I need reviews on the GA-8ITXR to find out if it is overclockable. The reason? It has ONE MORE PCI slot than the TH7-II, and I need all the PCI slots I can get.
Is the GA-8ITXR even stable for overclocking? What's the max bus speed and max voltage? How about the RDCG's, are they better or worse than Abits sometimes troublesome units? These are thing I REALLY NEED TO KNOW! PLEASE HELP!
I can't use the first slot. I usually have 4 PCI cards in. I need one slot open for testing cards, and the first one doesn't count. Some boards offer slots 2-6 instead of 1-5, otherwise I need 6 slots.
Damn, still no information on overclocking the beast!
I'd accept onboard LAN if any of my venders offered a TH7-II RAID with one, but NONE of them do. Besides, the RDCG's on the Abit are a little spotty, I was hoping that Gigabyte used better, but have no way of telling. And then there's the cool collor.
A good friend of mine has the board, he bought it for the 6 PCI slots, Promise RAID onboard and because another friend of ours really liked his 7DXR (AMD 761 board).
He's got his 2.2 on a 120MHz bus with full speed memory, he's satisfied with that and doesn't really feel like overclocking anymore. I think he just wanted to be at a higher clockspeed than I am :tongue:
Anyhow, I wouldn't buy it for overclocking specifically, but it's a good board otherwise.
BTW, why is the first PCI slot out?

There were three programs, I can't remember which ones because, during the few days I was testing it on my system, I didn't need them. First sign of old age is memory loss, I can't remember all the reasons I hated VIA chipsets either, but know I listed quite a few of them in here a year ago.
Anyway, yes, I still have some DOS games that are not that old. But I don't even have time to play them any longer.
Since not that much information is out there on the Leadtek, you should post everything you find in here. I would love to blow some holes in the "VIA superiority" theory.
