- ABIT KV8 Pro-3rd Eye

Looking out for an affordable yet reliable platform to base your S754 Athlon64 upgrade off? According to the guys at Viperlair, ABIT's KV8 Pro 3rd eye motherboard certainly falls into this catagory, offering all the necessities along with good overclocking and stability to boot. Also included is ABIT's ĀµGuru Clock which is a nice little added feature within their 3rd eye range.

While the VIA K8T800 was a strong chipset for the Athlon 64 platform, it was hampered by one glaring problem... a non-working AGP/PCI lock. This issue was addressed by VIA K8T800 Pro, as well as adding support for a 1GHz HyperTransport bus. While Socket 939 motherboards grab most of the spotlight, the Socket 754 is a great budget alternative, and to capitalize on this, ABIT released their latest Socket 754 based on VIA's latest chipset. As we'll soon see, the ABIT KV8 Pro-3rd Eye brings a lot to the table for a reasonable price.
