I recently purchased (but have yet to receive) a FIC-VIP-IO motherboard.
I’ve seen mention of members of the forum running Cyrix and AMD 5x86s in this board, and was wondering what the appropriate jumper settings would be. Would an Am5x86 use the P24D settings, and the Cyrix 5x86 use the Cyrix M7 settings? I believe the M7 is 5V, so I’m wondering how to set the voltage properly for the Cx5x86 in such an instance.
It appears that there are a couple of later BIOSes available for this board: (i) 4.26, which seems to have a date of 1/18/95 and (ii) 3.27, which seems to have a date of 06/16/97. Is one of these BIOSes preferable to another for running a 5x86—be it Cyrix or AMD—on this board?
Also, what voltages does this board seem to support with the onboard VRM? Is it just 3.3V/5V? I’ve seen somewhere on here that the FIC-VIP-IO2 can support 3.45V/3.7V/4V, aside from these standard voltages.
To anyone who owns this board and has found success with such a configuration, I’d appreciate your insight!
Thank you again!
