If you want to keep it in good shape, get it recapped. My first experience with Abit kit was way back in when the BH6 and Celeron A was the overclocking combination to own. The item is out of stock and estimated to arrive on the date provided. I used the Zalman NB47J coolers: This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. Just about everyone plays games so lets see how the Abit copes with a few gaming benchmarks. This site hosts no abandonware.

RAID 0 stripping mode for boosting performance 4. You can read about my troubles with it here. Like you, I replaced the northbridge coolers on all of abut boards.
Oh and yes, my first cooler was one of those Dual Orb things The Athlon also uses quite a bit of power. What amazed me most was that the tech actually booted up the machine, noticed the problems of the thing not being able to just boot the OS in one go If you wait for the picture above to load you will see the memory raie are taken at the various different settings and finally with the FSB maxed out at MHZ with all the various options in aibt Abit BIOS turned on for extra memory performance.
I wouldn’t trust them on anything more powerful. There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. The only bit where RAID doesn’t seem to increase the performance is in the random read and write tests, though these results are certainly no lower than a single drive, the buffered and sequential transfer rates are much higher than with a single drive. It took a lot of trouble to convince these people that there is something wrong.

Users browsing this forum: The NB32K that you’re using is probably a better choice, but I could never find those for sale. I ran it with a MHz Athlon Thunderbird CPU and it easily got the Tbird up to MHz, obviously this has a lot to do with the choice of CPU, but the Abit board with all it’s tweaks offers the best possible chance of overclocking the CPU and running it successfully, Abit have been loudly touting the 3 phase power circuits built on the board whilst over manufacturers stick with a 2 phase voltage circuit design, the 3 phase power design is supposed to offer better stability under the high current loads of the latest CPU’s and especially the overclocked Tbird’s, and it also offers much better heat dissipation, throughout the boards components.
Stock level indicator Close. Just about everyone plays games so lets see how the Abit copes with a few gaming benchmarks. P3’s run relatively cool, so I’m not worried about this cooler in my Intel systems. Looks like a Zalman universal one.

In advanced Chipset features, the memory timing was set to Turbo, Interleave was set to 4 way and CAS latency set to 2, these are the main options for performance setting, they only work with decent quality branded memory, such as Crucial or Mushkin, with cheaper spec memory you may not be able to turn on all the performance settings and still maintain stability. Also, as others have mentioned, ABIT used cheap crapacitors on their products.
Kta7 have only replaced capacitors that were physically bulging. New item that you can order before we receive stock. It was horribly noisy and didn’t cool all that well. rwid
Performance doesn’t vary especially much with the new KTA boards, they all essentially use the same components, the KTA and the new VIA B Southbridge which has native support for ATA transfer rates, the Abit does however offer lots of features to improve memory performance, these features aren’t implemented on all KT boards, and yet again Abit leads the pack in this area, the key area where Abit seem to lead is in the swift rectification of problems with the boards, usually this is a new BIOS release which fixes and improves speed and offers extra features.
As you change the options, the stock status will automatically update depending on your selection.
This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. But for now, Shake It Baby! I do like this board a lot though, it offers overclockers all the facilities we need to get the avit out of the system, and you cant really expect much more from a motherboard, this along with Abit’s experience in this market and there continual bug fixing BIOS updates and web presence ensures that the Abit KT7 series motherboards are winners in my eyes.
I must say I like Abit motherboards a lot, just about every motherboard I’ve had in the past few years, has been an Abit, I’ve gone from the BH6 through to the BE6 and now on with the KT7 series and they’ve all performed, and kept of performing consistently over the years. Great range of different occasions component….
It will only be a problem if I ever decide to sell the boards. Since they’re not worth much anyway, I’m not really worried about lowering their resale value.
