    I checked it out and it doesn't quite seem to have the range of FSB's I was looking for, only 66/100/133... I need something that goes considerably higher, and preferable with close intervals, like the BF6 had...

    Try the Abit BE6-II... That's still my favorite board. Its the trusty old BX chip though, I don't know if you want that.

    Well although I love both the BF6 and the BE6-][ (still have one of each), the CUSL2-C is better. And I don't quite know where you got that 66/100/133 figure from, but that doesn't matter 'cause here's the complete fsb list

    66,67,68,69,70,71,72,73,74,75,76,77,78,79,80,81,82,83,84,85,86,87,88,89,90,91,92,93,94,95,96,97,100,102,103,104,105,106,107,108,109,110,111,112,113,114,115,116,117,118,119,120,121, 122,123,124,125,126,127,128,129,130,131,132,135,136,137,138,139,140,141,142,143,144,145,146,147,148,149,150,151,152,153,154,155,156,157,158,159,160,161,162,163,164,165,166,167,168, 169,170,171,172,173,174,175,176,177,178,179,180,181,182,183,184,185,186,187,188,189,190,191,192,193,194,195,196,197,198,199,200,203,205,210 and 216

    If you still don't think it has enough FSB settings I'll slap you

    Yeah, I dont get where you got that info. My bro has the cusl2-c and it has all the fsb settings you could possibly need. He has a 700e@1gig. What kind of chip is your? Slot1 or fcpga? If yours is a slot1 I recommend the be6-2. Own one and will never sell it.

    Well I have a celly 2 800 right now on a... get ready... BH6. I fried my BF6 a while ago and tried a VIA chipset board, hated it. But if that's the list, I think we have a winner. Is it a stable board? No damn clockgen overheating like with the P3V4X?
    Oh, and i also have an "old school" 500E (fc-pga) somewhere round here. And an even older school 300A (slot of course.
    Which do you think would perform better? The 800 or the 500? Thanks everyone, you've been a tremendous help!

    BTW, D|sEIMiNk I dunno, there's a 6 Mhz gap between 210 and 216... I may need those...

    Swedishlf, if you use and succeed to get it stable att FSB200+, then i'm required to slap you as well.

    Go for the CUSL2, it's a damn good mobo!!

    LOL... 200Fsb would mean like 50Mhz PCI with a 1/4 divider. I'm not sure if the CUSL2 has a 1/5 divider... but its a damn' good overclockers board any how....

    Yeah, speaking of, how are the dividers, AGP/PCI/RAM? Just out of curiosity, and are the boards hard to find?
