Tuning Extreme: Overclocking with the Asus A7V

Processor Tuning: Asus A7V At The Limit

We already described the extensive overclocking possibilities for the Asus A7V in the article Modifying An Asus A7V Motherboard For Duron-Overclocking . Today we demonstrate a method that takes the clock frequency to the extreme but keeps the processor at a stable level.

This requires a slight modification of the motherboard, however. By following the instructions below you can alter any Asus A7V to enable perfect overclocking of AMD's Athlon and Duron processors.

We have put it to the test: After the retrofit a Duron 750 runs totally stable at 1000 MHz! An Athlon 1000 even reaches 1133 MHz. You will need a little experience with the soldering iron to make this very simple alteration.
