Biostar M7MIA AMD 761

Today, we'll be reviewing the Biostar M7MIA - the first Socket A, AMD 761-based board we've received from the folks at Biostar. Thanks to its shiny new chipset, the M7MIA comes equipped with support with 133MHz FSB Athlon processors, as well as PC1600 and/or PC2100 DDR-SDRAM memory.Let's take a look.

Since there seem to be few features to distinguish this board, it stands to reason that there are few jumpers to be found, thus greatly simplifying the configuration process.Only a single jumper - labeled JCKL1 - can be found on the board's surface, and it can be used to set the FSB to either 100MHz or 133MHz.Within the BIOS, user's will find only a single option relating to the processor, which will allow them to set the FSB frequency as indicated in the table above. As you can guess, the M7MIA is really designed with Overclocking in mind, even though it's AMD 761 chipset does supply it with a good deal of under-the-hood power. The BIOS can however be rolled-back to the last batch of valid settings by pressing "CTRL + Insert" at start-up.
