Posted August 5, Use only 80 pin cables. It wasn’t the fastest at the time, but I still enjoyed a lot of games on it and had my first experience with Linux on it. And my bios is modded with ipxe to replace the pre-pxe netboot it came with. Looks like I’ll be getting a new one.

You can install any one of these processors on the mainboard. This includes derogatory comments such as “retard”.

I can burn at 8X, even on-the-fly, and my computer is still usable for small tasks. I am not going to cast the first stone, I am aware that we viveo all be faulted with using a tone that is less than friendly, but sometimes all that it takes is stepping away from the computer a few hours or a day.


Performance is also good. This board has power integrity issue.

Looks like the board is coming out and maybe going back. Sign In Sign Up. Recapped the whole board too because caps were trash back then and popped often.

Also, since you’ve swapped out vid cards [using both AGP and PCI in the system] I suspect the mainboard is bad [if it’s new take it back, get another one].

I found one on E-bay and purchased it. Or if you prefer, you should be able to pick up a top quality discontinued AMD chipset board for small change if you hunt around. The PCI audio sound problem can be solved by changing the latency timer. Sign in with Google. Log in with your username and password. One had horrible problems with random cold boot. Damn I remember that board.

This is the fourth ks75a I have built using the K7S5A motherboards, but all the previous ones were ,7s5a 3.


The damnable K7S5A from ECS –

Maybe they are some KTA boards that are better than my abit. The time now is k7z5a It can only operate on their default bios and not with the new one. When it videeo, it works great and beat any VIA stuff that comes out.

Ratings and Reviews Write a review. Zero failures after 12 or 18 months. Pull everything off the mainboard,IDE cables,pci cards ,floppy cable and just leave the video card and monitor plugged in.

I am almost certain this is the motherboard I had in my first computer. However, I would not recommend the ECS board unless you are willing to struggle with it to make it work.

Here are a few things to try. I’ve used Asus; they’re good but not worth the premium you pay for their boards.
