Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone. Is Topre Realforce the Realthing? Using the MadOnion online result browser raod gather scores for a 1. Lastly on my list of layout niggles is the ATX connector being at 90 degrees to the top horizontal edge.

So all in all, a decent layout with tiny niggles that may not affect everyone, depending on case and device placement.

Overclocking is mg7 and there are plenty of tweaks to keep the enthusiast happy until KTA and NForce hit. Placement of the IDE connectors so low on the board is also a poor feature.

Has the wait been worth it? Looking at the EV6 bus like this, let us see just how well the AMD seventh generation platform has scaled.

So in pairing the with the B Southbridge, the motherboard makers are able to deliver a performance and stable DDR solution to kf7 market.

ABIT KG7-RAID – Socket-A AMD Motherboard Roundup: Farewell to a Beauty

The Athlon MP helps with the rzid benchmarks in Sandra, especially in the ALU test the first numberwith a significantly higher score than the equivalent Thunderbird core Athlon at identical speeds with a test 1. You really do have a restricted area around that south socket edge. This board is no exception. It posts a good score, edging up on the 1.


So how does it perform when overclocked? This question is for testing whether you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. The MP with its data prefetch unit and other core enhancements when compared to Thunderbird is able to show a good turn of speed, even at stock speed.

Provisional thumbs up to Abit on this one, as long as they solve the boot issues! It certainly does 1. Excellent stuff from the motherboard and raidd to its class peers.

For me at least, on this board, it means an extra twist of the cable and obscures the 2 fan header to the right of the connector. A minor issue, but one not present on the IWill.


Linux and the Abit KG7-RAID motherboard

I have a few minor niggles with component placement on the board however. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. Having it all in the BIOS is a major bonus with the power to tweak almost all aspects of the system at your fingertips.

They are a good match. So, what about arid KG7-RAID as a whole, taking into consideration features, layout, initial performance out of the rxid and subsequent performance when overclocked and tweaked? This actually contradicts the past where ABIT has usually been among the first to use a new chipset. Is it overclockable at all?

Farewell to a Beauty by Mike Andrawes on November 3, 4: It runs at or MHz depending on the front side bus frequency or In this case, the RAID connectors for the HPT are the culprits with the floppy connector the worst, being the lowest down and also at 90 degrees.
