    Athlon 500 on ASUS K7M rev 1.04, BIOS 1007 (Nov 1999) at 756/770Mhz using Air-cooling.

    756: Stable in Win98, WinNT4, LINUX, Solaris.
    770: Stable in NT4, Solaris

    At 756 CPU Temp: 37.6
    At 770 CPU Temp: 38.3

    Both temps under full load. I dont know what the idle temp is, because its not relevant (if you cant run your system at 100% load all the time its not stable) and my machine is always doing things.
    Besides, I didnt OC my CPU for it to be idle.

    With an Athlon 600mhz on a K7M with 1008 bios I was able to get to 690 with just the stock fan and a single case fan. I ordered this fan from RDJD

    With it and a slot exhaust fan, I'm hoping to oc to 750mhz. Wish me luck.

    Athlon 550@750 with multiplier adjusted only. The only problem I am having is the power supply overheating. I am using antec p303 which is AMD Athlon approved but I have 9 fans in the case and I think the two 80mm exhaust are fighting with the PSU fan for air causing hot air to sit in the PSU. The processor is O'clocked by Step but I wish I had a stock and a goldfinger after the trouble I went through with them. They did however upgrade the ram from 256 megs of 133 to 256 megs 150. I wish I knew the ns of the ram. There are details about the problems I had and more information about the system on my signature site.

    What do you need 9 case fans for???

    If you need so many, you have a really poorly designed case - or your fans are causing negative pressure at certains points which will cause air to sit in certain places and warm up.

    I found its better to firce more air through the PSU than to have several exhaust fans - with the exception of Big or server towers - where there is one exhaust for the mainboard area and one for the HDD area - then its good to have two exhaust fans.

    Otherwise one fan blowing in and one blowing out (into the PSU, with the PSU fan blowing out) is more than enough.
    If your PSU blows air in, then have one good fan blowing out and the front-bottom - and if you can, turn the PSU fan around so it blows out.

    I've got a K7 600 on a K7M I'm trying to get to operate at 600 without overheating. It works great until the CPU heats up. I need a better case for air circulation, a better 250W PS, and I'm going to try making some cache spacers for better cooling.
