I always like seeing a manufacturer use components which have a good reputation for quality on their products. This is definitely the best overclocking nForce 2 motherboard.

Socket A motherboards supported a broad number of chipset designs that included the VIA KT and Nvidia nForce Ultra series, both popular choices with motherboard manufacturers. Front Side Bus Overclocking Testbed.

We have not tested any other boards for the AMD platform that chopset able to do this until now. Barton core processors tempted enthusiasts with the promise of bf7 performance gains thanks to a larger MB L2 cache and the prospect of a higher MHz FSB.

Doing straight out of the box is an amazing feat in itself. I always like seeing a manufacturer use components which have a good reputation for quality on their products. ASUS has three boards in the top ten and 5.

In the Socket A era, we find the enthusiast segment to be quite different with Abit proving to be the motherboard manufacturer of choice with overclockers on HWBOT. We even popped the little cooler to check that thermal compound was indeed used.

Though it’s obviously not possible to get to 1T, we were able to go as low as 4T. However, we suggest you simply select the “Expert” option for full customization, assuming you have some experience with BIOS tweaking. Please log in or register to comment.

It was manufactured using a nm 0. For a more complete list, see the above picture.

This is a very good overclock and is the norm for all nForce2 boards tested here today. The great thing about Athlon XP processors is that they can be unlocked unlike modern-day Intel CPUsand being able to unlock a processor is a boon for computer hardware review sites such as AnandTech, as it gives us the ability to test ablt true maximum FSB a particular motherboard can handle.

Won’t you please settle this for us. The AMD Athlon XP series arrived in and was an immediate hit with chioset, offering superior performance than Intel equivalents, coupled with reasonably competitive prices. Interestingly enough, the Active to Precharge timing can be adjusted as low as 1T, and up to 15T cuipset fact.

An extra fan header is also located just above the AGP slot, a good thing if you intend to add extra cooling to a temperamental videocard.

nForce2 6-way Motherboard Roundup – December 2002

This is good news for the overclockers out there because this means the NF7-M has the potential to overclock high – or at least that is what the word on the street seems to indicate – but you never with a hundred percent certainty. About Us Employment Privacy Policy. This maximum Vcore isn’t all that great, especially if you plan on using a. You can find the submission from I. All in all, this is a common hardware monitor to have for a high-performance motherboard. Check out the submission from I.


Motherboard Memory Lane: AMD Socket A, Abit NF7-S V2.0 and AMD Athlon 2500+

Just some of the many available memory divider options include 4: Soft Menu III, don’t ya love it? For example, Vcore is adjustable in.

Avit can be altered up to 2. The general layout of the NF7-M is good, I would have preferred to have the main ATX and auxiliary power connectors elsewhere, but I understand that being close to the MOSFETs provides the cleanest voltage signals to the motherboard powersupply circuit.

High-End Workstation Performance continued We could run any test and the NF7-S passed all of them even running Prime 95 overnight. Knowing how well those other two iterations of the NF7 platform have performed, I’m sure you’ll agree we have some high expectations about what this board will be able to do, so let’s get started! The nForce Ultra was most popular with overclockers due to its ability reach higher clock speeds with independent CPU, memory and AGP overclocking.

It supported a range of K7 architecture AMD processors and core designs that spanned the period from to
