Motherboards-microATX that works
« on: July 03, 2011, 10:50:51 PM »
Hi all,
I'm setting up another machine computer and have tried an Asus A7v8x-MX motherboard that has unstable pulse, This is due I believe from the onboard video. I'm using an ATI AGP video card.

My questions are...  What MICRO ATX boards are you using that function well with Mach3?  Is there a section here that lists compatable boards of the MICRO ATX form?   I have heard that some boards have a jumper to eliminate onboard video interference.  Is this true?
The A7V8X-MX does not have this feature.

I don't need a new MICRO ATX board...just one that works

Thanks,
John Meissner

Okay, the A7v8x-MX Works just fine.  This was the first time I had to use the optimizations offered.  All I had to do was go to "Standard PC" which just turned off the ACPI.  That did the trick.   Seems to run just fine now.   Woo-Hoo!

Glad you got it sorted John.

Thinking about your post, maybe it would be a good idea to have a post compiling all the motherboard types that do work well with the latest versions of Mach.  ???

Well, if this thread is occasionally refreshed, we can use it to enter our motherboard(s) model(s) we use in our CNC systems.

In any event, I've been using the ASUS A7V333 and A7V600 boards running Mach3 right off the bat, and now the A7V8X-MX(running in optimized "standard PC" mode).
