My aptiva doesn't let me upgrade teh cpu until 200mhz MMX, only at 200mhz, without MMX.

I imagine it depends of the number of the build, right?, Where must i search to find the build of mine pc?.

This is the reason I went with the overdrive cpu. 200 mmx no problem and easy install without fiddling around. Switch 66.6 fsb via jumpers.

This was my info source and it lists machine types:

Ah, yeah, i alreadyremember where the problem was: my motherboard doesn't have the jumper to modify the voltage.

By the way, What solution did you choose for the heatsink?, i'm thinking about an 8x8x5cm copper one, but i can't find one... ^^u

I used a startech fanp1003ld for my normal 233 MMX (You can still buy them new very easily).
They are a little large, but they cool very good for socket 7.
As KSHIRZA1 pointed out, the overdrive comes with it's own fan and heatsink.
Changing the voltage on the motherboard isn't a jumper setting, you actually need to change a component.
If you can send the partnumber of your motherboard, we can lookup what options are available for your system, but an overdrive will almost always work if you can get one.

430HX/P1 233MMX/64MB/S3VirgeDX,Voodoo1SLI(King Shaman)/AWE32

645DX/P4Northwood 3,5Ghz(Oc)/512MB/Voodoo5500/Vortex2

It fits... only 41mm, although i have just above (partially) the cd drive. I have only 5cm height in that part.

My motherboard doen't have the jumper to reduce the voltage to put in a pentium 200 mmx, i already looked at that. The max cpu i can have is an pentium 200mhz.

Do you have an iso of the original 2144 m63 recovery disk. I have the same machine. My CD is scratched beyond repair my floppy works and trys to open the CD but fails half way thru writing the recovery.

I found a few online but the are in a foreign language.
