KT7A RAID Review

Overclockers Online has posted a review on the new KT133A board from Abit: the KT7A RAID.
In order to see if the KT133A would support even higher FSB speeds, I used some Mushkin PC150 memory and OCZ PC175 memory and tested how high I could get the FSB before it freaked out. I ended up at 156MHz with both sticks, which is normal for the Mushkin ram as it is maxed out but the OCZ ram can take a lot more. So I must conclude that the KT133A chipset´s limit has been reached. Maybe if I replaced the default heatsink + fan that Abit puts on top of the North Bridge, I would have gotten a few MHz more, but I decided against it as it would not give me any noticable difference. I was able to boot at 160MHz FSB, but the system would not load Windows :(.
