Re: CPU Detection Help?

Ok, now I have full picture. Your Pentium 133 has locked multiplier, which was a thing, due to rebranding scams done with unlocked steppings, so it can be only underclocked. Additionally that's Intel OEM motheboard which can recognize that, but DELL has probably left some oversight in the firmware. …

Re: CPU Detection Help?

Multipliers recognised by 95% of the P133 production run are just 1.5 and 2x.. you can set 2.5x 3x or 3.5x on the board, but it's still gonna run at 2x or 1.5x unless you got a board that notices and complains. I only left 5% hanging as a maybe on claims that later P133 cores culled from P200 …

Re: CPU Detection Help?

After a few benchmarks of different speeds P133s (133MHz in BIOS and Windows) 3dmark99Max 967 CPU Marks SYSinfo (DOS) CPU Score 420 P166s (166MHz in BIOS and 133MHz Windows) 3dmark99Max 977 CPU Marks SYSinfo (DOS) CPU Score 421 P200s (200MHz in BIOS and 100 MHz Windows) 3dmark99Max 752 CPU Marks …

Re: CPU Detection Help?

Bios tells you it's a Pentium type CPU that's running at 166 MHz, smarter software tells you it's a CPU whose id tag says "model Intel Pentium 133". At least that's my guess. Are you sure you want to run that poor thing at 200 MHz? I mean, there sure was quite some price discrimination involved in …

CPU Detection Help?

Completely baffled I am so seeing if I can find some guidance. i430VX Chipset with a P133s, trying to overclock to P166 or even P200, BIOS identifies CPU as 166MHz and even 200MHz when jumpers are changed which is not an issue. Confusion for me begins in Windows 95 OSR 2.5 as CPU identifies as …

Re: paste in socket

I think brake cleaner in a spray can will work, too. I've cleaned many parts with alcohol but some of the thermal paste will withstand alcohol quite good and brake cleaner often is the answer. All the parts I've cleaned (including total motherboards) with brake cleaner still work perfectly. Do make …

Re: paste in socket

Bought a DFI LanParty NF4 SLI-DR on ebay to do a 2005 build, but it was not posting, and all 4 debug leds were glowing red, which seems to mean its stuck on cpu detection. After disassembling the socket 939 with suspicious paste residue, was greeted by this sight: https://i.imgur.com/4f5uKam.jpg …

Lian-Li UAC Win98 Spec

Here is my Old New system purely for Windows 98 Gaming. Recently I have been dragging parts down from the loft and built this, basically a rebuild from long ago when I was young. Forgot how much of a pleasure this case was to work with, just a few teething problems with regards to performance. Below …

Re: Game port midi cable?

in Marvin \ Sound
The following is a type used and trusted by many here on the forums. Take the option to include a 1m MIDI cable, or supply your own MIDI cable of any length. https://www.serdashop.com/DB15MIDI Other types exist but, in the absence of a specific endorsement, they can be hit-or-miss functionality- …

Game port midi cable?

in Marvin \ Sound
So I dragged out my Sound Canvas SC-55 and AWE64 Gold, neither used for many years. AWE 64 Gold still works like new (after EPROM reset) and Sound Canvas powers up but I'm lacking a midi cable and cannot find it anywhere. Looking online for replacement cable and really cannot find anything (maybe …

Re: GPU for PIII

P3-500 Katmai would bottleneck a lot if not all of those GPUs. WIth an i440BX motherboard, you're limited to AGP 1.0 (2x, 3.3V), and with a very early BX board, I wouldn't rely on drawing huge amounts of power over that slot. Another consideration: with a relatively weak CPU, the driver version …

GPU for PIII

Currently in the process of resurrecting my old PIII that I found in my parents loft and had not been switched on for around twenty years. So far so good as after a complete tear down, deep clean and reassemble it works, only thing I changed was the BIOS battery. What would be the best GPU for best …
