There's nothing at-all wrong with that board.  It's bar-none the lowest-
latency, most reliable Pentium II platform out there.  My roommate in
college had one, and I was consistently impressed with how smoothly that
box ran.  It degraded under load like Real Hardware and was a -lot-
faster than P2s on other boards at the same clockrate.

It is, however, as much mainframe as the Mac IIfx in my closet.
