BX motherboard for coppermine!!! ???
Has anyone try out the MSI BXMaster?? just wondering how it is....
whats a stable BX motherboard for coppermine (p3-700)?? I dont intent to overclock it. do you think its better to get the atat/66 controller card or have one built onto the motherboard???
There is one review of the msi bx master in User Reviews here at sysopt. Unfortunately the one who posted it doesn't appear to know how to get the 133 speed his/her processor needs. A few others are using this board here, and it has 4 ide ports like the abit be6-2. (2 ata33 & 2 ata66)
However, there have been lots of posts here about problems getting the abit high-point ata66 drivers installed correctly. You might want to search here using "high point" (without the quotes) for those.
The Promise ata66 controller seems to work much better, and this is what the msi bx master has onboard. The ata66 ide's still come up as scsi devices, something to keep in mind whatever way you go.
thanks Ygor... i did read more reviews about the bxmaster on other message board. Many do state that the ata/66 on the board is much more stable than Abits. i also like the 4dimms.. heheh! just dont know if i have more money to fill them up.
The BX master is a great board so far as i have had it (2 weeks). Absolutely no problems getting my o/c celeron to fly. Probably the last bx board I will ever buy, and the expandibility of it really makes it a good choice. Having 4 ide channels really makes adding devices down the road easy, as does the 6 pci slots. No compatibility/quality issues yet. A little on the pricy side (140) but worth it.
