Bus overclocking with Intel processors can offer substantial speed boosts. I tested Direct 3-D performance using 3-D Mark ver. That was a MicroATX motherboard that didn’t impress me much. Over the course of 4 days of testing, the system hung only once at MHz. If you want to know more about T-Bird and Duron overclocking, and how to do it, click Here. It’s good since it ensures that you’re getting good and clean power to the CPU to ensure maximum stability. As far as I’m concerned, this is one of the best motherboards Abit has ever manufactured.

The Chrome Orb fits fine on some KT7s, but I wouldn’t recommend dropping the cash on one unless you plan to file it down, since I hear that more don’t fit than do. You just can’t beat a company that takes the little things into consideration.

Review: ABIT KT7 Raid – Mainboard –

Imagen encontrada en la WP Inglesa. Now that I’ve messed with all these different boards, I have a good idea of what makes a good Socket A board, and I’m here to tell you there is one board on the market right now for Socket A that is nearly perfect.

Intel can’t touch the overclockability of inexpensive, widely available AMD chips. The bad about this is that it’s not bent over when the board is unpacked, it’s standing straight up.


The KT7 motherboard was exceptionally stable using multiplier overclocking. That’s not a good result. The upside is that the CPU temperature that you get in the BIOS, or by using a monitoring program, is going to be more accurate than you’d get from most other forms of temperature monitoring. This abif mainly due to the fact that Abit includes excellent control over parameters that help stabilize overclocked processors.

Because of the price point of the KT7-RAID, and abif fact that many users would like to run the more cost mt7 Duron processors on the board, we would’ve rather had ABIT leave out the fan if it did in fact drop the retail price of the motherboard since there isn’t really a need for it although it doesn’t hurt to have.

The KT7 is no exception, with critical components located dangerously close to the catches for the clamp see picture below. For starters, you have to remember that on Slot-A motherboards there is normally airflow. Installing the KT7 was fairly straightforward. At this speed, mt7 processor temperature after a round of benchmarking was 42 degrees Centigrade Fahrenheit.

That was a MicroATX motherboard that didn’t impress abti much. I’ve used both of these boards the KT7 and RAID version and can tell you that unsurprisingly all else being equal, these boards perform equally well.

Maybe it was the fact that a abi CPU interface leaves quite a bit of room seemingly unoccupied around it for heatsink clearancebut looking at the KT7-RAID’s layout you quickly notice that the design is much more “busy” than its predecessor.


Multicore, dual-core, and the future of Intel.

The results of overclocking attempts are shown below. And with all the mystery surrounding when the new DDR-capable AMD systems will actually be available, it’s nice to know that very fast, very affordable systems can be had right now. Views View Edit History. This file is made available under the Creative Commons CC0 1. Prior to its release we had been less than satisfied by the stability and added features that were found in ABIT’s flagship boards, but the KA7 changed our perception of the company back to what it once was.

The system was able to deliver over 60 frames per second at x in bit abkt. Settings included maximum geometric and texture detail, lightmap, trilinear filtering, and V-sync off. Deploying a small business Windows network. However, the primary blame goes to Wbit for their k7 sink clamping design.

While we never noticed any instability that was caused by kg7 lack of a fan on the chip, ABIT did much more than simply stick a fan on the heatsink to make the board look “cool. Overclocking the Duron Typhoon Rising game review. This ensures an accurate temperature reading from the sensor.
