I have no idea if you're old enough to remember the "Turbo" buttons on late '80s/early '90s machines. With "Turbo" off, they'd run at 8MHz for compatibility mode. With it on, they'd run anywhere from 25MHz to a blazing 66MHz!!!!

ObOldGuy: I once had a machine fail an install of SCO Unix (this was before they were evil) because it was ... [wait for it] ... too fast. There was a spin-delay loop in the Adaptec 1542 driver that failed on a fast machine. I was LMAO when they told me my box was too fast.
