S1837UANG-L Thunderbolt Review

2CPU has posted a review on the S1837UANG-L Thunderbolt. Here a snipped:
This board is designed around the 443GX, and does offer some Coppermine support, as I am sure this is going to be one of the first questions asked. If you have a Revision G or higher, 100 MHz Coppermine CPUs are supported. No support for any other speeds as far as Coppermines go. I did slap in a single P3-533B, but the system did not go anywhere with this chip in. The board has settings for 66, 75, 83, 100, 112, 124 and 133 so those looking to use this board in an overclocked configuration do have some potential. Had no problems getting a single P3-500 on the 112 fsb all the way into Windows 2000, anything higher would only post, and slapping in a 2nd CPU didn't allow 112 to go. I'm sure a little tweaking with voltage and cooling could help here, but on this board, the voltage can only be controlled by taping over various pins on the CPU, something I wasn't quite willing to do at this time, mainly because it's not my board and it does have to go back in working condition. This board supports the standard PII PIII CPUs as well as the Celeron line.
