Still, any unsuspecting user would have freaked out at the extremely high voltage read-out. A seemingly stable mainboard with a lot of features, the power-on using keyboard feature is very cool and really utilizes the ATX technology. However, I’d give it only an overall rating of 4. In the tests, I only used a Slot-1 Pentium-II as a form of comparison between the two different motherboard revisions. I would normally purchase a product even if it has bad points, only if I can tolerate them.

The ability to choose a wide range of bus speeds is extremely attractive when one is faced with a not-so-good CPU to overclock. I then manually forced IRQ Most newer BX motherboards were built with about 30 FSB settings, and yet some overclockers were still unsatisfied.

They did not have it in stock, of course. I suppose this elitr the first of its kind to have on-board 3D audio. Continued in a morning and after two more hours of mucking around finally got it to work.
Elitegroup Computer Systems ECS was founded in and has since been designing and manufacturing motherboard products for both the home pc and OEM market. Anyway, seems like motherboards are going in the same direction as softwares, with all the version numbers. So, I believe adding more FSBs would really give buyers tougher decisions to make.
The setup was simple and straightforward, just like any other modem.

The output level is rather useless unless you own a DAT player which you have modified its input connector to fit your motherboard. Anyway, I doubt it will hurt many, unless there’s another use which I’ve not heard of. At first, I thought Jackie was kidding when he told me it could do 3D sound. Non-windows application support suck, of course.
Most overclockers would be delighted to know that the CPU core voltage could actually be increased freely, meaning there’s no limit to how much voltage you can set unlike the Microstar MS, where the voltage setting would be limited to only 2. If you try to diagnose SPDIF input and get an error message complaining that cmo8338 input does not work this is before the diagnosing is actually done then the problem lies ccmi8338 DIP switch settings.
Behringer claims frequency range from 15Hz to 20KHz, ultra-linear frequency response. I would normally purchase a product even if it has bad points, only if I can tolerate them. On the other hand, integrating the Socket into the motherboard does help save the consumer time and additional cost in purchasing a Slotket for their Socket PPGA processor, if their motherboard is in the Slot-1 format.

As of today, CMI is fairly new, so most of the material on the web deals with or it’s predcessor, which is basically on ISA bus. On the other hand, I was expecting it to be unstable, but was surprised to find it untrue. What you need for digital audio are Midiman Dio drivers from http: That would take care of converting analog input signal to digital form and digital to analog, too.
This time I decided not to be a wussy and build one myself.
That’s the best I could do before I spend a fortune on a Nikon digital camera. Quantum MB Video Card s: My luck finally changed when I found out that Zoltrix Nightingale card is based on contrary to what some web sources sayand cm8338 is a bit less elusive. However, I do believe the latter to be true since my CPU ran without any voltage tweaking.
The overclocked CPUs ran very smoothly without any hitch and voltage tweaking. I guess I have an explanation for that, but for now, let’s carry on with the test.
Anyway, that was acceptable for me so I ordered ci8338. Moreover, this is only a single audio chip which could provide Sound Blaster bit compatible audio, and the additional support for Microsoft’s DirectSound 3D and Aureal 3D specifications.
After much of head scratching and suspecting the CMI hardware, I finally bit the bullet and installed motherboard driver updates which I normally don’t – look at the quality of usual driver software! Connector board is extra option in this case.

It is very easy to spot this, unlike some motherboards. In fact, it was so cool that I played almost two hours, and was blown off to bits and pieces countless times.
In the tests, I only used a Slot-1 Pentium-II as a form of comparison between the two pco motherboard revisions.
