"As it was, the 386 happily chugged along regardless."

The 386 was a very good little processor. So was the PowerPC, which went on to power a lot of printers. We had one Lexmark which failed due to a borked cpu fan; instead I glued a small heatsink on the processor with a little silver loaded epoxy and it worked just fine.
