“A7V8X-X Motherboard: Great motherboard...with a couple...”

Written on: 09/01/2011 by bavaneche (1 review written)

A7V8X-X Motherboard: Great motherboard...with a couple of problems that don't effect each motherboard. I have 4 of these mb's and 2 of them can't go beyond the 1.5gig RAM size without constant rebooting...the other 2 are great. All 4 of them seem to have a problem with heavy weight video cards which will also cause reboots off and on. I find 64mb GeForce 2's and 4's work great. I use 512 RAM sticks on the 2 that have RAM problems and I have no problems then. On the other 2 I use a full 2 gigs with no problems. None of them recognise large drives such as the 500gig WD's I use on all 4 so a upgrade to the BIOS worked on the 2 I upgraded. I didn't see any improvement between doing the upgrade and not so I only did 2 of the 4. It's now Jan 2011 and I've been using them as my server boards with Linux database, web and file servers since I got them in Jan 2004...and they still are my best work horses, even better than the new 3.0ghz mb's I have for the same purpose. I use the Barton 2500+ CPU with Kingston RAM. The Barton 2500+ has the 512mb internal cache which works well. Most CPU's of that era don't like more than 128mb internal cache and won't use it. Overall I rate these boards 4.5 stars - once you figure out the personality of each board and tend to their various needs. They all seem to vary in their needs for some reason, but, that's okay with me. They are very stable and can be 99.99% relied upon. KUDOS
