BIOS support is so awful, it just baaarely overclocks, you could almost say the BIOS is missing overclocking features and looks unfinished.

I'm using this board in 2 new builds I'm doing for some family members in California... It looks good, and it runs well @ stock, but overclocking = no. Very sad state of affairs considering it's a Fatality series board (also strange to see a budget board with Fatality's name on it... )

which BIOS version are you using?

It's still definitely not perfect but people are getting 450fsb on air.

abit's BIOS team look to have hit the ground running after Cebit - quite a few new betas about.

Title change request: abit's latest bad motherboard offering

Heh :\

Nothing against them but, their lack of good stable BIOS' on their newest boards has really got people in a tizzy.

it's not as if that is unique though - e.g. I see many complaints about Asus' lack of support (the best BIOS for the P5N-E SLI after 4 months is still the somewhat buggy release), there are still complaints daily about the Gigabyte 965s etc. etc..

Anyway, as I said above there now seems to be quite a flow of new betas.

Actually I think abit do support their boards pretty well. Certainly they are getting better and the release of the beta's is good. You have to remember development, testing and implementation of a new BIOS takes time.
