Features and Specs

As you can see, the 815E Pro 6337 is a very feature rich board. Not everyone will agree with the integrated features, but luckily these can be disabled. All motherboards that feature the 815 chipset will have this type of integration since the features exist in the ICH2 chip.

Also, what's not listed here is the ability to adjust the front side bus speed by 1MHz. This feature is great for any overclocker. Plus, if you have PC100 RAM, you can select a 133MHz and still have the memory clock at 100MHz. The same can be said for PC133 and a 100MHz bus. You can still operate the memory at 133MHz even if you have a 100MHz bus. If you plan to use a 66MHz bus with PC66 memory, then you may be out of luck. The 815 automatically sets the memory speed to 100MHz, even if the bus speed is at 66MHz.
Socket 370 for Intel(R) Celeron(TM) / Coppermine (FC-PGA) processors of 500, 550, 600, 633, 667 MHz and higher up to 866MHz.
