ABIT VT7 Motherboard - VIA PT880 Done Right

Up until now, VIA PT880 motherboards have been somewhat of a second class product. Designed badly or very little overclocking has seen them fall to the back of the pack. Finally someone has taken up the VIA cause and given them a fair go.


The ABIT VT7 is what we have come to expect from ABIT - quality, reliability and overclockability are all present, however, we are not accustomed to value based motherboards from ABIT. Normally we expect to see a Gigabit Ethernet or a Silicon Image SATA RAID controller and Firewire but this motherboard is plain Jane with some overclocking bite.


If you are looking for a motherboard with heaps of features, you won't find what you want in the VT7. However, if you're looking for a super overclocking motherboard on a budget with the ABIT name, the VT7 is right for you and will give you what you are looking for in your Pentium 4 system. It's VIA PT880 done right.


- Pros






Great Overclocking


Native SATA


- Cons


No additional extras like Firewire or Gigabit Ethernet


Poor power connector placement
