There were a couple of bulging capacitors on the motherboard but I’ve already replaced them. Cheers for the link to the patch! I believe I have the V1. I ran it with a MHz Athlon Thunderbird CPU and it easily got the Tbird up to MHz, obviously this has a lot to do with the choice of CPU, but the Abit board with all it’s tweaks offers the best possible chance of overclocking the CPU and running it successfully, Abit have been loudly touting the 3 phase power circuits built on the board whilst over manufacturers stick with a 2 phase voltage circuit design, the 3 phase power design is supposed to offer better stability under the high current loads of the latest CPU’s and especially the overclocked Tbird’s, and it also offers much better heat dissipation, throughout the boards components. I’ve got a KT7 here. One of them will fit without modification, but the second cooler doesn’t match up with the V5’s mounting holes so I had to use thermal epoxy on it.

Here’s the setup shown below. P3’s run relatively cool, so Abit kt7a not worried about this cooler in my Intel systems.


It’s worth a try at least. This is exactly why so many manufacturers are concentrating on releasing KTA based solutions. May 19, Posts: Beyond abit kt7a I would recommend abiit stronger PSU. Quite a few KTA motherboards have arrived at the AnandTech Labs, and as usual, abit kt7a will walk you through all abit kt7a them and let you know which one is the best. Last edited by KT7AGuy on ABIT and Creative use really shit electronic parts from time to time. So, I just put everything in my main computer with my brand spanking new Asus A7V, and it still doesn’t boot.

The Abit kt7a that you’re using is probably a better choice, but I could never find those for sale. Just about everyone plays games so lets see how the Abit copes with a few gaming benchmarks.

That’s why the last two row abi fins are shorter to make way for the flower shaped Abit kt7a cooler. I’m also in the process of trying to secure a Voodoo 5 AGP card. AWE64 Gold would be very appropriate. This abit kt7a the KTA chipset a very attractive option. Yep it’s a V1.
