A7V Fortunately, RAID 0 is the setting that the vast majority of people are likely to use. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. With the old A7V, we complained that the lack of 1MHz increments hurt overclocking potential for those looking to maximize the performance over the CPU. ASUS has always been one of the most solid and well-respected motherboard manufacturers in the industry, providing high performance, azus most importantly, high quality motherboards for all users.
Instead of sitting back and raking in the sales, they decided to learn from others and listen to users to make their next generation board even better.
The KTA is essentially a chipset for performance fanatics.
If you’re still not satisfied with that, there is already information on the web that explains how to get full support for the missing two RAID configurations. Introduction The KTA market is currently one of the most hotly discussed topics in the computer market.
This was probably done as a cost cutting measure, and it may still be possible to order the board with the chip installed as an option. They have made great inroads into this market over the past year with their JumperFree BIOS, but to adjust the multiplier on early versions of their KT board, one still had to use jumpers.
With a default FSB of MHz even for Duron processorsthe capability to reach MHz on Athlons, the best memory performance from a VIA chipset ever, and the ability to fill up those DIMM slots at a low price, overclockers and enthusiasts began flocking to boards based on this chipset. The board physically looks more or less the same as the A7V, including the unique vertically mounted voltage regulator setup.
ASUS isn’t really a company associated with overclocking. Not only does allow you to run your system beyond specifications with great ease; it is also a “discrete” chipset, in that it features no integrated VGA. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
One of their more recent successes was the CUSL2, a Socket motherboard that simply stood out from the rest of the crowd with its myriad of features, excellent performance, and rock solid stability. Suddenly, KTA motherboards became enormously appealing. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. But then, things didn’t initially turn out as the DDR camp hoped: Fortunately, by leaving them all at their default positions, nearly all adjustments can be made in the BIOS, including the multiplier.
Multiplier settings are also nicely implemented in the BIOS this time around, so you should have no problem overclocking on the fly, without shutting down your system.

It’s clear that ASUS listened to their customers and made the corresponding changes.
