It is nestled between four capacitors making for a tight squeeze to push the video card lifter.

Those with fingers the size of baseball mitts will soon grow to dislike Abit KV7 two lower capacitors. The northbridge fan is a debatable design feature.
On the one hand it is larger and Abit KV7 looks like it does a more effective cooling job. Two screws hold the top cover in place allowing for the fan to be lifted out. On the other hand it is a proprietary piece of hardware compared to chipset coolers Abit KV7 feature a 40mm or even a 60mm.

Those fans can be found at electronics stores if ever the northbridge fan should fail. The real reason for this style of fan may Abit KV7 in marketing appeal and cost.
Abit KV7 fan looks like it can do a more effective job and may be at a lower cost per unit than traditional box fan and chipset heatsink. ABIT does use a generous amount of thermal paste between the heatsink.

EIDE 1 and 2 lay flat against the motherboard instead of perpendicular. The only reason for this Abit KV7 change seems to be for cable management. Laying the IDE headers flat against the Abit KV7 and at the edge does help stop the ribbon cables from looping out into the case. We feel that the engineers had to place the headers end to end at the side of the board to solve space issues then laid them flat to provide a marketable reason.

One fan header should have been on placed Abit KV7 the backplane for the rear case cooling fan. The green jumpers control front audio connections. Rarely are com ports used today and Abit KV7 one out may have saved a few more pennies.
The third design flaw is the placement of the power connectors. The main power connector is tucked under the socket area very close to the heatsink. The power Abit KV7 comes from the PSU and Abit KV7 loops towards the front of the case then back to the board.
Abit KV7 However ABIT could argue that the power trunk could be fed across the Abit KV7 of the board then down to the connection thus problem solved…. This will be explained further on in the review. The four pin power connection is tucked tightly Abit KV7 capacitors and backplane but how often is a user connecting and disconnection power. It is also highly recommended that a power supply be used that has this power connection cable. Many users in ABIT Forums have recommended this additional power connector be used to provide for more operational stability.
It is a narrower width ATX motherboard and it is quite obvious that the reduction in space affected the overall layout. Overall the EIDE headers with their flat-to-the-motherboard design did not present an issue. The design feature did help Abit KV7 cable management by laying the cables flat against the back side of the PC case.
Note the way the floppy cable crosses over the PCI slots. Abit KV7 ATX Abit KV7 connector is directly below the CPU socket and in fact nearly comes into contact with our installed heatsink.

The clip that Abit KV7 the ATX power connector is also hard to Abit KV7 to for uninstalling it, as it lies directly between a capacitor and the power header for the north bridge heatsink. In addition to that, the placement of the power connector itself is not preferred as it forces the large ATX cable to go over the fan on the processor.
Needless to say, this placement will make it tough for the installer as well. There are three DIMM slots for memory installation, something that we will see across all of our KT motherboards today. In this case, they do not interfere with the AGP card or slot, Abit KV7 the Abit KV7 is able to install and remove memory with a graphics card installed.
The north bridge has a decent heatsink with a fan on it as well in case you feel the need to push the power and speed of the chipset. The floppy cable is placed below the Abit KV7 PCI slot, and if you have PCI cards installed, it will probably be a pain to remove or install Abit KV7 it.
