The KT7 is no exception, with critical components located dangerously close to the catches for the clamp see picture below. That was a MicroATX motherboard that didn’t impress me much. However, this was intentional on Abit’s part. The KT7 has a fan and heat sink on the Northbridge of the VIA chipset, which should help keep things cool if you decide to overclock the front side bus. The ATX power supply connector is placed where it should be, at the very right edge of the motherboard, allowing you to minimize the distance you have to stretch the ATX power cable from your PSU, thus decreasing the number of obstructions in your case that would decrease airflow. Not really a big deal, but certainly something that could be better designed. New drivers may improve future performance.

Deadly Shadows game review USB 2. Dell Latitude D laptop review. The one thing that needs improving on all socket-A motherboards is the mechanism for clamping the heat sink on the processor.
Review: ABIT KT7 Raid – Mainboard –
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.
That raised an interesting question: You need to bend the sensor down just enough so that the CPU goes into the socket, and then the spring action of the heavy leads that connect the thermal sensor to the motherboard will hold the sensor tight against the bottom of the CPU.
This is the coolest thing to happen to overclocking in years. The KT7 motherboard was exceptionally stable using multiplier overclocking. Minor modifications to the edge of the Chrome Orb with a file will keep it from hitting on the capacitors, and in some cases like mine daid no need. Provided that they already have a solid KT motherboard design, tk7 a KTA solution often requires little more than a few design tweaks and a drop in of the pin-compatible A North Bridge.
So depending on what the different benchmarks are stressing, the ATA RAID array can offer very competitive performance under the right conditions. Intel can’t touch the overclockability of inexpensive, widely available AMD chips.
So in case you’re reading this review and thinking that you could never have ablt need for an onboard RAID controller, you can feel comfortable ignoring all the benchmarks for the RAID controller and assume that abitt get equivalent performance from the board.

That’s not a good result. Let’s hit some specs before I get much further here Realistically, manufacturers will also have to make sure that their board design can work at the increased FSB. This abif accomplished at the factory by using a laser to cut several contacts on the surface of these processors.
Typhoon Rising game review. Not really a big deal, but certainly something that could be better designed.
ABIT KT7-RAID – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT133 Series
They both made a return to ABIT’s roots, what made them the name they are today. Bus overclocking with Intel processors can offer substantial speed boosts.
You just can’t beat a company that takes the little things into consideration. The Abit KT7-RAID motherboard has been out for a couple months, and it has been reviewed extensively on the web, but I thought it would aabit worth taking a quick look at nonetheless. As obvious as it seems, the whole difference between these boards is the incorporation of the HPT controller chip from HighPoint Technologies.

Overclocking the Duron A closer look at Intel’s processor numbers and road map. Take the Poll Technica. We have discussed before that with KT chipset neither the heat sink nor the fan is necessary for the North Bridge, even though the chip gets relatively hot during heavy usage. T he chart below compares the performance of several different hard drive types using Scisoft’s Sandra hard drive benchmark.
It needs to be reworked to make it easier to abt and unlatch the clamp without endangering components on the motherboard.
The future of Prescott. Since their first entry into the Slot-A market was an instant hit, it isn’t unbelievable that its successor would at least equal it in shock value at least, we didn’t expect it to surpass it however.

Alternative AIM clients for Windows. It’s good since it ensures arid you’re getting good and clean power to the CPU to ensure maximum stability. The KT7 is no exception, with critical components located dangerously close to the catches for the clamp see picture below.
