5 out of 5 eggs catches a bad rap 02/19/2007

This review is from: ABIT AW8D LGA 775 Intel 975X ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This board works very well if you understand what you're getting into. Overclocks like a champ. (Pentium D 805 from 2.66 ghz to 4.1 Ghz.) Silent cooling functions well. Does support DDR 800 with Bios revision. The Audio Max has worked without a hiccup. If you're not going to get a Core 2 duo, this is one of the best boards you could get.

Cons: Cpu voltage regulators get a bit hot while overclocking. Removed the silent OTES heatsinks and replaced the thermal pads with Arctic Silver. Added an adjustable cooling fan and aimed it at them. Cool as ice now. uGuru has no digitally signed driver available, so Windows Vista will not allow you to run it.

Other Thoughts: The only real problem with this board is that it does not support Core 2 Duo.
