Has anyone ever had success getting one of these chips going on a desktop socket7 board with L2 cache enabled?
I've had one of these desoldered P266-MMX chips sitting around for years, and I finally got off my ass and decided to try to get it going on an Intel chipset socket7 motherboard.
I have it working in an Asus VX97 at 266MHz, however as everyone already knows the L2 cache doesn't work, because intel made some changes to the CPU. I have seen the posts that claim the only way you can get L2 cache going is to use a board with an Intel TX chipset. So I popped the chip into a QDI Titanium 1B+ board with i430TX. No cigar.
Has anyone else tried TX boards? I think that the only way to get tillamook going with L2 cache is to use the mobile version of the TX chipset.
