    The BH6 is the newer one and is very easy to overclock with. There really is no catch to the overclocking of a 300a. As long as the chip makes it within a reasonable voltage range (2.0 - 2.3) and...

    overclocking the chip will decrease its life span but I don't see how it would affect benchmarks. I imagine the cause is fragmented disk files, possible registry cluttering, or some other sign of...

    Oops... yeah the computernerd packages have paste in them. At 450 the dual should be enough, at higher you might consider the sandwich. Just remember bus speeds other than 66 and 100 can cause...

    It mainly depends on how high you are expecting to go. At 2.0v most retail 300a chips will stay cool enough with the fan that comes with it. Some retails will require more though, depending on how...

    If it was me, I would put all your hardware together and boot it up at 300mhz. Set up the drivers, etc... then once you get it set up go to the BIOS and bump the bus speed to 100mhz. Be sure you...

    Try to set the voltage up in .1 steps, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, but do NOT go above 2.3. It sounds like you might make it at 2.1. Try that and see if it is more stable. Use only 66mhz or 100mhz bus. Once you...

    Celeron 300a at 300? or 450? As long as the bus speed can be changed to 100 and your voltage will run at 2.0-2.3 it should have no trouble working.

    I purchased mine at Minotaur (www.minotaur.com). I got 300a pre-tested at 450, BH6 board, 64 megs ram. I'm now looking around at video cards. TNT is a no, voodoos are all no, maybe I'll get a $25...

    Between the 2 choices you have given I'd go with the AMD. However my recommendation would be a celeron 300a with BH6 board running at 450mhz. I know I keep pushing it but I cannot get over the...

    I plan on buying a retail celeron 300a and running it at 450 (surprise). I am buying it from a company that stocks SL32A and pre-tests these chips at 450. I plan on buying a mid tower case and am...

    Heh... from benchmarks I've seen the Cyrix 300 runs about like a K6 266 on integer and about like a P-133 on floating point. The fpu in the cyrix is pathetic. For about $10 more you can get a...

    Depending on the type of board you are using, you could probably go up to a K6 300mhz. If your board has the multipliers and voltage settings you need it should be able. Please give your board type...

    PC 100 memory will work at 66 mhz. If the one you buy does not overclock I would exchange it. 90% of 300a's will run 450 at 2.2v or less just fine.

    is MX300 for me??

    I currently own an ISA SB AWE 32 and have absolutely no problems using this card. It sounds nice to my ears and has been a great card. I also appreciate the fact that it will run in Linux.

    I...

    The celeron 300a runs at 2.0 volts... this might be one reason it is rebooting. Another problem could be memory... that's kind of a long shot but bad memory can cause the computer to just reboot. ...

    There is a particular type of P2 300 that is built with a .25 micron core. For unknown reasons (stupidity?) Intel made these enhanced 300s with the exact same core as a P2-450. Thus these will run...

    The Celeron is always the better choice. The celeron 300a (poor man's p2-450) is about $100, the K6-2 350 is about $135, the 400 is like $260. Also the BX chipset is much more stable with new AGP...

    There should be no reason to run your hard drive at a lower speed as long as you do not use any other bus speed than 66 or 100. a lot of people like to use 112 but I really fail to see why since you...

    It sound very much like faulty memory... I had a computer that would go black when I entered the BIOS and it turned out to be bad memory. Try that before buying a new video card. 64 megs is the...
