this before use AGP card!!! (BW7 / BL7 / TH7 / TH7II and all other
Model name: BW7/BL7/TH7/TH7II and all other 845/850 mainboards
Since Intel 845/850 chipset supports AGP 1.5V only, wrongfully
plug an AGP 3.3V only AGP card on Intel 845/850 mainboard
will burn the MCH chip and cause your mainboard
- Most of the AGP cards gold finger is with a notch to identify
AGP 3.3V or AGP 1.5V as illustrated in below picture. An AGP card
without that notch means AGP 1.5V not compatible and cannot be
inserted into AGP slot fully.
- Very few graphic card like Leadtek WinFast VR300, it's a 3.3V
only AGP card but with "1.5V identify notch" golden
finger. Such kind of abnormal golden finger will permit AGP card
plug into 845/850 mainboard then burn the chipset and cause mainboard
- Some graphic card are with jumpers to switch AGP 1.5V or 3.3V.
Please DO make sure it's jumpered at 1.5V before use it on Intel
