Using the ABIT Soft Menu II to adjust CPU settings like bus speed and core voltage is very easy. Just go into the BIOS and voila. I used two 333 Mhz PPGA Celeron processors for my overclocking fix. As expected I left out the default CPU settings cause who the hell wants to run their CPU at default speed anyway? Check out the results:

Speed Bus Speed Post Windows Stable
375 75 Yes Yes Yes
415 83 Yes Yes Yes
500 100 Yes Yes Yes
450?!? 100 w/ Turbo Yes No No

Stability was determined by running the WinBench 99 Suite a minimum of three times without any crashes that could be determined was caused by the hardware.

As you can see from the above chart, I was stuck at 500 Mhz per processor. I even tried running just one but 500 Mhz was the limit. The weird 450 Mhz POST reading when I tried 100Mhz bus with turbo, I'm sure it wasn't the right speed. But I never made into Windows so I can find out what it really was. As you can imagine, I was pretty pissed when I couldn't break the 500 Mhz barrier. I selected those two Celerons in the hopes of making to 550 Mhz.

Well obviously I didn't select them well enough. I did order two Celerons at 366 Mhz, maybe I can get those to scream at 550 Mhz. We'll see. As far as stability goes, this motherboard is as stable as the likes of the BX6, BH6 and even the BE6. Think about it, instead of having to handle one crazy clocked processor, it handles two, and does an awesome job doing it. That's stability in my book. My one main bitch about the board is the inability to disable one of the processors in the BIOS. You have to physically pull the mother out in order to disable it.
