Jan 15, Posts: 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. Fri Oct 12, 2: Performance doesn’t vary especially much with the new KTA boards, they all essentially use 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 and offers extra features. 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.

Via have sussed this out an now the KTA chipset is regarded as a high performance motherboard chipset.
should i risk putting an athlon xp into my abit kt7a raid v1.1?
With the KT7A rev1. Join the community here.

If you need more processor power and are afraid of what the XP might do, just get a Thunderbird instead.
Ask a question and give support. I ran it with a MHz Athlon Thunderbird CPU and it easily got the Tbird up to MHz, obviously this has a lot to do with the choice of CPU, but the Abit board with all it’s tweaks offers the best possible chance of overclocking the CPU and running it successfully, Abit have been loudly touting the 3 phase power circuits built on the board whilst over manufacturers stick with a 2 phase voltage circuit design, the 3 phase power design is supposed to gaid/kt7e better stability under the high current loads of the latest CPU’s and especially the overclocked Tbird’s, and it also offers much better heat dissipation, throughout the boards components.
RAID 0 stripping mode for boosting performance 4.
I guess I got my answer I saw something yesterday and now cannot find any information on it. When the CPU’s a bit faster and the performance delta a bit larger, I’ll upgrade.
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. I’ve heard about that problem too, and I’ve heard people ablt have had some bad luck taking the risk.
ABIT KT7A RAID
Supports up to 1. Join the community hereit only takes a minute. The fan keeps the Northbridge cooler and adds stability at the higher bus speeds offered on the newer boards. What was the best tech product of ? Otherwise I wouldn’t try it, just go for a TBird.
But it does not seem include older versions Jan 15, Posts: My first experience with Abit kit was way back in when the BH6 and Celeron A was the overclocking combination to own.
Fri Oct 12, ky7a The KT7 accommodates up to a maximum the 1. Click to find out more. I read the same thing today on Usenet alt. I should get new proc the begining of next week and then I will post the bad news. ATX form factor 2. You might want to elaborate a bit. My suggestion would be not to try it.

Phew with that little bit about RAID over lets see what it means for your computer and the all important Benchmarks. I must say I like Abit motherboards a lot, just about every motherboard I’ve had in the past few years, has kt7w an Abit, I’ve gone from the BH6 through to the K7a and now on with the KT7 series and they’ve all performed, and kept of performing consistently over the years.
Most people have the 1. I do like this board a lot though, it offers overclockers all abt 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 that the Abit KT7 series motherboards are winners in my eyes.
Jan 10, Posts: I could run a whole bunch of tests of the board, but since I just reviewed the whole OcUK bundle last week, it seems somewhat pointless so I’ll just show you the most popular Sandra benchmarks.
