Is there a better method to test the ram? The BX came out almost a year and a half earlier than the EP. Because the OS doesn’t use the cached ram first, you will get a tremendous performance penalty. It is also known as the iBX and was released in April Wed Mar 28, 7: The AGP speed thing was already covered. Fri Mar 23,

Intel had clearly gimped the iEP with an artificial memory limit because they wanted to force people to upgrade to a P4. Thanks everyone, so far.

Use ctspd, downloadable from http: May 12, Posts: Will that allow the chipset to go to MHz? They will likely be cheaper than the type 1because they use fewer chips, and with newer process technologies read: Additionally, if you plan to buy MB modules, you might have no chance to find out if the ram chips are 32Mx4 or 16Mx8. ISA is still used for things like thermocouples and other system utilities as it’s incredibly easy to implement, and is still fairly fast for most GPIO tasks.


Thanks for the links though, learning new things can never hurt.

This motherboard has a P3 above i440bx. However, for the life of me I can’t recall why I didn’t just buy an iEP board instead.

Can a 133Mhz FSB PIII be used on an i440BX motherboard?

SDRAM has different types of density? Can that be used on this motherboard?

There is no workaround for that, you have to upgrade your processor or use only MB ram. Every computer has the ISA bus chippset it’s address space, and those system devices appear as ISA devices, even if they don’t use the same bus.

CPU-Z reports the following system specs: RAM modules compatible with motherboards based on the ibx chipset This FAQ will help you to find out which ram modules will work in your motherboard based on the bx chipset. The probablity for such errors is quite small, and unless you run a mission-critical machine i. Was anything us gamers care about removed between the two generations? You just need the right board.

Just web surfing, email, and Word, no. However, there are some caveats. So it might not be too surprising that some utilities report them as the same.

Somehow I managed to avoid the P4 generation and stuck with that configuration until upgrading to CoreDuo in ! How can I find out what type of Dimm I have in my computer? Just around the Khalkhists Registered: Newer quality Dimms feature such organization, but they will not work on bx-based boards.
