I build another Windows XP system for me based on the X58 chipset.
My goal is running a Voodoo 5 6000 PCI (rebuild of corse..) on a PCI-X Slot with 66MHz as i can get same speed as AGP with the option using "newer" hardware.
I still dont have the voodoo, and i dont even know if this work out at the end. Anyway when not i use it as very nice XP build..
So after some research i choose the Asus Workstation board because it has PCI-X Slots with 66MHz.
The 990x is really nice CPU. Managed to run with stock voltage @ 4,5Ghz prime stable under water max 65*C.
I also cooled the chipset active with a small noctua.
