Oooo, from what I hear this is suppose to be some awesome memory. ClubOC has
that new TwinMOS Twister memory up for review.
And on that note what better way to try out that memory then in the awesome
Abit IC7 MAX3? Hardware Zone takes that board for a spin
and I have to say it's easily the best i875P board I have ever used.
Apart from the few setbacks, the ABIT IC7-Max3 is indeed quite a well equipped
board as it comes with Gigabit LAN, IEEE 1394 support, SATA RAID 0, 1 and 0+1
and a Secure IDE adapter. The board's design and BIOS options are definitely
made for overclockers, although its options are still not as radical as what
the MSI 875P Neo-FIS2R offers. Still, it did manage to hold its performance
well with a pretty average score in all of the tests thrown at it. However,
when it comes to loading the board with a full set of PCI cards, it did not
managed to hold its stability as applications kept exiting for no reason.
Tech-Mods has a no name PSU
for us today in their Strider Series ESST-ST400 PSU and that thing would fit
perfectly in the Xoxide X-Dreamer II Case that AthlonXP
is looking at.
