I'm building a 486 computer. I plan on using a 100 MHz 486-DX4 that I have which I believe is about as fast as 486's went.
The motherboard I will use (Socket 3) appears to support putting a heatsink and fan over the CPU but I'm not sure if it is needed. The main PSU is already loud so I'd rather not use a fan/heatsink for the CPU if I don't have to. Although, since they don't make 486's any more I might want to reconsider.
So, is a heatsink/fan required for 486's or is it just recommended? I don't plan on over-clocking but at 100 MHz the heat might climb quite a bit.
