ABIT AV8 Under Fire

Many Abit motherboard users didn't have a quite so merry christmas
this year according to the Abit support forums.

There seems to be a problem with the new Abit AV8 motherboard for the
socket 939 Athlon64. From what I've read in the numerous forum posts
it appears to work fine with the old 130nm Newcastle core Athlon64,
but if you put in a new 90nm Winchester core Athlon64 the motherboard
reads "9.0." on the digital display and just sits there, not even
sending a signal to the video card to turn on the monitor. What does
this mean? If you ordered a Abit AV8 motherboard and new Athlon64
processor online to build a new PC it won't work.

According to members of the forum a bios upgrade fixes the problem,
but you can't upgrade what you can't see and Abit doesn't say a bios
upgrade will fix the problem in it's description of the bios revisions
and in the facts it says that POST code "90" (do they mean 9.0.?)
means a failed overclock. In fact no where on the Abit site does it
even admit there's even a problem except for in the forums.

So what's going on? Is there a problem with the AV8 and a Abit
conspiracy, or are dozens of users mad they can't overclock their
processors? I'll let you decide that.

More than a year later, Abit has not and will not fix high CPU temp on IC7 series boards ...... AV8 can wait.

Holy cow with these many "warnings" to oc MSI. I'd rather call them warnings than tips.
