Except for the potential risk Asus A7V(MB) clamping the heat sink clips, installation was easy. On first bootup, I was very surprised by the length of time required for the system to boot. At first, I thought there might be a problem, but it eventually booted normally. While Asus A7V(MB) 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!

Warranty & Support

This is the longest boot time we Asus A7V(MB) ever recorded for an IDE motherboard. This cut the boot time by about 30 seconds, but the boot time still remained in the 2 minute range. Just to be sure it wasn't a bad board, I tried a second A7V board, which exhibited the same slow boot behavior.

The graph below shows how the testing went. The system failed at MHz, and failed again at MHz with the core voltage boosted to 1. Getting Athlons and Durons to run stably at MHz is about as good as you Asus A7V(MB) expect. Multiplier Overclocking: Asus outdid themselves when they decided to add the ability to change the CPU multiplier setting on the A7V.

We had been worried that bus overclocking would be all we could get with Asus A7V(MB) new T-Birds and Durons. But Asus added the ability to change the multiplier right on the motherboard.
