The customer had purchased a 286 or 386 (can't remember which) but had those stupid cases with the TURBO button and the LED display that showed the SPEED. He brought the machine back to the shop because it wasn't running at the fastest speed according to the display. No amount of explaining would convince him the button did nothing on this motherboard so it was find the "manual" for the case so the speed could be set correctly. In order to make him happy after his complaining, his machine even got a speed boost according to the display.
