    Elsewhere have seen reports of good reduction in power draw at 1.4V and 2.2 GHz. Reply

    Unless I have already missed it, I sure would like to see a review and recommendation, good and bad comparing the 90ns 939 CPUs to the prior versions.

    Good question #1. I have had a KT880 Dragon2 for several months now, and haven't had a single lockup or freeze. It doesn't have anything more than a /6 divider for overclocking, but I was still ablel to get a decent 15mhz more for my FSB. Rock solid, VIA has made a loyal fan here!

    On a nit picking note, the NF7-S Rev.2 that is such a good overclocker does NOT have Gb lan. That is only for the new version of the NF7 that uses the Gb MCP with nForce3 tech. Overclocking has been terrible on this version, stay away!

    "This week, the AMD Athlon XP 2600+ is available for less than some lower models and is based on the same Barton core, which made the Athlon XP 2500+ so popular among overclockers and gamers alike. Paired with an nForce2 chipset motherboard,"

    I wonder why AnandTech completely ignores the KT880 chipset.
