Asus K7M mobo review

Bij FPS3D hebben ze een review in elkaar gedraaid van de Asus K7M Athon plaat. En ook hier weer: 110Mhz busspeed maximaal.

The K7M supports Athlon processors from 500Mhz to 1GHz, so I can safely say you won't have any problem with an Athlon not working on this board. Also, unlike the SD-11, there are no problem using 650Mhz processors (thanks to those unlucky souls who told me about this problem).

I know you've been waiting, so before you wet yourself, here's the overclocking report: it works! Although the SD-11 has overclocking capabilities, I only know of a few who got them to work, excluding me. However I was successfully able to use a 220MHz (110Mhz) bus on my Athlon 600 without a problem. I tried a couple higher speeds, but since I didn't have my Peltier cooler set up yet, things crashed (as expected) after a few minutes.

After installing all the patches, everything was perfect at both 200Mhz and 220Mhz buses, so no worries for you "mission critical" job-holders. I can officially declare the K7M a perfectly stable motherboard. You won't even realize it's not a BX, except for the nice speed increase target=new>grin. Obviously the reasons for my overclocking crashes were processor cooling related, not motherboard related.

If any of you have ever used an AMI BIOS before, you know that the boot up times kick the best Award BIOS' pretty little bottom. Although Award BIOS usually offer many more features, in no way was this one a disappointment. Of course it can't match the BX-based Abit BF6's 119 available bus speeds, there are plently of reasons to like the BIOS.
