Particularly notable are the voltage adjustments for the Northbridge, Southbridge, and chipset – in addition to the expected voltage adjustments. Abit uses flat edge connectors for IDE connections, which does a very good job of removing any interference from the bulky IDE cables. That doesn’t mean that the region surrounding the AGP slot is barren, though. This means that any Athlon 64 can be set to lower CPU multipliers and higher frequencies to get the most out of high-speed memory. The latest version of uGuru 2.

I’d far prefer a taller passive north bridge cooler to a low-profile unit equipped with a fan that’s probably going to get annoyingly loud over time. Having both connectors tucked away together at the top edge of the board makes routing power cables easier, cutting down on clutter that could otherwise restrict air flow within a case. Not that I’m knocking the passive cooler.

The only surprise here is memory voltage, which is somewhat limited to 2. Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula netwogk the holidays.
The latest version of uGuru 2. We first tested uGuru in our review of the Abit KV8 Max3, and it continues to evolve as a very useful tool for the overclocker.

Although I haven’t encountered an Athlon 64 heat sink neteork enough to create clearance problems on the AV8, the board’s passive north bridge could potentially conflict with mammoth CPU coolers.
Board layout Unless you happen to be sporting a case window or an overactive fashion sense, aesthetic appeal is probably the least important characteristic for a motherboard. The board also has an on-board header for another two USB ports.
Here, Abit uses AMD’s stock Athlon 64 heat sink retention bracket, which clears out plenty of room for standard heat sinks. We like the edge connectors, but some case designs make it very difficult to connect the edge-connectors.
