One ridiculous one is an 820 board, complete with slot 1 CPU and 1 GB RDRAM. I keep it around because it's got a really good FDC onboard. Has a couple of ISA slots, too, but ISA DMA doesn't work right. The other, I think is a VIA chipset with Socket 370 CPU and not particularly noteworthy.

    Right after the P4 era, I converted to AMD and haven't looked back since.
    I do not think the 820 supports DMA over isa. I recall the 815 being the same way. But yes anything over 100mhz fsb is out of spec for a 440 chip set and you do run the risk of limited stability even if the motherboard manufacturers says it can do 133mhz fsb.

    The 820 uses the NSC ISA bridge chip, so I don't know the specifics of the implementation. However, it would seem to me that if a chipset supports a floppy controller and EPP, that ISA DMA support would almost be a given--unless you were dealing with a group (and Intel is full of these) who says "nobody uses ISA anymore". I got pretty much the same statement when I contacted them about their 82077AA-1 FDC chip screwing up FM support. "Nobody uses FM anymore"--the original 82077 supported it fine.
