A Google search on   m912 pcchips   turned up 
http://mobokive.dyndns.org/Archive/PcChips/486_M9xx/m912/
which is an index of links including one for a manual in German, but 
with no board version numbers. I didn't try to download anything 
from it. Good luck.

Another link that turned up in the search led me to 
http://motherboards.mbarron.net/specs.htm
which shows two entries for the M912 v:1.7, one of which is noted to 
have fake chips. Following up more links I came to an image with the 
following text superimposed on it:

        Our techs at WebHQ Canada sliced open a complete set of these 
        fake chips finding only hollowed plastic inside. Don't be 
        fooled by what the BIOS reports, dload our cache test utility, 
        result = zero cache.... These fake chips are soldered directly 
        to board without sockets and the jumpers are hardwired to read 
        256K.

There was also supposed to be a downloadable manual on this site, 
but the download link failed when I tried it.
