For those who just have to have a Pentium4, Abit has a board for you. But is this lauded board any good? To find out, just head on over to Overclockers New Zealand and see their latest review of the Abit TH7-RAID Motherboard. here's a snip:
"Abit includes an onboard diagnostic display which shows different codes in case anything goes wrong. A list of post-codes with explanations is in the user's manual for easy reference. Next to the diagnostic display are two tiny buttons and one is for power on and the other is the reset button. Most people wouldn't use them because there are two buttons which do the same things on your case. However, some players have their PCs without any case might like the idea. An easy access to the power and reset functions without extra wiring. I use Senfu DIY house which doesn't need to use these two onboard buttons anyway. The design is good idea for a very specific group of tweakers."
t-break has just posted a review of the AOpen AX4T Motherboard which features the i850 chipset for the Penyium4. here's a snip:
"AOpen's philosophy, as far as features are concerned, is based on a pay for what you want. This board supports their Diagnostic LED module, but you'll need to get it separately. There wasn't any option for a RAID controller or Dual BIOS. However, a Network port is built on top of the USB ports for Network connectivity. A USB header is also present for additional USB ports, but the board was not bundled with an extra USB cable to take advantage of the header."
