They’ve included all the usual features, plus a few extras we’re not used to seeing; I’ll get to those a little later on. I used the following components for testing, the cpu being one I have found that will overclock wbit well at low voltages, so is ideal for pushing this board to its limits. This is still an area where few boards are available, with only competition from MSI, Asus, Gigabyte and Intel with its reference board. Fortunately, having all the IDE ports at the top of the board allows cables to reach the top drive bays of full-tower cases easily.
Board Features The TH7-II is a well specified board, and comes supplied with everything you could need to get it up and running. The options allowed vary depending on the type tn7 CPU that you put into the board. The micro strips to aid stability, and the clear space around the socket.
When calculating 32 million decimal places of PI, with the CPU at and memory atit was just over 2 minutes faster, showing that the increased memory bandwidth does help in real world use.
Even a quick glance reveals something a little unusual in the bottom left corner of abitt board.
The socket area is clear of obstacles for even the biggest heat sinks. Building on their laurels after the success they achieved with that board, they have now introduced the TH7-II, for use with socket PIV.
Abit has always been the overclocker’s choice, as they implement numerous features that other manufacturers do not, such as the very easy to use SoftMenu III system. Despite pushing the limits of my CPU, and constantly rebooting and changing settings, the board takes it all in its stride.
When running at MHz I can set the Rdram divider to either 3x giving mewhich is stock speed for PC memory, or abbit it to 4x which gives me PC This might look very impressive in artificial benchmarks, but how does it perform in the real world.
Intel Motherboard Roundup: No Interruptions Day Shortbread. Another popular program is Seti, many overclockers are in teams, and they always want the fastest performance possible when running Seti. There is also a retaining clip for the AGP card, so any LAN gamers will not find it coming loose when they are moving their boxes around. The Rambus options are for the divider, which can be set at MHz for a 3x divider, MHz for a 4x divider, or set to Auto. Next up the multimedia abig.
Subscribe to our Newsletter. The four memory slots are positioned well away from the AGP port, so that when you have memory installed, the retaining clips do not foul on the back of the AGP card, another thoughtful piece of design.
With every new motherboard ABIT produce, you can be assured of the highest quality, at least that’s what my experience with ABIT over the past couple of years. I ran a few more tests to see if the memory bandwidth was a limiting factor.
Three-high USB ports and a vertical audio port configuration. Neutronbeam Besides money, let us know Seth what WE can do to help out–there’s a lot of sma Just take a look at their wide range of products on their website, they are all well known names I assure you. The area around the socket is also clear from obstructions, and will allow for a substantial heat sink to be applied. The micro strips to aid stability, and the clear space around the socket Another good feature that has been implemented is the use of a diagnostic display, which can show error codes and allow quick and easy diagnosis of any problems that might occur when installing the board.
ABIT Computer Corporation are known aabit making some of the best, most overclockable, highest quality and fastest motherboards we have ever seen this side of Mars.

I have used various programs to test the performance, including 3d MarkSisoft Sandra, Super Pi, Seti, and others.
Read on and find out the answer! Click to find out more. This was all set up, and then a clean install of Windows was done. Things can get a little tight around the IDE ports. I have also benchmarked the board with two different settings, to test the performance of the Rdram when running at PC speeds. Running at x in 32 bit colour, with detail set to high, the increased bandwidth translates into an extra 5 fps. To top it off, the board now features a much better diagnostic tool for better troubleshooting.
