The K7M turned out to be the most mature AMD board in a time when finding a solid Athlon motherboard was quite difficult. We delete comments that violate our policy , which we encourage you to read. Another example of the ASUS standard would be their K7M, quite possibly the most highly anticipated motherboard for the Athlon processor. As we continue the comparison to the KT7-RAID, the heatsink on the VIA North Bridge isn’t actively cooled like that on the ABIT board, which is fine, since we saw no need for it, at the same time, there is no thermal compound placed between the North Bridge and the heatsink itself to aid in transferring heat.

The connector, being positioned just along the edge of the first DIMM slot, doesn’t get in the way of much and it is chioset better location than we’ve seen others place it; however, ABIT’s “along the edge” positioning would be even more desirable.
We have yet to see ASUS do something that didn’t have a very good reason behind it, so we’re going chispet give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that their engineers know what they’re doing. ASUS has attained this high level of respect by consistently delivering some of the most reliable, high performing and flexible motherboard designs we have ever seen.

If you remember, the release of the K7M wasn’t as clean cut as most of ASUS’ earlier motherboard launches, simply because the company’s close ties to Intel made releasing an AMD based motherboard for use with the AMD Athlon far chipste the best way to maintain a healthy relationship with Intel.

Since their cautious entry into the Athlon z7m market, ASUS has become much more comfortable with releasing boards that support AMD’s flagship. Turion 64 X2 mobile technology. Laptops by Gordon Gottsegen 10 days ago.

The thought of an upgradeable VRM module had come to chkpset upon first seeing the A7V, especially with the power needs of the higher clocked Socket-A processors rising dramatically.

Once again, ASUS was armed with the same chipset as everyone else, but they were simply able to produce a better implementation than the competition.

While it is difficult to say exactly why ASUS chose to mount these components vertically, there are a number of possibilities that could hold true. An instant winner in our eyes, the CUSL2 took the same chipset that every other motherboard manufacturer was equipped with, and managed to produce a motherboard that was more impressive than any other design based on that chipset. We reviewed a lot of laptops in After a bit of toying around with ways to lessen chopset involvement with the production of the K7M, ASUS eventually rose to the point where they came out and fully supported the motherboard.
ASUS has always been one of the most solid and well-respected motherboard manufacturers in the industry. If need be, ASUS chioset theoretically easily replace the VRM module it’s not plugged into a socket, so you would have to de-solder the connections before removing the board with a quick RMA back to the factory, but then again, we’re not sure if this was what ASUS had in mind.
