I was just examining my IA-1 and I noticed a clock multiplier chart printed on the bottom of the motherboard. Like the front side bus chart on the top, it corresponds to 3 surface mount things (resistors?) elsewhere on the board. These things have the option of connecting a central point with an "A" or a "B". Both charts (FSB and multiplier) have asterisks next to one of the settings indicating the default configuration (which happens to correspond to a 266 Mhz CPU). Assuming the bios itself would support it, it would seem resoldering these resistors in the correct configuration would let the system fully recognize a faster chip. Anyone daring enough to give it a try?
(I'd offer pictures of the charts and corresponding components but my camera literally just burnt out (smoke and all) as I went to take some photos)
