has u guys herd of the Abit AV8 3rd eye mobo? its soket 939.
it alows you to overclock (and underclock) without rebooting.
and the pci and agp bus's are loked regaurd less of what the FSB is!
its based on the via K8T800 Pro chipset with the VT8237 Southbridge it has 2 S-ATA wich are RAID capable and the usual 2 EIDE and FDD ports.
also has 6 USB 2 ports and 3 firewire.
the 3rd eye is a little device that plugs into a USB port and it displays the CPU,AGP,PCI freq, and cpu and ram voltages. also CPU and VRM temps and the date and time. with it you can preset several profiles to overclock and downclock when you want without rebooting.
the BIOS has got cool fetures.

im gona get this with my upgrade!

I've heard is a giant pile of fresh warm :turd: actually. Overclocking from Windows is not only useless, it's pointless. EVERY modern board offers AGP/PCI locks. It's a POS.

I've heard the same. I bought one and then returned it after reading reviews of it.

Also, loads of people are complaining that it doesnt work with Antec PSU's - ***!!!

I'm not sure what more you want us to say? The board has big issues. People are complaining about it. Steer clear of it or you will probably regret it.
