Let’s move on and see how the board overclocks. I complained about it last time and I’ll complain about it again, the floppy drive connector is in a bad location. It doesn’t end there either, the Northbridge fan also includes some multicoloured LED’s so when it’s in operation it will blink in a series of patterns. Another thing that pleased me was that Albatron included an actual C-Media 4. In the most basic of explanations; Hyper Threading enables one processor to be seen by the operating system as two – consequently increasing performance in some types of applications. This way it is less likely that the cables will not get in the way of any expansion cards.

ABIT BH7 – motherboard – ATX – Socket 478 – i845PE
Because the iPE generates a lot of heat at high bus speeds, I was extremely happy to see Albatron included an actively cooled copper heatsink. Hyper-Threading is a technology which has remained dormant in the Pentium 4 processor for a while now, and only with Pentium 4-HT 3. Since January this Taiwanese company have really taken the hardware community by storm.
It doesn’t end there either, the Northbridge fan also includes some multicoloured LED’s so when it’s in operation it will blink in a series of patterns.
For a new company in a highly competitive market such as mainboards this says a lot. IWill want to catch your attention as you browse around the store shopping for a motherboard, and by colouring the PCB this bright colour they have built one of the flashiest motherboards around – I mean even the PCI and AGP slots are red!
I complained about it last time and I’ll complain about it again, the floppy drive connector is in a bad location. They didn’t really address the issues we brought up back then but we’ll go through them again for you.
If someone asks about a high quality, good overclocking motherboard or videocard, Albatron’s name invariably pops up. In celebration of the overwhelming use of the colour red on this motherboard, we here at PCStats.
To top things off, Albatron have also made attempts to cozy up to consumers by pricing their products very aggressively; they’re not always the least expensive on the market, but they usually do offer some of the best value around. Ships with the following: In the most basic of explanations; Hyper Threading enables one processor to be seen by the operating system as two – consequently increasing performance in some types of applications.

People with windows in the side of their cases will certainly appreciate that! Albatron recently celebrated their very first anniversary, and looking back it has been quite a year for this upstart motherboard and videocard maker.
Beginners Guides Cases and Access. Another thing that pleased sond was that Albatron included an actual C-Media 4. There are many good articles on the web right now which breath insight into what applications benefit from Hyper Threading, and which programs actually take a performance hit.
At the bottom of the motherboard users with full tower cases like the Inwin Q will have a hard time connecting their floppy drives. An Anniversary board that does well. If you are considering an upgrade to Intel processors with this technology it would be a good idea to do a little investigating first, top of the line Pentium 4 processors are still quite expensive.

This way it is less likely that the cables will not get in the way of any expansion cards. The motherboard is very well labelled and all the headers for USB2.
I guess in the “grand scheme” of things this doesn’t make a big difference, but anything that frees up CPU resources, and money in your wallet is a good.
