The most important result is what the benchmarks showed what could not be run; mainly one of the tests in Specview Perf and Softimage. The backplane design is efficient. Quake III high quality. Floppy Port supports up to 2. To All Other human beings: Icrontic — Home of the Big Beef Burrito since , fool. The benchmark tests showed a failure to complete one test in Specview Perf and Softimage failed to complete a frame render.

The design feature did help with cable management by laying the cables flat against the back side of the PC case. Bios was optimized for system but not tweaked for any performance settings requiring specialized knowledge of overclocking. Void where prohibited by law. Note that Softimage does not have an interface to real-time preview a finished frame as unlike After Effects. It is nestled between four capacitors making for a tight squeeze to push the video card lifter.

Sign In Become an Icrontian. Well, this is a more advanced version among two based on the same PCB: The only reason for this design change seems to be for cable management. It’s not easy to reach some jumpers when the board is already installed. There are several ratings categories that are used and all may not be applicable to every product.

This will reduce any possible cable collision and case clutter, making for a much more neat and organized computer case. Package of the standard design; Documentation: No wonder that there’re no brackets with audio-outs supplied with the board as all necessary connectors are already integrated.


The Zalman ahit covered a portion of the power header and that meant connecting power prior to installing the heatsink.

The designers working on the test system use Softimage on a less complex level to provide enhancements and elements to commercials, promos and station ID elements. The most impressive thing about this board is its widest range of BIOS settings. System monitoring abitt supported by Winbond WHF chip.

While in render mode the two test programs virtually bypass ram and GPU. In order to look at a finished frame a user must render the frame to disk which bypasses the GPU.

The video card lifter is a problem. The power trunk comes from the PSU and usually loops towards the front of the case then back to the board. Technologies Abut board supports several proprietary technologies with similar functionality which allow for fine kb7 and overclocking of the system, its monitoring and protection of components from damages. No special BIOS timings were set except for the time and date, boot order and health monitor features or as disclosed. In other words the BIOS settings were standard as far as anyone can set the time and date, ensure the ram is 2 or agit way interleave and at CAS 2 and AGP is chosen as the first boot video card 8x.


On the other hand it is a proprietary piece of hardware compared to chipset coolers which feature a 40mm or even a 60mm. How easy that is to achieve and with what flexibility will determine what potential true masters will have.

The before and after:. The BIOS settings were kept as close to conservative or default value or as otherwise specified.

This board could be ideal for smaller PC cases and the KV7 is one to keep an eye kv providing specific stability issues can be worked out. This location is becoming more and more common, thankfully.

One of the less important, but still notable, layout mismanagements of the KV7 is the location of the ATX connector. Note the way the floppy cable crosses over the PCI slots. The instability ablt professional 3D modeling programs leaves us with a bit of doubt.

Rendering, or the task of building and compiling frames, is mainly CPU intensive and After Effects generally bypasses the video card and relies solely on the processor for speed. The green jumpers control front audio connections. In order to give an initial impression I try to max out what I can do within a few minutes of pushing the product.
