ABIT hasn’t added very much to this motherboard at all.

All hail the Great Capacitor Brand Finder. Users browsing this forum: For such high power draw and TDP, I would expect better. Though, companies building motherboards based on this chipset have only put in very basic overclocking features, which have let the sale of PT motherboard go right down in favour of Intel PE. This was one of the eras where AMD was well and truly in the lead, especially for gaming. The VIA P4 boards were kind of weird. I’ve really got too many old PCs anyway.

ABIT has put a rather liberal package together with the VT7 motherboard, nothing too fancy but just enough to get you going. Right after I made my post, he’s suddenly disassembled the system and is now parting it out: This in all will get you fully running with the VT7 without having to buy any additional cables.

Is this worth building? While we have seen the performance score up as evenly as the Intel PE chipset, it has lacked some initiative from the hardware developer’s side – we are talking about overclocking. It should be fairly stable and trouble free. I would be chioset to know how the PT performs, what quirks it might have, and any benefits it might provide regarding backward compatibility.

You’ll likely need them. If you are going to chipsset any i or i motherboard should perform more or less the same, look for one with good VRM circuits. Previous Page Next Page.

I’m really not interested in building a P4. You can find products similar to this one for sale below. This is a must have for motherboards of this era to have even the basic Ethernet support.
