    Re: what was You favorite old school AMD motherboard ?

    This was the computer I had my Mom using till I brought her to live with me. I had her a modern ASRock FX 4170 combo at home till she forgot how to move the mouse.. Sadly at 91, she has now joined my dad back in Montana.
    I have now a host of things to do to clean all that up (Bills, taxes, and things).
    I do intend to resurrect that NF7S, got to try finding a XT-800 or 850 that I am sure I have around here and see what it can do to perk up the system.
    Maybe next month sometime.

    sorry to hear that , I ment no disrespect , just trying to liven things up around here
    That NF7 is definatly a classic amoung AMD boards , maybe it could run some Linux mint or other distro ? In any case a good solid board . I miss old abit, epox , and Soltek those were the days !

    I did not take it wrong, just making my excuses for being lazy. It has Win XP on it now and I am sure I can get it going but it is on the back burner set to 'simmer'.

    Re: what was You favorite old school AMD motherboard ?

    OMG. I had quite a few back in the day. Several stick out in my mind. ABit's NF7S. That was my first real oc'ing board. I remember a friend spazzing out on me watching me do a hotflash on it once. I told him to relax, I do this type of nonsense all the time. Ah such good times, such good memories. The other was the DFI Lanparty series of boards. I had a 939 Toledo and a watercooler solution that just absolutely screamed on that combo. Honorable mention would be the DFI Infinity RS482. Bought with the intentions of using it for a HTPC build but it turned out to be quite the oc'er so I abused it too. Ahh the good ol days indeed. Hanging out on then AMDMB (later PCPER) learning how to abuse hardware. Then abusing the hardware. Then popping up on the boards to bs about it afterwards.

    Good times no doubt.

    EP-8RDA+, pretty much end of story for me

    Had a DFI NF2 Ultra infinity, plus a LanParty NF4 Ultra-D (if that even counts as "old school" enough) that were both pretty awesome, but just can't compare to the fun I had with my RDA+ and my 1700+, which was a great OC'er

    Hmm, old skool?

    I just posted this from it.

    A7N8X Deluxe running Win 7 for streaming music.

    Specs with link below, the 2100 is a little bit OC'd...

    Re: what was You favorite old school AMD motherboard ?

    I never seemed to buy the right motherboard until I got an AM3 board from Biostar. Only board to break 2 years service. Over 3 years now. NF7-S went out in 2 years, everything else was toast in about a year or less. I would say that logically, it's one part the actual unit you bought (could have a mfg. defect), one part engineering. Nothing else really matters. Solid caps, gold plating, million year warranty. That's all marketing. To answer your question, I can't, all my old-school motherboards were crap unless you consider AM3 old-school.

    Biostar A880G+, if I can have a new-ish board as a favorite. Been mildly overclocked all 3 years as well. Nothing special, a crappy little $55 mobo. pwns 'em all for me. lol

    A7V! Nothing was as good until I got the DFI NF4 Ultra-D.
    For all the hoopla over Epox, my experiences with 8k3a+ and 8RDA were less than compelling.

    Re: what was You favorite old school AMD motherboard ?

    I also had the 8RDA+ but my favorite had to have been the DFI Infinity Ultra and then LanParty Ultra B?
    I tinkered around with a couple of others but their name escapes me right now. There was an Asus A7(N or V)8X-E Deluxe I think? Then there was the Abit NF7-S before I had the DFI's

    Spoiler!

    Re: what was You favorite old school AMD motherboard ?

    My first amd board was the Iwill BD-100 mvp with a K3 cpu (450mghz I think). As the instruction confused the various bus jumpers you had to decipher the silk screening on the board. Finally got it running then some minor overclocking

    My favorite board was the above mentioned Chaintek VNF250 with I topped off at 2.5GHz, memory at 250MHz using BH-5 memory with an OCZ memory voltage booster, Memory at 3v. Board could do 2.5 with divider lowered on memory in stock config. (w moderate cpu voltage boost).

    The board got me into water cooling as well. As I had good parts I transferred up to my last amd board, a Gigabyte phenom 6 or 8 core that blew up with the rest of my folding computers from a transformer failure in my neighbor hood.
    say la vie, been using laptops since.
