Re: PCCHIPS M599LMR Test

You will find a lot of information how to get the best out of a SiS530 board from another thread at k6plus here . the discussion will start from getting it work at all to 133mhz fsb, setting up of bios and chipset registers (from within windows via wpcredit/set -tool) to finally reach 600mhz cpu, 40...

Re: P5A-B rev1.05

So you did start with Bios settings "default" and also continued with default values?
If so this might be the reason for not reaching the expected benchmark numbers ...

Thank you for reporting! :)

Re: P5A-B rev1.05

Stedman, please also report back here with benchmark data comparing 1.04 / 1.05/6 mainboards once you applied the mod.
Thanks!

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

Forget it!
Even if you get passed the electric conditions, which I doubt, and passed the pci-bridge necessity, which I doubt even more, you will have to use drivers version 6x.xx and up. And this means you will not be able to run any directx/direct3D game or benchmark. This for sure.

Re: SiS530 @133MHz (GA-5SMM/Soyo 5SSM) setup, benching, tweaking

Hello Stadman, nice to hear from you again! Last summer I suddenly had the urgent need to "play" again with my ss7-boards but ran into many troubles. my great pci-vga card (nvidia 5200, 128bit, 250/200mhz) needs its capacitors replaced and also suddenly my open-gl sub-system does not work any more. ...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

First of all I apologize for not having visited this thread again earlier - I got no email from k6plus that new postings are here. Second: Congratulations !!! You infected me two weeks ago and I played around again with my old systems the last 2 weeks and also managed to get 4100-something points. B...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

I am using ali apg 1.66 (w98). If need be I can provide both drivers (ali, nvidia). Just let me know ... Today I checked my w2k and xp installation of my p5a. both systems sit on the same harddrive together with win98. In win98 everything is fine, but as I said earlier: both w2k and xp have serious ...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

OH, I am surprised to hear that. I never got satisfactory results on w2k/xp with cpu-speeds higher than 450mhz. Also, did you install servicepack 4(a) on w2k? and svp3 on xp? Did you install 2k/xp with special treatment of power management? My memory serves me bad here but I have the impression that...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

what does ali agp tool say ("Status")? edit: Also, when you run win2k or xp, please check your cpu-speed (also fsb) with cpu-z - tool. I remember having troubles under xp/2k - the fsb-speed jumps between 100 and 50 mhz. I never found out why this happens. How much memory speed do you get with everes...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

yes, I was wrong in my recollection.

What is not working with ga-5ax mainboard is AGP 2x. It works in AGP 1x mode only.

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

I haven't touch my k6-system for about 6 years now but I will try to help you. First things which come into my mind if I remember correctly - the ga 5ax 5.2 does not allow "GAT mode 2" which deals with AGP handling, it only offers GAT mode 1; the p5a board does both; mode 2 gives a boost of at least...
