Penstar Systems heeft de Abit KA7 gereviewed en kreeg de plank op een maximale busspeed setting van 105MHz, niet echt geweldig dus. Uit de Quake en 3DMark benchmarks in deze review blijkt bovendien dat de KA7 meestal net iets trager is dan de Epox 7KXA, maar groot is het verschil niet:
Overclocking takes patience and time. In the short time I have had to play with this board, I have not been able to get it over 105 Mhz FSB. On the EPoX board I was able to get this processor stable at 770 Mhz (110 FSB), and the 7KXA is not known as an overclocker. Once the board gets burned in more the FSB speeds should be able to increase to 110 Mhz and beyond. Reports have been trickling in that this board can be stable up to 117 Mhz. One limiting factor many are running into is that they try to run their memory at the higher ratio, and unless they have super memory, there are going to be errors and instability. MS over at Lost Circuits has shown that HSDRAM from EMS can be run at 199 Mhz (with highly retarded memory settings of course). Most memory sticks cannot do this, as even 140 Mhz+ is too much for the average PC133 SDRAM DIMM.
