    C466 with slocket on LX mainboard

    Hello

    I bought a Celeron 466 (PPGA) with a slocket to use with my mainboard ABIT
    AH6 (LX). But I have two problems.

    1. When I use this ÁP @466MHz (7x66), my PC freezes after some minutes and
    faster when I use games (FS98, CFS, Falcon 4...). I had a PII 266 o/c 300
    and all was OK except the for the performance. When I try to overclock at
    525MHz (7x75MHz) of course it freezes more again.

    2. When I try to overclock at 525MHz (7x75MHz), the boot sequence runs
    normally until after the IDE detection. Here's what I get :

    Celeron at 525MHz
    Memeory test 131072k OK

    (IDE)
    (IDE)
    (IDE)
    (IDE)

    CPU is unworkable or has been changed. Please Recheck - CPU Soft Menu

    <F1> or <Del>

    So I press F1 and the boot goes on.
    For the next boot I have to reset the parameters of CPU soft Menu to keep
    525MHz

    My config :
    -Celeron 466 (SL3EH - 08/99 - from Malay)
    -Slocket (cheap $12) ? I think it's a Jetway, the marking seems to be like
    photo I saw of this brand.
    -Abit AH6 last BIOS (for celeron 466), 128M SDRAM
    -HDD IBM 10.1G 7200t
    -ATI Rage 128 32M
    -Guillemot Maxi Home Studio 2
    -DVD Pioneer 103S
    -Yamaha 4416
    -Win98

    Can you confirm my slocket is not as good as it must be ? Which model allow
    overclocking (7x75) ? I though ASUS or MSI 6905 models.
    Thanks for your help.

    I've returned my Pc and they change adaptator and processor. the new slocket seems to be an ABIT model RS370, but i saw on the web that this isn't from ABIT ?????

    At 466MHz everything seems to run OK, but at 525MHz I've always the problem...
