Hey rgwalt, I bought a 366a from a dealer on the net that was promised to go 550. Well it did but it locked in games like Quake and Unreal? So it was not stable at 550 at all. So I went to a local dealer and bought 2 366a's. One did 550 np the other does 605 np. And neither of the 2 I bought local were promised to overclock at all. So go figure, that is 2 out of three.
Well, i'm thinking of going the Celey 366 route. I'm going to try and buy locally so if I can't push the processor, I can trade it in for a new one. I have a feeling that I will have trouble taking a 500 to the 100 MHz FSB.
Ack!!! My molecule's have lost their cohesion... Quick, turn off that fan!
Tried to save myself but my self keeps slipping away...
Well rgwalt I think I was just very lucky with the two 366a's I bought localy. They are both very stable at 550 and 605, 2.0 volts. The one I got that was promised to go 550 is not even stable at any voltage and I tried and tried all the way up to 2.3v.
There is a place, AZZO.com that many here endorse. They have 366a's promised to 550 at 2.0 volts for $100? But now you can get a 500 for about $80. But to push the 500 much more is questionable?
I bought 2 retail 366's via internet. Best speed was 506, but they won't run together at that speed in a bp6, which is why I got two in the first place. I turned around and bought a guaranteed 550 @ 2.1v. It's not stable either. I'm 0 for 3 so far. I guess I'm just VERY unlucky
