I'm thinking maybe at purchasing 4 of these since I actually have a second AP550 mobo at home (but sadly lacking the VRM for the second CPU, which means more $ particularly for shipping).
I have already modded one Tualatin for an Asus cubx (did the mod on the CPU) Problem running Asus CUBX at 133FSB with 1Gb RAM so working on the slotkeys should be much easier.
Btw, did you tried Win7 and 2Gb RDRAM on your machine?
Well, it should still be around €20 for 2 new in box MSI slotkets. Not a bad deal, in my book.
I have not tried W7 on this machine, I am quite happy with a Win 2000 and Win ME dual-boot at the time. I think the machine is perfect for a Win 2000 or Win XP rig.
About your mod: Vtt_PWRGD should not be connected to PWRGOOD. I know its all over the internet and it "works", but according to the datasheet;
"The PWRGOOD signal input is a 1.8 V signal level and must be pulled up to VCC_CMOS1.8 . The VTT_PWRGD is not 1.8 V tolerant and must be connected to VTT ( 1.25 V) . Other CMOS inputs (A20M#, IGNNE#, INIT#, LINT0/INTR, LINT1/NMI, PREQ#, SMI, SLP#, and STPCLK#) are only 1.5 V tolerant and must be pulled up to VCC_CMOS1.5 . The CMOS, APIC, and TAP outputs are open drain and must be pulled to the appropriate level to meet the input specifications of the interfacing device."

Unless you modify the supply going into the CPUs, your VTT will already be above spec at 1.5 V, there's no need to stress the CPU even further.
