This is still an area where few boards are available, with only competition from MSI, Asus, Gigabyte and Intel with its reference board. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. This can be overcome with a modified bios that allows up to 1. I had no problem fitting an Alpha to it. Things can get a little tight around the IDE ports.

Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! 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.

Abit’s TH7II-RAID motherboard – The Tech Report – Page 1

Abit has always been the overclocker’s choice, as they implement numerous features that other manufacturers do not, such as the very easy to use SoftMenu III system. Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.

I ran the test five times at each speed, and each time the difference ranged between points. The manual features a comprehensive list of the error codes, and it does work. Next Abih decided to try Quake 3, but this time using a higher resolution to see if the increased bandwidth still had an effect. This might look very impressive in artificial benchmarks, but how does it perform in the real world.

Despite pushing the limits of my CPU, and constantly rebooting and changing settings, the board takes it all in its stride. By reading this site you agree to our cookie policy.


Abit TH7II(-Raid) Voltmods

The micro strips to aid stability, and the clear space around the socket Another good feature that has been implemented is the use of a diagnostic display, which can show error codes and allow quick th7ik easy diagnosis of any problems that might occur when installing the board. Next up the multimedia benchmark. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile.

The area around the socket is also clear from obstructions, and will allow for a substantial heat sink to be applied. You should be careful about changing the memory divider, is not all Rambus is capable of running at high fsb’s.

Again, significantly faster than a stock PIV. Fortunately, having all the IDE ports at the top of the board allows cables to reach the top drive bays of full-tower cases easily.


As you can clearly see, with the cpu running at mhz it is a lot faster than a PIV at mhz. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic.

On a more serio The choice of boards with the i chipset is quite limited, as it generally costs more than an equivalent board with the i chipset. 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.

Performance and Testing I used the following 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.


Board Features The TH7-II is a well specified board, and comes supplied with everything you tn7ii need to get it up and running. Another popular program is Seti, many overclockers are in teams, and they always want the fastest performance possible when running Ht7ii.

The Rambus options are for the divider, which can be set at MHz for a 3x th7iii, MHz for a 4x divider, or set to Auto. It has a very thii feature set, and if required, can be purchased with the Highpoint onboard raid controller.

Abit has a couple of extra goodies down there that I’ll explain in a minute. I used the following components for testing, the cpu being one I have found that will overclock extremely well at low voltages, zbit is ideal for pushing this board to its limits. The socket area is clear of obstacles for even the biggest heat sinks.

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 With an older Willamette, the vcore allowed is up to 2. I can’t imagine any heat sink having problems fitting abi the expansive area Abit has left open.
