Asus 486SV2G motherboards may require 5V CPUs
« on: September 05, 2015, 12:23:27 AM »
just to bookmark a note i found on the net:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.asus/_eVsLLI7GTM

this may be correct or incorrect; not sure but:

The ASUS 4866SV2G motherboard does not support 3V CPUs like the Intel 486DX4/100MHz.
The 486SV2GX4 or PVI-486SP3 supports the 3V CPUs.
For the 486SV2G, you can upgrade your CPU to 486DX2/66MHz, AMD 486DX2/80MHz.
