Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can give me any info on how to overclock a PowerPC 5260/120 Mhz with 32 mb RAM and OS 9. A non-soldering soulution is preferred, but any help whatsoever would be nice. Thank you!
Alex

According to LowEndMac, you can only upgrade that machine by replacing the motherboard with one from a 5400 or 5500.
