I had a athlon 990 mhz in a msi k7t turbo 2 and they ran great... slow but great... I recently purchased a new xp 2400+ and I expected the turbo 2 to work with it because I had the latest bios update and the readme for the update said "Fixed compatibility issue with 2400/2600+ 266" Well i place the 2400 in the slot, do everything correctly and the computer doesn't even post! I spent and entire day trouble shooting without any success until right about before i gave up i thought of swapping mobos (should of been my first guess). Yup just as i thought, it was the board. I had an extra ecs k7s5a pro sitting around so i used that and it worked so i am still using it. My question is does anybody know of a good motherboard that supports sdram AND ddr with a 266 fsb?? This k7s5a pro is very unstable and knocks me out of games and sometimes just locks up. I'm just lookin for some suggestions and thx in advance.
It's not a race, unless it is a race.
