The last few people to rate this board (that also left comments) had this to say:


DZip said: Easy to install and rock stable.

James Hickman said: Using the AMD K6 2 400 MHz overclocked to 550 MHz no problems whatsoever. Very stable with temps at 91 degrees. 128 MHz PC 100 and using a Golden Orb socket 7 fan. This board rocks for the AMD K6 2 processors.

Ray said: This was the most straight forward install I have done. I build ~ 10 boxes/yr, but with this one, everything fit and made sense. I installed W98SE, and with the UDMA\66, 2 meg cache, and AGP 2x it was amazed to see how fast Win can load, and run.

mike said: suspect that this board has problems with rfi whereas I live about 500 yards from a 50kw transmitter and have some mild issues with stability when attempting to o\c the processor.

Comment: DFI ist es nicht möglich seit dem 05.08.1999 ein Bios Update für das K6BV3+ Rev. A rauszubringen, dass auch K6-2+ CPUs unterstütz (nur für die Rev.B vorbehalten). Very shit!!! A Board for only old CPUs or K6-2/3 lines.

Comment: great board, stable and versatile. not sure that I have my AGP at 2x tho, running a k6III 400 on mine and a k6II 550 on my wifes, (we have same boards) the k6III 400 runs circles around the k6II 550!!!, can't wait to upgrade to a K6III 500. If any of you 'II' users are contemplating upgrading to a 'III' don't wait, the difference is very noticable. Incidentally, I ran a K6-200 at 250mHz on a 100mHz bus for some time and it really cranked, also ran a Pentium MMX 233 at 250mHz and the K6 was MUCH faster, that 64K cache really makes a difference. The K6III+ should really smoke, hope they make a 550 soon!!

Comment: the K6BV3+/66 board is a pice of shit! if you are looking for proformance and curently have a fic va 503+ look elsware my 3D max 99 scores are low as hell my AMD K6III 450 lost 2mhz after down grading to this board and as far as overclocking go somebody lied their ass of on this post i cannot do 500mhz at all running @ the 100 mhz bus speed but with my fic va 503+ I can run at a 112mhz bus with a cpu at 149mhz so not only does the 503+ run at a fast cpu clock but it also runs at a higher bus speed at the same CPU clock speed the dfi cannot even go higher than 100 mhz bus speeds. ok so calling it a pice of shit is a little crule but i spent over $100.00 for this board and im not impresed especialy considering my 503+ cost less and proforms better. but the their are some good points to the board like when the control panel opens up it does it werry fast no delays fo the icons at all but that really depends on the rest of your hardware especialy your harddrive and ram. but aside fron opening windows if you use a dimond supra express sereal modem and like to increase your uart speed this boards uart will alow you to conect at speeds of over 56k thats right over 56K but aside from thatyou honestly will not notice aney improvments in proformance because their are none. as for you who don't beleave me buy it but don't say i did not warn you at a 66is not all that it cracked up to be but it is their and you will feel it but only when you defrag a disk or open some programs so if you only surf the net go ahead and buy it you will love it but if your a gammer stay the hell away.

I am glad someone had the guts to bring all of these features to SuperSocket7 motherboards. I am about to buy another for my next project. This board is QUICK!

Comment: Good Mobo, (I upgraded from the equally good P5BV3+ to the K6BV3+/66) but when I obverclocked my AMD k6III-400 to 450 Mhz the hardware monitor quited, still the system remains stable and the CPU -thanks to an iceberg cooler- cool (40C) using a single 128 Mb DIMM. (That goes better than using it together with my two old 32 Mb DIMMS) The upgrade from an old Diamond Viper 330 to a Gigabyte 660+ Riva TNT2 pro card wasn't altogether succesfull, due to my noname monitor (not really noname, an old Highscreen LE48P). Thinking now of pushing it up to 500 Mhz. Will the CPU hold it???

Comment: what should i do ? now i have dfi k6bv3+ cache 1 mb, tv tuner (oak boser) 2 mb, memmory 64 mb (SDRAM), and procesor pentium 100 mhz. I wanna be upgrade my computer, but idont know what is the best performance and price for me... please somebody help me... thank's

Comment: I've set a 550MHZ CPU to 600MHZ using the CXT-Unit from the K6-2. You must only make it 2x100. The Processor understand it as 6x100 and so you have 600MHZ. (You need a good cooling device)
