Hey all smile.png

Since the P3/EB 933 project kind of was a downfall I decided to use the BX3 and use my P3/EB 933 @ 700Mhz, a friend of mine will send me a 700 and me my 933 to them.
It runs much better now it seems the higher 133Mhz FSB and the VIA Apollo Pro 133 A Chipset didn't go well with the Quantum3D Obsidian2 X-24, that being Voodoo2s and VIA chipsets and 133Mhz FSB's is just a bad idea.

Intel's i440 BX Chipset is the ebst chipset for all 3Dfx Voodoo2 SLI setups and a 100Mhz FSB based CPU. Still using the P/EB 933 Mhz in here but as a P3/E 700Mhz CPU which handles the system just fine :smiley:

Yesterday I renovated and cleaned my two retro Pentium !!! Systems, both using Coppermine CPU's with 133Mhz FSB aka Pentium !!!/EB CPU's.
