Abit KX7-333R KT333 Motherboard Review

You’ve got 4 memory slots, which to start with looks like a good feature but when you consider that for use of all 4 slots the board only supports Registered PC, it looks a little less inviting. Something others and I have found with the board though is that the system ht probe is very inaccurate. The layout is again almost identical to the KX so I won’t explain it all again, but there are a few important differences. Originally posted by ttimoney: Not a major complaint, but something to watch out for when fitting the board.

Kz7 least the feature is there for those who need it. The CPU socket itself is also in a great position and includes the 4 mounting holes, crucial for fitting high end water cooling gear, and high end heatsinks like my own Alpha PAL May 20, Posts: Despite entering the correct section as abi in the manual, the options were simply not there – the only option present was to disable the RAID controller.

Thanks in advance, Chris.

The IDE connectors are well placed at the edge of the board, meaning you don’t need to drape IDE cables all over the place. Click to find out more. I’ve read about unlocking the CPU, but I haven’t read how to do this.


It’s also worth noting PC is only supported in 2 slots max, as is unbuffered PC It also has the mounting holes, jpt clearance around the socket is fine for the larger heatsinks, but the positioning of the components around the holes is terrible. First was the difficulty in fitting the Alpha due to the close proximity of the components to the mounting holes, as described above.

Once it was all in the case, the problems started. Infact the only complaint about the layout is a minor one – the floppy connector is at the very bottom of the board when it could have done with being in the middle, given that most floppy drives are mounted in that area.

JohnMcboy Ars Praetorian Tribus: But, have you completely discarded the possibility that it could also be jx7 ram? Mon Sep 09, I’m doing this with a minimal setup, board, cpu, memory and video card only When I first power up the machine and it has a clear CMOS everthing is happy. Ks7 everything apart to check for shorting – there was none. Firstly the Northbridge fan is different – it’s not the standard ABIT black fan, but a much nicer looking crystal-orb like fan.

I’ll agree that it could be the board or cpu.

Howver, with that in mind, I’m not at the location of the setup now, so I can’t check to see what revision I have. It will often read well above the reported CPU temperature – this is apparently because the sensor is right next to a bunch of capacitors near the CPU which get very hot, distorting the system temperature reading. I eventually got the board up and running and installed Windows using a spare Duron Like all ABIT boards I’ve had, this board features 6 PCI slots – a very welcome addition because there are npt worries about using up all the upt, and it also allows you to place quite a few cards and still leave gaps between the graphics card and your PCI cards to ensure good airflow.

I’m hovering back and forth between which I think xk7 the culprit, so I want to get other opinions.

I’m pretty sure it’s either the board or the CPU, but I can’t figure out which based on my problems. Here’s what’s going on If it works it will post all the way through to the “no boot device”.
