Woah, before I even PMed you, thanks!!!!!

Btw, I'm organizing the page with the list of Socket 370 motherboards with Tetrium, initially focusing on Tualatin and DDR boards. I ended up making a quick VC++ program to help me convert my spreadsheet into a color coded table. A shell script would've done the job but I'm more comfortable with c++, so it was just faster to do it this way.

Well, I think I'm done poiishing the page and the C++ app, so here you guys go:

List of Socket 370 motherboards

For everyone wanting to contribute, instead of editing the page you can also edit the spreadsheet on my OneDrive here. Either way is fine, I'll keep them in sync for the forseeable future. While the focus now are Tually and DDR boards, every motherboard is welcome.

I see the ASUS CUC2 I added to the s370 motherboard page has been added to your spreadsheet, did you add it to the spreadsheet by hand or is it done automatic?

Just to note, I've been busy yesterday to create a similar page for (Super) Socket 7 and I'm basically taking the table from the wiki s370 page and modifying the relevant data (replacing Tualatin support with K6-X+ compatibility and replaced the VIA C3 column with 100MHz FSB support). I'm not sure if for (Super) Socket 7 boards the ISA column is actually necessary, as I only seen one single Super Socket 7 board that doesn't have one.
Preferably I'd like to include a table with minimum official and/or undocumented minimum CPU voltage as this is usually the most important feature which determines if chips with 2.2v (like some of the K6 and MII and all K6-X's) will work in any specific board or not.
A column with AGP slot should also be added I think, as I've also seen ss7 boards with chipsets that do support AGP, but have an onboard GPU-chip along with memory chip soldered onto the board and forgoing the AGP slot itself (basically the AGP card is soldered onto the board and cannot be replaced with a dedicated AGP card).

Much of the data is still incomplete (like how many PCI slot and ISA slots these boards have but only a few I haven't figured out if they come in AT or ATX formfactor).

I already have a list ready to be added to the wiki as a list (first version will be orphaned, like I did with the s370 board page), like I did with the first s370 list before Alex converted it to the excellent table, but am considering to use the table present on the wiki to mod it into one for (Super) Socket 7.

I think it would make perfect sense to me to have the Jan Steunebrink modeed BIOS page included as an external link btw :)

@Tetrium sounds good. I have a few boards I can add once up.

Also of note I've just enabled uploading ZIP files, so if you want to upload non images/audio that is now possible.

By hand. If I knew how, I'd make it automatic xD

If you know how to code in Visual Studio (the free version is fine - it's what I use) you can just modify this quick piece of software I made. I just select the entire table in the spreadsheet (headers included), copy it to the clipboard then press the button on the app. It will process the clipboard and make the table. I hardcoded the references and the columns that are color coded, but it should'nt be hard to modify that.

I was never really good at programming, but I do know my way around modifying existing code. I was wondering how you did the colors.
I'll take a look, thanks :)

I've finally had time to work a bit on the "Interesting Socket 7 board list" and uploaded a first version to the wiki, but due to circumstances I had very little time to do a lot of work on the list.
It's uploaded here http://www.vogonswiki.com/index.php/Soc ... oard_Lists
My intent for this list is to provide a quick reference to all the more modern Socket 7 boards which include the following features:
-All Socket 7 boards that were made in ATX format
-All Socket 7 boards that include an AGP slot
-All Socket 7 boards which include official 100MHz FSB support

My intent is for this list to provide only boards which include any of the 3 features I mentioned above, mostly because the number of boards made in AT format is enormous.

I know that many interesting Socket 7 boards were made which are interesting in some way (like AT Socket 7 boards with the 430HX chipset, just to name a thing), but exclude any of the 3 mentioned features I listed here and I think these boards should be in a separated list as adding all of these boards into a single list will make the list very long and very hard to read.

I also taking into consideration something PCBONEZ mentioned earlier in another tread when he commented about the s370 list getting less practical to use when all s370 boards get listed there (and personally I think the point he made is an obvious one) and when the time comes that the s370 list becomes very long, I'll duplicate the total s370 motherboard list and modify the duplicate's list to include a narrower selection of boards (for instance, a separated list for s370 boards that include ISA and native Tualatin support (boards that will work with Tualatin using an adapter might get included later, as long as those boards also include an ISA slot)).

All this doesn't have to be done overnight, but I think progress is slowly being made :)

Hi All,

I'm just about to do some upgrades to Vogons Wiki so it will be down for a small period of time. I'll update once complete.

Thanks!

Upgrade complete. Migrated to new Debian 9 server and enabled HTTPs.

I planned to upgrade Mediawiki but didn't get a chance. On my list to do later.
