You guys misunderstood the premise of this build! It’s supposed to be an experiment how far I can push a socket 5 system. My super period correct systems are my upcoming socket 7 build and the socket 370 pentium 3 build. I got the SB live out of my socket 462 athlon build since that motherboard has built in sound and is just simply an XP machine (don’t need special sound card for that build)
Nobody really tried to stick a K6-233ANR in a socket 5? Cmon guys I’ve read that at least one person has done it!!
I'm not sure who you're referring to, but I'm at least one of those who did that. Much more so, because I used a full blown K6-2.
The trick up my sleeve was a VRM header on said board, which allowed me to use any CPUs with dual power planes I wanted. You will have a limited experience with just a single 3.3V rail.
