Thankfully, you can still install and remove system memory, even if a larger graphics card is placed in the 4x AGP slot. Read on to find out. You’ll either love it or hate it. On the one hand it’s a fully-fledged enthusiasts’ motherboard, but it also seems to cater for the audiophiles out there with 6-channel sound support, as well as optical inputs and outputs. A strange but nice combination. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Let’s not beat about the bush.

Instead of throwing all sorts of integrated peripherals on the board, Abit has taken a more minimalist approach with the BH7 and focused on component quality and overclocking features. What was the best tech product of ? Motherboards Previous page Next page.

Abit’s BH7 motherboard

However, Abit has taken things on step further on the BH7 by using Rubycon capacitors exclusively here. It represents problems for those with shorter 4-pin leads. Since the PE’s October release, Intel has introduced with Granite Bay and Canterwood, but those chipsets have been aimed at high-end workstations and, in the case of Canterwood, high-end enthusiast desktops.


Hardcore enthusiasts tend to be picky about such things, anyway. Ait Previous page Next page.

It does appear that way. The BH6 was an overclocker’s dream in its day, and even today, many original BH6s are purring happily along, a testament to board’s robust BX chipset and unwavering stability.

We generally eschew cheaper integrated components, especially when it comes to features like audio and RAID. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Let’s not beat about the bush. There is no RAID function on this performance-based motherboard. The PE is bhh7 much cheaper solution for motherboard manufacturers, making it a good choice for the BH7. Perfect for those of you who can make use of bbh7 digital transfer connection.

I also think it gives the motherboard a cleaner look once the cables are installed. Socket based Intel Pentium 4 processors. Both ports are clearly marked out.

As usual, the CPU retention bracket is littered with capacitors. The only jumper on this board is the standard clear CMOS. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. On a more serio I wouldn’t expect to see these capacitors causing the problems some cheap caps have caused some users recently. The BH7 seems like a strange animal. However, to my ear, the board’s audio quality through its analog output ports doesn’t come close to the fidelity of today’s discrete audio cards.


Dell returns to the stock market after six years. Read on to find out. Abit isn’t the first motherboard maker to use Rubycon capacitors; manufacturers like Asus have been using them selectively on some of their high-end boards.

Lately, motherboards that integrate every peripheral device known to man have been all the rage. No Interruptions Day Shortbread.
