I have the chance to buy this board cheap from a friend, as I want to go Raid and this is cheaper then buying a raid card.

It is under warranty. You can see my current board in my sig. I have not used an Abit board since my BX based BE6-II version 1.0 w a PIII 700 that ran 1050.

What I NEED to know is whether this board can fit a Thermalright AX7 heatsink with a 80 mm Smart FanII properly without hitting any capacitors?

Second for overclocking purposes I see this as being a great board. Will it be comparable to My 8K3A board in terms of speed using pc2700 ddr on it. Can I expect to run 1.7 with my XP1600 as I now do at 1.7 ? Wjat are the issues with the 266A chipset , does the Abit board have a 1/5 divisor to keep the pci in spec?

Feedback welcomed

First of all, next time please take the time to read the other threads on this page. There are a couple regarding the KR7A boards and apparently you didn't even take the time to look. The search function also works great.

That being said, I have no idea what the point of switching from a reputable KT333 board to a KT266A board would be. If you want the RAID, you can buy an add in RAID card for $40 or less to add to your 8K3A which would be a much better setup, IMHO.
