    Im running a couple of CyrixIII boxes. One on an A/Open MX3S (early rev[1])
    which works very nicely and the other a Gigabyte GAJR4. I've not observed any
    slowdowns over long periods but I haven't been looking for them either

    Check the CPU isnt overheating. Most processors will drop their clock if
    they get an overheat. Not that it should be easy to get a CyrixIII to overheat
    The Cyrix howto won't help you. The VIA C3 is in fact an IDT winchip derivative.

    [1] The later MX3S boards seem badly screwy with all cpus - or I got bad boards
    but those went back.
