Ideally I'd like to figure out how to remove the CPU's plastic casing and adjust the CPU multiplier in a manner similar to the gold finger devices (GFD), http://www.cpu-world.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=28887 I'd like to run the board at 850, 900, 950, and 1000 MHz to determine the fastest stable operating speed. Doesn't seem like I'll run across a GFD anytime soon so I'd have to do some messy solder work, then remove the mess.
I've never used either SlotA nor a GFD, but you can look to Robert B (Bobby B?!) for guidance on how to open the cartridge.
I saw that he had a hard time removing the slot A enclosures. Would have been nice to see the photos embedded with the text so it is easier to follow. When I messaged CPU-Shack about removal of the enclosures, he said he had no issue whatsoever. Thus I'm not sure why the discrepancy here.
