    pII 350 overclocking

    Hey everyone,
    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.

    Hi,
    I have Asus P2B-F, and PII350MHz.
    My overclocking is 124MHzX3.5=434MHz
    After two month the sistem works fine.
    I have
    Velocity4400
    Controller SCSI AHA2940UW
    IBM SCSI HD
    VikingII HD
    CD-RW Yamaha4416s
    SBLive! full
    PCTV Tuner Pynnacle
    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

    I have changed the settings from the MB
    FS jumper,I have tried to use SoftSFB
    http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA002374/nrklv/e/sfsb.html
    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.
