Hello Everyone! My name is Victor, i'am from Russia, so don't be a mad about my language (I studied French at school, but .. I forgot it: D).
So this is my history about that build.
A friend called me at one moment - he is talking about an old PC that he wants to take to the trash, but maybe i check him i find some interesting stuff. And Yes, i find 😊
Is was be AMD K6-2 500+ AFX, DFI P5BV3+ (forget revision) 32 + 64 mb pc100 RAM, AGP S3 Savage 3D card and Ensoniq 1370 PCI Sound Card, and typical case for then time.
So i change fan one the CPU, make some overclock for 550 mhz, turn on the 100 mhz FSB, find PC133 256 Mb Ram, and Voodoo 3 1000. But is not a end of my story 😁
I starting reading about super socket 7 platform, searching information, (other thanks for Phills Coumputer Lab). Some time later i already know about K6-3+ CPU's, about motherboards with FSB around 120-125 mhz... And i want build PC with this stuff. So i try find this... And for six months... This is what I built at the moment.
AMD K6-3+ ATZ@400 mhz 1.6 V (embedded CPU) (22$) overclocked to 575 mhz (115x5) 2.2V
ASUS P5A-B with 120 mhz FSB (20$)
Same 256 Mb of Ram
Brand new OEM AGP Voodoo 3 3000 card (50$)
Thermaltake Chrome Orb (5$)
Hitachi 30 Gb Hard Disk
In this momen i try find the Aureal Vortex 2, and think about wich is best settings - 1) Don't change overclocking congfig - 115*5 with L3 cache on the board, and stock Voltage on Chipset and AGP (3D Mark 99 = 8700 Cpu Marks) or 2)120*5 without L3 cache (Windows does not load until you turn off L3 Cache in BIOS) and with 3.8V voltage on Chipset and AGP (i think is too much) (3D Mark 99 = 9200 Cpu marks). What you think Guys?
P.S About HDD - waiting the chinesse converter MSATA to IDE, want try to use MSATA SSD in this build))
AMD K6-3+ ATZ 400 1.6V@550 2.1V on DFI P5BV3+ rev.B on 100 mhz bus with 128 PC133 RAM + VooDoo 3 1000 16mb Ram
