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

Don Pedro, I'm struggling to achieve your results with a Ga5-ax 5.2 and a K6-III+@605 (5.5x110). I'm using the same vga chip, a 5900XT from Leadtek, bot I can't really match your results. I obtain 3400 with XP SP3, 2500 (ouch!) with win2000 SP4 and with Win98SE and your drivers I get something less ...

Re: Weird problem with BF2 input on K6-3+

I have a K6-3+ that was fully functional before it shows problem with BF2 settings. When BF2 is left open, the CPU boots but cannot finish booting OS. When BF2 is pulled high the CPU won't boot. It's only normal when BF2 is pulled low, which means the multiplier can only be 4~5.5x. The motherboards...

Re: GA5-AX + Promise TX2 + 9800 pro AIW problem...

Hi Jim, I can confirm that my AIW 9800SE is working on my GA5-AX board, I installed the 1.6.6 NGO optimized drivers (6.6 based) and modded it to 9800pro (8 pipelines enabled). It can work with AGP 2X. Normal desktop and 3dmark2001SE tested. Now I need the modded bios or WPcredit with a PCR file for ...

Re: GA5-AX + Promise TX2 + 9800 pro AIW problem...

Little update:

Catalyst 6.6 and 6.1 worked.

Now I'm with 6.6, NGO optimized, but I'm not sure about optimal performance.

Is there a way to enable interleaving with ga5ax?

Re: GA5-AX + Promise TX2 + 9800 pro AIW problem...

As I expected, the latest legacy drivers (and Omega ones), won't install properly.
The system reboot after installation endlessly without opening xp.

I think I have to find some older version of driver.

Any suggestions?

Re: GA5-AX + Promise TX2 + 9800 pro AIW problem...

I downloaded the TX2 PLUS newest BIOS. It's not the same model I own, mine lacks the ATA port, but I trayed it anyway and luckily it works. The bios now correctly load and I able to enter XP. The 9800SE AIW is detected by XP and installed automatically but for some reason the resolution is stuck, I'...

Re: GA5-AX + Promise TX2 + 9800 pro AIW problem...

Thank you Jim. I read the discussion and it appears that Radeon cards above 8500 won't happily install on a super7 system. Still, I don't understand that behaviour of my card or of the whole rig. I'll find another agp card, but if there are other suggestions on bios settings, Please let me know. Mea...

GA5-AX + Promise TX2 + 9800 pro AIW problem...

Of all the problems I could imagine to step in to, this is the last one I could. I'm setting up a system with a Ga5-ax f4 and a promise tx2 SATA card for a 74Gbyte Raptor HLFS. I was waiting for a 9800se AIW and meanwhile I installed winXP with a Rage PCI card. No problem at all. I installed a USB 2...

This could be a nightmare search... Can you direct me to a specific model?

Meanwhile, I tested 2 sticks of 256Mbyte PC133 CL2 RAM Single sided with no luck.
Same issue, double amount of ram at post and system hangs.

I'm lurking around this site sometimes (where the heck is the DL section?? I need pcr files!). Same lurking with my Ga-5ax board, with a promise SATA controller TX2 and a Raptor (very fast) and a 9800SE on the way. I tried 3 stick of ram PC133 512megs with strange results. One stick of 512Mbyte is r...

I see that your FIC is an AT motherboard, but still I don't understand why your R9250 won't work. I successfully tested an FX5950 Ultra on a MVP3G5 (MVP3 same as yours) and on a GA-5AX (ALi). The best balanced card (performance/watt) was an FX5700. Maybe the electrical scheme of the AT standard prev...

I don't think it is a good idea.
It's an ATZ, stay away from it if you want to overclock.

A 1,6V chip doesnt' like 0,4V overvolt and 50% overclock very much.
It's a very good low power chip but that's all.

Stick on a 1.8V chip or better a 2.0V, I think you can easily find one in USA.

I check the forum every two or three days, just to watch if there is something new.
I' ve nothing new to say anyway! So I'm silent!

BTW I'm not stopping messing around my K6 rig, GA5AX now.
The MVP3G5 has been sold.

In fact right now I'm searching for a PCI 2.1 SATA2 card, don't know if it exist.

There is a couple of discussions regarding the best VGA card you can plug into a K6 machine. Just use the search function. 9700 and 9500 will work with no probs (like Geforce FX5950 and down) I doubt you can use the 9800pro, maybe a 9800SE@PRO but I don 't guarantee. For the 9600XT there is a no go,...
