Flytech B58 Motherboard - any experiences?

Post by moondog »

Hello together,

lately I digged out a mini pc with this mainboard, it uses the MVP4 chipset and supports even the K6-3 as well as 512 MB RAM... other features are IDE and mini IDE on board, 2 usable PCI slots with riser, front USB, DoC socket, LAN on board and so on...

I wanted to build in a K6-3+ but then the whole machine refuses to work, it doesn´t matter how much vcore I burn on it. With a K6-3 400 AHX it runs well but I wanted to put in an ATZ for some precious overclocking as it could reach much higher speed with lower Vcore and less heat... The BIOS says also K6-3 but I don´t get a clean system-boot... never...

So I wonder if those cpu´s are that incompatible?

Atm, the system is running with a 40 GB 3,5" IBM IDE HDD at 7200 rpm, 512 MB MT SD-RAM, a VIA-USB-2.0 card and the mentioned AHX and sucks about 24 watt in idle and nearly 40 watt under load... I thought about using a 2,5 fast notebook hdd instead to drop the power consumption again, even though I´m also playing with the idea to get a PCI grafixcard as the TridentBlade core is very, very lame...

I found parts of the manual at the net with a few jumper settings and so on but nothing more, no BIOS updates, no manuals, no drivers, nothing...

So I wonder if anyone already got his hands on such a machine?

Thanx in advance,

You could try checking Jan Steunebrinks site to see if there is an updated bios available there. Apart from that you might be out of luck. The K6-2+ and K6-3+ do require an updated bios to be recognized by the mobo.
