I did play some games on it, but I really can’t remember if it had any particular issues that weren’t because of the semi-randomness with which this system was put together 98SE was autopatched iirc, harddrive was suspended DIY-style, can’t remember what sound solution I used. If you want a non-super 7 board i would look for an intel tx or hx board. There are problems with the motherboard and have not found the reason. I think one 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! Otherwise it doesn’t work. Its not like components found in trash after 20 years in rain dont still work flawlessly.

Didn’t matter which video card I used. Could the motherboard be faulty?

Opinions here may or may not be different but to me it is not a bad board. I have heard similar experiences from other people and actually thought it was the usual case with those chips. Wouldn’t always get there.

I only dealt with 2 and not this model, but I found the socket 7 SIS sp79 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. There has to be always two or four memory modules. There are problems with the motherboard and have not found the reason. Its not like components found in trash after 20 years in rain dont still work flawlessly.
Is it worth buying this one?
I don’t remember anything about the floppy issue, but I do remember having problems with the video output. Anyway, it still might be interesting to have as most others AT s7 boards were those plain azus Otherwise it doesn’t work.
If you want a non-super 7 board i would look for an intel tx or hx board. It just showed 64 megabytes. What issues could it cause?
This would make it good for running some of the weirder Cyrix chips or just for overclocking of Pentiums.

This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. 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. 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.
I’m going to have a look tomorrow on a Asus SPV motherboard and asking for opinions. Please advice if you have experience of similar problems. IIRC some ram was dedicated to the on-board video even with it disabled.
Capacitors look okay and I have not found any other defects either. I have also tried with different memory module combinations, no effect.

The experience completely turned me off SIS. If it had been very unstable, I probably would’ve remembered it, but I suppose these could be troublesome in certain configurations.
On reboots add-in video cards would randomly display with vivid off color hues that weren’t always the same off color. I haven’t deliberately owned another of that vintage or newer SIS board since even though I heard later chipsets were okay.

But i also have an Asus spv board in one of my systems and it did surprise me.
Haven’t come across any as of yet Return to General Old Hardware.
