    Pretty nice overclocking job on the Celery, there, trumpetman. I knew the 300A's were good, but you must have done some serious fan arrangement for that one, or were you just lucky?

    JFW: That is a nice overclocked G3. 350 MHz to 500 MHz is pretty good. What sort of an upgrade card (assume that's all it could be sinceit's a PowerCurve) is that and how did you go about overclocking it? I might overclock my G3 but if I could find a 350 MHZ G3 cheap that will do 500 I'm all for it.

    The G3 is a Powerlogix Powerforce. It's overclocking features are pretty good (although voltage adjustment aren't there) it provides well accessable dip switches on top of the daughtercard whereby you can set the FSB and Multiplier.

    It'll go as high as 600 if you go by those adjustments alone (I can't get it to boot past 500 in my case), but your success will really be luck of the draw.

    I have my G3 set to a FSB of 50 with a multiplier of 10, Voila! it runs fine as far as I can tell. I added active cooling to the small heatsink provided by Powerlogic by salvaging an old Socket 3 fan (this was the socket format used by the originl pentium. Now that's old!)

    It runs fine, albiet I need to add 128MB more ram to it.

    I decided to add a brief list of old computers:

    Long time ago: Commodore Amiga 500plus (I made a 80 second animation on it for my high-school art project way back in 1992-3), Commodore 64, Acorn Electron, ZX81 (yup, I had one of these!).

    Might want to check for a new driver for that. There was a flaw in a previous driver version that caused sound quality problems when a computer had 512MB or more of RAM such as yours.
