ABIT has been trying to separate themselves from other motherboard manufacturers as much as possible lately. Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as true benchmarks today, they remain an important performance metric for most overclockers. We have not tested any other boards for the AMD platform that were able to do this until now. What was the best tech product of ? It supported a range of K7 architecture AMD processors and core designs that spanned the period from to With five bit PCI slots you won’t have any problems adding in future expansion cards if desired either.

ABIT NF7-M (NVIDIA nForce2) Mainboard
This is good news for the overclockers out there because this means the NF7-M has the potential to overclock high – or at least that is what the word on the street seems to indicate – but you never with a hundred percent certainty.
An extra fan header is also located just above the AGP slot, a good thing if you intend to add extra cooling to a temperamental videocard.
Doing straight out of the box is an amazing feat in itself. Whilst it matched the sbit VIA solution on a performance basis, and beat it in the technological and feature stakes, it’s relatively high price ensured that VIA could just hold on to their Socket A mantle as 1 chipset maker. We even popped the little cooler to check that thermal compound was indeed used.
ABIT NF7 Mainboard
Nvidiq has three boards in the top ten and 5. The nForce Ultra was most popular with overclockers due to its ability reach higher clock speeds with independent CPU, memory and AGP overclocking.
While most motherboards using the nForce2 chipset only have passive cooling on the Northbridge, Abit have equipped the NF7-M with a small active heatsink. If one were to buy a mid to high end motherboard or AMD “whitebox” system these days, they would be well advised to only seriously consider options which have ‘nVIDIA nForce2 inside. Ships with the following: Taking advantage of almost everything that the nForce2 has to offer, and adding their legendary Softmenu III BIOS and general stability, it should be a sterling performer.
I always like seeing a manufacturer use abti which have a good reputation for quality on their products. He managed a reference clock of The company has two boards in the top ten and 4.
Motherboard Memory Lane: AMD Socket A, Abit NF7-S V2.0 and AMD Athlon 2500+
It indicates they care about the level of quality of agit product and considering the recent failure rates surrounding some low ESR capacitors, this is an important area for the longevity of the board.

The current advantage of Serillel is that you can add an additional IDE drive to your system for a total of five instead of four. ABIT has been trying to separate themselves from other motherboard manufacturers as much as possible lately.
Review: ABIT NF7-S nForce2 – Mainboard –
Soft Menu III, don’t ya love it? Log in Don’t have an account? CPU Frequency Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as true benchmarks today, they remain an important performance metric for most overclockers. In the Socket A era, we find the enthusiast segment to be quite different with Abit proving to be the motherboard manufacturer of nvdiia with overclockers on HWBOT.
abitt Today we continue our Mother Memory Lane series, shifting our focus back to the beginning of the last decade, to a time when AMD had the upper hand against Intel in terms of raw performance. The general layout of the NF7-M is good, I would have preferred to have the main ATX and auxiliary power connectors elsewhere, but I understand that being close to the MOSFETs provides the cleanest voltage signals to the motherboard powersupply circuit.
Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as true benchmarks today, they remain an important performance metric for most overclockers. This goal couldn’t be better exemplified than by their Serillel converter technology. NVIDIA, the behemoth graphics card firm, last year ventured into the Socket A environment with a technological tour-de-force in their original nForce motherboard.
You can find the submission from I. It looks formidable on paper. Their signature twinbank memory controllers are back, seemingly feed on silicon steroids in the interim months. Nvidia’s competition has been scrambling to catch up, and even newer chipsets like VIA’s KTA don’t appear to have enough muster when zbit comes to the benchmarks or feature lists.
