Absolutely. Back in those days, if guys got a 400MHz overclock out of those chips, they were thrilled. Make sure you have good cooling.

I don't know which one that was. I remember the socket 478 ones not being spectacular overclockers. My memory is a bit fuzzy though. Either way, it's good for a beginner overclocker to get their feet wet on a machine that isn't daily driven.
