It would be nice to see some overclocked bus speeds here, but Gigabyte apparently does not think those are necessary for a multiprocessor board. This page was last edited on 11 April , at That wasn’t usually the concern though, the concern is the motherboard. Besides, the only Mhz FSB CPUs I can find here are at most Mhz which makes them useless as an upgrade, and the client did mention the possibility of having me build him a whole new machine so I think I’ll advice him to go that route instead.

Dec 1, Posts: It is also known as the iBX and was released in April Nov 26, Posts: May 4i40bx, Posts: So overclocking the FSB to Mhz is not an option then? You won’t be able to get mhz FSB without a lot of fiddling. I don’t completely understand that.
Will that allow the chipset to go to MHz? CPU-Z reports the following system specs: Still, the later i was considered the best Pentium III chipset because it offered a better feature set and very similar performance relative to the BX.
Can a Mhz FSB PIII be used on an iBX motherboard? – Ars Technica OpenForum
Just web surfing, email, and Word, no. The memory angle is a better bet. Rental car lied to me! Sep 27, Posts: Finally, the unsupported Tualatin-core Pentium III could be used with an adapter and various modifications, with varying degrees of success.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The good news is the board “probably” has 4 memory slots and 4 x can be found dirt cheap.
QPA combines enhanced bus arbitration, deeper buffers, open-page memory architecture and ECC memory control to improve system performance. I didn’t know that, how can I know wether a motherboard supports newer, high-density sticks or not?
Views Read Edit View history. The success of the BX chipset has caused various software emulation and virtualization packages to use it as part of their i440xb system.
However, there are some caveats. Most commented news last week  Wednesday Morning Links  Grab that coffee! Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.
Gigabyte GA-6BXDS i440BX Dual Slot-1 ATX
That vintage motherboard probably does not support MB high density memory and the MB low density sticks demand a premium. The board is fairly small for a i440gx processor board, but much larger than most single processor boards. O about to reinstall the OS this motherborad is super confusing not sure if it’s a bx somethings point to a bx others inrel to a ZX bios claims zx chipset I’m soooo confused currently has a Mhz pentium 3 B chip FSB funning at MHz FSB fixed bus pci and age has 3 dimm slots for ram only mb shows might be due to the video memory size?
Nine beefy uF capacitors surround each CPU slot with a few smaller ones spread out around the board. The BX became one of Intel’s most popular chipsets. Wed Mar 21, 4: Apr 22, Posts: Fri Mar 23, 4: That means prices are higher and availability is lower as well as equipment being older. I don’t know if that is motherboard or chipset related or not, but that’s another caveat to watch out for.
Pity that I got rid of inrel last P3 mhz fsb chips, or I could help you out.
