Working on an old school AMD Athlon 3200+ build for kicks and really want to get my hands on one of these motherboards. DFI Lanparty DFII Ultra B Problem is I cannot find a single one anywhere. Usually you can find used boards no problem but this one I can only assume owners kept for nostalgia. My current socket 462 motherboard looks nice but I absolutely cannot find any support for it. Anyway here is my setup.

Motherboard: Jetway FP-VAKT266-1 (google image search shows only 1 image)

CPU: AMD ATHLON XP 3200+ 2.20GHz (AXDA3200DKV4E)

Also have a AXDA3200DKV4D but I prefer the 4E for the 400MHz FSB.

CPU Cooler: StarTech Universal Intel P4/AMD Athlon Heatsink and Fan

StarTech Heatsink

CASE: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel

RAM: 2GB - 3GB DDR SDRAM 400MHz PC3200 (depending on motherboard)

A question in regards to the ram. when I look for 3x1GB kit they all run at PC2700 333MHz.

If I ran 3 single 1GB PC3200 sticks would they all run at 400MHz or 333MHz?

Thanks

Since its dual channel running 3 1gb sticks is slightly slower then running 2 1gb sticks. You might have to go tweek the voltage to get them to run at 400, but yes they will run at 400.

The DFI LANPARTY NFII ULTRAB seemed to fall victim to bad capacitors so even if you find one not sure you want one unless your willing to replace all the caps on it.

Thanks for the response. I just picked up a Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 for $10 and I'm happy with it.
