    Unless your board supports 2.5 volts or lower core it’s unlikely a k6-2 would ever work without an interposer

    Your board may support early k6 chips and Cyrix up to 233mhz if the voltage regulator is beefy enough.

    Most HX boards were used with classic pentium chips to 200mhz, like won’t go much past that
    Well it is a PICMG board. I'm not sure what it supports for voltage, but I'm sure its rather flexible. The VRM looks rather overkill. More then one mosfet, etch with its own massive heat sink.

    It more likely has a massive heatsink because of being a linear regulator rather than having high power output capacity.

    That could be very well true.
    I still think its rather big.

    Easy enough to solve--what are the TO-220 part numbers?

    I'll post that when it arrives.

    Are you sure thats what that is, looking up TR-P2BX gives a lot of info on a slot one board. It was sold to me as a LUCENT P54C-408007193/Texas P54C 61-29907-00

    Defiantly linear, says so right on the TO-220, bath are a lt1584

    The data sheet says it can do 2.5v to 3.6V and upto 7amp.

    And it came with a 200mhz mmx Pentium

    Well, there you go--those TO-220s are dissipating the same amount of heat as your Pentium. Hence the big heatsinks.

    Yep. I think Ill sick with the 200mhz mmx and wait for a good deal on a super socket 7 board and run a 266mmx at 100mhz fsb with a lower multi.
