Just for the hell of it, reworking an old tower i bought second hand in 2006.
Having trouble identifying mother board. Gigabyte Legacy board, GA-6VX7-4X rev 5.0 is the number on the board.
Can only find rev 1.2 in searches, the diode/jumper layout is all wrong.
Only picture i can find that looks right, is -4X-AP, from memory the chip numbers differ somewhat.
Have some chip numbers, Creative CT5880(sound?), VIA VT82 C686B(system?), there is another that has a heatsink glued to it that i'm not going to remove just yet.
Just researching to find what I've got/what can be done with it/how far I can push it before it goes BANG.
Have thrown together a couple of machines in the past with varying degrees of success, from junk parts and donated units.
Got them working essentially, but always have some problem or other. Want to try and fix this just to say "i did it!"
Need positive ID to find drivers, manual, jumper settings and so forth.
Was a working machine only a week or two ago, stripped down for cleaning, what the hell, let's see what's possible.
Suggestions on where I might find more/accurate info?
