The Pentium 4 mainboards have been getting a lot of play lately and we have seen phenomenal overclocks on SiS chipset boards.
ABIT SD7-533 – motherboard – ATX – Socket 478 – SiS645
Here is a quick look at the SD and what it can deliver. ABITcertainly not a company that is new to the PC Industry, has spent much of its long career at the forefront of leading edge technology. ABIT has been credited with being one of the first companies to pioneer “overclocker friendly” motherboards as sdd7 back as their LX chipset based boards.
They also pioneered Vcore voltage selection and were the only company brave enough to give this feature to the enthusiasts for quite a while.
What used to be unheard of, are features we now take for granted. Funny that just a few short years ago, these were not seen as options that would “last” when they were introduced. ABIT, along abt other companies that followed suit, actually changed the way most companies look at performance and the overclocking community in general.
Had it not been for companies like ABIT taking the road less traveled, we could very well be stuck with OEM style boards that offer no outside performance adjustments. Currently MuTIOL’s main advantage is lower latency operation achieved through its unique bi-directional bus.
The Northbridge and Southbridge transfers, although theoretically two times as fast as current VIA P4XA and Intel chipsets, are still abitt by hard drive performance. This means the full potential of this technology is still far from being effectively utilized. This unique “two way” bus, while greatly reducing latency, also allows all southbridge components to share the bus at the same time. How is that possible? Here is a brief explanation from SiS:. Board basics at a glance.

This gives you a highlight of the board’s features. You can get the “full specs” from ABIT:.
From just looking at the SDit would be difficult to pick it out of a line-up of other Socket motherboards. There’s no colored PCB or super shiny qbit heatsinks. While the board does have a rather clean layout, there are a few things that immediately stand out.
This means that the power supply cable must be draped directly over the processor and heatsink. While this is an annoyance on any motherboard for sure, the problem is further compounded by the size of Socket Pentium4 heatsinks.
While clearance issues with the ATX power cable might be obvious whether it is installed or not, there are many problems that may only become apparent when installed. Site design and front-end production by mike kane.
