I have a total of Mb for this board. If there was a problem they could use these instead or in addition to the standard BIOS beep codes. I doubt that part would achieve full performance on the particular board as the bus speed maximum is 75Mhz. Many people had 64MbMb. This board was donated to me quite some time ago, and luckily it works.

The slot 1 design solved this problem by putting the CPU and cache in separate packages on an installable module.

By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. Like the Dataexpert board, this one comes from a transitional time for computer technology. Here is the board is all its glory, note how integrated this chipset is. I had a quick look at benchmarks from the time and found it does nearly as well as some Mhz parts. There are not too many jumpers to configure, and those that are present have a silkscreen label to aid setting them.

The other integrated features were pretty much standard for the time, but impressively are mostly integrated into the main chip. This can have the effect of starving the main CPU of memory bandwidth forcing it to run slower than it could have otherwise and vice-versa.

The slot 1 system was implemented by Intel for a few reasons, but mainly they wanted to move away from the ageing socket 7 standard, partly because it was limiting the memory bandwidth and partly because it was used by many of their competitors. Do this 60 times a second and you get , bytes per second or about Judging by the date codes it was made in late CPU support seems to be up to Mhz from the jumper settings chart printed on the board. It vver they were one of the first to offer over-clocking as a feature quite early in the history of PCs.


Neither Windows NT or Windows had as much support as the more consumer oriented Windows 9x series, so software and hardware support either cost more, or was simply non-existant.

MSI MS-6153 – motherboard – ATX – Socket 370 – i440BX

Unfortunately the CMOS battery is dead and cannot be easily replaced on this particular board. Where these components actually reside depends on the age of the system. I doubt that part would achieve full performance on the particular board as the bus speed ms-66153 is 75Mhz.

Some of the capacitors are visibly bulging, a sure sign they are failing. It would be considered unusual today as the standard supported CPUs from many different manufacturers, and was probably the last to really do so. The bundled CD-ROM includes all the basic driver files, in addition to the SoftCooler utility mentioned above, and Microstar’s inhouse developed System Monitor software that basically outputs the same information values voltages, etc It ms6153 a late socket 3 board that supports fast chips and the Pentium Overdrive.

For most gamers, and high-end users that are always doing something with their PC, don’t expect SoftCooler to do all that much for you, although it is nice to know that it is included. There are m-6153 jumpers required for set up, basically one set for the processor multiplier and another for the bus speed. I used this board for some time running debian linux as a basic file server and web cache, it performed quite well at the time, but that was some time ago and I doubt a modern Linux distribution would run well now.


The jumpers are mostly for setting parameters for the processor such as the multiplier, voltage, and bus speed. Next to the floppy connector is a connector that seldom got use in desktop machines. After all on-board graphics is all about reducing the cost.

I may be able to get a replacement, or I might have to hack this chip to disconnect the internal battery and attach my own external battery. Mister G Kids A daily comic vfr real stuff little kids say in school.

It could be leftover from when the board was in the prototype phase, and thus not used in production, but still on the layout. Do not compare newer ratings to older ones, the newer ratings are much more aggressive. This would have been necessary in order to power the second CPU.

This board has some older style cache chips seen here, much like those found on old boards. The Socket board makes use of the same Intel BX chipset found in slot-1 motherboards, meaning that the features the market is used to have been ported over with a few new surprises. This is an important feature for faster processors that can consume data from the bus faster than memory of the time could deliver.
