In the spirit of ckbone's I-Opener tips threads, I'm starting a thread with links to important threads in the past. This will help keep the information (much of which has fallen off the radar screen) easily accessible in the future. Feel free to post to this thread, with a brief description of what the original thread contained, and a link to the thread. Use a backslash to make the link clickable, and trim the end of the html in the link after the Post=<number>, which helps keep the text wrap formatting of the page OK.
As an example, the following thread started by Solder Boy on the K6-300 CPU upgrade was one of the first to discuss hardware hacks for CPU upgrades:
