  1. Yes , the www.elhvb.com is a must have for all old-timers !!! They host two bios databases , the mobokive and the kuriaki and they also host many manuals for old boards. They sure deserve a donation , for all support that they offer.
  2. The early Jan 1997 screenshot of the QDI ftp shows very few options https://web.archive.org/web/19970130115152/http://www.qdigrp.com/html/bios.html You are looking for this one (with UMC um8886f / um8881f chipset) https://www.elhvb.com/webhq/models/486pci/p4u885.htm Your best shot at the moment , is to test one of those bios that are still available at the old mobokive archive. https://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/Archive/Qdi - Legend/bios/486/index.html The worst scenario is that you will programm the new bios chip but the board will not start. Start with the 885v23 , it was made for the P4U885P3 (it looks very similar to yours). http://www.amoretro.de/2012/09/qdi-mp4-p4u885p3-pcb-v2-0-umc-88818886-486-pci-motherboard.html
  3. Very hard nowadays to find a 486 mobo bios. Do you have the ability to check if a certain bios is the right for your board ? Can you unzip and test with somekind of utility ?
  4. Well , the two month period is for people that dont plan to take a summer holiday and stay home i guess ? But , most people (at least in Europe) usually plan their summer holidays in August. Take that into consideration please.
  5. Discounts are always nice. Any link ?
  6. Nice result , but submitted to wrong cpu category. These cpu's are Pentium EB (fsb 133) not E (fsb 100)
  7. Why no Gigabyte Soc Force in the list ?
  8. True The pll device the Japanese firm FANATIC was selling back then as PLL01 , would require soldering to certain points , to take care of the different clocks for floppy and usb For example the P3B-F
  9. Yeah That board with the HIP voltage regulator , did NOT have the easy mod of the FB sense pin (we perform in common cases). As for the 150FSB limit ... TurboPLL only , area. http://www.ne.jp/asahi/simanto/oc/_borders/controller_1.jpg
  10. Well done. Very nice score @DDC P.S. Hmmm ... million dollar question ? Do i have this board in my collection ? Weekend pc-graveyard search cooming
  11. It's kind of a common problem with validations on old systems. The clock fluctuation is huge sometimes. But we always submit what cpu-z reports in its database. So , the correct score is 210.05
