    What is new?

    Haven't been around these boards in a while.. what is the latest and great overclocking chip for AMD and Intel? Just curious cause I think I am ready for an upgrade from my Duron 600.

    What motherboard is the best overclocking mobo right now?

    Any AXIA or AVIA Tbird seems to be the best from AMD.

    The best chip you can get is a 1GHz AXIA Thunderbird. They can overclock to about 1.5GHz in cases (on air cooling) and need less voltage than other T-bird steppings to stay stable at a given speed.

    Okay, I need some help here...

    what is AXIA and AVIA?

    Plus, is there is really difference in the 266 bus on the high-end T-Birds?

    AXIA and AVIA are the codes that are printed on the core of the chip. Kinda like how one used to look for a good week chip, we now look for a good code chip.

    I just ordered a 1.0 266 AXIA myself.

    The 1.0 266 is about equal in performance to a 1.2 200.

    Some of the current mobo favorites are:
    Abit KT7A series
    Asus A7V133
    Iwill KK266
    I'm sure that others can bring you up to speed on others.
