I heard someone say the new board took care of the problem with the Raid. You know the VIA bug, which I think there was a down load for anyways. That's what I was thinking, but I could also be blowing smoke.
Well, I'm going to have to eat my words (and hopefully not my hat). I would've thought I'd hear about this, but Abit does in fact have a "KR7a-133-RAID" listed on their site. 4 boards in total, although the original KR7a isn't listed anymore.
Ok, I've figured out what the difference is. The KR7a-133-RAID (Abit's worst-named motherboard ever) has full ATA133. The orifinal KR7a-RAID has ATA100 on the normal ports, and ATA133 on the RAID ports. The difference is the Southbridge (obviously). Abit went from the VT8223 to the VT8223a to get ATA133 support (the Southbridge number could be off, I don't remember for sure).
I check out Abits sight a little bit. It seems a little confusing. Are you saying the new board will accept 133 HDD, and not just on the raid? If that is so that's great, sound great to me. Since the Iwill let me down, I threw in my board, sounds like I know which one to get. Any ideal when it's coming out.
