  1. Why isn't there any external cache?
    The Intel Pentium Pro Processor includes a built in L2 cache of 256 or 512K thus eliminating the need for a secondary external cache on the motherboard.
     
  2. What are VRMs?
    A VRM is an IC controlled voltage regulator required by newer Pentium Pro processors to operate properly.  The CPU will program the VRM according to it's voltage needs.  Running without a VRM may cause damage to the system and or CPUs.  Be aware that older Pentium Pro CPUs may not need a VRM.  Contact Intel or your dealer for more information.
