Is it safe to run my 350 at 400 mhz without any extra cooling. Could I possibly jump to 466 safely. What are the best fans for cooling the chip. I am overclocking with soft fsb on a biostar mobo
I used to own one of those.
Ran it @392 (fsb 112). But my PC100 didnt let me use the next fsb step (which was 133, had a crappy mobo back then). It always ran pretty warm (around 40 degrees C), but the temp didn't go up above 40 either. Never had a stability problem with it. Just try, and see if your RAM will allow it. Problem with those cpu's is that their internal multiplier is kinda low (x3.5), so they run at a pretty high fsb in default (100mhz). So harddrives and other stuff could start complaining already after a "small" increase in speed.
I have Asus P2B-F, and PII350MHz.
My overclocking is 124MHzX3.5=434MHz
After two month the sistem works fine.
Controller SCSI AHA2940UW
IBM SCSI HD

I have changed down the memory bios parameter,
but the system are stable and work quicky.
If you can open the PC and read the numbers
on your memory module in this manner you can
untherstand if you can works at high FSB
speed.For example my memory and SCSI controller
can't works up
to 124MHz FSB. I don't use extra cooling
thanks for the responses,
another question though. I use soft fsb for my overclocking, but I have to set it everytime I start my computer. is that the way this program is sposed to work, or am i doing something wrong????
I have changed the settings from the MB
FS jumper,I have tried to use SoftSFB
but on my system do not works (computer hangs
and I must reset it).
I think that you must run the program every time your system start, because is a software
program that works with the bios settings
that are resident in RAM after the boot.
I don't known your MB but I think that you
can change the BIOS SFB, in this manner the
setting remain alwais set at every boot.
