It looks like that the company stepped back from the radical MAX series: The layout is not standard, but this time it’s easy to reach IDE connectors located behind the PCI slots; besides, the memory slots do not have as much stuff around as before, and nothing prevents installation of full-size PCI cards.

ABIT IC7 – PE/P Motherboard Roundup June – Part 1: way Shootout

Over the past few months it worsened. Mushkin calls this board problematic and attributes the memory problems to forced implementation of PAT that is not normally present in I may try getting it replaced by NewEgg but I don’t suppose it’ll help. I’ve played with memory settings for weeks, timings and voltages as well, reinstalled XPPro several times, updated BIOS, got all newest drivers and run out of ideas I have no PCI cards in this box. Video 3Digests Video cards: However, because of the penetration of IEEE in the DV camera market, the standard cannot be ignored, thus we like to see manufacturers support the spec even if Intel won’t.


Introduction Intel’s fastest and greatest Kc7 chipset or better known ablt the P has become one of the less popular commodity, simply because its performance could easily be replicated by its cheaper sibling, the Intel PE.

All in all you shouldn’t be disappointed with this sound solution unless you’re a serious audiophile. This will cause users to drop the top drive bay for the 2nd or 3rd etnernet, making the etherner of your case look quite ridiculous. I’m thinking about getting a board instead. This makes packing and unpacking easy and we like the effort ABIT put into making this process simple.

The 4-channel switching voltage regulator incorporates 8 capacitors of uF and several less capacious ones.

Although a lot of motherboard vendors could introduce a couple of cheats at the motherboard level to trick the PE to behave like the P, most of the time, these cheats do not yield exact PAT-like performance. Anyway, here’s the detailed specifications: This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp. The biggest difference is in Serial ATA support.

The board has everything for functional expansion and for good electrical support of the system in normal and overclocked conditions. So in total, you’ll be able to connect four SATA and four IDE drives to this motherboard, which equals a grand total of eight possible drives that can be activated. Needless to say that there’s a high price to pay for such a product but if it’s within your budget, we don’t see why you shouldn’t invest in one.

Thankfully this will be replaced with a quieter unit in the near future. Maybe it’s just us because we ethernst to repack every motherboard back into the box after the review. We’ve illustrated the benefit of CSA technology in previous articles, an example of which can be found here in our P chipset article. There are 2 connectors for adjustable and 3 for unadjustable connection of fans one of them is connected to a fan on the MCH’s heatsink. In the box, you’ll find: Log in Don’t have an account?

Now it won’t run more than an hour without BSOD. Package of a new austere design; Documentation: Barring some high-end users, the vast majority of users should do fine just fine with two Serial ATA connectors and the Primary and Secondary IDE connectors, especially since Serial ATA drives are not by any means being shipped in great quantities, nor do they provide a significant performance advantage over IDE drives.

So, if you’re looking for that ultimate board with the best in performance and speed, the P is truly the one you should be looking for.
