Abit KG7-RAID Motherboard ReviewFormer staff writer -
I highly recommend this board, and would recommend this board to anyone seeking for a high performance, highly overclockable, DDR motherboard. The bios offers tons of tweaks you can apply, surf on over to Paul's KG7 FAQ, to get more details on all of the tweaks you can do with this bios.
About the only thing I didn't like about the motherboard was the capacitors that are around the CPU socket.
On my KT7A-RAID and KT7-RAID there isn't a capacitor right infront of the heatsink clip, so there was only 4 capacitors on it, when the KG7-RAID has 5. This makes it alot harder to install heatsink, because of the capacitor being in the way of the heatsink clip. On the other hand, there tons of stuff I love about this motherboard! Like, four memory banks for DDR, onboard RAID, the best overclockers BIOS, and I love the layout of the board. Check out how neat you can make your IDE cables:
Because of where the RAID IDE sockets are and the Floppy socket, you can run your IDE/floppy cables under the motherboard or motherboard tray, then on up to your IDE devices.
- Highly tweakable BIOS
- AMD 761 chipset! (DDR)
- Very stable and fast
- On-board RAID
- Supports up to 4GB of memory
- Tall capacitors around CPU socket in the way
- Kinda expensive, but worth every penny
