Thinking about getting the KK266. Has Iwill put out a bios update that has selectable memory timings?

I read the Turk O/C's hacked one.

Yes - the bios dated 0307 has more aggressive timings. It actually is a little faster than the TurkOC (670/745 vs 660/738 @158 ). The TurkOC bios allows to disable ACPI though, which is a nice feature that the IWill does not support yet.

maybe a dumb question Yomama but is the Iwill bios (0307) also called the turbo bios? if not, how do the two compare, if you know

thanks!

yeah some call it the turbo bios. I prefer the 0307 over the turk but both work well so use whatever floats your boat. The Iwill supports up to a 15x multiplier too, not sure if the turk's does. Both are very good.

I can't get stable with the turk bios. 0307 lets me run 155x10 with cas3 highest settings with crucial pc133 cas 2 ram . turk won't even run at 150x10. I start getting boot errors, bsod, etc. Running win2k.
Remember every board is a lil different.

the 0307 bios seems to have its memory timings more evenly spread out. The turk's is pretty much super-fast or slow basically :)

Interesting, before using the 0307, I used the Turkbios and I got about the same FSB speeds (158-161 stable at CAS2 fastest possible settings). I am wondering whether something else may cause your problem. Possibly bump up the 3.3 Vio by 5%.

From what I've read it's either hit or miss. Some people say the IDE problem is fixed but some have taken a turn for the worse. I'll hold off on 0416 for a while myself.
