I have this board with an AMD 1600+ XP chip and KingMax PC2700 memory.

It seems to be a nice board although my mouse connector is shorted (I use the USB instead).

I just bought one, the only problem seems to be when you have PC2700 running @ 333. It has a little quirk with this new chipset. Soltek is working to solve the problem. If you run the Memory @ 266 it runs fine. Stable xp 1800 @150fsb

Question ,
How can you change the speed of the RAM without the speed of the FSB ?

I'm running Crucial PC2100 RAM
and I'd like to see if this can handle higher speeds

Hmmm, I was going from my memory because I don't have the Soltek running anymore. I got in a copper block last week and tried to setup water cooling over the weekend. A hose fitting had a really small leak :eek: (more of a moist spot actually). Thank God that I was checking frequently nothing got wet. So this coming weekend I'm gonna take it down and re-do it.

Well I did end up buying this board also,and so far I am not impressed with it,with my CPU unlocked it dont seem to like the lower multipliers at all,runs well @ 11.5 or higher,but I like the multiplier low so I can up the FSB,but so far I have had no luck at all:(
