    But does anyone know how to
    fine tweak this board or, how to interpret it's @;{*§!*!* BIOS settings
    options, especially "sustain 3T " and PCI #2 master read/write wait state"
    and simmilar, they're so lame. And is there a cure for it's low memmory
    bandwidth.

    & by D way, how to spell freelee, as it is of 'free to do something'.

    Thanks in advance 4 this last one.

    I see we're all here old timers. Shure did go trough a lot with my VA. '
    have on it promise ultra ata 100, creative live!, yamaha opl sax (isa), 256
    MB, k6 500 II (previous to it's career was p I 233 mmx), 9800 SE 128 MB, ATX
    PSU, it's not o/c-ed, since it makes an electronic component near the CPU to
    (!CHECK THIS!) solder off, and anyway it's PCI/AGP devices aren't stable at
    >100 MHz FSB, but that's not completly true (lucky for thoes who gets it

    that way), and there's more and not apropriate any more. We all should know
    that it is beter to have higher FSB than CPU speed, when you can not rise
    CPU any more. But even today PCI against FSB multiplers are so lousy. BLA
    BLA BLA. OK! Sorry fo this. My BIOS is from 2000, but the bord's got issues,
    I'll tell you. From mine experience, don't recomend any (except some that
    worked with others, depending on IDE & ATAPI device instaled) via 4in1 *hit,

    how to Infra red on VA 503+??

    Got some IR axis Infrared Transceiver Adapter, IRB-01. Says it's Epox. Does
    this thing realy work for anyone.

  4. Hello, Edi.

    A Radeon 9800SE works on a VA-503+? Wow, that's good to know. I guess it
    must be a universal graphics card that still works on old AGP 1x/2x slots.

    BIOS tweaks for the VA-503+ (Chipset Features Setup):
    See http://www.rojakpot.com/bog.aspx for explanations of what these things
    mean!
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Video BIOS cacheable: disabled
    System BIOS cacheable: disabled
    Memory Hole...: disabled
    DRAM Page Mode: enabled
    Sustained 3T Write: disabled (enabled for slower but more stable)
    Write Cache Pipeline: enabled
    DRAM Read Pipeline: enabled
    Read Around Write: enabled
    Memory ECC Check: only if you have ECC RAM
    Bank 0/1/2/3/4/5 Timing: turbo
    SDRAM Cycle Length: depends on your RAM CAS rating... "3" if you do not know
    SDRAM Bank Interleave: Try 4-way. If that does not work, then 2-way.
    SDRAM MD-to-HD Pop + 1T: disabled
    SDRAM Sustain 4T Cycle: disabled
    Aperature Size: 64MB
    AGP-2X Mode Support: enabled
    Spread Spectrum Modulated: disabled
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Low memory bandwidth? Well, you are pretty much stuck with it. If you are
    brave, you can try overclocking the FSB while keeping the CPU speed about the
    same. For example, if you have a K6-2 450 running at (4.5 x 100), try running
    it at (4 x 112). Of course, your memory and components will have to be able
    to handle this, as well, but it is a way to "cheat".

    "Freely". In English, the "-ly" suffix is used to change adjectives to
    adverbs.

    free --> freely

    happy --> happily
    The children are happy. They play their games happily.

    quick --> quickly
    The man is fast; he is quick. The man runs quickly down the street.

    Search google groups for "sustained 3t writes" and you will find some
    posts. It's the "write through/write back" cache setting.
    Sustained 3T Writes Enabled = Write Through Mode; Disabled=Write Back

  6. =======================================================
    "Sustained 3T Write -some say that it is relative to L2 cache and instaled
    RAM."
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here is a good link for write-through/write-back:
    http://www.pcguide.com/ref/mbsys/cache/charWrite-c.html

    Suppose the system writes information to a location that is already in the
    cache.

    Write-back will write the new information only to the cache... the
    information will only be written "back" to the system memory when that
    cache location is used for something else.

    Write-through will write the new information to the cache and "through" to
    the memory at the same time. This is usually slower, but the cache and
    memory are always in sync, so it is more stable.
    =======================================================

    "Write Cache Pipeline: enabled - when enabled, it creates lags in some
    sys configs.. Couldn't resolve wether is OS or MBo issue."
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is probably an issue with other components in the system (graphics
    cards, etc.) and their drivers. Make sure your drivers are up to date,
    then use whichever setting works best for you.
