I have the same motherboard but its collecting dust asus sk8n with a gig of registered corsair xms ram pc3200 and a fx-53.I have not touched it in over 6 years.
Did you happen to get a dual core working on it?I researched recently a 1008 bios was the newest possibly custom that I came across JAE reminded me.
Ill yank it from the case and mail it to you if ya really want it,never upgraded the bios ever,even have the box it came in,with a manual too:)It replaced my ecs k7s5a that started life with a 900tbrd then a 1400tbrd nows its still chugging along with a 2400xp at my work.But since my 9800pro died in the 2400xp i put the x800xt in it from the fx53 setup, card hard artifacts in 3 days and that with a ArticCooling AM cooler on it and the paste was still good since i ripped it apart to see why it died so quickly.Now i am running a rage pro 128mb whoo hoo
Throw me a number you would be willing to pay plus shipping, it would include the fx-53 cpu+ a 4800x2 AMD stock heatpipe heatsink and mem.The 4800x2 was my upgrade over the fx53 But that was water cooled with dual x1800xts in crossfire with that goofy dongle setup with a dedicated master card plus the slave card.I remember that memory costing around 500$ for 2 512 sticks "PM me if interested".I am going to use the case over for a cheap htpc.Its a coolermaster centurian 5 i think. All tool less nice for the day,Still worth using in my book.Heck it just might hold my current 2600k, once ivy bridge comes out and its worth it to upgrade my cpu on my current GB board.
JAEs suggestion is way more powerful then a single core though but kids like to play mine ran 24/7 at 2.6-2.7ghz no prob
