Stability & Compatibility

You can review our stability/compatibility testing methods here.

Test System

  • ASUS A7V8X
  • AMD Althon 1800+
  • 256MB DDR333 PC2700 Crucial DDR memory
  • Swiftech MCX4000
  • Video: MSI GF3 Standard 64MB DDR SDRAM
  • CD: MSI 52X ATA33 IDE
  • Base System specs

Stability was very solid and reliable with the ASUS A7V8X through all of our torture and stability tests. I encountered no Blue screens, random restarts or other phenomenon associated with an unstable system board. The board was stable at 143MHz through all the tests. With the FSB increased to 150MHz I did get a few restart errors when trying to run 3Dmark 2001SE until I was able to figure out the right ratio of voltage increases to get stability.

Performance

Performance on this board was very well and seems to be near or at the top of its class as far as performance goes. Both the 3D and office tests scored well and show the board to be a contender in this arena of the KT400 chipset. The KT400 is not really much faster than its predecessor the KT333 but it does offer a few more feature options that may or may not be a factor in your buying decision. If you need or want to use the latest memory and the new 8X AGP standard the KT400 chipset is probably the way you want to go when using an AMD solution.
