This is why the additional ATX back plate is supplied with the board. The four memory slots are positioned well away from the AGP port, so that when you have memory installed, the retaining clips do not foul on the back of the AGP card, another thoughtful piece of design. There is also a retaining clip for the AGP card, Abit motherboard TH7-RAID any LAN gamers will not find it coming loose when they are moving their boxes around.

A minor flaw is how close the clear cmos jumper is to the floppy drive connector, it can make it quite awkward to get to once the board is Abit motherboard TH7-RAID into the case. 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. These are very small strips which according to Abit increase the stability of the board Abit motherboard TH7-RAID overclocking. The area around the socket is also clear from obstructions, and will allow for a substantial heat sink to be applied.

I had no problem fitting an Alpha to it. The micro strips to aid stability, and the clear space around the socket Another good feature that has been Abit motherboard TH7-RAID 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. The manual features a comprehensive list of the error codes, and it does work. When first installing the board I didn't have one of the Rimm modules pushed in firmly enough, and the error code was displayed, allowing me to go almost straight to the problem. The options allowed vary depending on the type of CPU that you put into the board.

With an older Willamette, the vcore allowed is up to 2. This can be overcome with a modified bios that allows up to 1.

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. You should be careful Abit motherboard TH7-RAID changing the memory divider, is not all Rambus is capable of running at high fsb's. The other bios features are fairly standard, there are no memory timing options on the board, as they are not required with Rambus. The manual is well laid out, and comprehensive, covering installation of the board, bios settings, and installation of the chipset and sound drivers.

There is also a list of Abit contact details in the back should you encounter any troubles. Performance and Testing I used the Abit motherboard TH7-RAID components for testing, the cpu being one I have found that will overclock extremely well at low voltages, so is ideal for pushing this board to its limits. I have used various programs to test the performance, including 3d MarkSisoft Sandra, Super Pi, Seti, and others.

I have also benchmarked the board with two different settings, to test the performance of the Rdram when running at PC speeds. The i does not officially support this speed, that will not be implemented until the ie later on this year, but the Abit board had no trouble running at that speed, which provides some future proofing in these fast moving times. As you can clearly see, with the cpu running at mhz it is a lot faster than a PIV Abit motherboard TH7-RAID mhz.


Next up the multimedia benchmark. Again, significantly faster than a stock PIV. The reason I am running at bus, which is overclocked right from the start, is to get an even comparison of the Rdram running at both speeds.

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 Rdram is extremely fast, even when running at stock speeds, as you can see. This might look very impressive in artificial benchmarks, but how does it perform in the real world. I ran a few more tests to see if the memory bandwidth was a limiting factor. Abit motherboard TH7-RAID off, I ran 3d Markevery gamer's favourite benchmark.


Abit motherboard TH7-RAID A performance increase of marks, which is not bad considering only the memory bandwidth has increased. I ran the test five times at each speed, and each time the difference ranged between points. Next up I ran Super Pi, and calculated Pi to 32 Abit motherboard TH7-RAID decimal places. When calculating 32 million decimal places of PI, with the CPU at and memory atit was just over 2 minutes faster, showing that the increased memory bandwidth does help in real world use.


Another popular program is Seti, many overclockers are in teams, and they always want the fastest performance possible when running Seti. Now for some games testing, as not everyone uses Seti and Pi, they want to know if it will help with games performance. Firstly, Serious Sam, running the Karnack demo. Running at x in 32 bit colour, with detail set to high, the increased bandwidth translates into an extra 5 Abit motherboard TH7-RAID. Next I decided to try Quake 3, but this time using a higher resolution to see if the increased bandwidth still had an effect. This time, running at x, 32 bit colour with textures and quality on full.
