I leave it as is. It is not for tinkering with it. For tinkering I have several Socket A and 754 systems.

Bonus: Also I have a Gateway 2000 SOLO 9100 laptop from 1997 with a Mobile Intel Pentium MMX 150MHz with 48MB RAM, 5GB HDD, Yamaha sound card, that runs also Windows 3.1 and Windows 98SE. Laptop works, but it have battery dead (only AC power), and also the casing is not in a very good shape. Also I don't tinker with it, I leave it as is.
