How can you go wrong with an ABIT or ASUS? I have the ASUS A7V and it is just fine. I have my TB900 running at 1010 but I'm waiting to get better cooling.

Get it from a reliable dealer and if you have a problem let them help you. I'm lucky in that I live in an area with PC Fairs being held every other weekend. Whenever I get a major piece of hardware, I just buy it from someone who has a store near me.

thank you for replying. I live in midstate WI with no real PC suppliers near me. I will be buying mine online.

Yo-

What are your system specs before and after overclock? ie MHz, Temps, etc. Oh and what rev is your KK266?

Have you taken a measurement of your CPU/HSF package height? I am thinking about ordering the PAL but I have a serious (but temporary) space problem. My case design prevents a tall package. Its a mid tower and has the PSU sitting right in front of the CPU/HSF. Too bad I didn't think of that before I bought it. It had all the other features I wanted.

The battle born State
The chip is purple Tbird rated at 1.1GHz. It actually achieves [email protected] and likely 1400 at 1.95, but 1335 at 157 is sweeter. I am using IBM HDD, som CDROM and a modem, not much more so far since this is my performance system.

The alpha with 60mm fan (25mm high) comes to a total height of 75mm measured from the bottom of the mobo (,i.e. including the socket height, the CPU, the cooler, and the fan).

Now I once owned such a case and I feel your pain - they suck and are really difficult to work in too. One possibility to reduce height is to get a fan that's only 10mm high. They do not perform as well as the 25mm versions though (at least 2 likely 4C difference) and they run at 6000 rpm which can be noisy.

Good luck
