Re: Gigabyte GA-586DX Dual Socket-7 Board

guys I have the Tyan AT version of this board s1564 and can confirm 512mb is possible with 4x128mb sticks. since basically the boards are very similar with chipset and dual processor I assume 4x128 will work also for you.

Re: WOW...I'm blown away, this site is STILL up!

Not very active but still here. I figure it's worth keeping around for the info in all of the old threads even if there's little new activity. Might help someone out. I think the motherboard for my K6-III+ needs to be recapped, it's been dead for a while. I'll have to take another look at it some d...

Re: Anyone try SSD on Socket 7 system yet?

Old post, but shame on people for not replying to you lol. Yes!! I’m going to be trying it in the next week or two. In fact I picked up a pci to pcie16x adapter, and plugged a pcie 16x to m.2 nvme and a 128gb nvme into it. I don’t expect it to be directly bootable. So I will use a boot loader on a c...

You could also try more modern faster cards and try a glide wrapper. I’m going to be doing pci on my build. A 5500, 6200, and gt610 ar...

Crazy k6 3+ build

First off, thanks for the add. Thought I would share my build here. Look forward to your guys thoughts :-) So this build needs a little bit of back story. Back in 2004-2005 I came across a motherboard that I thought was pretty cool. At the time I was collecting socket 7 chips for fun and decided to ...
