Problems with Slotket - Page 2

post #11 of 19

Why wouldn't it support 700Mhz+ though? I can select up to a 12x multi , I can set my FSB to 133Mhz, and I can set my vcore to the 1.75v the coppermine uses. Is there something I'm missing or is that all I need for it to work?

Yeah, theoretically it should work. One thing that could be screwing it up is the cpu having a 133MHz FSB setting. Does the slotket have jumpers to force a certain FSB setting? Try setting it to 100 or 66 and then change it manually to 133 in the bios if it posts. Keep in mind though that 133 will not work if the RAM can't run at 133. Some PC100 RAM will OC to 133 if you run extra volts and loose timings, but most won't. The other issue, which is an old school overclocking problem, is that the mobo may not have a setting to lock the PCI/AGP speed. A few i440BX boards had a /4 divider to get the proper 33MHz pci speed at 133MHz (if memory serves me right, the BH6 has it as well. Thats why it was so good), but most only had the /3, which overclocked the PCI/AGP really far. It turned out that a lot of hard drives didn't like the high speed, and neither did some AGP cards (mostly ATi's, the TNT/GeForce chips handled it with no problem).

It also could be that the cpu is a later stepping that the mobo doesn't have the proper microcode for. What is the S-spec number on the chip? I kind get the feeling that slotkets were a little bit of a flakey concept, and some mobos were a little picky about what slotket you use.

The Celeron is an SL5XU step and the P3 is an SL52R step. The slotket lets me force a 100Mhz FSB. I'm running PC133, so no problem there. Here's the link for my slotket, if it helps.

I forced the P3 to run a 100Mhz FSB, turned on my computer, and heard a triumphant *BEEP* from the mobo. I got past the video BIOS, and now it will display "PENTIUM III CPU at 500E MHZ", how much RAM I have, and then it stops there. I press delete but it won't let me get into the BIOS. (At least it's a step forward..)

http://processorfinder.intel.com/Default.aspx <- Very useful!

That PIII is a 1GHz part and is of the latest CD0 stepping, which was not available in the slower clocked chips (only down to 800MHz). It's quite possible that mobo just won't work well with that stepping. The mobo says up to 700 MHz, but probably only because that was the fastest speed at the time of release. It should run faster chips as long as they are from the same steppings that the 700 was made in. Anything with a CC0, CB0, or CA2 stepping should work fine.

The same with the Celeron. It is a 1.1 GHz chip and is also the CD0 stepping.


Those are some good chips, though. Both are the fastest Coppermine chips in their series.

So your saying it should work, but it just doesn't? Is that why I have an "E" after my frequency? It just doesn't support it? Darn, I guess that's too bad, the 500Mhz Katmai I'm running right now isn't that great of an overclocker..Do you konw what a good S370 overclocking mobo would be then?

What I'm saying is that both of those CPUs probably won't work, since they are the newest CD0 stepping. Anything with an older stepping would probably work, though.

As an interesting note, the "E" is there to differentiate between the Katmai 500 and the Coppermine 500, with the "E" specifying the Coppermine. Also, there was a "B" designation added to the "E" that was used with the Coppermine 600 to differentiate between the 100MHz Coppermine 600 and the 133MHz Coppermine 600, since there was a Katmai 600 as well.

As for good S370 mobos, A name brand board with the VIA Apollo Pro 133 chipset is good. I had an ASUS mobo with that chip, and got a Coppermine 650 to 950. Tha VIA isn't nearly as fast as a i440BX or a i815, but it does the trick, and the ASUS had a chipset voltage adjustment which helped me get it to 147 MHz.
Anything decent with a i815 chipset is also very good. Don't know of any particular models off hand, but it really comes down to what is on Ebay, since nobody sells stuff like that anymore. Just dont get any intel motherboards, because they will not have any overclocking options at all. Also, stay away from the i810. It's essentially similar to the i815, but has no AGP slot, and is aimed at barebones systems, so it's pretty skimpy on the features (and consequenty, nobody made any good i810 boards).

I'm looking at this one. Is it the one you were talking about? It even comes with a HSF (An Orb 7, if I'm not mistaken), some RAM, and a (?)mystery processor(?). Who knows what it could be? Anyways, I think I'll watch this item and put a bid on it, unless someone on oc.net has one laying around that they'd be willing to sell...

I don't remember the exact model of the board I had, but it's the same chipset, and mine was a Slot 1. It looks like it's basicly the same board, just the micro ATX S370 version, which doesn't matter if 2 pci slots are enough. It would be a good choice if it works. That cooler should cool an overclocked P3 pretty well, too.

This is a recomended choice as well. Same VIA chipset.

Another good one...

And something I would be green with envy for.... A Gigabyte i815EP mobo.
http://cgi.ebay.com/Gigabyte-GA-60XT...QQcmdZViewItem

Get the Gigabyte if it's possible. It will definitely be the fastest. It also appears to be one of the few mobos that will support the Tualatin core, which is the newest version of the P3. Tualatin was a 0.13 um chip, was available in speeds of 1.13-1.4 GHz, and was also available in an S model with 512KB of L2 cache.
