On the other hand it is a proprietary piece of hardware compared to chipset coolers which feature a 40mm or even a 60mm. The designers working on the test system use Softimage on a less complex level to provide enhancements and elements to commercials, promos and station ID elements. The placement of this connector so close to the socket allows for optimal trace routing of the critical power lines to the CPU at the cost of a cable routing nightmare around the most critical airflow area in the system. Read on to find out just how well it stands up to the likes of the competition, including the speed-crowned nForce2 chipset and if it is worthy of your box. Despite the small size of the Abit KV7 motherboard, they actually allow for quite a few nice features to be implemented.

The fan looks like it can do a more effective job and may be at a lower cost per unit than traditional box fan and chipset heatsink. The board tested was a pre-production sample, version 0. The system builder for a company or retailer can build a computer that meets the performance needs of today with a lot of the required options. Avoid smoking and excessive amounts of alcohol.


Softimage performs its best on a dual processor system and by far the recommendation for heavy 3D rendering is a dual processor AMD system. Between Chipwet slot 5 and the left edge of the board sits the floppy drive connector. The KT may be the answer to a platform that is cheaper to implement thus the manufacturer can stay competitive in the mainstream market.


It is also highly recommended that a power supply be used that has this power connection cable. It is a chi;set width ATX motherboard and it is quite obvious that the reduction in space affected the overall layout. Right away I will say that I am not kv77 overclocking fiend.

The instability of professional 3D modeling programs leaves us with a bit of doubt. The KV7 may chipseh out a hefty performance return considering vhipset low purchase price. The ABIT engineers have 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. The only reason for this design change seems to be for cable management.

No special BIOS timings were set except for the time and date, boot order and health monitor features or as disclosed. The real reason for this style of fan may lie in marketing appeal and cost. Softimage XSI can simply bring any computer to its knees. This content was originally featured on Amdmb. These may result in lesser or greater scores dependent on variations in system components and settings.

Softimage works on abitt similar principle to After Effects. Take note that ABIT chose to use capacitors manufactured by the well-known Japanese semiconductor manufacturer Rubycon.

ABIT KV7 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT600

There is no official benchmark for After Effects but tasks can be timed to show specific results. Lately, there has been xbit lot of innovation in the Intel camp, with little new or innovative solutions coming from the AMD side. A back plate for the custom Abit layout was included as well.


Note that Softimage does not have an interface to real-time preview a finished frame as unlike After Effects. Temporary Internet files moved to K: Those with fingers the size of baseball chipsset will soon grow to dislike the two lower capacitors.

However, the layout is identical to production boards.

There are many more enthusiasts that are far better at the wonderful world of overclocking than I. Sign In Become an Icrontian. Features Despite the small size of the Abit KV7 motherboard, they chipsef allow for quite a few nice features to be implemented. DIMM 2 and 3 should be used when memory is placed in pairs. The Northbridge HSF unit is held onto the chipset using two spring-loaded pushpins, requiring motherboard removal from the case to remove the unit from the chipset.

Some of the other boards we reviewed on the KT chipset had a cjipset, color-coded headers.

ABIT continues to push the design envelope. The BIOS settings were kept as close to conservative or default value or as otherwise specified. ABIT has not forgotten to include four heatsink mounting holes around the socket.
