Due to the fact that all three boards performed identically and that each were impressive in their own way, it was quite difficult to judge a winner for this roundup. However, we'll start by discussing the two Abit boards. The AT7-MAX2 is a great board for users that require an extensive feature-set as well as maximum overclocking potential. Similarly, the KD7-RAID is great for overclockers on a budget that don't require features such as serial ATA, Bluetooth or gigabit Ethernet. The only complaints we had with the two Abit boards was the lackluster software bundle and poor AC97 onboard audio.
If you're not planning on overclocking, the MSI KT4 Ultra is a very worthy product - being the most feature packed board in this roundup. However, its slightly lackluster overclocking results and non-existent software bundle puts it slightly behind the Abit boards.
Finally, the Soyo KT400 Dragon Ultra is also a very worthy board, with an extensive software bundle and a decent amount of features. However, again, its poor overclocking results and lack of Firewire ports put it slightly behind the Abit boards.
Overall, each of the boards featured in this roundup have their own strengths and weaknesses. Some may lack features but make up for it in overclocking results and software bundle, or vice-versa. However, due to the fact that we feel overclocking is more important than software bundle or features such as onboard audio, we have decided to award the Abit AT7-MAX2 as the winner of this roundup.
Abit AT7-MAX2 - 9.5/10
Abit KD7-RAID - 9/10
MSI KT4 Ultra - 8.5/10
Soyo KT400 Dragon Ultra - 8.5/10
