I took the top off of my K6-3 400 about a month ago. I used a flathead screwdriver to pry it off but i wouldnt recommend doing that. I cracked the corner but it still worked. The actual CPU is under the hood, looks just like the pictures you see of the AMD thunderbirds. I didnt see a big difference it temp. maybe 1-3 degress less. In my opinion it is not worth the risk. But if you decide to pop it off, the only thing holding it on is 4 little spots of glue, 1 on each corner.

You would be better off getting a used super seven somewhere. That chip should do a 100FSB and a 3x mult and still be loads faster than the 333 you are running now!!

If you would like to try it though, up the voltage a hair and see if the 75FSB boots! You will most likely need better cooling, those chips run a little warm! If it don't boot, back off the mult some! The faster bus at similar Mhz's is beter!

I wouldn't buy a new one though with the price of cpu/mobo's the way thay are!
