Actually, none of my older boards did need recapping as of now. Only this one did.
I've seen bursting caps on Abit BF6 and BX133. I think most 1999-2002 Abit boards will have questionable caps. Also had a Shuttle AK31A KT266A board with bursting caps. And a DFI K8T800 board... Even if they aren't bursting, you should check the brand of them against the badcaps.net list because they could be bad.
But if the board is working ok, who cares really.
Brace yourself. It is far worse! We talk KT133A. They just started trying!
Oh goody, 686B southbridge. But KT133A is still superior to their Super 7 efforts when it comes to AGP.
I am using an ISA card.
PCI affects ISA. If you have problems with an ISA sound card, check for Delayed Transaction and Passive Release settings in the BIOS and experiment.
You may want to try the PCI Latency patch regardless because it can dramatically improve PCI performance in general (helping all PCI devices).
I use my Voodoo5 almost exclusively with old Glide games and run 4X FSAA. In this case, the V5 is clearly the bottleneck. I typically use it with my 815EP + PIII 1400 setup.
