    HELP!!!. my amdk62-450 overheats after 300mghz

    i am running windows 98
    my amdk62 450 is in an asus motherboard
    it is all brand new.
    when i jumper the cpu up higher than 300 mghz
    it overheats.
    i have the proper fan for it as a friend of mine has the same chip and fan and he has no problems ...can someone please tell me how i might fix this problem??????

    my voltage is set to 2.4 volts
    i dont have compound on the heatsink but it is clipped on really good
    also when i first bought the board and processor i got a dud board .. it didnt work..now when i brought it back they replaced the board but gave me back the same chip.. im wondering if mabe by putting my chip in the dud board might have done something to it? one more question.. what would a normal temperature be for this chip
    to be running at? when i have it jumped up to 450mghz it starts beeping when the temperature reaches 66degrees c...thanks for all the help..

    make sure there isn't any Quality control stickers on the chip..... I've found it many a time some dip-**** technician sticks the QC-pass little red round sticker slap onto where the thermal past should go and then put the heatsink back onto it....

    sound like you got a remarked chip to me.. clock it to 300 and get a prog named. wcpuid. it'll tell you what kind of chip you have. K6- K6-2 and what stepping it is and the speed of it also. it'll be like yadayada. k6-2 300-500. or something of the nature.. or go to amd website and DL there amdchipid.

    Hi, you don't say anything about type of
    cooler installed. Are you sure your cooler is compatible with AMD K6-2 450 ?
    Many "low end" coolers do not have adequate
    cooling capacity to handle the "hottest"
    AMD's. This one is at 28.4 Watts !! Max temp
    is 65 deg. C. Normal temperature depends on
    ambient but should not exceed 59 deg. at
    ambient 40 deg. C. But again that depends
    on if you have selected a proper cooler.
    I use myselves a die cast high performance COFAN KC-400 unit provided by www.computer-cooling.com

    I am having a similar (if not same) problem with my AMD K6-III. It's burning at 60.5c. I have an Enlight case with a case fan at the bottom front, and a fan and sink for my CPU. Let me know what you find out!
