    Has anyone tried the 3C bios??

    It's the lastest official bios, you can get it here:
    http://www.viahardware.com/faq/kt7/faqdownloads.html

    Anyway, my point is that I'm still on the WW BIOS (the original one) on a KT7a. I tried all the Y series bios' (YH, etc.) BUT, I cannot overclock properly with them.

    With WW, I run at 1GHz (7.5x133)
    With YH, I can only get 933MHz, Maximum.

    This is a pain, I don't want to be stuck in the stone age forever, so does anyone know if, a) the new BIOS is any good, or b) why the new BIOS' are so useless?

    Funny, just flashed my BIOS from YH to ZT. My Duron 850 was stable as a rock at 1080MHz (144x7.5) with the YH BIOS, but the ZT BIOS made it unstable. Flashed it back to YH.

    CenturionStrategy---I have also been able to overclock the best with WW. WW has also been the most stable. To answer your question I haven't tried 3C. If you do post back and let me know how it goes.

    ZH 1.10B is the best BIOS for my Duron@1Ghz. I've tried YH but get the ocassional BSOD and registry error upon boot up. ZH is supposed for the KT7E but it works great on my KT7A-R. Check out the modified BIOS at http://www.icronticforums.com

    I have a KT7-Raid with an 800D @ 1050Mhz. Is there better bios revisions out there that might help my 800 become stable at 1.1Ghz? Cheers dudes. Sj
