Digging through my stash, I uncovered my original MB :D . It's a Socket 3 with a blown SiS 85C496 :cry: . I'd like to find a replacement SiS (quad-pack replacement is gravy for me), but in the meantime, what can I do with the processor in other Socket 3's I have laying around?

The processor is labeled:
A 9714CPA

It's in a Quality (yea right) 486F55, in it's time, it was a real screamer. I have a Genoa TurboExpress 486PCI, and an unknown Manuf. 4SGS-3VL with a BIOS string 10/26/95-SiS-85C471B/E/G-2C4I9000-00. Both Socket 3, with 486DX2/66's. The 486F55 manual says the CPU speed is jumpered to 33MHz. This kind of confuses me since the actual speed BIOS reported at the time was 133MHz. Can someone enlighten me further? :?

33MHz is the bus speed on the outside, the 133MHz is internally in the processor.
