Although, we are disappointed that they still persists with the not so neat flatcables. Back Panel Connectors Layout Diagram is7-e2 Thus it comes as no surprise that both the reference boards, based on the Canterwood chipset are faster than the IS7-board. Even in MP3-encoding the brute force of Processor power and memorybandwidth is what is important for performance but this time something very inexpected happens. In 3DMark , things start to look like normal again. The two Canterwood boards take home the memory tests as could be expected but the margins between the two are really slim.

These stability related problems were unfortunately present on both IS7-boards in the beginning. Beefy water blocks that mount without the plastic cage can possibly cause troubles, but users that utilize such a cooling are often knowledgeable enough to correct the problem. Install Intel Chipset Software Utility Although, we are disappointed that they still persists with the not so neat flatcables.
ABIT never stops to surprise. We are getting pretty tired of criticizing this. There are a lot of S-ATA-ports, 4 to be exact. Even the IC7-G has this ability so of course we tested this board as well.
Hardware Setup 4. Front Panel Audio Connection Header This header provides the connection to audio connector at front panel Advanced Bios Features Finally, the AGP voltage can be raised to 1.
Install Audio Driver Switching memory modules with a large AGP card is auddio.
Load Optimized Defaults To connect or disconnect the connector is thus a messy business, not the least in a well-filled chassis. Shame on you who have such a board and run it at stock clock. As a conclusion we can say: It is not all that much faster though, at least not compared to the IC7-G. Is7- is within very small margins though. Back Panel Connectors Many of the springdale based boards on the market have trouble with aggressive memory settings.

The northbridge has been smeared with generic thermal compound and the true enthusiast better remove the goo and spread on some Arctic Silver or similar instead. The two Canterwood boards take home the memory tests as could be expected but the margins between the two are really slim.
Hardware Setup Power off the computer and unplug the AC power cord before installing or removing memory modules. K-2 Appendix K 4. The conclusion is, perfect accessibility and a bit high price. Once again the differences between boards of the same chipset are very small. This FlashMenu screen appears.

H-2 Appendix H 5. Differences in this effective frequency can tilt the test scores a tad since a variance in the end effects the actual speed of the whole process. Pc Health Status Aibt of you have probably already read countless of reviews of these boards by now since, as audik mentioned, are a little late out with our review, but we hope that we can make a handful of you a little more informed.
E-2 Appendix E 6. Nevertheless, the final mark is tremendously high; the card is, after all, very easy to handle.
