Currently it's at 450 and very stable, with 2.0v at temperature reaching as high as 38C.
However, when I turn it up to 500 (83mhz fsb) system freezes in Win98 within 5 minutes. I've tried voltages from 2.0, 2.05, 2.1, 2.2, all with same result. My AGP is turn down to 2/3. And temperature never reached higher than 34C and it freezes. The weird thing is it boots into win98 fine. I can use it for about 5 mins and then freezes. Temp reading at that time is below 35C.
Can it still be a cooling problem when I can hit 450 at a higher temperature? I read in another post that HD might be a cause, how can I check that? Should I burn in the chip at 2.2v for a while even if the system crash just to let it get used to it?
Here's the current specs:
C400 @ 450
bh6 at 2.0v temp monitored between 29C to 38C
128 meg PC100 cas 2 ram
16 meg agp diamond monster fusion
Zoom 56k modem internal
cpu heatsink with dual fan
front and side case fans in Inwin 500a case
WD 10.2g caviar ata66 HD @ 5400 rpm
Any comments or suggestions you may have are wellcomed.
If I can't get it to 500 stable, I'm still quite satisfied at 450. Just wanted to give it a shot.
