It took a lot of trouble to convince these people that there is something wrong as I later found out, the specs of the KT7A board actually don’t specify CPUs above MHz, so they should never have sold this board in combination with this CPU in the first place The North Bridge chip has been equipped with an active cooler – that’s particularly important for experiments at higher FSB clocks. Could it be that the BIOS simply needed a flash update? OK, can you give me some details? Send a private message to tommyboy4. I replaced it with a Silverado.

Motherboards, chipsets (Abit KT7A RAID Socket A ) – Avid Pro Audio Community
Sometimes the sticker is stuck on the side of the ISA slot. What did you do to get the RAID working? VIA stated to us that the mirror chip is the newest revision of the KTA, the ones without the mirror are earlier revision of the KTA chipset, so will this make a difference?
Does anyone know of any conflicts that could cause my system to be unstable? Also, as others have mentioned, ABIT used cheap crapacitors on their products.
Thanks for your reply I will try that now. It’s not the IRQs.
Last edited by KT7AGuy on I still love and use VIA motherboards, but I’m disappointed in their marketing-over-honesty, blame-it-all-on-Creative coverup approach to this bug. I had a Tbird system myself, and the KT7A non-raid edition was my first board. Asus A7V Page 8: The only one of my KT7A boards that ever gave me problems was my original v1. I also rationalize it by reminding myself that the Evercool units are doing a better job. Advanced Visualizer Page After dropping to mb RAM, it worked fine.

The Latest On Tom’s Hardware. I am scared that the fault is maybe abih to the processor which is an Athlon K7. However, the instability and corruption issues can be caused by other aggressive PCI cards, though not often aound such a degree. Mon Jan 21, 3: Aug 14, Posts: Then take out the disk and reboot.
They’re also very stable if you set them up correctly.

Mon Jan 21, AWE64 Gold would be very appropriate. There were a couple of bulging capacitors on the motherboard but I’ve already replaced them.
You can get around the issues with patches, but if you want a PCI sound card you should really consider a non-KTA board. Provided that they already have a solid KT motherboard design, producing a KTA solution often requires little more than a few design tweaks and a drop lt7a of the pin-compatible A North Bridge.
