While the scores don't show it to be the fastest kid on the block, it is still right up there with most of the other KT400 chipset boards and I'd say that with a higher speed CPU and/or some good overclocking, this board could really fly. I was able to easily overclock the XP2200+ to XP2600+ levels without any trouble at all, and I know that it can go higher. This is very typical of Abit motherboards, as they really excel when pushed (if you'll pardon the pun) a bit. Not once in all of the testing did I get a lock up or a Blue screen, proving yet again how stable Abit makes their boards. With the ability to have several drives and just a ton of peripherals attached to this board, there is not much that you can't do with it. For my money, Abit has done it again, and come up with a very impressive and versatile board. Considering all of the features that this motherboard packs and it's complete ease of use and installation, along with an outstanding BIOS, I have no problems recommending the AT7-Max2 to both the moderate user and the heavy gamer and I am happy to give it an Editor's Choice award. Keep up the great work, Abit!
