Yeah, I'm buying a K7S5A Pro, and I wanted to know if that Honey X added stablity. Right out of the box I have to flash my BIOS (old BIOS revisons won't see the Duron 1.6 properly). And since I am flashing the BIOS, I might as well see if I can get one with O/C'ing features. Theres another BIOS I could use, but I forget the name. I might have to check that one as well.

After I had bought the mobo, I looked around for a BIOS update, as I normally do every so often (you know the importance of a good BIOS right) and came across a K7S58 forum where everyone preached the brilliance of someone called Honey X...a self proclaimed bios magician!!! He reprograms, to improve, a regular BIOS with hex file testing to a degree I've never seen before. The impression i got was that he's a rare beast...a level headed overclocker!!! I read a lot of posts to get a better picture before trusting a bios flash to a man i don't know and read only good so trusted him and flashed with his version of the Ami-BIOS for this board. He put extra options on the screen (most i dont touch) but importantly, added the overclocking options on a simple menu. My whole system seemed to run much more smoothly with very few crashes at all, probably one every few months if that. If you've got a K7S58 then give it a try. I think the latest version is still something like 28/12/02 and has been on my system since two days after its release.
