Rumor has it that Mike Ford may have mentioned these words:

Unforch, with the density of the traces & datapaths necessary on newer
motherboards, you'll surely ruin the motherboard drilling thru it at the
CPU socket area... not good for the operation of the computer, IMHO. ;-)

There are some Pentium AT motherboards that have a thru-hole under the chip
socket for support... if you found other ways to support the mobo and you
are *very* good with small tubing, you might be able to work this to your
advantage... but it would be tricky work and I'm not sure how much benefit
you'd see from it.

Take care,

Recycling is good, right???  Ok, so I'll recycle an old .sig.
If at first you don't succeed, nuclear warhead
disarmament should *not* be your first career choice.
