hipro-
I've got one sitting here on my workbench that a buddy brought back from Asia for me. it's OK, but nothing great. Here's the scoop on what I've recently tested:
Processor= 2.66
RAM=Corsair PC3500C2 512 mg
Radeon 9700
SCSI Raid 2 x36 gb 15,000 rpm Cheetahs

Plain IT7= 170/226 fsb =18191 3D2001se score
IT7 Max2= 168/224 fsb = 17893 3d2001se score
IT7 Max2 ver 2 = 166 fsb/223 17775 3d2001se score
Albatron 845PE pro II 166/223 17721 3d2001se score

The IT7 Max2 ver2 DOES support the 3:4 strap
Vcore is adjustable to 1.725, vmem is good to 3.2 (modded bios)
no agp volt adjustment. These Abits are easy to volt mod though-

Thanks for the welcome!!!
I actually used to read alot of the posts in the cooling forums a few years ago, when I first got into water cooling. never had to post-just did a search and found my answers!!
Anyway the original IT7 has been the fastest and most stable so far......

It's thought the original IT7 was made by Abit, and the IT7-MAX2s are being made by ECS (black PCB).

It seems the IT7 series doesn't improve much on the BD7-II, except for a lot of bells and whistles. I don't know why Abit doesn't provide a VCORE overvolt jumper like the Asus boards that allows 1.80- 1.85 in the BIOS. Or up to 2.9 at least, VDIMM with no BIOS hacks. And get rid of that damn cold boot problem, serious undervolting, and overly high temps in the BIOS.

I haven't tested my IT7 yet, but the BD7-II is overclocking about 2-3 mhz higher than my other boards. The IT7 should do at least the same.
