Be careful what you buy. The DX-4-100 chip is a 3.3 volt CPU. Unless your
motherboard supports a 3.3 volt VCC, you will blow out the chip. There is a
DX-4 "overdrive" chip which has a built in regulator and heatsink
(specifically designed for 5 volt systems). Lastly, be sure your BIOS can
handle the timing differences. For example, an older BIOS may not reliably
access floppy disks when using a DX-4 because software timing loops time
out too quickly. Newer BIOS versions accomodate various CPU speeds.
