    Post Asus p5a-b mobo, any good?

    Has anyone had experience with the Asus p5a-b motherboard. Im looking into getting it for my 400mhz amd k6-2 upgrade. It measures approx. 8" x 8" which is perfect for a mobile install.
    Heres the info: http://www.asus.com/products/Motherb...5a-b/spec.html
    Thanks!

    Thumbs up

    I've never used it myself, but I've not heard a single bad thing about Asus motherboards.

    I have a P5A in one of my home PCs. The only problem I have is clocking my 450 AMD to 450. It has been running at 400 since I purchased it. Tryed ram, bios updates you name it. Thats been a while so who knows the maybe some new patches for it or my cpu could be bad or falsely rated. Hope this all helps....

    Cool

    It is an excellant board up to 450MHz. I've sold a bunch of them, and I have on in my main machine at home.
