I found this motherboard in my garage. I must have purchased it long ago.
It’s an “Intel shuttle HOT-569A” SpaceWalker.
It has some type of Pentium 233mhz. CPU.
I am not sure if this is an Overdrive CPU ?
Does anyone know where I can get a bios update and Win95 drivers ?
I also need a manual ?

Supports SDRAM and EDO Memory.
Which should I use ?
Up to 256mb of RAM.

This is going to be a Win95 build.
What Intel Chipset is this ?

It's what would be called for short a 430TX chipset. The CPU may be a retail boxed MMX, think it would have the overdrive shwoosh on the label if it was the MMX overdrive. Most "TX" boards should not need an overdrive to run an MMX, unless it was a "lazy upgrade" of a system that came with a P133 or something and owner just wanted to stick something right in, no messing with jumper settings.

I don’t have the proper cable for the “CPU fan to MotherBoard fan header connection”.
Anyone know the pin-out for these wires ?
The fan header has 3-pins where the CPU fan only has 2-pins.
The fan reads DC12v.

I have one of those sitting on my desk, I'll post a photo. Jan Steunebrink has a patched BIOS for that board that will aid in running a K6-2+ if you should ever want to.

So there is NO speed control on this Intel fan.
Would it be better to use a standard Intel Pentium MMX 233 CPU and this fan.
This fan has a 3-pin header connection.

Well, if you can find a suitable 3-pin header on the motherboard it could. If not, not.

The cooler you posted is a Socket A; they can work on some Socket 7 boards, but yours has capacitors very near the socket which would likely interfere with a Socket A cooler. Something like this Startech would work.

On your RAM question, why not use the SDRAM you already have, and just add another DIMM if you need to? The TX chipset caches up to 64 megabytes, so performance can actually be reduced if you add more; the only way around this is with a K6-2+ (or K6-3 or K6-3+) with their on die level 2 cache. I have a K6-3+ in my TX motherboard, and I have the motherboard's memory cache disabled since it reduced my benchmark scores.

I have a bunch of these. They are smaller and a good fit for Socket 7.

You've got the header onboard, so maybe stick in an offer for one of these Pentalpha EISCA skt 7 coolers

As far as I know intel never made 233 Mmx overdrive.

Okay, since I already had one of these CPU coolers on hand I just used it. It fits fine. It’s just TALL.
But the fan connector fits the motherboard fan header right and provides for fan speed control.
I found a Pentium MMX 233 in my CPU bin.
I will have to find a CPU fan power cable for the other CPU.

I read on the motherboard manual that this is a high end socket 7 motherboard with advanced features
which also supports WinNT, Novell Netware and many CPU types.

UDMA 33
SDRAM
EDO memory
512kb motherboard cache
Support for up to 256mb RAM.
USB
PS/2 mouse

It has an I.R. ( Infrared connector )
Does anyone know what this was used for ?

Also what do you think the Max supported hard drive capacity is ?
The manual does not state anything.
