I love mine. It's a bit dated, but still a good overclocking mobo by today's standard, with good memory performance .

BTW, great deal you got... My current mobo is an AT7, so I have no PS2 ports at all.... when I got this mobo, there was a price premium for it, go figure.

its a great mb. i JUST upgraded from an 8kha+ to the 8rda+. i had that mb for almost a year which is evidence in and of itself as to how good the board is because im an upgrading fool. =)
it 152 fsb is the max you can run because it doesnt have a 1/5 divider. it has a 75% divider at fsb over 160 with spd selected. mushkin rules did an outstanding thread on the 8kha+ over at amdmb.com in the epox motherboard area. i would suggest setting aside a few hours and going over there and reading it. i think theres over 600 posts on that one thread so its a lot of reading but it mostly good stuff.

UH....I think the first shipping board was ver. 1.3 or something... And if someone is e-baying then it may be the older board.

There are LOADS of bios both beta and official.

Id probably start out with beta 8khal00.bin and then try some newer official ones.

Take a look at www.aoafiles.com for bios.

Kick ass board, with some good memory you can run high FSB and get great benches.

8KHA+ Rev 2 is the best KT266A board to come

down the pike. Tbred compatable.

Someone has evidently been unplugging/plugging PS/2

devices while the power was on and killed the PS/2 port.

Hotswapping USB devices... no problem.
