    check this out , I didn't do it but it blew my mine


    this old pentium 1 mmx, that was running xp. It was pretty much useless except for downloading. So i thought id spice it up a little bit. So i decided i would oil-cool it and overclock it as much as possible. I have it @ 200 mhz up from 166, would be higher but my bios has no clock mulitplier, nor any way to change the voltage. And the 2 voodoo video cards are @ 109 mhz up from 90. here are a few pics.... ignore the not so great pic quality.

    Is that board literally in contact with oil?
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    only problem there is oil isnt that good a conductor of heat, or the removal of heat lol

    but its a nice trial lol

    i once saw a guy who mod up a bar fridge and enclosed his box in it , man the whole thing ran at 4 deg c , and he o/c it till you almost could see the screen for artif/s, but it kept running

    but man i give you this , 10 points for trying lol, its like the old heat exchange units aircraft used to use, you need some way to cycle the oil through a cooling system to dispense the built up heat

    keep trying man you will get there lol

    Wouldn't Windows 2000 be better suited for that?

    yeah, wi woulda thought so too, i had a problem running xp on a 500mhz amdk6-2, with 256mb ram. so i switched to 2000 and no probs

    infact, would xp even allow you to install on that machine.

    it isn't mine, but I believe so
    and he's not circulating the oil, its going to get hot,
    I wonder if you could cook some corn dogs or funnel cake
    I just posted this cause I had never seen anything like it

    man you can install xp on a 486 if its got enought ram , xp is a ram hog .

    about twice as much as win 2000,

    I woulda thought the oil would have done some damage to the board, but apparantly not
