I've got plenty of Socket 7 boards. I'll look over them tonight to see if I can find one that'll work.

I never thought I'd have to say that. Dammitall.

The goods --

DFI P5BV3+ Rev. A1 (also branded as ITOX)
- ITOX information page

- Chipset: VIA Apollo MVP3
- BIOS date: 07-29-98
- Keyboard/Power: AT / AT&ATX
- ISA/PCI/AGP: 3 / 4 / 1
- Memory slots: 2x72pin, 2x168pin

DFI 586IPVG Rev. A
- Misc stuff here
- Chipset: Intel i430VX
- BIOS date: 08/13/97
- Keyboard/Power: AT / AT
- ISA/PCI: 4 / 4, 1 shared
- Memory slots: 4x72pin, 2x168pin

FIC PT-2006 Rev 2.2
- Website
- Chipset: Intel i430VX
- BIOS date: 07-25-96 (code v8.03J801)
- Keyboard/Power: AT / AT
- ISA/PCI: 3 / 4
- Memory slots: 4x72pin, 1x168pin

Biostar MB-8500TTD Rev 1.2
- Website, kinda

- Keyboard/Power: AT&PS2 / AT
- ISA/PCI: 3 / 4
- Memory slots: 4x72pin, 2x168pin

I thought I had a ton more, but they all turned out to be Socket 5 boards (which are for sale, if anyone wants them). I tried to find official websites for the boards, but Biostar and DFI weren't very cooperative with me, so I Googled. I've also got another board that's across town with a friend. I have no idea what the specs are on it, but I do know it's a Socket 7 running a P55C, so it has all the cool voltage regulators. I've also got a random unmarked Socket 7 board with a Pentium Overdrive chip on it. It won't POST, so it's probably shot.

I'm really hesitant to part with the DFI P5BV3+ because it's buried deep in the heart of my file server. I'm using it for the same purpose as you, it's Socket 7 and it runs high speed chips. Even though the ITOX page lists 450 MHz as the highest it'll go, I'm confident it'll go the extra step. I guess I can part with it, but I want a little bit more for it. $15?

Otherwise, my first recommendation would be the DFI 586IPVG since it's already running an AMD K6 200. There's also several mentions of the board being able to run high-end K6-2s with a patched BIOS on various overclocker's forums. The board is semi-jumperless, so it should automatically detect your processor.

My second recommendation is the Biostar board. It's been my main system up until last winter. Never has been overclocked. I've updated the BIOS to the last officially released revision. It's been a pretty badass little board over the past six years. I've got the retail box back at my parents' place, but it'll be a while before I get the chance to go back. The board is jumpered, so you may not be able to set it that high.

The FIC board is just old. It'll do P55C chips, but that's it's peak. Probably not what you're looking for.

Boards come with jumpers and D-Sub headers, but otherwise stripped of memory and processor. $10 a board, I guess. Or haggle. I need pizza money.

thanks for the fast work on replying. i hate to put you to the trouble, but i liked the itox. i'll give you $15 for it, or i have a bunch of computer stuff to trade, or a dvd full of software from http://web.umr.edu/~rddc47/software.xls , or possibly anything else, just ask.

i forgot to say... i'm in no hurry whatsoever for it. it's a computer i've just been waiting for a board to find me for a year now. i got tired of stepping over it, so i decided to actually look for one. whenever you get to it, no big deal.
