The last few people to rate this board (that also left comments) had this to say:
Sabin Perkinssaid: Actually, this is a great board with poor documentation. I have a FC-PGA Celery 566 running at 850MHz (the board thinks it's a PIII!) and the whole setup seems pretty stable. C'mon Transcend - how about a fleshed out paper manual!
Neville Jurgensensaid: Great board - poor documentation! Stable and fast!
Mingsaid: Very pleased with TS-AVE3 performance and upgrade path. Could use better documentation but still very easy to install. Using Celeron 566 and system seems very responsive.
