Thumbs up Abit KT7A Raid

I had an KT7 that died awhile back. The thing was fast but it was buggy . I missed that board. When it came out it was priced beyond $160 I think.
At Computer Geeks I bought the KT7A for about $72.00. What a deal! Anyway Along with it I have a T-Bird 1.4 w/266 bus on the way. Is this processor overclockable? If so what can I crank her up to? Any suggestions on a cooler for it? Any instructions on what to do with this chip?
Thanks In Advance.

With proper cooling, you may be able to reach 1.6ghz. Don't expect to go much higher than that.

Cool

Yep - 1.6 is about normal for that combo. Best balance of price/performance is the Thermalright AX7 with a fan of at least 35cfm. Since it uses 80mm fans even a 46.5cfm fan is reasonably quiet. And it fixes to all three lugs on both sides.
