The upside is that the CPU temperature that you get in the BIOS, or by using a monitoring program, is going to be more accurate than you’d get from most other forms of temperature monitoring. In other words, don’t hesitate to get the MSI. Tue Nov 07, 6: You can’t beat the perforance and tweakability of Abit.

acc97 Jun 13, Posts: Let’s hit some specs before I get much further here The only problem with the KT7, at least the raid version, is that it has too much for its own good. Besides the traditional combination of 4 LED light signals to represent 16 different troubleshooting functions during boot up, Smart-D-LED now literally tells you the status of the boot up process, so that you can easily find the k7t of any possible failure.
