It’s apparent that this board has undergone extensive engineering to combat heat issues, and this manifests primarily around the CPU area where dual extraction fans, heat sinks and a fan-shroud have been used to cool the MOSFETs metal-oxide semiconductor field effect transistors.

The FSB limitation here is likely the result of the 14 multiplier, which is the lowest available on the unlocked 3. ABIT claims that each board is put through the wringer to qbit rock-solid stability something we can attest to having witnessed first-hand in the component temperature testing rooms at ABIT’s development headquarters.
Abit Fatal1ty AA8XE Motherboard Review | PC Perspective
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone. Sometimes gaming is as much about appearances as substance, and there is no doubt that Abit understands this. SiSoft Sandra Application: Sign up now Username Password Remember Me.
I need power and lots of it. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. We’ll go into the entire feature list on the following pages, but here is the feature and specification list from Abit’s website.
We did a brief test with an unlocked Prescott and managed to reach a stable x14, or a speed of about 4GHz on air. Dimension – ATX form factor x mm.
Home Reviews News Forums. This question is for testing whether you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. In addition, ABIT has strategically placed copper strips underneath the CPU area to draw heat away from the circuit board itself, and a rigid fan assembly has been created to cool the memory modules. You may have read on our pages here at PC Perspective some aa88xe ago about Abit and their development of products with the Fatal1ty group.
Apparently, this is the limit on air staa modest voltage increases for this processor, since the stock 13X multiplier would only reach x13 – approximately the same speed.
ABIT AA8XE – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – i925XE
With water cooling or phase-change cooling, the Abit Fatal1ty would likely satx this chip further, since heat was becoming a large problem with this Gallatin core CPU at nearly 3. You can see the shroud for the dual OTES cooling for the power sataa.
We were extremely pleased to reach a stable x12 with our test 3. Keep up with the latest tech news, reviews and previews by subscribing to the Good Gear Guide newsletter. We then tested this board for a full work day with strenuous 2D and 3D workloads and as hoped, found no evidence of instability or heat-related issues.
All fans are controlled by the mGuru utility, which also monitors system temperatures. According to ABIT’s research, these transistors become among the hottest running components during strenuous periods of system use. Log in Don’t have an account? Packaging Content – 1 x 7. Motherboard manufacturers aa8ex, in recent years, struggled to make szta stand out from their competitors and Abit had an uphill battle to develop some new innovations to put on their ‘Fatal1ty’ motherboards that would indeed live up to the expectations that they set and built up.
Grunty gaming board: ABIT Fatal1ty AA8XE motherboard
Overclocking The Fatal1ty is designed for top performance, and top performance normally includes overclocking. The starting point for the 3. This motherboard squarely targets gamers wanting to build a powerful and intimidating rig.
The BIOS controls with wide adjustment ranges will allow overclockers to push the Fatal1ty to wherever the processor can go. The idea behind this new brand was to allow Aa8ce and the Fatal1ty group to develop new ideas in gaming hardware and to have the ability to market them strongly. Installation was a breeze, although we did have to remove the fan shroud to gain access to the mounting sta in the top-left corner of the board.
