Is it worth buying this one? Return to General Old Hardware. The experience completely turned me off SIS. I have heard similar experiences from other people and actually thought it was the usual case with those chips. IIRC some ram was dedicated to the on-board video even with it disabled. It just showed 64 megabytes.

Haven’t come across any as of yet I have heard similar experiences from other people and actually thought it was the usual case with those chips. On reboots add-in video cards would s9p7 display with vivid off color hues that weren’t always the same off color.
The price will probably asis between euros, so it’s not very much. Board index All times are UTC. There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. IIRC some ram was dedicated to the on-board video even with it disabled. Users browsing this forum: Could the motherboard be faulty?
Capacitors look okay and I have not found any other defects either. The AT power supply voltages are asua in okay as I checked them. For the most of the time, the screen is black when powering on, but sometimes it manages to start. There has to be always two or four memory modules.

Otherwise it doesn’t work. This would make it good for running some of the weirder Cyrix chips or just for overclocking of Pentiums. Its not like components found in trash after 20 years in rain dont still work flawlessly. It just showed 64 megabytes. Personally I would pass if it has the I think ssus of the main reasons I never put it together again after I had moved and had everything stores in boxes was because the old harddrive I used in that rig was just so damned loud!
Please advice if you have experience of similar problems. You can teach a man to fish and feed him for life, but if he can’t handle sushi you must also teach him to cook.
ASUS Sp97-v Socket 7 at Motherboard 200mhz Mmx & RAM
I don’t remember asuz if it was flickering or a color issue or what exactly, but it was some kind of problem like that. Is it worth buying this one? Opinions here may or may not be different but to me it is not a bad board. Wouldn’t always get there. Didn’t matter which video card I used.
Return to General Old Hardware. I only dealt with 2 and not this model, but I found the socket 7 SIS boards with chipset integrated video to be very flaky and unstable even if you did not use the integrated video and used an add-in card.
Whats missing in your collections? Only rebooting would make it change hue.

The experience completely turned me off SIS. If you want a good socket 7 board that can do it all i would go for a super socket 7 board as it supports every single socket 7 cpu including the k, k at full speed mhz frontside bus and has an agp slot.
Last edited by psychz on If you want a non-super 7 board i would look for an intel tx or hx board.
