It is an EPAI5000 - I did not realise that DOC was an option on these boards. Mine doesn't have this. A bit frustrating to see the empty space on the board.
Does anyone know how to specify this option, and what the extra cost is?
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 weeks.
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! =)
