The ABIT Computer TH7-RAID is a Motherboard designed for use with PC systems, which support ATX form factor. Built around the Intel chipset, it efficiently. Apr 16, Chipset. Model, Intel Northbridge, Southbridge, ICH2. Bus type, QDR , MHz, 64 bit. Bus bandwith, MB/s. RAM type (1). Apr 3, I have been extremely impressed with the Abit TH7-II throughout testing, it has not failed once, and stability has been excellent. Despite.

If the boot up is successful, the display will show FF. Big news, no news, and future aibt. This is why the additional ATX back plate is supplied with the board. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. A performance increase of marks, which is not bad considering only the memory bandwidth has increased.
I have also benchmarked the board with two different settings, to test the performance of the Rdram when running at PC speeds. This is still an area where few boards are available, with only competition from MSI, Asus, Gigabyte and Intel with its reference board. The reference design requires you to manually install two separate ait brackets on each side of the HSF to lock it ahit place.
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. CuttinHobo I heard he prefers to be called a Seth Lord 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.
Running at x in 32 bit colour, with detail set to high, the increased bandwidth translates into an extra 5 fps. Log in Don’t have an account?
abitt September by Mike Andrawes on September 12, To top it off, the board now features a much better diagnostic tool for better troubleshooting. Even a quick glance reveals something a little unusual in the bottom left corner of the board. During the boot up process the two digit display with show two hexadecimal numbers, corresponding to the initialization steps the motherboard is making.
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.
The other bios features are fairly standard, there are no memory timing options on the board, as they are not required with Rambus. I used the following components for testing, the cpu being one I have found that will overclock extremely well at low voltages, so is ideal for pushing this board to its limits. Firstly, Serious Sam, running the Karnack demo. The area around the socket is also clear from obstructions, and will allow for a substantial heat sink to be applied.
Three-high USB ports and a vertical audio port configuration. First, there are three stacked USB ports.
When rh7 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.

There is also a retaining clip for the AGP card, so any LAN gamers will not find wbit coming loose when they are moving their boxes around.
You can find products similar to this one for sale below. ABIT also aren’t afraid to do things differently to other motherboard manufactures, this is good. Read on to find out. The Rambus options are for the divider, which can be set at MHz for a 3x divider, MHz for a 4x hh7, or set to Auto. 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.
This shows that at the higher resolution the graphics card is still the bottleneck. Abit has a couple of abiy goodies down there that I’ll explain in a minute.
When running at MHz I can set the Rdram divider to either 3x giving mewhich is stock speed for PC memory, or change it to 4x which gives me PC The options allowed vary depending on the type of CPU that you put into the board.
Does this motherboard deserve to carry the ABIT name? This time, running at x, 32 bit colour with textures and quality on full. I have used various programs to test the performance, including 3d MarkSisoft Sandra, Super Pi, Seti, and others. 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.
The manual is well laid out, and comprehensive, covering installation of the board, bios settings, and installation of the chipset th sound drivers. The micro strips to aid stability, and the clear space around the socket. One of these buttons acts as a power switch while other is a reset switch. Despite pushing the limits of my CPU, and constantly rebooting and changing settings, the board takes it all in its stride.
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.
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. A minor flaw is how close the clear cmos jumper is to the floppy drive connector, it can make abot quite awkward to get to once the board is installed into the case.
Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! Abti Pentium IV 1. With an older Willamette, the vcore allowed is up to 2.
