    San Jose area Frys, XP2000+/K7S5Apro $69.

    Found it looking at another thread but I thought this deserves a thread of its own. This is a 1 day only deal 7/3 in the San Jose Area at Frys. Get em while you can folks. This will make another great folding rig to add to my farm.

    Ok I bought the cpu and mobo combo. It is a Tbred-A. My Mom needs a new computer cheap so Im gonna use it in a rig for her. Plus I picked up that maxtor disk drive for 59 with 30 dollar rebate.

    Ill see how high this chip can go at stock voltage in my rig... then ill hard code, it by blowing bridges, to where it will be at a suitable overclock.

    IR1 would you be willing to go back and pick up another combo? I'll gladly paypal you the $. My brother in law had already left the area before I could get him to go there and score one of these combos for me.

    The k7s5a was a decent board. good for the price and had the overclocking bio release.

    Infact I Might buy that board again with a combo.

    But i never had any luck at all with the pro board.

    Yeah I got Honey's Oc bios on my bro's comp's. What about the pro has been... without luck? Ive never purchased a pro.. I only figured it was just k7s5a with USB 2.0 or something like that. Is there an OC bios for the pro?

    Man im going to have to head back to my old K7S5A forum.

    Oh well you never know unless you ask. Thanks anyway. Normally I work at Intel on Bowers Ave, about 1 mile from the sunnyvale store. I picked the wrong day to take off.

    Here's the link to the alternative BIOS for the Pro version:
    CLICK ME!
    I haven't gotten a chance to test it out yet.

    My opinion of this motherboard is very high. I've used a few now(all pros) and have not had any problems(with windows xp). I also like them because they are basically free.

    Called em(twice), to see if they would be willing to ship the CPU+MB combo and the 30gig Maxtor to Seattle. Not looking to good, but the guy will ask the area manager to see if they can do it when he talk's to him tomorrow.
