    Gigabyte mainboard & overclocking an AMD

    Is anyone familiar with the Gigabyte GA-5AX mobo? A friend of mine just purchased one and is going to put an AMD K62/400 on it. Is this a good board? Will it overclock? Would appreciate any info as I don't know much about Gigabyte boards. Thanks in advance for the info!!!

    I have a GA-5AX rev4.1 mobo with a K6-III-450 running at 518MHz. I think it's a really nice board. I know it overclocks well with the K6-2 and K6-III cpu. For your friend's K6-2-400, I would try 440MHz (4.0 x 110fsb) or 473Mhz (4.5 x 105fsb). You should try a cpu voltage range between stock or a .1 or .2 volt increase. Good luck.
