Despite pushing the limits of my CPU, and constantly rebooting and changing settings, the board takes it all in its stride. During our overclocking tests we were able to push the board to run at MHz without compromising stability, tied for the best result among the boards here, again with the ASUS P4T. The manual features a comprehensive list of the error codes, and it does work. This can be overcome with a modified bios that allows up to 1. Overall, the TH7 once again shows how dedicated ABIT is towards the hardware community, as evidenced by the variety of overclocking options that yielded very good results for us. Next up I ran Super Pi, and calculated Pi to 32 million decimal places. With an older Willamette, the vcore allowed is up to 2.

Another popular program is Seti, many overclockers are in teams, and they always want the fastest performance possible when running Seti. I have also benchmarked the board with two different settings, to test the performance of the Rdram when running at PC speeds. A minor flaw is how close the clear cmos jumper is to the floppy drive connector, it can make it quite awkward to get to once the board is installed into the case. The TH7 again offers a wide range of overclocking features.
You can find products similar to this one for sale below. This is why the additional ATX back plate is supplied with the board. This might look very impressive in artificial benchmarks, but how does it perform in the real world. ABIT Computer Aabit are known for making some of the best, most overclockable, highest quality and fastest motherboards we have ever seen this side of Mars.
This feature is especially useful when you are overclocking your system, so you can pinpoint the bottleneck of your system for the best overclocking result.
This utilised a socket and was used with the original PIV, the Willamette. Intel Pentium IV 1. Intel Motherboard Roundup: For example, ABIT have used a different and better, I feel, retention mechanism to lock the heatsink down on the Intel Pentium 4 processor in the Socket compared to the Intel reference design – And that’s really just the beginning. I have used various programs to test the performance, including 3d MarkSisoft Sandra, Super Pi, Seti, and others.
This was all set up, avit then a clean install of Windows was done. Does this motherboard deserve to carry the ABIT name? Sign up now Username Password Remember Me.
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 ablt installing the board. These are very small strips which according to Abit increase the stability of the board when overclocking.
The increase here is only 2 fps, but it’s still an increase. There is t7h a list of Abit contact details in the back should you encounter any troubles. One of these buttons acts as a power switch while other is a wbit switch. With an older Willamette, the vcore allowed is up to 2. ABIT also aren’t afraid to do things differently to other motherboard manufactures, this is good.
The other bios features are fairly standard, there are no memory timing options on the board, as they are not required with Rambus. It may lack things like USB2, 6 channel audio, etc, but it more than makes up for it in the stability and performance. First off, I ran 3d Markevery th77 favourite benchmark.
During our overclocking tests we were able to push the board to run at MHz without compromising stability, tied for the best result among the boards here, again with the ASUS P4T.
Next up I ran Super Pi, and calculated Pi to 32 million decimal places. You should abkt careful about changing the memory divider, is not all Rambus is capable of running at high fsb’s.

The micro strips to aid stability, and the clear space around the t7. The i does not officially support bait speed, that will not be implemented until the ie later on this year, but the Abit board had no trouble running at that speed, which provides some future proofing in these fast moving times.
If the system fails during startup, you can refer to the manual for the error code to help determine what went wrong.
