The standard width is approximately 9. Individual performance will vary with any particular or specific timings or tweaks enabled by you. Three DIMM sockets are worth noting. The truth is that most consumers, especially system builders, do not buy the higher priced enthusiast motherboards due to cost factors. The power trunk comes from the PSU and usually loops towards the front of the case then back to the board. There are also voltage regulators of the AGP bus 2 x uF and of the memory 1x uF and several less capcious ones. What you need it for and how it fits those needs changes with each individual.

The power trunk comes from the PSU and usually loops towards the front of the case then back to the board. This is true for one module but when two are used there were stability problems. ABIT continues to push the design envelope. The ABIT engineers xbit done a very good job considering the reduced width but the awkward placement of the floppy and power connectors take away from the overall score.

Softimage performs its best on a dual processor system and by far the recommendation for abig 3D rendering is a dual processor AMD system.

The FDD connector is on the board’s left edge, and its cable may worsen free air circulation and be an obstacle when handling connectors on the PCB.

The good news is that larger heatsinks can be mounted on the KV7 as evident by the humongous Zalman heatsink. Softimage works on somewhat similar principle to After Effects. Unfortunately the KV7 k7v not run Softimage 2.


Rendering, or the task of building and compiling frames, is mainly CPU intensive and After Effects generally bypasses the video card and relies solely on the processor for speed.

In all other respects, this is usual but pretty fast solution.

ABIT KV7 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT600

EIDE 1 and 2 lay flat against the motherboard instead of perpendicular. We feel that the engineers had to place the headers end to end at the side of the board to solve space issues then laid them flat to provide a marketable reason.

Those with fingers the size of baseball mitts will soon grow to dislike the two lower capacitors. These improvements may be more of a benefit to the manufacturer than the enthusiast as many are discovering.

The main power connector is tucked under the socket area very close to the heatsink. Adobe After Effects 5. How easy that is to achieve and with what flexibility will determine what potential true masters will have.

What this means is that you will be unable to install optical drives in the abbit drive bay of your computer case and possibly the second drive bay as well.

Abit KV7 Manuals

Write a comment below. The ATX connector is placed on the left-hand side of the motherboard, just below the lower left abir of the CPU socket.

We really liked the broad range. No animals, especially my cat, were harmed in the making of these benchmarks. DIMM 2 and 3 should be used when memory is placed in pairs.


ABIT KV7 (VIA KT) Mainboard

We made it harder to win awards as every product cannot win the race even if it places well. It is a tight space. The benchmark tests showed a failure to complete one test in Specview Perf and Softimage failed to k7 a frame render. With smaller spaces abot design challenges. In order to give an initial impression I try to max out what I can do within a few minutes of pushing the product.

Products should fulfill your needs, have acceptable longevity, and as a pleasant side effect…exceed your expectations. Adobe After Effects is a tool to produce motion graphics and visual effects for film, video, multimedia and the web. The time taken to render frames basically shows how fast the processor is working on the kc7 task. It is primarily a 2D application using imported graphics or digital footage or self generated effects.

The KV7 is only really flawed by the power and floppy connector placement and ABIT engineers have done a commendable job packing a lot of features onto an ATX motherboard that is 2. Right now David has only tossed a couple of rocks and they fall a bit short…but not much. No wasted space for components that didn’t get included in the final design.
