Yes, the FCPGA is a socket system.  I have thermal compound and an Intel
Heat Sink on the cpu.  Have you seen any copper heat sinks?

My K6-2 450 used to lock up on me during heavy cpu usage when I had just the
case fan and a tiny little fan on the chip.

I bought a bigger fan + heatsink combo, and attached it to the processor
some thermal compount and now it runs really nice and cool.
I think the heatsink + thermal compound are the real miracle workers here.

I believe my total cost was around $20.

FCPGA is a socket system, right?
