    The IWill does it easily. In most RAM reviews I've seen, they use the IWill board to rule out the limits of the other hardware besides the RAM.

    I've heard that my MSI KT3 Ultra has 1/6 dividers, but now that I think about it, it doesn't act like it does. Thought the Abit KX7-333 and the EPoX 8K3A+ did as well, but I guess I was wrong. If I would've known current boards don't support 1/6, I probably never would have purchased my KT3 Ultra yet, but that's ok. I couldn't have waited long enough for my upgrade if I hadn't

    i never remeber seeing a kt3 even hit 200..have you? i know that epox and abit boards can get that high but they are running way outta spec.

    now here is a question. pretty sure the iwill prefroms a fair amount worse than the kt400 but i wonder with teh kt400 at 333 and the iwill at 400 if the iwill would be faster? that is of course running the cpu bus at those speeds as well.

    Yeah, I've seen in reviews where the KT3 hit 200+ rock solid. I'm at 187 rock solid. 190 is 99% stable when I drop the multiplier to 9.5x. 193 seems to be where I max out. I was thinking it was my RAM because it was at maxed timings. Then I realized that the same thing happened when I switched to the most laxed timings. Still S.O.L. over 193. I can hit the BIOS at 200, but can't boot, and the screen is a bit messed up. Maybe AGP? Wouldn't think so, but I guess it is possible. At 200, it would only be running 80MHz. Then again, I haven't really tested for AGP bus stability with this card in another system. My hard drive sucks for OCing, but that wouldn't cause artifacting on the BIOS screen. Either system RAM or AGP card I guess. PCI is a possibility, but I only have a NIC in, and that NIC has been good up to 41.5MHz in another board...

    Even my 8KHA+ (KT266A) can do 200MHz+, but my ram maxes out at 192MHz and that's with very cold air blowing on it.

    MSI's new board based on the KT400 (KT4 Ultra) will have a 1/6th divider in a future BIOS version. Check it out here: http://www.neoseeker.com/Articles/Ha...ews/msikt400/. Too bad the benches make it look like garbage compared to it's KT333 brother.

    to me the 1/6 sounds like another promise that will just be broken.

    just read that last nite....i wouldn't say the kt4 is that bad compared to the kt3....in fact it won on most benchmarks when using 333
