Re: PCI-X Compatible Sound Cards

Just to double-check: you really mean the big PCI-X slots, with 64b, 66-133MHz operation? Not PCI Express (PCIe)? PCI-X is backwards compatible with regular PCI, but with two caveats: 1) voltage is 3.3V only. 2) as it's a shared bus, the clock and features will drop to the level of the slowest card. …

Re: Running 2x audio cards in one machine

But a lot of us have 2 cards in a PC like this. PCI card for windows and ISA card for dos. My Slot 1 actually has 3 cards Onboard Yamaha YMF, Audigy 2 and AWE64 and all play nice. Can I know how your end device, the speakers, is resolved? Each soundcard its own set or some sort of mixer? I have …

Re: Motherboard G586IPV

Yes, that lokes like a linear VRM, two in fact - one for 3.3/3.52V, the other for split voltages down to 2.8V. The board should be able to supply 2.8V, so go right ahead with the P233MMX. There is one more risk - it's possible the VRM (and indeed the whole board) isn't rated to deliver the current …

Re: Motherboard G586IPV

There's a brown slot that is supposed to be cpu cache but I have no idea how to get one compatible. Any COAST stick will do. Your board already has 256kB L2 PLB cache soldered onto it (those two UMC chips next to the 88243VX chip), so the only benefit of a COAST module would be to increase that to …

Re: Cirrius logic cl-gd5428 ram upgrade.

Could you clarify this statement: but it doesn't seem to be enough for win95 What in your Windows 95 experience seems wrong? When talking old-fashioned 2D stuff, pretty much the only thing video RAM affects is max resolution and colour depth - but it can be (and in this case is) limited by chip …

Re: Sound Drivers for my Motherboard - Chaintech 6ATA2

If you have a Audigy, that would be vastly superior, both in terms of SNR, lower CPU load and positional audio. STAC 9700 drivers are tricky, SigmaTel never offered direct downloads, so you need drivers from a product they were included on. Most links are to malware sites. But I believe the Gigabyte …

Re: Case Intake Fan

[...] So my question is, do I need for a Pentium 4 pc a front intake fan or can I just put one on the side panel? Neither. If you need one fan, it should be an outtake fan and it should be high in the case (either behind the CPU, or straight out the top). It's important for airflow to have …

Re: Sound Drivers for my Motherboard - Chaintech 6ATA2

You're the one with the board, you are probably better placed to say what chip it is exactly than we are. It's an AC'97 codec in any event, but I've not found any pics good enough for a positive ID. It's the small square chip to the rear of the AGP slot. My guess (based on logo) is it's one of the …

Re: Help getting two ISA soundcards work

^^ That. Otherwise: don't run before you can walk - get a single card working before you try with two. I'd be surprised if the two cards together are the problem, but I'd not rule it out until I know the two cards show the same issues separately.
