    I have a Beige G3 266 Minitower. I have looked on xlr8yourmac.com about overclocking it and I haven't been able to find the best or easiest way to do this. Recently, I installed a very significant amount of cooling in my tower, so I am not really worried about burning the processor. Does anyone have ideas? Suggestions? Directions to point me in?

    How's that for starters? You can also go to another site and buy pre-made jumper/switch blocks for your machine...one of our long-time faves:

    Or you could check out the MacAddict April 2001 issue. They "cookbook" the overclock process. I tried the 300 Mhz combo. and it worked fine (I think it was jumpers on 1, 5, 6, 7 and terminals 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 are not"jumpered" )

    Since you can only increase the CPU speed in increments of 33.3 MHz, it depends on the ZIF. It may or may not run 300 well. With faster ZIF's, I've seen plenty of beige G3's running 500-533.
