How Rip Apart An Athlon Written: 11/24/99 Written By: Moto Racer® Athlon Supplied By: AMK Services Now why would Moto want to take a perfectly nice AMD Athlon and rip it apart you ask? The first reason is because I can. The second is because if you want to overclock the AMD chip and you don't have a K7 overclocker's board like the Asus K7M, you will need to open up the Athlon to change it's speed settings. Another reason for ripping out the case is because the Athlon will run cooler once it's stripped down to bare PCB. The casing that house the CPU traps heat, not good if you plan to overclock.
While this article shows how to rip an Athlon apart, the same steps would be used if you want to take apart an old Pentium 2 since the housing is the same. So for those of you who have one of those nice SL2W8 PII-300 hanging around and want to remove the casing, just follow the same steps.
