    I got this 3rd AX6BC v2.30 from unwanted found in bin. I build all come
    together from my unwanted hardware stuff like video, ram , hdd , cd etc i
    take as risk but guess what? it run so beautiful on Windows XP - i'm happy
    always faithful with AX6BC.

    First thing i notice BIOS is v2.30 this model is lot older than mine. i make
    bios flash to v2.59.

    it run all day WITHOUT problem use heavy with network all 100% perfect
    working and slight smoother than mine one :)

    Yes, bx chipset is nice.

    I had a ax6bc. I modified it with promise harddisk controller, ata100.
    Further also tualatin celeron 1300 on an adapter. That worked fine.

    I can recommend the CMD ata133 controller from Silicon Image. It costs
    25 $ and runs fine with windows XP. I still have 2 IBM slot1 with 1300
    MHz tualatin celeron and this controller.

    The slot-T adapter will serve you well.

    www.upgradeware.com

    The bios v.2.59 does not contain microcodes for tualatin: 06B0 to
    06B4.

    explains how to patch the bios with such smal files. The easiest is to
    lend the cpucodes.bin from another aopen bios with it: the mx3st has
    them.

    best regards

    Mine too, though I went with the retail 1.2. 512mb pc100, Promise Ultra100
    disk controller, WD 80GB HD. I'm sure there are faster computers out
    there, but this ol' BX is totally fine for what I do - redhat runs like a
    champ.
