This is a Totem Board as per http://www.ping.be/bios/

I am unable to access the Totem page however at http://www.totem.com.tw/

You may want to check www.tomshardware.com for overclocking

hope this helps,
Craig

Generally, overclocking doesn't work too well with the generic motherboards.  I'm not saying that it can't be done, but there are quality control problems with some of them.  Also, your CPU might not be overclockable from the start.  I suggest getting a better motherboard (with supports more clock settings, otherwise you'll be limited to how high you can overclock it) and a big-ass heat sink and fan (and possibly a 2nd fan for your case) to keep your CPU cool.  (How far you go with the cooling depends on how high you want to overclock).  Also, I think that some of the earlier motherboards don't have multipliers that go high enough.

I was able to access Totem's web pages but there was little there.

Totem also appears to have an FTP site: ftp://ftp.totem.com.tw/ but I could only find some unlabelled BIOSes and drivers their.

Your might try sending email to a Mr. Jason Ho at Totem's Tech Support <service@serv.totem.com.tw>.

Viper, I have VX and doing 75MHz just fine.

Commented:
VX97, perhaps???

Commented:
Hmmm, I don't think so. Some unbranded type with BIOS 10/03/96. www.ping.be/bios shows it at very start of VX section
(AWARD) with bunch of possibilities (PCchips, Chaintech, ... :) But 66x3 o/c not worked at all. And 75x2.5 I removed,
because it started to crash slighly more frequently (I lazy for DRAM timings game :)

Commented:
always thought that generation of Chipsets (PRE-TX-Series) didn't support anything higher than 66, except the HX, which did support 75... That was the only board that supported the Cyrix PR200+ (75 X 2)

But then again, My TX doesn't support 83 Officially, and still it runs 83... Go figure!

See you 'round, kiddo!
