Instead, only marked soldering spots are found. There are a lot of S-ATA-ports, 4 to be exact. The Canterwood boards have greater bandwidth and therefore they surpass the other boards. In 3DMark , things start to look like normal again. Bear this in mind if you possess an extra small case. Most of you have probably already read countless of reviews of these boards by now since, as we mentioned, are a little late out with our review, but we hope that we can make a handful of you a little more informed. The overclocking possibilities seems to be as good as on the other boards, as you soon are to see.

These stability related problems were unfortunately present on both IS7-boards in the beginning. This is not the best cooler on the market, but still better than the stock cooling. The price should be at least SEK cheaper. Once again zbit differences between boards of the same chipset are very small.


What else can you say spund phenomenal ABIT. Just as we had expected. What more can be connected? If not for the users, do it for the reviewers sake at least.

Soldering spots The socket is placed at the very top of the card, right beside the edge of the PCB. Up to this point, that is. The IS7-boards linger slightly behind the two Canterwood boards but compared to each other soumd perform quite alike. We have also had time with some overclocking tests of course.


If you can survive without Firewire the cheaper IS7-E board is a better choice.

Thus it comes as no surprise that abti the reference boards, based on the Canterwood chipset are faster than the IS7-board. On to the compression tests. The rest of BIOS follows the usual design with a system monitoring section, a section for the integrated features and so on. This is something that Iw7-e among a couple of other manufacturers have introduced recently, and to be truly honest it works flawlessly, especially together with rounded cables.

We are getting pretty tired of criticizing this. It is actually rather easy to find mainboards with the same functions and features for a lower price. Apart from that the IS7-G is a star in terms of connection abilities. In Advanced chipset Features we have the possibility to configure the memory settings.

The slanting allows for better cable management to prevent drastically reduced airflow. The first source of irritation is the 12V connector, which many manufacturers still persist in mounting behind the CPU socket, right alongside the back plate.

This is something the majority of consumers does not utilize. Everything seems to be about the same in UT Nevertheless, the final mark is tremendously high; the card is, after all, very easy to handle. By activating souhd function, the performance is supposed to be drastically increased and the Sounx boards to crush the competition.


ABIT IS7-E – motherboard – ATX – Socket 478 – i865PE Series

In 3DMarkthings start to look like normal again. Over to the boards integrated features which really impresses more than the awkward accessory package.

If you feel a need for extra features you just add some money and buy a IS7-G. With the bracket we can connect up to 6 USB-units and three Firewire units. On then to the tests that like always begin with the memory tests in SiSoft Sandra We usually begin with Quake 3 so why not today? Bear this in mind if you possess an extra small case.

Switching memory modules with a large AGP card is impracticable. The accessibility is almost fabulously good though. Instead, only marked soldering spots are found.
