Andy van BXBoards heeft een review van het Asus K7M moederbord op z'n site geparkeerd. Hij is erg positief over de plank, vooral vanwege de overclocking features:
For the first time on an Athlon board, we get overclocking features worthy of the name. The AMI BIOS allows for the selection of a huge range of bus speeds, including 90 and 95 Mhz. At 100Mhz and beyond, right up to 125Mhz, bus speeds are selectable in 1Mhz intervals. 133Mhz, 140 and 150Mhz are also supported. Testing revealed that the board was only 100% stable when bus overclocked up to 110Mhz. It was possible to get Winstone 99 results at 111 and 112Mhz, and to boot at 115Mhz, but its not quite stable enough. Close but no cigar. The bus overclocking is welcome, and allows for quite a performance increase. While the Athlon can be modified internally by those confident with a soldering iron to support higher multipliers, the risk of damage to the CPU with be off-putting to casual overclockers. 110Mhz gives a nice boost, and the Athlon running at 5 x 110 was incredibly quick and outpaced a Pentium III @ 550/110 by a huge margin. The Athlon really is an incredibly nice bit of processing kit.
Voltage tweaking is supported. VCore can be left at 1.6v default, or tweaked in 0.1v intervals from 1.3v up to 2.0v. Our failures to overclock past 110Mhz seem to be a "feature" of the AMD 751 chip, as the Athlon itself should be capable of at least 650Mhz, such is yield coming from AMD's FAB25 site in Austin, Texas right now.
Eerder behaalde Lost Circuits vergelijkbare resultaten. Erg vreemd dat-ie blijft steken op 110MHz.
