The ABIT AV8 - Worth the Expense!

mattypric..., Ciao
4 September 2006
  • Excerpt: I bought the ABIT AV8 as an upgrade from a cheap-and-cheerful ASRock board. The ASRock was perfectly good, but I wouldn't go past the word 'Functional' to describe it. It did the job, and that's that. Hardly any ability to overclock, no soaring performance and 2 channel sound. The AV8 is a big step up from the ASRock, I can tell you now.
  • Pros: Fast, Quiet and Reliable
  • Cons: None !  !

  • Excerpt: This board is a rock solid example of Abit quality & engineering. I bought this board around a year ago & have personally not suffered any problems with it at all, except for having to update the BIOS as the version it shipped with had the SATA & IDE BIOS entries back to front!! I have recomended this board to friends of mine who have also bought it, one of which reported having great difficulty trying to get a Radeon 9550 to work on it.
  • Pros: Good solid board with pro chipset
  • Cons: fussy about hardware, particularly dislikes cheap hardware

ABIT AV8 - 3rd EYE - Amazing

loudbob, Ciao
9 November 2004
  • Excerpt: I recently purchased the ABIT AV8 3rd EYE Motherboard and an Athlon 64 - 3000 (Winchester core) Processor. I purchased the ABIT Motherboard due to the fact my last motherboard was ABIT and I was totally satisfied with it. When I got the AV8 set it all up with the new processor, I was let down because it did not work. As the processor was the latest version, the motherboard was unable to identify it, thus would not work.
  • Pros: Excellent for Overclocking
  • Cons: Needed a bios update

  • Excerpt: Wer heute noch auf ein AGP-Mainboard mit Sockel939 setzen will und dabei viel Wert auf Stabilität und Overclockingfunktionen legt, ist mit dem Abit AV8 bestens Bedient. Bevor ich aber beginne erst einmal ein paar technische Details zum Mainboard: Lieferumfang: Erster Eindruck: Montage: Erster Start/Konfiguration (BIOS) Betrieb / Stabilität: Beiliegende Software: Overclocking: Athlon64 3200+ Venice-kern (E6-Stepping) Mainboard (is ja klar ^^ ) Abit AV8 RAM: 2x 512Mb...
  • Pros: Stabil, viel OC - Funktionen, Leistung
  • Cons: Platinenlayout

Sehr gutes Board fürs Übertakten

  • Excerpt: Dieses Mainboard is im großen und ganzen sehr gut. Zahlreiche BIOS Einstellungen machen das Übertakten zu einem Kinderspiel, was durch die beigelegte Software unterstürzt wird. Das uGuru System von Abit überzeugt dabei voll und ganz. Abit liefert mit diesen Mainboard alle Anschlüsse die man braucht.
  • Pros: leise, gut Übertacktbar, mitgelieferte Software
  • Cons: bei einigen ATI Karten instabil
