First of all I would like to all great overclokers here. This is my 1st message posted and hope u guys can help me up.

I plan to do my first overcloking soon. and I've spend sometime in the forum. I've heard everybody talking about this greate board Abit KT7A - Raid.

My question is : Is the Abit KT7A is as good as Abit KT7A -RAID ?(just left out the raid function?)
Do they have the same feature(except raid) and as stable and as overclockable?

Thank you so much for your time and knowledge.

p/s: I'm sure I'm not going to use RAID

These are identical but for the two extra ide channels on the R version..
I think the R version is a better buy, since getting two extra ide channels is fine, no matter if you use RAID or not.

I would get raid
I had a kt7 RAID with 2 IBM 45gb 7200rpm ata 100 drives
you should use raid striping
it makes all hard drive related operations twice as fast, all for the cost of an extra drive. If I had a choice between 1333 no striping or 800 and striping, I'd take the 800
of course, that's what I had, and now I have a 1333 with striping
I'm hoping to go to a 15000rpm scsi raid, but I don't want to put 900 dollars into a drive system.
