iXBT-Hardware heeft een review online staan van het Asus K7V KX133 moederbord met 5xPCI, 1xAMR, 1xAGP Pro en 0xISA. Het bordje werd goed beoordeeld hoewel er wel wat kritiek was over de layout van de K7V:
ASUS K7V has a rather unusual number of expansion slots: 5/0/1/1 (PCI/ISA/AMR/AGP). In other words, to some users' great disappointment, there are no ISA slots on K7V. Although this configuration meets the PC99 specification, old ISA devices are still used sometimes. Full-size expansion cards can be installed in any of the five PCI slots. The fourth and fifth PCI slots use the same IRQ.
As to the overall design of the mainboard, we found several problems here. For example, the DIMM slots are situated so close to the AGP slot, that an installed graphics card blocks the DIMM slots clips. This means that in order to install or replace memory modules you will have to remove the graphics card from the AGP slot. Moreover, ASUS K7V's depth slightly exceeds the usual dimensions: standard mainboards are 3-4cm shorter. This means that you may face some problems when installing K7V into several cases, so you should always bear in mind the size. Other than that, there are no more comments: FDD and IDE connectors, as well as the power supply connector are situated where they, actually, should be according to the ATX specification - in front of the DIMM slots. This is a particularly nice thing, taking into account that ASUS's previous Slot A mainboard, K7M, had its power connector situated between Slot A and DIMM slots. This disposition not only hindered air circulation near the processor heatsink, but also didn't allow using larger heatsinks needed for extreme overclocking.
