    Wendle Ives has pushed a CPU with a default speed of 700MHz up to 850MHz!
    Stability: 10
    Remarks: Using Northwind's GFD rev 2 Athlon overclocking card. What a difference! I took it slow only advancing 50MHz at a time and letting it run for a day or so in between changes. I have only had to push the Vcore up to 1.65 volts so far and I might go for 900MHz soon. Not half bad for a chip that cost me less than $250.00
    Wendell Jameson has pushed a CPU with a default speed of 500MHz up to 650MHz!
    Stability: 10
    Remarks: Overclocking with NinjaMicros Freespeed Pro

    Comment: humanjoy... Try to collect an Athlon overclocker card. Other solution is to replace the resistors on the CPU board. (Easy, but needs electronical skills)

    Comment: Could not get the EP-7KXA loaded with win98. Too unstable, with random lockups - even in safe mode.

    Comment: Just got this board up and running (had to wait an extra day for my Athlon 750 to arrive) and man, what a difference over my old super7 board (also and Epox!) This setup really screams. I am glad I waited for the VIA chipset - KX133, as I use an AGP X 4 graphics card and PC133 SDRAM. Now to find an easy to use overclocking card to go along with it. Anyone got a recommendation???

    Comment: Anyone know how to use the Softfsb on this mobo ? What's the highest Vcore setting for this mobo ? Can a pc-100 ram use 133MHz ??
