Motherboard Specifications. The biggest difference is in Serial ATA support. Barring some high-end users, the vast majority of users should do fine just fine with two Serial ATA connectors and the Primary and Secondary IDE connectors, especially since Serial ATA drives are not by any means being shipped in great quantities, nor do they provide a significant performance advantage over IDE drives. In fact the IC7 lacks onboard Ethernet altogether. This is one of the more glaring losses, as there are more and more users connecting to broadband services by the second. Though there is a bit of performance degradation, the difference is minute.

You get the same bundle minus the Serillel 2 adapter of course and most importantly the IC7 keeps the same excellent BIOS options for overclocking and performance tweaking. This will cause users to drop the top drive bay for the 2nd or 3rd bay, making the front of your case look quite ridiculous. As we mentioned before, ABIT's P series of boards comes with a very loud North Bridge fan, which is certainly an annoyance if you desire a silent system.
Thankfully this will be replaced with a quieter unit in the near future. Final Words. Bus Speeds. Core Voltages Supported. Memory Slots. Expansion Slots. Onboard USB 2. Eight USB 2. Onboard LAN.

In the begining it like once a week maybe.
I wasn't concerned, bad driver I thought. Now it won't run more than an hour without BSOD. I've played with memory settings for weeks, timings and voltages as well, reinstalled XPPro several times, updated BIOS, got all newest drivers and run out of ideas I have no PCI cards in this box.

Abit IC7-G Motherboard
Introduction Intel's fastest and greatest Canterwood chipset or better known as the P has become one of the less popular commodity, simply because its performance could easily be replicated by its cheaper sibling, the Intel PE. Although a lot of motherboard vendors could introduce a couple of cheats at the motherboard level to trick the PE to behave like the P, most of the time, these cheats do not yield exact PAT-like performance. In addition, not all PE boards have that kind of cheats in place as well, so let's not be taken in by any of their marketing claims. So, if you're looking for that ultimate board with the best in performance and speed, the P is truly the one you should be looking for. The PAT Performance Acceleration Technology feature built into the chipset helps reduce memory latencies which subsequently helps boost the speed of the system by a significant margin. Needless to say that there's a high price to pay for such a product but if it's within your budget, we don't see why you shouldn't invest in one.

Thus far, Abit has shied away from opulent bundles. Will gamers, enthusiasts, and workstation users find value in the IC7-G beyond its relatively barren bundle? The layout For a moment, Abit had a great thing going with the orange color scheme of its BH7 motherboard. The reddish-orange board color was bold, attractive, and surprisingly unique among a landscape of multicolored motherboards. Unfortunately, Abit has abandoned the reddish-orange dye for the IC7-G and gone with a rather hideous shade of brown. Dressing up a high-end Canterwood board in brown and turquoise is about as wrong as applying the same color scheme to a Porsche. For more details on the chipset code-named Canterwood, see our review of the P.
