I have a 486 system I enjoy using but would really like it to upgrade it to the best it can be (before costs become silly)
although my first pc was a 486 I am still fairly unfamiliar with the differing socket types and requirements etc.
I blindly got a 486 dx4 100 for it without even thinking about sockets or voltages. I have since checked and the curent sx50 is a 5v chip and the dx4 a 3v. There are no voltage jumpers on the board so I wont be able to use it.
What cpu would I be able to upgrade to on this system? The board has settings for up to a dx2 66 but the socket says it can accept overdrive chips. Something I have never seen in person before.
The usage of this machine is DOS and early windows games. Windows 95 is installed and as expected it isnt exactly snappy.
I have since found JP6 which the case just labels "Default pins 1-2". It does not describe what the jumper is used for. Could potentially be a voltage switch?! The PC is a trigem 486/33mm and hard to locate any information about other than what is printed on the case.
