I posted a while back w/ my frustrations trying to find out more about the
DOC pad on the EPIA5000 and 6000 and C3-800 boards. Through several
channels VIA replied back "this feature is discontinued and unsupported".
As soon as my SMT soldering kit comes in i want to try and mount a DOC on
the pad, move the jumper, power up and prey that i dont smell smoke..
Aparantly from what i have read elsewhere (i forget exactly where), the
early rev of the EPIA bios for these motherboards still contains the code
to use the DOC. So if all goes well, i should have more to tell in a few
If things dont go well, i might have to revert to following the traces on
the motherboard. UGH. Anyone got xray vision?
And I agree, such a promising void must be filled! =)
