Be cautious when mounting 5. Of course dual channel memory needs 2 sticks of the same memory paired in 2 DIMMs, but there really isn’t much difference between single channel and dual channel memory performance on a nForce2 Ultra motherboard. I don’t recall seeing this feature on an ABIT motherboard before.

The inclusion of 3 manuals is a great addition. This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp. They can be handy for troubleshooting booting problems, but I found the two most common error codes I received during overclocking testing were not listed in the manual.

There’s been a lot of talk about a cut trace on the back of early AN7 samples. Inside the package, you’ll find the following items: Though a lot of attention has shifted to AMD’s current bit technology, a large part of users are still very comfortable with abjt Athlon XP in particular those based on the Barton core which comes with a KB L2 cache. Including the one powering the NorthBridge fan there are 5 fan connectors in total, up from 3 on the NF7-S.

Dell returns to the stock market after six years. Downloads Mobo ID Tools. Tech specs First off, let’s take a look at the feature set of the AN7, written down in, ummm, blue and white.

As such, abig Socket-A form factor will continue to live on until AMD decides to pull the plug on the aged K7 technology – which is still going pretty strong even by today’s demanding compute intensive environment. ABIT seem to have changed the power-regulation components on the AN7, but I am unfortunately not in a position to be testing super-high core voltage due to the cooling I have available. The CMOS battery is mounted flat against the board to lessen the risk of shipping damage as we’ve seen previously.

I asked ABIT for their explanation of this cut – the ahit was: There is protective film covering the 2 sides aan7 the CPU holder. There are two IDE channels on the motherboard. Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news.

We know this motherboard is nothing new, but we thought it would be good for the sake of the interest of those considering this board. This is of no major significance, but I’ve heard a few abti from people about putting the power connectors in this area at all.

Big news, no news, and future news. Neutronbeam Besides money, let us know Seth what WE can do to help out–there’s a lot of sma Note that the NorthBridge cooler is on a 3-pin connector now, which means it can be monitored abkt have its speed controlled by the BIOS or software.


Arpanet Designer Larry Roberts Dies at Thus the need for more than 6 PCI slots is alleviated, since most of the possibly needed accessories are included. In a small tower this can make installing or removing a CPU cooler which attaches to the socket lugs very fiddly.

In a interesting twist of fate, Abit turned the IDE connectors parallel to the board instead of facing up from the board. The location of capacitors near the socket will also annoy people who ran into problems with the NF7-S, as we did in our WaterChill reviewas they have not been moved or replaced by shorter components.

Other highlights include the huge selection of FSB: A single small nylon zip-tie can be used for this purpose and clears up that whole area. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! Steam names the best-selling games of I wasn’t too keen on this idea at first, but while using the AN7 I’ve become a fan of this location. The orientation of the large ATX power plug has changed from horizontal to vertical.

The AN7 you have was the first lot of engineering samples.
