|The Lin Lin is a Socket 370 Tualatin Adapter that lets you utilize up to Intel Pentium 3 and Celeron 1.4Ghz CPUs in older coppermine capable motherboards by providing the necessary electrical modifcations. This adapter will NOT adapt a PPGA Mendicino Celeron 533 or lower socket to the Tualatin FCPGA2 core, your motherboard MUST be coppermine FCPGA1 capable.

Lin-Lin Tualatin to Socket 370 Adapter7/22/2011
The Lin-Lin Socket 370 Adapter allows you to install a Tualatin Pentium III on a motherboard that normally allows only Coppermine Pentium III CPUs. I have three Lin-Lin Adapters installed, each with a 1.4GHz Pentium 3. Two are on Gigabyte GA-6VXC7-4X-P motherboards and one is on a Tyan Trinity 400 version M. All three currently work fine using the default jumper settings. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to get these things to work. I suspect there may be a problem with the pins always making full contact with the socket on the mobo. In one case, I used a much too heavy heatsink. As long as the motherboard was horizontal, it worked. When vertical, the weight of the heatsink stressed the socket and the computer no longer booted.
