Cyrix MII 333
Has anyone had much experience with this chip? How fast can it be overclocked? I am new to overclocking.
My mainboard is a Soyo 5EHM Super 7, with the ETEQ82C663 chipset. The CPU bus clock can be set at 66, 75, 83, 95, 100, 112 & 124 mhz and can be multiplied to 5.0.
Cyrix recommends 75 mhz bus at 3.5x, so if I am understanding this right, the CPU is running at 262.5 mhz (?).
I know the only way to do it is to just play around with different setting and see which one works. But clearly I don't want to do something like 124 mhz at 5.0x! Where would be a good place to start?
Also, I understand that the system can run unstable at certain bus speeds. I am currently having problems with freeze-ups and inadvertent rebooting. I thought it might be an overheating problem so I have ordered a cpu fan recommended for this chip.
I am new to a lot of this, any help would be appreciated.
