i have read in many places that this chip can work without cooling system... is true? Mine is labelled on top “heatsink and fan required” 😐

You pretty much always need a heatsink and a fan is highly advisable if the heatsink isn't particularly big. These chips do get pretty hot even at 3.3V.

You need a board capable of 3.3V before you can use the 5x86. Chances are that your board is 5V only and that will fry the 5x86 sooner or later. Can you show a photo of the board ?

My board is capable for sure, the only cpu that can’t handle is the Pentium Overdrive. Is a SBC 486 really good equipped. The only bad thing is that not have a ZIP Socket and i must use some tool to detach the DX2 Cpu that is actually inserted
