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 ...

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 w...

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

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 o...

Re: FOR DonPedro

hello muhamed, I am sorry to tell you that I am not in the position to solve your problem from a distance - your problem could be related to all and nothing. I am not an expert per se for all nvidia-related problems - I learned a lot and know a lot about using nvidia-cards on socket-7 mainboards, bu...

Re: Attention Don Pedro

I would like to help but you I have no information on who, where, why, ... anyway, maybe you can relay something to the unknown person: nforce 520/560 is a chipset (made by nvidia), not a grafics cards. there was a time when nvidia competed in that market .... so when one sets up a system based on a...
