is it possible to OC the old PIIIs? my brother is running them and is thinking of upgrading or overclocking. here's his specs
Supermicro mobo (don't remeber which one, but its got onboard SCSI, BX chipset)
yamaha 6x burner
plextor scsi cd-drive
kds 17" monitor
ibm deskstar 20 gig (ata66)
segate 6.4 gig
WD 9 gig Caviar
Promise ata100 controler
if he decides to OC, he'll get a new mobo to OC, and run this system bare bones as a file or game server. What you guys think is the best option?

Old p3's tend to top out around 600mhz, so you may be able to squeeze a hundred or so Mhz extra out of each of those p3's with any luck.

I have a piii450
ATX133 motherboard version: vt82c686a
running 150/5x and getting 504 mhz.
140/4.5 only gets me 464mhz.
to get more than 504 you may have to up the volts. I have not tried..keep me posted on your findings. good luck.<FONT>
