I think he is reffering to the Abit AN52v
. But I could be wrong.
Apparently with that board, if you have the CMOS issues you just do these steps
|(1) Turn off computer power supply (on the power supply switch)
(2) Unplug the power supply AC cable (make sure the red light on the motherboard goes out.
(3) Pull the CMOS jumper from the motherboard and keep out for 30 seconds.
(4) Replug the jumper Make sure it goes back on the same pins), plug the AC cord in, switch on and hopefully you will get a CMOS BIOS Screen.
The AN52v 2.0
fixes these issues though.
As for if the board is good or not, I could not find any reviews, and most people says it overclocks older K8 (Athlon 64) CPU's just fine.
No word on any K10 CPU's though (Phenom's or Athlon 64 x2 7000 series)
Looks to be a decent board to leave at stock though.
