This is something that ABIT among a couple of other manufacturers have introduced recently, and to be truly honest it works flawlessly, especially together with rounded cables. For the FSB overclocking tests we used a 2. IS7 is between these two when it comes to the price and the features. Switching memory modules with a large AGP card is impracticable. With the standard settings the Canterwood-boards perform slightly better than the IS7-boards, which in itself is not anything surprising. The maximum memory voltage should be raised to a minimum of 3. Especially these cheaper boards are very interesting since the marginal is very low.

This is something the majority of consumers does not utilize. Thus it comes as no surprise that both the reference boards, based on the Canterwood chipset are faster than the IS7-board. The effect of this in FPS has of course been reviewed.

This will just confuse the already confused consumer. Not an easy choice on what card one should choose. The capacitors are in line with the plastic cage of the socket, so if your cooling solution slund within its edges, there will be no complications.
The memory timings we used to reach stability were 2. When the concept was first introduced, I was rather skeptical for a start. If we just had a little more DIMM is7-r to play with, the board would have received a Outputs for the integrated sound circuit is of course included as well. The rest of BIOS follows the usual design with a system monitoring section, a section for the integrated features and so on.
This is located right down by soound PCI slots. Switching memory modules with a large AGP card is impracticable.
Nothing which controls the choice of mainboard really, but it can be nice to be able to connect the old one button mouse to the COM-port, if you want to feel a bit nostalgic a rainy autumn evening. We are getting pretty tired of criticizing this.
In 3DMarkthings start to look like normal again.
With the standard settings the Canterwood-boards perform slightly better than the IS7-boards, which in itself is not anything surprising. The maximum memory voltage should be raised to a minimum of 3. With the IS7 series they take the whole thing one step further and again they raise the bar a bit over the competitors. Other hardware found in all test systems.
This is not the best cooler on the market, but still better than the stock cooling. For the DFI-board is looks darker though. The slanting allows for better cable management to prevent drastically reduced airflow.
The first source of irritation ks7-e the 12V connector, which many manufacturers still persist in mounting behind the CPU socket, right alongside the back plate. What more can be connected? Below, close up to the edge, the S-ATA connectors themselves are found.
Superb performance for every wallet seems to have been the motto while developing the IS7 series. MP3 encodning Fraunhofer II codec. Over to the IS7.
On to the compression tests. Soldering spots The socket is placed at the very top of the card, right beside the edge of the PCB.
There are plenty of memory ratios, 1: That is a bit low, 3. In addition, they are colour coded for easy installation. The overclocking possibilities seems to be as good as on the other boards, as you soon are to see. Overclocking gives as usual a healthy increase of both 3DMark points and an increase to the memory bandwhidth.
