Lin-Lin Tualatin to Socket 370 Adapter
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.
