Both Motherboards from ASUS Overclocked. The CPU is 2.26GHZ. P4B533 w/ DDR333 while P4S533 w/ DDR 400. Which combo will run faster??? Or if you have any commend or experience with those boards, please posted here. Thx

The P4S533 with DDR400 will probably be faster. With a P4S533 and DDR400 at the most aggressive timing, ~2900MB/s or so will be possible in SiSoft Sandra. That's assuming you don't overclock. If you do, you can get your scores all the way up to 3400MB/s without lowering the memory ratio.

Is P4S533 stable? If I don't see any negative post, I think I will go for P4s533. It cost lots less then P4B533

Yes, the P4S533 is stable. In fact, it's one of the preferred motherboards for the Pentium 4, if you're considering overclocking. With DDR400, it's still a bit under PC1066 RDRAM performance, but with a slight overclock, it would outperform PC1066 for quite a bit less.

I'm running a P4S533 with Mushkin DDR400 Ram. At 133FSB and mem ratio of 4:6, it runs rock solid with a Sandra mem score of 2915. I've only had the board for 2 days, so I have more work to do, but the only major problem that I see with it is the lack of ability to lock the PCI/AGP speeds. With auto mem settings, when the PCI clock goes above 38 the board craps out. (One other thing...there's no way to change the Vagp with either jumpers or a BIOS option, and the utility to do it that came with my MSI Ti4400 card just doesn't work at all.)

What CPU do you have in there? If it's a P4 1.6A then I encourage you to raise the FSB to 150MHz.
