Re: AMD K6 3DMARK, aiming for stars.

I did a K6-2+ to K6-3+ mod yesterday, and as I was testing the 'new & improved' CPU on a Gigabyte GA-5AA rev 3.2, I realized that this board got a pretty substantial boost in performance with those extra 128 KB of L2 cache that the CPU gained. The board's performance was pretty underwhelming with a …

Its changeable is it? To make it fair and more accurate it must be set to default, are you talking about …

Re: AMD K6 3DMARK, aiming for stars.

@Repo Man11, What happens to your score and or stability if you remove the SATA card? I must also look into cloning as I am also so tired of reinstalling XD Maybe try WIN95 on the VIA? I've never tried it without the Promise IDE card, so I don't know. Edit: I pulled it to see if it made any …

Re: AMD K6 3DMARK, aiming for stars.

I’m wondering if addiing extra capacatance to the vrm capacitors wouldn’t help things along on some of our boards. There is room on the back… 🤔 I think the noisy vrms are the plages of many (but not all) of our overclocks. The caps after the vrm going into the core should just be there to dampen …

Re: AMD K6 3DMARK, aiming for stars.

I think the VIA motherboard is faster with the two ram sticks because of 4 way bank interleave. Your CPU does not want to do 112*5.5? How big is your CPU cooler? And did you try to set it at 112*5 and then in windows use CTU tweak to set it on 5.5? That is not a bad score for that clock speed on a …

Re: AMD K6 3DMARK, aiming for stars.

Sphere478, If I were you I would rather spend my time to figure out how to make ATI Radeon cards work fast on SS7 :D Its worth it trust me. Another performance tip from my side. If you like Need For Speed Porsche then install the directX that came on the disc of Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2 (DX8.1) …

Re: AMD K6 3DMARK, aiming for stars.

BTW, i didn't know about the internal Tag chip. I checked with my p5a 1.06 (revision G) and indeed that board has no Tag chip. I always wondered if Asus made a mistake or the revision G was wrong so it couldn't run the k6+ at full speed (it runs very slow on the 1.05 and 1.06 boards). Since your J- …
