K7M Is One Of A Kind

AdvantagesGreat Design, Very Stable, Good Overclocking Potential

DisadvantagesPoor Asus Support (They Refuse It Exists)

"...truckload of capacitors. Since the Asus K7M deviates from the Fester design by AMD (which is very primitive), it is much smaller, among other things. Problems with smaller ATX cases should disappear almost entirely with this newer design. Also, the capacitor number has been significantly increased to better meet the demands of the power-hungry Athlon processor. I'd also like to remind you that it is possible to achieve a 220Mhz bus quite stably ..." Read review

The board I got ..." Read review

No real problems

Advantages4 USB sockets, reliable

DisadvantagesOIbsoleted by K7V

"My first Athlon purchase sits in the slot of this motherboard - a board based around the VIA chipset. The board is very stable, has 3 DIMM slots, 4 USB ports (two on a ribbon cable - so you can mount them on the front panel like I have), nice stable CPU PSU, UDMA 66 ports, and boasts the latest upgradable AmiBIOS. It is a breze to install, the instruction book is very good and everything you need comes with the board, including UDMA66 cables and the ..." Read review
