Its not like components found in trash after 20 years in rain dont still work flawlessly. I did play some games on it, but I really can’t remember if it had any particular issues that weren’t because of the semi-randomness with which this system was put together 98SE was autopatched iirc, harddrive was suspended DIY-style, can’t remember what sound solution I used. The one defective memory module was the reason why the computer didn’t start. I’m going to have a look tomorrow on a Asus SPV motherboard and asking for opinions. I have also tried with different memory module combinations, no effect. I have heard similar experiences from other people and actually thought it was the usual case with those chips. Whats missing in your collections?

ASUS Sp97-v Socket 7 at Motherboard 200mhz Mmx & RAM
It was one of my earlier rigs completed and was more a testbench for some experiments. This site hosts no abandonware.
Please advice if you have experience of similar problems. If you want a non-super 7 board i would look for an intel tx or hx board. You can teach a man to fish and feed him for life, but if he can’t handle sushi you must also teach him to cook. The experience completely turned me off SIS. Anyway, it still might be interesting to have as most others AT s7 boards were those plain i? Capacitors look okay and I have not found any other defects either.
This would make it good for running some of the weirder Cyrix chips or just for overclocking of Pentiums. I haven’t deliberately owned another of that vintage or newer SIS board since even though I heard later chipsets were okay.
There are problems with the motherboard and have not found the reason. Board index All times are UTC. If you want a good socket 7 board that can do it all i would go for a super socket 7 board as it supports every single socket 7 cpu including the k, k at full speed mhz frontside bus and has an agp slot.

My retro rigs old topic Interesting Vogons threads links to Vogonswiki Report spammers here! For the most of the time, the screen is black when powering on, but sometimes it manages to start.
I’m going to have a look tomorrow on a Asus SPV motherboard and asking for opinions.
It just showed 64 megabytes. The AT power supply voltages are also in okay as I checked them.

Return to General Old Hardware. Wouldn’t always get there. If it had been very unstable, I probably would’ve remembered it, but I suppose these could be troublesome in certain configurations. Is it worth buying this one? Opinions here may or may not be different but to aasus it is not a bad board.
I have also tried with different memory module combinations, no effect. But i also have an Awus spv board in one of my systems and it did surprise me.
There was a note on it saying that it had flaky video and floppy port. I think one of the main reasons I never put it together again after I had moved and had everything stores in boxes was because the old harddrive I used in that rig was just so damned loud!
The price will probably be between euros, so it’s not very much. There has to be always two or four memory modules. I don’t remember specifically if it was flickering or a color issue aasus what exactly, but it was some kind of problem like that. s9p7
Only rebooting would make it change hue. What issues could it cause? Whats missing in your collections?
