*Questa mainboard supporta tutte le cpu a singolo voltaggio (V-I/O = V-Core ). Tali cpu sono : Amd K5, IDT Winchip C6/W2/W2A ed alcune cpu Cyrix della serie 6x86. La cpu piu' veloce che si puo' installare senza modifiche hardware , adattatori, o VRM opzionali , e' l' IDT W2A 233MHz.

*This board supports all single voltage CPUs. These are the intel Pentiums, AMD K5, IDT C6/W2/W2A and some early Cyrix 6x86 CPUs. The fastest you can put in without hardware modification, adapter sockets or a VRM, is an IDT W2A 233 MHz.

Optional VRM Socket *Usando un VRM (Voltage Regulator Module) opzionale, questa mainboard puo' supportare le cpu con doppia alimentazione (V-Core diversa da V-I/O), ma in alcuni modelli il socket in cui inserire il VRM e' assente .

*With an additional VRM, this mainboard can support mmx cpus, but in some models this socket is substitutes by a solder pads!

How to update Motherboards BIOS PC-CHIPS

1. Check to see what type of flash chip you have in your Mb. There are two types of flash memory, Large Block and Small Block. We label them as "L" or "S" respectively. When you first turn the computer on. The screen will show the BIOS date code and a letter with "L" or "S".
2. Down load the right type of BIOS according to what type of flash chip you got in your MB.
3. Down load the right BIOS flash utilities.
4. Make sure the Voltage on the flash chip were set to 12V on your Mb
5. Make a clean Bootable Disk that has no config.sys and autoexec.bat file. Copy BIOS file and Flash Utility to the floppy.
6. Put this bootable diskette in drive A: and boot the system into A:>
7 Run award or AMI flash utility to flash the bios.

Come aggiornare il bios di una Motherboard PCCHIPS

1. Occorre innanzitutto capire che tipo di flash eeprom sia installata sulla vostra mainboard. Ci sono due tipi di memorie flash eeprom, Large Block and Small Block. Noi indicheremo tali tipi di eeprom rispettivamente con le etichette "L" o "S" . Quando accendete il vostro pc, sul monitor apparira' la data di rilascio del BIOS ed una lettera , che sara' "L" oppure "S": dal tipo di lettera potete dedurre anche il tipo di flash eeprom installata e quindi anche il corretto aggiornamento bios da usare.
2. Scaricate l'aggiornamento bios adattoal tipo di flash eeprom installata sulla vostra MB.
3. Scaricate l'utility corretta per effettuare il flash.
4. Assicuratevi che il voltaggio del bostro chip flash sia settato a 12V usando l'apposito jumper presente sulla MB
5. Create un disco di Boot privo dei file config.sys ed autoexec.bat. Copiate il file BIOS e la Flash Utility su tale floppy.
6. Inserite il floppy nel drive A: ed effettuate da esso il boot
7 Eseguite l'utility Award o Ami per flashare il bios.

The difference beetwen Pc Chips M507 (Fugutech M507) and Amptron PM7600

One difference between the Pc Chips M507 mainboard and the Amptron PM7600 mainboard is a different name of multiplier_factor and cpu_speed_selector jumpers. In the PcChips M507 the JP11 and JP12 (cpu speed selectors) jumpers have the same function as the JP8A and JP8B jumpers in the Amptron PM7600; the JP13 and JP14 (internal clock speed selectors) jumpers in the PcChips M507 have the same function as JP9A and JP9B jumpers in the Amptron PM7600.

Using original bios, this mainboard supports up to pentium 133MHz, but, after bios upgrade, it supports up to Pentium 200 MHz. See the new setting scheme :

Differenza tra la Pc Chips M507 (Fugutech M507) e la Amptron PM-7600

Una delle differenze tra la Pc Chips M507 e la Amptron PM7600 consiste in un differente nome del jumper multiplier_factor per settare il fattore di moltiplicazione e del jumper cpu_speed_selector per settare la velocita' della cpu. Nella PcChips M507 i jumper JP11 e JP12 (cpu speed selectors) hanno la stessa funzione del jumper JP8A e JP8B nella Amptron PM7600; i jumper JP13 e JP14 (internal clock speed selectors) nella PcChips M507 hanno la stessa funzione che hanno i jumper JP9A e JP9B nella Amptron PM7600.

Usando il bios originale , tale mainboard supporta correttamente cpu pentium fino a 133MHz, ma effettuando un aggiornamento bios essa supporta Pentium fino a 200 MHz. Fate riferimento al seguente nuovo schema di settaggio
