Just trying to go through my excessive stash of parts and trying to figure out what to get rid of.
Other than the odd board that supports low fsb values for speed limiting, is there any compelling reason to go with a Socket 5 or 7 build over a SS7 build?
Not really, since SS7 supports every CPU S7 does usually. And as a plus you have AGP in most cases. ATX S7 is really cool, since you can use those boards in literally any case.
