    I know people have used up to Athlon XP 1600 ut what is the fastest
    Duron processor anyone has tried on the board?

    Some processors are just getting to hard to find at reasonable prices

  2. Mike,
    Greetings and hallucinations from just north of Fantasy Land (Washington,
    The Tyan website mentions the fastest Duron as the 1.1GHz model. I have
    heard reports of people running faster CPUs, I.E. the Athlon 1800+, but that
    is outside the range for the approved CPUs. At this stage in its life, it
    might behoove you to get a new system. Unfortunately, with computers it is
    such a short time dancing upon the stage before you are replaced with a
    newer, faster model.

    That is true, but this board os so solid it does a great job as a
    development web server platform and media server for my house.
    What I am doing doesn't need a powerhouse, I havea faster system for that.
    I found a friend with a 1.2g Athlon so I think for $20 I will put that
    in and call it good.

  4. Mike,

    I've used a XP 2200 successfully on a 2390B - it was not recognized by
    name by the bios, but ran at the right speed and was very stable. (It had
    to do a lot of "seti'ing"...)

    And I can say the same as you - it's a rock solid board. I started with
    TYAN with a Trinity 100AT, then the Trinity 2390B and now I'm running a
    Trinity KT400 S2495ANRS with an Athlon XP 3000 - still on the rock solid
    side of life...

    Best regards
