Jetway socket7 with K6-2 or K6-3?
Was reading through the pages and saw some of the threads discussing about the plugging in of the K6-2 or K6-3 on older socket7 or SS7 boards.
I'm currently using a Jetway 5TXC S7 board with K6-2 266 o/c to 300 using 66 x 4.5. The board would run at 75 x 4 but not 75 x 4.5 or the 83 Mhz bus.
I have a link to the manual here. I only save the more important pages so it loads faster. The file is 300+ Kb.
The board provides core vol of 2.1v and 2.2v.
1) Would it be possible to run any of the latest chips? If so, which version? I've flashed my bios (TXC02_01) and Jetway only did 1 revision for my particular motherboard.
2) The board did boot up and post at 333 or 337 (75 x 4.5) but did not get into windows successfully. I'm afraid it cant do anything above the 300 Mhz spec stated in the manual?
I'll be getting a V3 2k PCI on Sunday to help with the FPS in Counter-Strike. I'm currently using a V1.
The Rams are set to 60ns and the rest are pretty much default.
Is this an oem system? Or did u build it urself. If i were u I would upgrade the Mb and processor, they are pretty cheap now, If ur voltages support 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, and u have
at least a 75mhz bus u could probably get a k63 400 to run in it, but it wouldn't be worth it, best bet is to get a new mb and processor, Someone else here my be able to recommend a different alternative, but i believe an complete upgrade would be ur best bet.
freddy, yeah, I was thinking of going for the Duron and A7V combo but money wouldnt be coming in til 3 mths later. All poor students use back-dated equipment. ;P
scotter, thanks for the feedback. Will try to source for a K6-2 450 from Singapore, but I've heard they are out of stock and only the 500s are available for around US$62. If not, I guess I'll guess have to wait til I sell off the current system and earn some cash from part-time job to get my Duron.
