1)What is SB-Link in details?
2)How run the boards with 133MHz bus the PCI,ISA,AGP(in MHz)?
3)Are there such boards (Socket 7, Slot 1)?

1) SB-Link is for PCI Sound Blaster sound card, some motherboard comes with a SB-Link for these soundcard to solve the compatibility problem in DOS mode.
2) At 100MHz FSB - PCI = 33MHz (same as 66MHz bus), AGP = 66MHz.
    At 112MHz FSB - PCI = 37MHz (same as 75MHz bus), AGP = 75MHz.
    At 133MHz FSB - PCI = 41MHz (same as 83MHz bus), AGP = 83MHz.
3) Slot 1 - Asus P2B, Abit BX6 etc....
    Socket 7 - Iwill XA100, Magic-Pro MP-586VIP4 etc...

1) I wanted more details on HOW work this "in DETAILS"?
2) OK, but the ISA? You say the PCI multiplicator is /3 and AGP multiplicator /1.5, are there a boards with option/jumper to change this to PCI /2 and AGP /1?
3) Are there Socket7 boards with 133MHz bus and STABLE booting/running?

* I am new with the scoring system and don't know how much points I should give. So if you think there are not *engough*(bad spelling :)) or too much inform me on ( mailsend@softhome.net )

1) SB-Link is a pin connector on the motherboad to connect to the SB-Link cable to your PCI soundcard.  Lots of Dos program when running with PCI soundcard will have problem, and it's corrected by using SB-Link.
2) Some socket 7 motherboad has jumper to allow you to run your CPU at 100MHz while the Ram is locked at 66MHz, by doing this, you can actually use the current EDO Ram instead of the more expensive PC100 SDRam.  But as for PCI and AGP, to my knowledge, there's no board able to do this.  I'm not sure about ISA, but it should be half of the PCI speed.
3) I haven't heard of a 133MHz socket 7 board.  Anyway, 133MHz is not advised on socket 7 or slot 1.  If you're running an AGP card and 133MHz FSB, you're AGP card is running at 83MHz, it's way too high!

Points given are all of your own chose, usually more points more people will answer. :P
