[H]ardNews 8th Edition

ABIT IC7-G:

Got Canterwood? Techseekers does, in the form of an ABIT IC7-G. This black and blue beauty has some serious performance as well as good looks, you can see our review here for comparison purposes.

If you are looking for the best performing, P4 motherboard then look no further. The ABIT IC7-G is built for overclockers by overclockers and it shows. The wide range of FSB frequencies and voltage adjustments just show where this board is aimed at. And in fact the BIOS is so well laid out that even the uninitiated can build themselves a sweet overclocked system.

Gigabyte 8KNXP Review:

More Canterwood action, this time UKGamer is bringing you a Gigabyte 8KNXP review from their distinctive gamers viewpoint. The review is 22 pages long, so pack a snack and head on over.

There is little doubt that the 8KNXP has enough overclocking options, and whilst the 'Dual Power Supply' system has questionable advantages, we still managed to get a stable 600MHz overclock using almost no special tweaks or tricks. So the headroom is certainly there.

800 FSB Foursome:

If an 800MHz FSB and a foursome is your idea of fun, check out this review of four i875P boards at Legit Reviews. I haven’t seen this many black beauties in one place since….errr, nevermind.

After 4 weeks of testing, 13 BIOS's, and a list of pre-mature BIOS issues that makes me want to check into a mental institution, we are finally ready to bring you an in-depth review of four Canterwood motherboards.

I hear they have a pill out now to help with that “pre-mature BIOS” issue.
