I had a GA-6VTXD, but unfortunately it was completely dead.
Currently I have a build with an ASUS P2B-DS 1.06 with a pair of 1000/100 slot cpus (yes, i was lucky to get them some years ago), so it's running with stock speeds.
When the project Tyan Tiger 200T is finished I will try to get two more duallies up and running: GA-6VXD7 and GA-BXDS.
About 15 years ago I bought 10 dual boards cheap when nobody wanted them. Unfortunately two were not recoverable and 4 boards went to friendly people from our forum who recapped the other boards for me.
So this still left me 4 boards I am currently experimenting with.
The ASUS is rock solid and is currently acting as part time non-professional backup recovery server for old media (various tape drives, ZIP, etc.), running under Windows 2000 and Debian.
The TYAN Tiger 200T is now also up and running, but will probably see some minor hardware changes (putting the second hdd on IDE channel #2, installing some fan, etc.).
hmmm, I wonder if the P2B_D 1.06 can handle 1gz 133 Coppermines, I have to do the mod to it so I can set the pci/agp dividers correctly. (Asus P2B-DS Rev 1.06 FSB Modification)
And yea them 100FSB P3s are super hard to get now.
