I know it's not an answer you are looking for but this motherboard does not really worth the effort to use it - even if it was not a clone/cheap one (it certainly is a budget mobo don't know if it really is a clone) the fact that it has no L2 cache at all is a red flag... is there something special about it?
Oh no, not particularly. Aside from the idea of doing a fun underdog PC with an interesting processor, there is nothing special about this motherboard for me, it's just that I have it and I wanted to use it.
If it won't work, so be it, I will dump it.
I just wish I could make sense of what it is or what is wrong before I do. Like I said, a few more tests with the memory (with FPM and 30pin sticks if I can get some - they could always be useful anyway) and then it goes into the trash. I'll start over and do a P133 build instead.
