Does anyone know which direction should I push this onto the socket? Pins are symmetrical i.e. it goes in any direction

See the rised dot in the corner? It should be aligned with the cutted socket corner.

Upper right corner of the FPU (where the additional bump is) must be aligned with the lower right corner of the socket (where the edge is cut instead of being peaked).

Got a staggering 1.6 FPS

You gotta pump those numbers up. Those are rookie numbers.

I know... I have a lazy-ass math processor there apparently. I am open for suggestions though 😀

Tighter memory timings, Cyrix co-processor and Cyrix 486 CPU, some late board with 486 era chipset also should help.

I tried but timing values will go back to original on reboot... it keeps other settings though so I assume it is not the battery, rather it just does not accept certain timings? Also, this is a late Unichip board which was produced in a 486 version as well.
