We have given this ASUS A7V8X KT400 motherboard one of our Gold Medals for a variety of reasons not least the selection of features. We would have liked to have seen a Smart Card reader combined with USB ports for the front panel included as we consider this to be basic facilities. Who does not have a digital camera and who wants to fiddle around the back of the computer case.
We had hoped for better performance from this KT400 chipset based motherboard as well. Seems that the full potential of the KT400 chipset has yet to be fully unlocked if this ASUS motherboard is anything to go by. One can only hope that future BIOS upgrades improve the chipset performance compared to the KT333 chipset.
