ABIT AG8 Review, Athlon 64 Overclocking, and more!
Good evening everyone, I'm here with more news from the tech world. I'd like to take this time and comment on a game I've recently bought... Resident Evil 4 for the Gamecube. I'll spare you any details, as multiple in depth reviews have already be published, but I will say that this game has brought life into the Resident Evil series in a way I didn't think was possible. From the graphics and sound, to the game play and level design, I've been totally blown away. If you own a Gamecube and are considering this game, consider no longer. Just buy it. Now, on with the news!

"We managed to overclock the Soltek K8TPro-939 to a maximum stable speed of 255 MHz on the HT bus, with a memory divider of 1:1, HT multiplier of 4x, and CPU multiplier of 9x. These settings resulted in a total CPU clock of 2295 MHz, memory clock of 255 MHz, and HT bus clock of 1020 MHz. Unlike the 3901a, the SATA port on this particular board is locked and we experienced no problems with data integrity"
