Hello Mradu, for your instable Pericom adapter
I suggest to check power wires are firmly connected,
check the 4 pins connector of the bridge, it must
be completely pushed into the PSU female connector.
I experienced problems related to this 4 pins
ie : behaviour in 2D OK, but D3D bugs (in dxdiag or in 3dmark).
Maybe it can help.

I'm late.
A little video with some informations.

Happy new year for all 3dfx community people.

Special tip for Voodoo2 SLI Owners :

Look at the bridge specs --> pci runs @66mhz ...
Priced at 50 euros.
This french seller is a good one.

Hmmm looks like I'm gonnna hold off on buying a Geforce GTX! 3:D my money is most certainly going to a PCI-E 8x to PCI-x adapter w/extension cable.

*Copper cooled 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500 Mac*
Athlon 64 2800+ 2GB ddr-333 2-2-2-5 Geforce 6100 mobo. 3dfx, the zombie that won't die!

Thanks jix-reggio: I installed my voodoo5 and check it again.
Unfortunately the instability is still present, and the PCI-X bus can not be set under 100.

Can you post a link with your PCI 2 PCI-X adapter ? I might order one like yours. Need to see the prices first..

Any news or progress about your project ?

Follow your dreams !

Hi Mradu,
So you can’t fix this ? Huh, it’s a hassle !


As I said I bought a « Startech PEX1PCI1R for Intel server 1U » converter
This item is based on Pericom PI7C9111SL 66 mhz capable chip. The datasheet is very clear about this.
Here is a link on the adapter i bougt :
http://fr.startech.com/Cartes-Aditionelles-et-Peripheriques/Extension-de-fente/Carte-riser-PCI-Express-vers-PCI-x1-pour-serveur-IPC-Intel-1U~PEX1PCI1R

In my PC, it rans fine and stable, excepted when I did’nt connect correctly the 4 pins power wire as I said before. In the bios I just set the Pci burst lenght to 64 cycles and the Pci-E freq. to 100 or 101 mhz. I tested both on Pci-E 16X and 1X motherboard slots.

For the moment I cannot play with my hardware.

As stated in the datasheet, the chip needs 10% power more @66mhz (740 mW), you could try to set a dissipator on it to improve the cooling.

The V5500 Pci can run @70 mhz with Pci-E overclocking.

On Pci-E 105 mhz clock speed my V5500 is very stable on my Asrock Dual-Sata S939 motherboard.

Thermal pad and Copper on the VSA-100 back
helps overclocking at stock voltage.
This place gets very hot on o/c.

Here I tried 8 * Mos-C1 Enzotech.

Sorry, I wasn't on 3dfx.
Something else is currently in the 'pipeline'.
Will be ready in 15-30 days.
