    Question of overclocking a PIII 600

    Hi all, Iím pretty new to the overclocking scene but I guess itís never too late to start. Iíve read most of the posts over the last 3 weeks or so and feel relatively confident to start, I was just wondering if someone could give me some pointers.

    Iíve got a PIII Ė600 512k(not cumine), an FIC KA-6110 mobo (with settings of up to 140Mhz fsb), 128meg pc100 RAM, matrox millennium g400max, sblive, and I just ordered a Global Win VOS32 to cool it down.
    Iím running it at 110 FSB at the moment with no cooling (660 Mhz) and it seems stable (well as stable as windows 98 is!!!)
    How high can I realistically crank the chip when the new cooler arrives?

    Thanks for any input!
    Cheers,
    Ken

    What are your fsb settings between 110 and 140?

    It has 112, 115, 118, 124, 133, 140 FSB settings (in the BIOS)you set pins on the motherboard for the multiplier.

    :-)

    I use the intel processor identifier to check the frequency (because I love to see it freak out!) but it always different. ie - The FSB is set to 112 in the BIOS but the intel program says it's 110. Hmm...

    You could probably hit 118mhz fsb. Some persons get lucky and go above 133mhz!
