Biostar M6VLR

Discussion in 'Biostar' started by Moderately Confused, Apr 12, 2004.

  1. Ok, so I know it's not the best board in the world, but its worked for me so
    far, and its been pretty stable. I'm running a PIII 800 Mhz chip in it and
    I've managed to get it to run stable at 915 Mhz. My question is, is there a
    way to change the voltage with a Biostar mobo? I've been through all of the
    settings in the bios and the only thing I could find is the FSB. I also
    don't see any jumpers on the board itself.

    Here is a link to the site:

    If the mobo voltages are alterable, it will be via jumpers and/or the BIOS.
    A quick glance of the manual shows neither option.

    The only hope is a "voltage mod", which is sometimes done by the enthusiasts
    crowd. Of course, this involves physically altering the mobo w/ resistors,
    soldering, etc.! Not for the faint hearted. And mostly reserved for
    popular, high-end mobo's anyway (iow, such a mod probably doesn't exist for
    your mobo).

    Short of these options, I don't know any other.

  3. The safest way is by jumpering the VID pins on the processor itself.

    The method I use it to strip a single wire from a ribbon cable and use a
    safety pin to punch holes though it, making sure it goes through the center
    of the wire bundle (not a trivial exercise). You then push the wire onto
    the desired pins.

    It's non destructive, if you don't slip and bend a pin, and

    You can only tie a pin to ground that way (would have to break or insulate
    a pin to get a high), so not all voltage choices are available but there's
    usually one close enough.

  4. Thanks all, I guess I'll have to settle for what I've got for now.
