Hard OCP heeft een artikeltje in elkaar gedraaid over de Afterburner Athlon overclocking device van Outside Loop Computers. De Afterburner is een van de betere apparaatjes in zijn soort, de voltage en kloksnelheden zijn makkelijk in te stellen via drie draai knoppies:
If you want to OC your Athlon without the risk of destroying it, I would say that this is what you want. As long as the specs stay the same on the K7, which it most likely will for a little while, the Afterburner is an upgrade you can take with you to your next CPU. We were able to dial a 500 to 800MHz and a 600 Athlon to 750MHz quite easily while applying voltage tweaks along the way.
One other thing that should be VERY IMPORTANT in your decision is whether or not you will have room in your case for a Golden Fingers mod. Every other mod I have seen on the market is designed so that it sticks up instead of lying across the top of the processor like the Afterburner. Now in a full tower this may not be a problem, but with a mid or mini, you may find your power supply or something else in the way. I would be very careful about this.
One last argument is gonna be the price on this baby. It is surely not cheap but neither is the quality of the product. One does not go out and have a professional printed circuit board made in small quantity for no cash at all. Rest assured that you will be getting a good unit for your greenbacks though. And as with all things, someone is bound to come whore up the market for the honest folks sooner or later anyway.
You wanna OC your Athlon? The Afterburner is something you don't want to be without.
