Question 4BDA2+ or 4SDA+ ?

Hi folks !

I´m new here but I can say that this is by far the best forum I have visited yet
Hopefully u can help me decide which mb to pick.
I have an Athlon classic K7 600 with Asus K7M so it´s time for a new comp
A 1.6A or 1.8A would be nice but not sure about the chipset:
i845D or Sis 645
If I knew for sure that with a bios update it would be possible to adjust the VCore on the 4BDA2+ a bit higher, perhaps to 1.85-2.0 V (only +0.1 possible now) and a bit higher VDimm (only 2.9 V now). VApg is adjustable up to 1.9 V, that´s not so important I think but nice that there is the option to.
The most important feature for me is that it´s able to fix the pci to 33 Mhz.
The 4SDA+ seems to have everythink: VCore up to 2.025 V, VDimm up to 3.2 and VAgp -2.2 V
But which one has better perfomance and is more stable ?
What max. FSBs are possible on these boards (with very good ram of course)

I just got the 4SDA+ and my 1.8 went straight to 2.4 600mhz overclock for nowt and thats with the retail intel h/s/f so its very quiet.

I havnt really had a play yet, but this board is 101% stable, not one crash yet. I thought id overclocked it to much when it kept locking, but it was the geoforce drivers from Nvidia. My Hercules Geoforce 3 likes to have the proper ones from Hercules for some reason.

All in all id say this is one of the best/user friendly boards ive ever had.

My only gripe is as its raid board Epox should supply you with enough ide cables to do this like other manufacturers do ie Abit, Msi, Asus.

Which PC2700 is the best ?
I´ve heard that the Kingmax has 5 ns chips ->200 Mhz :-D
but are only cl 2.5.
VDimm should solve this or not ?
