Hello dear vogonians, i'm fighting against this motherboard that I suppose it has something wrong but I can't understand what precisely.
I know the board can have issues with power hungry agp videocard, in fact i'm using a pci voodoo 3 2000, change the ram installed (1 dimm 128mb) gave no result, the bios version is the latest one (R2.36), the card is in pristine physical condition and I can't really find what the problem is, the revision is 1.32 and it is the 1mb version.
I checked the jumper of the motherboard and the only wrong setting was the ram frequency bound with agp clock instead of bus, when I changed the jumpers I noticed that the instability gone worse.
In Dos the system is apparently fully stable, while on windows it crash randomly, it was able to run 1mb super pi with a k6-3+ but it isn't stable with an higher voltage cpu (IDT Winchip v3.52), after the first step it says: not exact in round.
Also testing the ram with memtest gives a general protection always at the same time (around 3 minutes), there are 4 capacitors rated V6,3 1000uf and another 4 rated V6,3 1200uf and they seems in good shape, no bulging or leaking, i'm almost giving up on this mb, any advice is welcome.
