The HOT 597 is definitely one of the cleanest and fastest SS7 boards currently available. Excellent stability combined with more than decent overclockabilty provide the backbone for a system in which even the lethal considered combination of the VIA MVP3 chipset and the TNT -based graphics adapters can be configured without major hassles. Part of this can be attributed to the elegant incorporation of the different IRQ routing table selections into the chipset features. In addition, hardware monitoring from within the BIOS or, if installed, through a Windows utility provides the necessary information about the state of the system that, in case of user absence (24/7 use) also shuts down automatically in case the CPU temperature limit is exceeded.
