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


sushi said: got this fantastic mobo last month and burned it in first with all its defaults for two weeks using an athlon 550. well now, my athlon has a new life as a 662Mhz (120x5.5), and rock solid at that.

Speedy said: After tweaking in the Bios my 700Mhz Athlon runs stable at 8x115MHz. That's 920Mhz!!! Softmenu III is great. And there is room for a big cooler. Once an Abit always an Abit!

Edwin D. Stovall said: So far so good. I'm getting good results with a humble Athlon 650 with no overclocking. (No, I'm not a wimp, but I DO have a 3-year warranty I'm not giving up yet!)

Ken said: If you have an Athlon (even the new T-bird) you need this board...period!

    Comment: I bought the board about 4 months ago. I am water cooling and overclocking my Athlon 500 to 800MHz. Easy install, and has been rock solid since I installed it. Love the board. My upgrade this winter will be the new KT7-Raid. I will be water cooling an Thunderbird (haven't decided what speed, but it will be >1GHz). Am very happy with Abit.
