Hi All,

Thanks for having me.

As the title suggests I'm looking for a motherboard to support that CPU with sufficient RAM and expansipn slots.

Any recommendations?

Overdrives will not necessarily work in all 486 motherboards. The following is for IBM's PS/1 but the principle applies to other motherboards as well

Do you already have an Overdrive chip? Otherwise, try to buy a complete 486-100 with matching motherboard. Whole system that works would be better.

I think Overdrive is a bad value. The motherboard supporting an Overdrive 486 socket will often be much slower than one designed to have 486-100 placed in the primary socket.

Yes I know the reply is late sorry.

Thank you for the information :)

I've bought a 486 with a 66mhz CPU

I've got more questions though, but I'll start a new topic for those.
