The BIOS settings were kept as close to conservative or default value or as otherwise specified. Users can manipulate objects in a choice of views from wire frame mode to simulated real-time shading mode. There are also voltage regulators of the AGP bus 2 x uF and of the memory 1x uF and several less capcious ones. Floppy Port supports up to 2. No wasted space for components that didn’t get included in the final design. We believe the reason for this is one of cost.

The only reason for this design change seems to be for cable management. Three DIMM sockets are worth noting. Splitting hairs; this could be called dead heat.

ABIT KV7 Motherboard Review

The board measures x mm “narrow ATX”, 6 fastening screws, the front edge may hang loose without additional fastening. SpecviewPerf still grounds itself in the manipulation of 3D graphics on a business application level rather than on a gaming performance level. The four pin power connection is tucked tightly between capacitors and abjt but how often is a user connecting and disconnection power.

The header is placed further away from the socket than in most motherboard designs. With smaller vk7 comes design challenges. On the one hand it is larger and therefore looks like it does a more effective cooling job.

Technologies The board supports several proprietary technologies with similar functionality which allow for fine configuring and overclocking of the system, its monitoring and protection of components from damages.


In other words the BIOS settings were standard as far as anyone can set the time and date, ensure the ram is 2 or 4 way interleave and at CAS 2 and AGP is chosen as the first boot video card 8x. Quake III high quality.

ABIT KV7 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT600

A faster processor will result in the faster render. Products should fulfill your needs, have acceptable longevity, and as a pleasant side effect…exceed your expectations.

We really liked the broad range.

In all other respects, this is usual but pretty fast solution. The standard width is approximately 9.

The most impressive thing about this board is its widest range of BIOS settings. The first oddity is the placement of the heatsink fan header.

ABIT KV7 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT Overview – CNET

The BIOS settings were kept as close to conservative or default value or as otherwise specified. The green jumpers control front audio connections. The benchmark tests showed a failure to complete one test in Specview Perf and Softimage failed to complete a frame render.

When memory is used in pairs installed into DIMM 1 and 2 the board was prone to desktop crashes. Unfortunately the Kv77 would not run Softimage 2.

DIMM 2 and 3 should be used when memory is placed in pairs. The KT may be the answer to a platform that is cheaper to implement thus the manufacturer can stay competitive in the mainstream market.


While in render mode the two test programs virtually bypass ram and GPU. The before and after:. Rarely are com ports used today and cutting one out may have saved a few more pennies. This board could be ideal for smaller PC cases and the KV7 is one to keep an eye on providing specific stability issues can be worked out. Many users in ABIT Forums have recommended this additional power connector be used to provide for more operational stability. Video 3Digests Video cards: Stability is an issue.

This was the first time Softimage failed to function on a motherboard review sample though.

These improvements may be more of a benefit to the manufacturer than the enthusiast as many are discovering. What you need it for and how it fits those needs changes with each individual. In the end, we still see no reason for ABIT to continually use abjt type of location on their desktop motherboards.
