ASUS A8V Motherboard Review

Quote from the review at

“The ASUS A8V-Deluxe is one of the first motherboards to hit market for AMD’s new socket 939 platform, and it comes loaded with all the bells and whistles needed to satiate the minds of the enthusiast crowd. Built around VIA technologies K8T800 Pro and the SB VIA VT8237 chipsets the board sizes in at 12″x 9.6″(30.5cm x 24.5cm) in the standard ATX Form Factor and will fit most mid tower or larger enclosures. The board comes with its own removable rear I/O shield that comes in the retail box; this is needed to fit your board correctly in your enclosure. Featuring dual-channel memory support and utilizing un-buffered DIMMs the board can accommodate up to 4GB of PC3200 DDR SDRAM via the boards 4 DIMM slots. Making the change to using un-buffered non-ECC memory in lieu of only buffered ECC memory should help alleviate high CAS latency times, and help speed up the systems overall performance. “
