    I've been screwing around with my old G3/400 B&W. Did a few upgrades tonight, overclocked to 450Mhz and saw about a 12% gain in performance, wich is not bad considering I didn't spend any money. I'm going to swap out the video card next, and also play around with the bus speed this time. Anybody got any insights on this? I'll keep everybody informed if anybody shows interest. :wavey:

    I upped my old 233 G3 to 266, great improvement, that was just a multiplier tweak.
    Upping the bus speed sees much better performance, as memory access is improved as well.
    1)Set the multiplier back to standard first otherwise your doubling up and it will probably crash.
    2)Make sure it doesnt cook
    3)???
    4)Dont expect g5/intel speeds
