AT form PII BX boards for OveR_cloCkiNg????
I'm looking at replacing my current LX(Read PC Chips) board with something a little better. I'd like a AT format board that is good for overclocking, voltage/bus/etc..
Also, does any body know the most I'm likely to get on that board with a PII (Klamath, non ECC) 266? I plan to run the board set at 83mhz with an Asus Tnt and PC100 ram.
Any advice appreciated in advance...
First. Here are couple of sites you'll want to visit: www.tweakit.com, www.bxboards.com, and www.fastgraphics.com
There some hardcore Techs over at voodooextreme.com This site along with sharkyextreme.com has up-to-the minute info of many things. Fast hardware and excellent games seems to be thier passion. Good links to othe places.
Anyhow, I wont say what you can expect from overclocking a 266. I overclocked the bus speed on a 400MHz PII 12MHz (from a 100MHz bus to 112MHz, leaving the actual CPU speed at 400MHz) to acheive a stable clock speed equal to slightly over 450MHz. Check the infomation section at tweakit.com. You may get a better idea there.
I had alook at the sites and the Tyan seems quite good, the problem is I live in the UK and it retails for 130 pounds. Given that I can pick up an Abit BX-6 for 70 pounds and an ATX case for 35... ;p ... I think I need to be looking at a different manufacturer. Any ideas?
Do these large online retailer such as necx.com and buycomp.com ship internationally? If they do, the price on that board is around $130 US. get it from them.
Gigabyte makes a PII Baby-AT form factor board also.
Tyan Computer's S1830S Tsunami AT supports the PII/PIII and Celeron processors. It has connections for both AT and ATX power supplies. Jumper select CPU clock speeds from 233MHz to 500MHz. Bios selectable bus speed up to 112MHz. This is a fast inexpensive stable board with the features you are looking for.
As to your second, you may want to be more concise as to what your asking. It's a bit unclear.
What I meant above was, what sort of speed could I hope to acheive overclocking my pII 266 processor on that board...
FIC makes the 6100 with onboard sound.
there's a review of it at http://www.lostcircuits.com/motherboard/ficka6100
Eff it! Bought an ATX case and a BX6! My (new) 300A is running perfectly at 450/2.05 Volts... Happy Happy Joy Joy...
Set fire to the PC chips board...
Bully for you!
I have a Amptron bx motherboard, AT form. I run a retail celeron 266 under turbo mode set in the bios (which actually is 100mhz bus, instructions does not explain it though). It is stable. It comes with onboard sound card. No voltage adjustments. Nothing fancy, but does the job. US $95 at local discount shop. Before, that chip was really not very stable on my Abit bx6 board at 450 (4x112) anyways.
