I have two mainboards to test Socket 7 CPUs : Gigabyte GA-5AA and ASUS P5A-B. I have problem with stability when I enable CPU's cache L2 in BIOS. Cache L2 from CPU not working with cache from mainboard - this is a problem ?

How is in notebooks ... They have integrated cache on motherboard ?

What problem are you specifically having?

Note that the CPU L1 and L2 are enabled as a unit (unless you specifically disable the CPU L2 using third-party utilities - diagnostic mode). The BIOS only has control over the "total CPU cache" and the motherboard cache (in this case it would be called an L3 cache).
