The Overclockers Abit Site

Hi all,
I have decided to become the KEEPER OF THE ABIT STICKY. My "Vision" for the Sticky is that it be a constant source of the latest and greatest info for ALL iNTEL Abit boards. This will involve constant updating and refining to make it work.

Naturally, I will need your help in determining what's worthy of being stuck so start compiling those links now. When you find something that you think should be stuck I will need you to send me a PM with your link and a description of why and where you got it.

Once I have all the usefull links and info transfered from the original sticky to this one I will have William Un-stick it. Please let me know what you think.

THIS IS THE WORK IN PROGRESS:D:

This is by no means the finished product but it gives you an idea of what I'm thinking about. Obviously there is information that is usefull to all users and not Motherboard specific. I'm trying to think of everything but I surely wouldn't mind your input.

Please feel free to reply to this post or PM me. When I finish I will tell William and he will replace the existing sticky with this one which I will be editing along the way. Also, if for any reason I get called away and cannot update this sticky in a timely manner I will inform You and William. This way the Sticky could conceivably be handed off to another.

THIS POST IS BEING CONTINUOSLY UPDATED, IF YOU REPLY WITH GOOD INFO I WILL UPDATE THIS POST THEN HAVE YOUR POST DELETED SO THAT THIS WILL STAY NEAT.


Thanks All. This will be the best Abit info site on the Web if I can help it! Probably better than Abit's, although that's not saying a whole lot.:D

I'm not sure. I just downloaded it to see if it worked and I had no problems. Try again and then let me know a little more about your situation if it doesn't work.

The BP6 has a good support site that tells you how to set up the board from scratch so you can install win2k. The site is:
bp6.gamesquad.net
It has the best bios, drivers and an instruction manual for the board so you don't have to go looking on other sites.
Hope this helps someone..... :)

BD7/BD7-RAID DIP switch trick

setting DIP switches 1, 3 and 8 to ON on the BD7 series mobos preserves the CPU softmenu setting for FSB with softmenu disabled. it also helps alleviate cold boot problems


flaws with this trick
  • the FSB retained is actually the FSB set in softmenu minus 1
  • the softmenu voltage is not retained, which means either vid-pinning or running the highest clock you can with default vcore is needed
  • mod needs to be undone to change FSB speed


so far i have not tested what happens as regards RAM voltages and use of the DDR266 mode

The BD7 seriously needs a Mod/Bios for more RAM voltage.

Anyone seen anything floating around on the net?

Cheers
