So, I just bought a Socket 370 motherboard for the first time in about 17 years, a Gateway 4000622... I'm pretty happy. I haven't received it yet, but I have a couple of questions.
Unlike the Dell equivalent of the Intel D815EEA that Phil did a video on a little while ago, this one doesn't have the AUX power connector on it (although it is clearly the same board, it has the solder points for this connector, but isn't populated), does the Gateway version use regular ATX power connector?
Also, I assume the drivers from Intel for the D815EEA board will work, and I do not have to get Gateway-specific ones for the board... is the same true about the BIOS? Can I flash it with the Intel version of the BIOS, or do I need Gateway-specific one for that?
And lastly, the heatsink... the board is coming with a 667Mhz P3 processor... that should require a fan on the heatsink, shouldn't it? I can't imagine that it could be cooled passively, could it? The picture is of the auction item won...
