Is anyone familiar with PowerLeap products? Can you actually use them to
successfully upgrade the Pentium 3 processor?

    I have not used the PowerLeap stuff, but I know someone who has one
    installed right now. We got our PIII-600E hardware at the same time, he
    upgraded with PowerLeap and mine is busy running Windows Server 2003, IIS
    6.0, SQL Server 2000, and a host of other server applications.

    My friend reports considerable increase in some applications, but not a
    noticeable change in things like games (Wolfenstein, Neverwinter Nights) or
    boot times. Also, the installation was not for the faint-of-heart. He had
    a helluva time getting his existing hardware to cope with the new processor,
    and I was at a loss to help him other than recommending various memory and
    bus clock timing combinations. A call to the folks at PowerLeap finally got
    the correct settings, which I would have never guessed.

    Good Luck,

    Carl

    hoping to find someone that actually has tried the stuff, I'm a moron that
    is skeptical of mass hype and advertising in general.

    I installed one on a Gateway 500 Essential back when Gateway actually
    made computers and actually supported what they built. It took my
    Essential from 500 MHz to 1.2g. BUT! the processor on the upgrade was
    a Celeron which I didn't care for since I had been running a PIII.
    However, it installed just fine and the computer recognized it right
    off without me having to change any settings manually at all. I did
    notice quite a bit of enhanced performance.

    One note to beware of. Make sure that if getting one that you ask the
    people at Powerleap if you need the optional hold down clamps for the
    specific MB you are using. I didn't know to ask and found out the
    clampdowns on my MB didn't match up to the clampdown points on the
    upgrade so I had to have the optional clampdowns shipped from
    Powerleap. Wasn't but a couple of bucks but delayed me for a few days.
