LOL. I can see what's coming next, "I want to overclock my microwave"

I mean, honestly, how much benefit do you expect to see from an overclock of a Playstation?

Nah - you don't want to do that - you'll screw up all the FMV stuff, and the audio stuff, which all rely on the speed of the CDrom I think!

The thing is it won't just be the audio that messes up, the programmers for the games are apparently so sloppy with there code it doesn't compensate for a faster CD drive and itll all bugg@r up

Sure, that's what they all say

Anyway, anybody bit the bullet and taken a look inside. I'm too afraid I'd break something, and I don't have any $$$ to replace a broken one.

Indeed, they don't. The main processor runs at 33Mhz, hence no heatsink needed.

Wow, that is slow. Guess it's not very precise then. N64 looks a lot clearer, what does it run at?
