Dolphin2 said: The P3B-F is a good mainboard but some of the features are not working very well...

Tom said: Great board though I miss the CPU throttle at standby feature. also the CPU temp reading is rather inaccurrate, but anyway do any mobos read it correctly, if they have that possibility. Really stable board, but the Core voltage fluctuates a lot; maybe tha

Ed Medlin said: Great mb with older BX technology. Stable and very easy to use. I run the 550e at 133mhz for 733 with a CL TNT2-Ultra without any problems whatsoever.

Remarks: Completely stable at 566 2.0v pretty stable at 577 (2.1-2.2v) (in games etc.) but crashes occasionally when multitasking (once every couple days or so). Can't wait to get my peltier and go for 600+!!

Comment: Well I have overclocked this MB with a P III 500 to about 650 MHz with stock cooling fan and pc 100 Memory. I am waiting for a new CPU fan and will buy some PC 133 memory. I will probably try soft FSB to achive a higher clock speed. It is a pretty good M/B. My system is a P3B-F with PC100 256 MB a P III 500 Overclocked to 560 MHz a Voodoo 3000 AGP 16 Mb Overcloked to 166 Mhz with a Socket 7 fan mounted on the heatsink. a 10.5 Gig 7200 UDMA66 Western Digital. a 56k 3com Modem and a 10/100 3Com Nic. Running dual boot with Win98 and 2000 Server and Professional. I have heard you will lose data at pci bus speeds above 37.5 So I don't really know if going beyond 112 Mhz clock will do any damage. We shall see.

Comment: most stable overclocking board I've used excellent as a cheap server board. I've installed it in a school with 500MB ram a celery 333a pushed to 416 and running NT server 4, it is as solid as anything!!!
