ABIT NF7-M nForce2 IGP Motherboard Review –
I always like seeing a manufacturer use components which have a good reputation for quality on their products. Log in Don’t have an account? 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.
Onboard Serial ATA, in our opinion, is a nice perk, but nothing more.
Beginners Guides Cases and Access. ABIT has been trying to separate themselves from other motherboard manufacturers as much as possible lately.
High-End Workstation Performance continued Nvidia’s competition has been scrambling to catch up, betwork even newer chipsets like VIA’s KTA don’t appear to have enough muster when it comes to the benchmarks or feature lists. It indicates they motherboaard about the level of quality of their product and considering the recent failure rates surrounding some low ESR capacitors, this is an important area for the longevity of the board. 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 bf7 the word on mptherboard street seems to indicate – but you never with a hundred percent certainty.
Nothing exciting to note here, as this is pretty standard among nForce2 motherboards. In only half a year, nVIDIA have dethroned the previous champion chipsets from VIA and have created quite a reputation for themselves in the stable high performance chipset arena. Therefore, the NF7-S supports no more than four IDE drives total, which really shouldn’t be an issue with the vast majority of users and yes, even power users.
Ships with the following: Something I was extremely happy to see was that the NF7-M was only using Rubycon capacitors, nothing else. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. Motherbboard current advantage of Serillel is that you can add an additional IDE drive to your system for a total of five instead of four.
Here you’ll be able to add a maximum of four USB 2. This seems nice, but remember that there will be some performance loss because of the Parallel to Serial conversion; on paper the performance loss shouldn’t be too great but we’ll be investigating that in the coming weeks.
ABIT NF7 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – nForce2 SPP
The motherboard is very well labelled, if you do not happen to know what a header does just look closely on the PCB and you’ll find a description. Soft Menu III, don’t ya love it?

Besides the two rear USB 2. With five bit PCI slots you won’t have any problems adding in future expansion cards if desired either. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign mothegboard to comment.
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! If you decide to upgrade out of vanity, or necessity, to a larger active Northbridge heatsink you’ll appreciate the fact that ABit have placed the fan header just a few millimeters up on the board.
If one were to buy a mid to high end motherboard or AMD “whitebox” system these days, they would be well advised to only seriously consider options which have ‘nVIDIA nForce2 inside. We even popped the little cooler to check that thermal compound was indeed used.
This goal couldn’t be better exemplified than by their Serillel converter technology.
