Topic: SiS 530 chipset question re 133Mhz FSB
Replies: 30

Didn't know of any sis530 board with AGP support. Anyway, from my experience I can say that 133MHz is by far not easy to get stable, atleast not on my Gigabyte board. I tried different cpu's and different mods, it just wouldn't do it. Fast, hmm, it's more than decent, certainly when applying the reg...

What about using a TEC?

Rev 1.3 here, shouldn't that be better? :P

ICS 9248BF-81 PLL?

Yes, that's me. Did you came across one of my testing projects? :P Drop a message if you feel like there is anything missing ;) EDIT: yeah well, for the moment I've lost hope on getting FSB133, just installed a TEC cooler and see if I can boot at 333Mhz or higher. XP installs really take ages on the...

Some superpi results using 256mb ram and Pentium 166MMX... Sometimes the superpi results differ greatly, you can easily gain/loose few seconds by just rerunning the test. Best results were obtained after shutting down most XP services and by setting the maxmem tweak. P5A is really fast compared to t...

Indeed, anyone knows which registry setting to look out for?

K6 cpu doesn't make it into Windows either. At 124MHz FSB the setup can run few tasks but doesn't seem to be 100% stable, at 133MHz the memtest software instantly crashes upon start.

You have the Gigabyte board? GA-5SMM? How did you disable the onboard VGA? Maybe you ment 'unused', meaning you use a PCI videocard. Well, so have I. Will give the K6 another shot but I think I already tried that one.

Has anyone found a registry setting which reads/writes the Host/PCI devider?

124MHz works too, 133MHz boots but not stable. I have Pentium MMX 166 and 200 MHz. Both 166MHz versions I have here can do 300MHz on this board, 133x2 (266MHz) is no go but 124x2 works too. The memory is 133MHz CAS 2 rated and I know it can do 150MHz for sure (with increased voltages). Also have K6-...

Altering +5V voltage no big succes yet, disabled the tagram by disconnecting the ground pin but that did not help either. More test results later :wink:

Since there will be pull-up/-down resistors needed in order to set the correct binary status for those trapping pins it might be just possible to find a spot on the mainboard where we can add a VGA-enable jumper. Without circuit drawings we will never find it though, to many resistors around the chi...

No luck with disabling the L2 cache. I got stuck with Gigabyte and ASUS boards based on the Alladin 5 chipset and I found 8ns tagram too, I don't think we'll ever find faster tagram which is pin compatible. Then again, I don't believe the tagram is holding me back, 125MHz (8ns) to 133MHz is 'only' 8...

You really should take a look at the following FSB overclocking database: http://holicho.lib.net/wcpuidv3/wcpuidv3.htm It's "a bit" outdated but the ASUS TUSL2-C and Abit ST6 are roughly the best clocking boards out there, do note that it might need special voltage modifications. As far as...

Yes but it took ages, didn't know if the system actually hanged during boot or if it was still working. Did a reboot then and tried some other stuff, didn't really had enough time with the board yesterday :)
Soon I'll pick up an P5A and have it compared with the GA-5SMM, maybe we learn something :)

Hey I found the SDT sb61l256bs-8 chip on my GA-5SMM rev1.3 too, it's TAGRAM for sure. The "-8" at the end makes me believe it is 8ns static RAM which is only up for 125MHz. I googled for TAGRAM datasheets and found a chip which is roughly as old as the SDT chip, it should be pin compatible...

Hey DonPedro, When you say fail, did your system not boot at all? Because mine does but it crashes during WinXP boot. I does boot all way op to the dualboot menu, that's why I think some extra voltage might be enough. About the chips, the 7mm by 2-3mm silver shining oval device you talk about is in ...
