[i knw da answer]
i dunno, i never used it because i was afraid the bottom of the PC case would blow off
it gets like 2 extra mhz, at least it did on my 286/10. 12 mhz baby. Oh yeah.
it makes you PC go faster. DUH!
it sprays NOS onto your motherboard
closes your cpu wastegate
On my first computer, it went from 4.77MHz to 8MHz when you hit the Turbo button (Ctrl-Alt-'-'). Woohoo.
hitting the turbo button makes the led display say HI or whatever you set the jumpers too.
it makes your comptuer go to 3gighertz for a few seconds. YEAH
how long did it take to spool up?
I have it on my case right now too.... what it does is make the fans blow faster.
It's teh displacement on demand button!
it sends you to a future where people believe what the LED displays
At that time, most software (specially games) was written by programmers based on a specific machine speed. When newer, faster machines came out, these software would stop working properly because it would run too fast.
So,.. it's like a "switch" to slow down the machine for old software.
some games and shit would only work right with 8 mhz.. so you could turn turbo off and go from 25 or 33mhz to 8..which used to be the standard
didn't it actually slow the comp down?
