BP6 as a website server?

Anyone running a BP6 to host a website? Or more than 1 website? Post your details here, as in what operating system, CPUs, memory, video card, hard drives, special server software, etc, that you are using. I'm doing nothing fancy, just a simple website to host something on the BP6, just something to...

Removing the overclock helped. I had the 533 Celerons running at 600 (8X75 FSB), and MBM 4.18 wouldn't stay on the screen for more than 10 minutes. I'd set it, go in the other room for a bit, come back and check, and I'd have to reopen it. :x So I tried pulling the CMOS battery and resetting the cle...

I switched MBM 4.18 back to show the VTT rail in place of the CPU1 voltage. Then I went on the internet and played some Windows Media video to give it some changing loads. It's in the range of 1.47 to 1.55 volts.

Is that good, or is that fluctuating too much?

The 533 Celerons run at 2.00 volts, they always have. I didn't raise the voltage to them when I overclocked them to 600 (8X75) because they were always stable even at 600.

Which one is the VTT? I listed all the voltages that MBM 4.18 provides.

The power supply fan is running good. I have MBM 4.18 installed on this system because it'll monitor dual CPUs. I noticed that the CPU temps were up about 3 degrees Celsius each. And the case temp was up about 4 degrees. That's the first unusual thing. Here's the voltages it gives me on the UP/DOWN ...

My recapped BP6 locks up!

I recently recapped my BP6 motherboard with the Jackcon caps I got way back in April or something like that. I replaced EVERY capacitor on the board, all with new Jackcon caps. Here's the problem. It will now lock up sometimes, and the only way out it is to hit the reset button and start over. I can...

I'll go back into the BP6 and try again. I hadn't changed the boot sequence to start with EXT, or the UDMA66 thing, wherever that is. Or the cable select jumper on the hard drive. This BP6 has the RU BIOS and a 1.21 or 1.22 HPT366. I'll have to look at it on the next boot up. I'm looking to max out ...

Problems with IDE 3&4 ports for ATA 66.

I've been running my BP6 on the IDE1 port for about 4-1/2 months now. With a 40 conductor cable and a 6.4 GB 5400 rpm ST36421A hard drive ( Seagate ). I found out that this hard drive supports ATA 66 speeds, and the IDE 1&2 ports are only for ATA 33 speeds. So I went and got an 80 conductor cable an...

No, I never paid anything, they just sent the capacitors based on that one email where I listed specific sizes of caps. I wasn't even expecting to get it.

A couple weeks ago, I emailed Jackcon in Taiwan and asked about getting replacement capacitors for my BP6. They emailed back and said it'd cost something like $70 with shipping, so I forgot about it.
