I remember that board! It used to have quite a fanbase as well!
Could you please tell a bit more about your experiences with the board and especially with how you set her up regarding voltages, BIOS settings and type and placement of the RAM?
With some revisions it was possible to upgrade to a Palomino, but it did require jumping through a couple hoops. Those boards could be very tricky to set up right and have all kinds of weird stability issues but once set up correctly along with getting a very beefy good quality PSU, these systems basically worked flawless. I loved working with these otherwise kinda boring looking boards! 😁
Good memories having spend hours upon hours with these boards 😀
Please feel free to indulge us with some visual pleasure (plz gib us pics lolz 😜 )
