In advanced Chipset features, the memory timing was set to Turbo, Interleave was set to 4 way and CAS latency set to 2, these are the main options for performance setting, they only work with decent quality branded memory, such as Crucial or Mushkin, with cheaper spec memory you may not be able to turn on all the performance settings and still maintain stability.
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 must say I like Abit motherboards a lot, just about every motherboard I’ve had in the past few years, has been an Abit, I’ve gone from the BH6 through to the BE6 and now on with the KT7 series and they’ve all performed, and kept of performing consistently over the years.
While very few video cards use this slot it would be nice to see it there when the cards come out using this slot possibly some GF3 video cards. Supports up to 1.
Realistically, manufacturers will also have to make sure that their board design can work at the increased FSB. Abit where among the first to fit a Fan on the Northbridge chipset, they set the trend, now heatsink and fans are common on nearly every recent motherboard Northbridge controller. 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.
This presents problems when trying to install large heatsinks such as orb coolers or some of the larger Alpha coolers such as the PEP66T. When was the last time you upgraded your PC? I do like this board a lot though, it offers overclockers all the 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.

ABIT KT7A RAID
Provided that they already have a solid KT motherboard design, producing a KTA solution often requires little more than a few design tweaks and a drop in of the pin-compatible A North Bridge.
ABIT KT7A-RAID Socket-A KT133A ATX
Memory performance and bandwidth make quite a large difference to the whole computer’s performance and benchmark results. If you wait for the picture above to load you will see the memory benchmarks are taken at the various different settings and finally with the FSB maxed out at MHZ with all the various options in the Abit BIOS turned on for extra memory performance. In another trend setting move Abit where among the first to include Jumperless setup, all the functions of the motherboard are available within the SoftMenu in the BIOS, this makes setting up the Abit motherboards as painless and easy as possible, fumbling about for tiny jumpers and poring over board diagram layouts trying to find hidden jumper JP23 has become a thing of the past.
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.
You can find products similar to this one for sale below. 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.
RAID 1 mirroring mode for data security 5. Quite a few KTA motherboards have arrived at the AnandTech Labs, and as usual, we will walk you through all of them and let you know which one is the best. Log in Don’t have an account?
Most of the other well known coolers such as the Global Win FOP38, Vantech super cooler fit perfectly on this board as does most water coolers so its still a very good boards despite this slight space problem.
