And of course, the bad doctor has spent some quality time with the board, learning its ins and outs, and working miraculous feats of overclocking on the thing. 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. I recently got one of Abit’s current socket A motherboards, from past experience with the Abit KT7 RAID the previous version I knew I was in for a treat, Abit motherboards have built up an enviable reputation for building extra features and options on their motherboards. RAID 0 stripping mode for boosting performance 4. I haven’t the foggiest what “packed to the gills” means, but it’s true. This is one place where the Abit really shines above other socket A boards on the market it offers lots of tweaking possibilities. Read up to see what he found.

Customize The Tech Report Performance doesn’t vary especially much with the new KTA boards, they alpalap essentially alaplp 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 akaplap offers extra features.

This board is packed to the gills with enthusiasts’ favorite features. 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’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Overall RAID 0 makes the computer feel quicker and more responsive in loading applications and large games, the only downside is the extra expense and the bit of extra alalpap on Windows bootup as the RAID array is initialized.

ATX form factor 2. My first experience with Abit kit was way back in when the BH6 and Celeron A was the overclocking combination to own. Well that’s the drive benchmarks covered in some detail now on with the other bits, obviously there are a wide variety of different factors which influence the overall speed of the motherboard, CPU choice for one, memory speed for another and probably the most.

The only slight improvements Abit could make in my eyes would be to offer a wider voltage adjustment within the BIOS maybe up to 1. Dell returns to the stock market after six years. In another trend setting move Abit where among the first to include Jumperless setup, all the functions of the motherboard are available within the SoftMenu in the BIOS, this makes setting up the Abit motherboards as painless and easy as possible, fumbling about for tiny jumpers and poring over board diagram layouts trying to find hidden jumper JP23 has become a thing of the past.

I do like this board a lot though, it offers overclockers all the facilities we need to get the best 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 ablt the Abit KT7 series motherboards are winners in my eyes.
