Without multiplier adjustment – which, on old Slot A boards, is done with little plug-in gizmoes on the processor like the one you can see in my older piece here – it was hard to get a decent amount more speed out of the CPU. It ended as the usual big pile of problems. This motherboard is great, I think it’s a keeper! But it’s about time for an upgrade anyway. An update of the BIOS to v.

Higher voltage settings can let you get a balky processor to run stably at a higher speed, as long as you’ve got enough cooling to deal with the extra heat created. So DDR is cool. If that doesn’t work – or if you set a BIOS password and then forget asus a7a266 motherboard it is – the normal strategy is to unplug the computer and use a jumper on the asus a7a266 motherboard to clear the CMOS memory and set everything back to defaults.


The extra contacts in the Pro slot allow cards that need asus a7a266 motherboard much as watts of power to work against the 25 watts that normal AGP can supplybut only pro graphics workstation boards actually need this much power. My review board had z7a266 defect – the right sound channel didn’t work.

When you first open the package the first thing you notice is the size of this board. I am currently running it with the fsb at Mhz, which my cpu asus a7a266 motherboard at Mhz.

It’s actually pretty easy. An update of the BIOS to v.

Asus A7A motherboard Review date: You want the two separate pins at the end of asus a7a266 motherboard main case connector header block, not the “IDE LED” pins within that block. Both add up to an MHz core speed, and that’s all that matters.

If you’re happy to buy DDR memory along with your new motherboard, though, there’s no point spending more money to asus a7a266 motherboard a board with only two DDR slots and motherboars SDR slots you’re not going to use. Voila, the Asus A7A Like many current Socket A boards, the A7A’s got three three-pin fan connectors labelled CPU, PSU and Asus a7a266 motherboard, but you can use them for anything you likeand a temperature sensor in the middle of the CPU socket, where it can get a half-decent idea of how hot the processor is.

So I decided to put the fsb back at Mhz.

The lack of multiplier adjustment isn’t as important as it used to be, though. This motherboard is great, I think it’s a keeper!

VIA KT266A Motherboard Roundup – January 2002

I didn’t run a benchmark with the fsb at Mhz for fear of overheating my cpu. Confusingly, there are two places you can plug in an Asus a7a266 motherboard activity LED, both documented in the manual, but only one of them z7a266 to work. You might as well make use of that old 64 or 32Mb module, if you’ve got a slot asus a7a266 motherboard put it in. They’re fast, and they’re cheap.

It’s a solidly made, well documented, full-featured board. Mohterboard that updated A7A comes asus a7a266 motherboard though, we either have to wait for a BIOS update with multiplier adjustment, or just do without. DDR memory isn’t going to stay painfully expensive, though. As soon asus a7a266 motherboard I address my cooling problems and unlock the multiplier on my cpu I will push it farther!

Processor installation was very easy and there is nothing to get in the way of the heat sink. And which also gives you a couple of front-panel USB ports. I have ran this thing hard and it just keeps on giving. If you want to save a few buck go with a Duron processor and PC That’s what happened with Asus’ earlier A7V, one of the first overclock-friendly Socket A motherboards.

And mptherboard the usual complement of motherbozrd input connectors so you can connect other gadgets’ sound output to the built asus a7a266 motherboard sound hardware – CD audio, modem, Aux and internal microphone.

I had the front side bus at Mhz and running fine. It just kept rebooting into windows and the power switch would not work.

But it’s about time for an upgrade anyway.
