Conclusion: I'm trying to think of some problems I had with this board.. I can only think of a couple, and boy are they minor. The first 'problem' I have is the bootup speed. Before you even post - before the video card even posts - the board just sits there for about 5 seconds.. I have no idea why it does this, and I haven't found a way to stop it. Not a big problem though...
Excerpt: I bought this board because it takes 370 or FC-PGA chips and has a 133 front side bus. It is a fantastic board with lots of bus speeds, 4 USB ports, and a Windows based BIOS flash so you can't mess up a DOS one like i have before. My Celeron FC-PGA OEM chip did 850 right out of the box with a Golden Orb cooler. The CPU temperature never exceeds 32 C, it usually hovers around 29 C.
Conclusion: In conclusion, I LOVE this board, and I would recommend it to anyone building a PC based on a Socket 370 chip (Flip Chip P3's and Celeron II's, as well as the older Celerons). You'll have a fast stable board, AGP pro when you need it, a ton of overclocking options (including software FSB setting) and all the goodies you want, for a very acceptable price. Asus does it again!
Pros: Rock Solid, like most Apollo Pro 133a boards, TONS of FSB settings to play with in the BIOS, "True" 133 MHz support with a 1/2 AGP divider, Integrated ATA/66 support that really works, AGP 4x, Fast Writes, AGP Pro, when we need it, Ability to use PC100 RAM with a 133 MHz FSB, Awesome price (down to around $100), It's Fast!
Cons: RAM is still slightly slower than a BX board, Only one COM port is onboard, Slow bootup
