  • Excerpt: Ich habe dieses Board schon 1000 mal in unserem Laden verbaut und habe es auch deshalb für meinen "Server" ausgewählt. Bestückt habe ich es mit einem 500er K6-2 von AMD. In verbindung mit meiner ATI Grafikkarte läuft das System wie blöd. Der Einbau des Board gestalltet sich reinbungslos.
  • Pros: Null Errors
  • Cons: K6-2 ? Gibts den eigentlich noch zu kaufen?
