My friend is considering buying a K6-2 300 CPU for his new computer, but one question came up...
does anyone know wether I/O voltage on the super-7 motherboard (The one for the k6-2) has a standard I/O voltage of 3.3V or is it sposed to be selectable....
I know the core voltage can vary.. (2.2V for the chip we saw)
the guy selling the stuff didn't seem to know
Thanks
Jon

I have one of these at home on a Chaintech motherboard. As far as I can tell, most m/bs come with a chart showing the voltages, and the jumpers you have to set. Mine was no problem, and I can send you the details. If the m/b autodetects the CPU you should have no problem whatsoever.

OK.......
But the problem was that the MB manual we saw for the one we were about to buy didn't mention I/O voltage.... the core voltage was adjustable to 2.2V as required....

Thats why I asked about wether the I/O voltage is standard. It aint the kind of mistake I'd like to make....

Check the web site of the motherboard manufactuer for jumper settings for that cpu.
Or check amd's web site for the correct/recommend volatages.

The CPU voltages are written on it....

The question is wether the 3.3V I/O voltage is standard for M/Bs using that chip.....

Hy,

Two voltages on motherboard :
V core : generally 2V to 3,5V ( for processor  - internal )
V I/O : 3,3V. All motherboards use this voltage ( interface processor to chipset - RAM etc..)
You must adjust Vcore with jumpers or dips or in your bios (Abit).
Sometimes it could be automatic.
With processor AMD K6-2 you can use 2,2V to 2,4V.
