I've got a few socket 7 boards, not sure what exactly "Super" socket 7 means???...
Do you need: SDRAM support?, AGP?, 83/100mhz Bus?, 1MB cache?

No, the SS7 supports the faster 100MHz FSB AMD and Cyrix and IDT CPUs. I have a couple running 450 MHz AMD K6-2 CPUs--running at 120MHz FSB yet.

Would you be interested in something like what I have here?

EDIT: Not sure mine's a Super 7, but according to the silkscreened jumper guide on the board you can set it for up to a 300MHz CPU.

The main problem with boards like this is they're full of electrolytics and sooner or later they seem to rear their ugly heads. I've got a pile of these boards, some of which are (were) among my favorites and few, if any are still working.

Oh, I already re-capped my board. It was working, but a little unstable when I got it. Seemed to be doing fine after I replaced the electrolytics.

my board is a EPOX EP-MVP3G2. unfortunately it only has 2 ISA slots but it has AGP, 100mhz bus option, 1MB L2 cache, supports SDRAM. it has the latest BIOS and will run a k6-III+ 450mhz. I ran it with a k6-III+ OC to 550mhz stable for awhile.

Just got on this forum. Trying to find out what system I have.
It has a AT type motherboard, TX Pro-II with 3 ISA sockets. It boots to bios. It takes strange power supply, connectors to motherboard not at all like todays 20 or 24 pin.
I will be trashing out motherboard with all its boards and cables and the power supply.
Interested, any more things I should look at like what cpu it has?

TX Pro-II is PC Chips rebranding of the SiS 5598 chipset. Sis 5598 was a solid third party low end chipset. PC Chips had a well deserved for being cheap to the point of fraudulent like this relabeling chipsets as Pro versions of much more expensive Intel chipsets.

Check the CPU type; TX Pro supported some of the more unusual Pentium competitors like IDT's WinChip.

For the motherboard, some TX Pro-II systems had an external bracket designed to handle PS/2 and USB ports. That bracket may be worth more than the entire motherboard. They are scarce,

The power supply connector is probably the old AT style. Providing a picture would confirm that.

It has a board for a phone modem, a bracket for, a vga monitor, a snd and joystick, a printer, serial and reverse of a printer.
