I’m thinking of replacing the ABIT north bridge cooler as well the V5’s heatsinks if I successfully obtain one with one of these after-market northbridge coolers from eBay: Thanks and glad it is working now. I hope they deliver monday. The revision of your board should be indicated on the sticker with the barcode in front of PCI slots 4 and 5. Although Intel has made other mistakes of its own

ABIT KT7A-RAID – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KTA Overview – CNET

Like you, I replaced the northbridge coolers on all of my boards. This site hosts no abandonware.

Realistically, manufacturers will also have to make sure that their board design can work at the increased FSB. Tue Jan 22, 5: Data Explorer Page I reinsalled windows about 5 times, played the IRQ shuffle, and updated all of my drivers. I think my next step would be talking to the Digi tech support people.

I know because flashing the BIOS on my similar board cured all my woes. You can get around the issues xound patches, but if you want a PCI sound card kt7s should really consider a non-KTA board. OK, can you give me some details? I still have that system, and it still works, still nice and stable.



Performance is on a very good level; in some benchmarks, the board even scores the 1 ranking. This is exactly why so many manufacturers are concentrating on releasing KTA based solutions. I like them alot. Or should I rather get a Sound Blaster Live! I then rebooted and since then, I have experienced NO Problems whatsoever.

Users browsing this forum: You’re the first person I’ve ever heard of who actually owns one of those. I am unaware of any patch through. The Athlon also uses quite a bit of power.

I couldn’t figure out Zalman’s logic behind the one side of the NB47J being shorter, but now I know why. What did you do to get the RAID working? I abitt hated the goofy mounting mechanism for these Zalman northbridge coolers, so I used thermal epoxy instead. Overclockers will likely be very happy sounc ABit’s well-known Soft Menu, which offers a great number kt7z options to influence the system performance.

Provided that they already have a solid KT motherboard design, producing a KTA solution often requires little more than a few design tweaks and a drop in of the pin-compatible A North Bridge.

Then all is good!

It sounds like there could be Interupt problems, so abut need to make sure that card is in the one slot on the Motherboard that does not share an IRQ. DOS see’s the drive with success and the slurring sound issue is gone! The only other thing is to make sure that you have the DMA mode for your hardrives turned on.

There are only a few choices available as replacements for the OEM coolers that don’t require cutting or epoxy. That’s why the last two row of fins are shorter to make way for the flower shaped CPU cooler.

Vantec has two that fit without any permanent modifications: Good luck with yours!
