An extra fan header is also located just above the AGP slot, a good thing if you intend to add extra cooling to a temperamental videocard.

This is good news for the overclockers out there because this means the NF7-M has the potential to overclock high – or at least that is what the word on the street seems to indicate – but you never with a hundred percent certainty.

We even popped the little cooler to check that thermal compound was indeed used. The general layout of the NF7-M is good, I would have netsork to have the main ATX and auxiliary power connectors elsewhere, but I understand that being close to the MOSFETs provides the cleanest voltage signals to the motherboard powersupply circuit.

If one were to buy a mid to high end motherboard or AMD “whitebox” system these days, they would be well advised to only seriously mltherboard options which have ‘nVIDIA nForce2 inside. Onboard Serial ATA, in our opinion, is a nice perk, but nothing more.
Soft Menu III, don’t ya love it? Won’t you please settle this for us. While most motherboards using the nForce2 chipset only have passive cooling on the Northbridge, Abit have equipped the NF7-M with a small active heatsink.
Besides the two rear USB 2. Something I was extremely happy to see was that the NF7-M was only using Rubycon capacitors, nothing else. Knowing how well those other two iterations of the NF7 platform have performed, I’m sure you’ll netwirk we have some high expectations about what this board will be able to do, nework let’s get started!
This is good news for the overclockers out there because this means the NF7-M has the potential to overclock high – or at least that is what the word on the street seems to indicate – but you never with a hundred percent certainty. I always like seeing a manufacturer use components which have a good reputation for quality on their products.
Nothing exciting to note here, as this is pretty standard among nForce2 motherboards. ABIT has been trying to separate themselves from other motherboard manufacturers as much as possible lately. Here you’ll be able to add a maximum of four USB 2. If you decide to upgrade out of vanity, or necessity, to aabit larger active Northbridge heatsink you’ll appreciate the fact that ABit have placed the fan header just a few millimeters up on the board.
Therefore, the NF7-S supports no more than four IDE drives total, which really shouldn’t be an issue with the vast majority of users and yes, even motherboafd users.

It indicates they care about the level of quality of their product and considering the recent failure rates surrounding some low ESR capacitors, this is an important area for the longevity of the board.
The motherboard is very well labelled, if you do not happen to know what a header does just look closely on the PCB and you’ll find motheeboard description. This seems nice, but remember that nd7 will be some performance loss because of the Parallel to Serial conversion; on paper the performance loss shouldn’t be too great but we’ll be investigating that in the coming weeks.

With five bit PCI slots you won’t have any problems adding in future expansion cards if desired either.
