    Yeah AMD's 586 133MHz CPU was for 486 boards and very easy to run at 160MHz even without a fan on the heatsink as that was my 1st o/c and that is still runnin' at my mother-in-law's place. :smokin:

    Well Intel had a similar version called the "486 Overclock" which ran at 120MHz as well. :smokin:

    Yeah and if we had access to some of today's heatsinks they probably would have gone a lot higher....my old dx4100 (actually 3*33) got up to the dizzying heights of 108 (3*36) with a lot of coaxing of the old mobo (actually got an electrician to fidget with the clock...dunno what he did but it didn't survive more than a couple of days)...that was the problem in those days...you didn't have the flexibility in the mobos/bioses
    The older I get...the better I was

    My overclocking experience, Was my first Pentium II 333 slot 1. I had this chip overclocked to a 385, I was happy with this. It did'nt run too well. Dum clock-lock on the chip.
