Overclocking with Leufken's Gold Finger Device:

I was able to secure a GFD device in time for this review, and here are the results:


700Mhz... yay!

SiSoft Sandra:

As expected, the 100Mhz difference results in a higher score than the closest reference system.

Again the 100Mhz advantage shows a clear difference with the CPU Multimedia Benchmark.

The memory scores are a little bit higher this time around, but nonetheless, the weak memory performance is still apparent with this VIA KX-133 motherboard.

For some reason, this motherboard was able to overclock higher than the MSI K7-Pro in both cases.  Overclocking through the FSB and the GFD methods were more successful than my MSI K7-Pro experiences.  It's quite possible that the VIA KX-133 chipset is just better for overclocking than the AMD 750...
