dEjAvU meldt dat Patrick Schmid van Tom's Hardware Guide 12 socket 370 Via Apollo Pro 133A plankjes getest heeft. De meeste plankjes leverden wel een redelijke performance (voor een 133A chipset dan...) maar hij vondt het overclocken op deze plankjes niet ideaal, te weinig FSB's of geen voltage tweaking:
The clear performance winners are the Gigabyte GA-6VX7-4X and the Asus CUV4X-M. Both generated really good results, which can almost be compared to some slower BX133 motherboards. Stability was not an issue this time; all candidates were very reliable.
[...] Going to the next computer shop and buying a VIA Apollo Pro 133A motherboard using Socket 370 seems like a safe affair today. None of the boards caused any problems during our tests. Only two did not reach the expected performance, but those deficits might get fixed with BIOS updates.
Looking back at the test, I'm missing a real overclocking champion! Of course there's the little Asus board, but as this MicroATX motherboard cannot provide enough flexibility for most home users. Elitegroup comes with all important features, but the P6VAP-A+ still lacks performance. All boards let you chose FSB speeds up to 150 MHz, but as long as you cannot increase the processor voltage, overclocking might be a rather disappointing affair. IWill even offers 166 MHz FSB, which did not run stable though. I doubt that the additional IDE controller chip will ever tolerate heavy overclocking.
