Actually, I've been running my AMD 586-133 ADW at 160mhz (40mhz bus
speed) for several months now with NetBSD 1.1 and a decent heatsink +
heatsink compound.  Haven't experienced a single problem, and have
compiled several kernels.  The ADZ chips might be made to greater heat
tolerances, but my ADW hasn't been complaining.

Then again, I'm not too concerned about burning out a $39 cpu.
