View Full Version : Which Motherboard?
May 10th, 2002, 09:52
I have come across a good deal for an athlon 1/1.1 gig. Which mobo will you recommend? I will be going for PC133 SDRAM and not DDR.

Few of those mobos exist.
If it was me, I'd probably get the Shuttle AK12A. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduct.asp?submit=manufactory&catalog=22&manufactory=1465&DEPA=1

Thanks for the link but can't I use the newer boards with the 1.1 gig ahtlon?
May 11th, 2002, 02:51
Depends on the FSB is it 200mhz or 266mhz?

This is what I have for my Athlon 1.4

Edit: The athlon 1.1 is a 200 Mhz FSB
Akalon: How is the performance of your mobo?

Uh, don't know what to say really... I've never had any problems, no blue screens of death.

I mean .. have you ever overclocked? Good BIOS? Missing features?
May 11th, 2002, 05:56
Haven't overclocked but the BIOS is very good, don't know of any missing features.
Sorry If I'm of no help.
