Strengths: Easy RAID configuration, pinless (everything done in bios)
Weakness: CPU slot is to close to the edge of the board (hard to get heatsink off), Crashes on me when I run my XP 1800 at 133fsb (rather than 100fsb which it should do)
At first this board was wonderful, no problems, really fast. But then after a while crashes started to appear. I turn it down to 100fsb and it ran fine (but slower). After doing everything I could find out on the internet, whether on news-groups or websites, I can still not run in 133fsb. I've been playing with it for more than a month now with no success of using 133fsb. I've even used a good...

At first this board was wonderful, no problems, really fast. But then after a while crashes started to appear. I turn it down to 100fsb and it ran fine (but slower). After doing everything I could find out on the internet, whether on news-groups or websites, I can still not run in 133fsb. I've been playing with it for more than a month now with no success of using 133fsb. I've even used a good processor, etc. This board had potential, and for most people it works good, but for some reason. It just doesn't like me. Maybe I'll go for a Gigabyte motherboard.

I have owned 3 Abit boards, BE6,...
Strengths: AMD 761 chipset, 4 DDR 2100 slots, XP 2.0 capable, HPT 370 RAID, very stable fast board....good price.
Weakness: I had to flash bios for it to recognize XP cpu....not a big deal though.
I have owned 3 Abit boards, BE6, KT7A Raid, and KG7Raid...all very good boards. The KG7 has been the fastest and most stable board. I have the XP 1.7 running with 256 DDR and 2-20 gig WD HD's running striping RAID config. No complaints....keep up the good work Abit!

Built about 100 machines so far,...
Strengths: Very stable, very fast, Bios as usual the best.
Weakness: Only run two memory sticks unless you run registered ram.
Built about 100 machines so far, this is one of the best. I very much like the raid setup (I have two IBM drives,60gb's)
Bought Abit's new KR7-raid, do that next with a 1700 processor.

Other then the win2k and harddrive...
Strengths: Its fast, good BIOS as usual, supports a lot of ram and is fairly easy to set up! RAID is fast.
Weakness: For some strange reason, when i try to connect hd's to the second ide channel, the machine just reboots after 30 second when logge in to Winblows, but I hope a bios update will do the trick!
Other then the win2k and harddrive problem I really enjoy this md, the RAID connectors is a bit cumbersome to reach when using a bigtower, but in my Coolermaster cabinet it works out just fine.
Very good stability indeed.
Btw .. the Abit website is really slow, even the mirrors.
Lots of broken links etc.
