    No. Nor will there ever be.

    At any rate, the fastest G4 upgrade CPUs are already overkill for the slow FSB of G3 & G4 machines.

    Even if you could, and you could get past the bus speed issues Blackadder brought up, the case isn't in any way capable of keeping the processor at operating temperatures. It wouldn't even get past the initial startup before the overheating protection would kick in and shut it back down. Plus the power draw would probably be far too much for the motherboard or the PSU to handle.

    Actually, it's be a pretty funny experiment. But again, no.
