Re: Yet another 286 build.

Good to see this coming online. Will follow your progress. The set of components is random indeed, but that adds flavor. Keep in mind that the Promise EIDE Pro ISA does not do well even with modest overclocks. 286 is fun, not sure where you felt negativity towards it. Point us to the sorce of evil …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

FIC 4386-VIO Had this motherboard for some time. It came with 486 socket only and solder pads for 386 CPU. Today slapped on it a 40MHz rated AMD 386DX from dead motherboard. Took a moment to figure-out the jumper settings until it lit on 386 hardware path. Ultimateretro and stason contain incomplete …

Thank you for the photo. Didn't know about this motherboard until now. Online search reveals nothing, including one of my previous posts where i misspelled the PB4 to PM4. Sorry. Looks like an assembly with potential. Up to 1Mb L2 cache. Voltage regulator for 3.45/4/5V. Clock generator goes to 83MHz …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Hey barry07. I think there is some misunderstanding. I only have 2 versions of Abit's PCI/IDE Socket 3 motherboard. Never heard of PM4. Can you post a photo of it ? Linked the the Abit PB4 jumper settings in my previous post. All versions before 1.5 cannot go past 160MHz - some circuitry is missing. …

Diamond stealth dram does not show issues here but i dont run winquake, only q1. Same applies to virges pci. But if you see issues with winquake then they will show here as well. Dont have ATI cards so cannot comment on them. SiS are the better chipset overal compared to UMC, in my opinion. They are …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

@barry07 Do you mean the jumper settings of the Abit PB4 motherboard or the datasheet of the chipset ? The first is available here: https://stason.org/TULARC/pc/motherboards/A/ABIT-COMPUTER-CORPORATION-486-PB4-REV-1-2.html The second is here: https://datasheetspdf.com/datasheet/M1487.html Hope this …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Ok. With Cirrus Logic VLB cards i see the same problems as you shown above when sound is on - tried with 5426 5428 and 5434. So weird. Tried also with GD-5480 PCI and few S3 Virge versions - all came clean. Finally. I confirm that Quake 1 freaks out on this board when 64Mb RAM is present. Regardless …
