This shows that at the higher resolution the graphics card is still the bottleneck. When running at MHz I can set the Rdram divider to either 3x giving me , which is stock speed for PC memory, or change it to 4x which gives me PC This might look very impressive in artificial benchmarks, but how does it perform in the real world. The manual features a comprehensive list of the error codes, and it does work. 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 for making some of the best, most overclockable, highest quality and fastest motherboards we have ever seen this side of Mars. I ran the test five times at each speed, and each time the difference ranged between points. If the system fails during startup, you can refer to the manual for the error code to help determine what went wrong. This can be overcome with a modified bios that allows up to 1. The TH7 was the first board that arrived in our labs with a new design, where both metal brackets are actually lever shaped, allowing you to lock the HSF in place just like installing a CPU.
ABIT TH7-RAID, Socket 423, Intel Motherboard
Intel Pentium IV 1. If the boot abi is successful, the display will show FF. The reference design requires you to manually install two separate metal brackets on each side of the HSF to lock it in place. This shows that at the higher resolution the graphics card is still the bottleneck.
To top it off, the board now features a much better diagnostic tool for better troubleshooting. Next up I ran Super Pi, and calculated Pi to 32 million decimal places. The reason I am running at bus, which is overclocked right from the start, is to get an even comparison of avit Rdram running at both speeds. Firstly, Serious Sam, running the Karnack abig. 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 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. With every new tth7 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.
Despite pushing the limits of my CPU, and constantly rebooting and changing settings, the board takes it all in its stride. Next up the multimedia benchmark.
Review: ABIT TH7-II – Mainboard –
Again, significantly faster than a stock PIV. A performance increase of marks, which is not bad considering only the memory bandwidth has increased. First off, I ran 3d Markevery gamer’s favourite benchmark.
The options allowed vary depending on the type of CPU that you put into the board. 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 tu7 the board.
Building on their laurels after the success they achieved with that board, they have now introduced the TH7-II, for use with socket PIV. 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. The other bios features are fairly standard, there are no memory timing options on the board, as they are not required with Rambus.
During the boot up process the two digit display with show two hexadecimal numbers, corresponding to the initialization steps the motherboard is making.
It may lack gh7 like USB2, 6 channel audio, etc, but it more than makes up for it in the stability and performance. 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 micro strips to aid stability, and the clear space around the socket.
Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to tu7. I have also benchmarked the board with two different settings, to test the performance of the Rdram when running at PC speeds. The increase here is only 2 fps, but it’s still an increase. Something else that will appeal to overclockers, is the addition of micro strips on the back of the motherboard, underneath the mosfets and capacitors which are used for the supply of current to the CPU.
