    Abit or what ?

    What is the best O/C MB out there. I have 850 T-Bird on A7V and stable @1060 @ 2.17v except during stability tests and such. Is there a burn in time and what to use. Should I turn it down to 850x 100 and run some burn in tests. Help
    Thanks Reef

    The ASUS A7V133 seems to have the best blend of features, physical layout and performance. That's my personal opinion though, I haven't managed to get an official stamp of approval on it yet.

    I am running An ASUS A7V133A MB with and OC AMD 800 CPU to 950. It is the best board out there now. The Heatsink is my main problem in getting the OC higher, but once I decide on the best cooling of the CPU, The ASUS MB will take me there! It is fun to use and has everything adjustable in BIOS for overclocking. Don't forget to connect the L1 Bridges on the CPU first.

    Both ways you won't be disappointed. Performance of both boards are on par and it's a matter of features like RAID controllers that seperate them. I'm hard pressed to believe one is BETTER then the other in any significant way. btw I'm running KT7-RAID w/ T-Bird 800 @ 1050/1100.

    ive had 3 abit boards now (bx6 2.0, bf6, be6 2.0). all of them have worked great and all were great overclockers.
    ive work with asus, there great boards too, but i think abit has a better and easier to use bios.
    ...just my 2 cents.
