C2 566 @ 850 1.5v
As we speak..
This is an OEM I found at http://www.spartantech.com/ using pricewatch
Abit BF6 with Abit Slotket III..
Just cranked her up so I haven't done any tweaking or benching yet ...
Since BF6 does not have 8.5 multiplier, CPUID says FSB is 189 and mult is 4.5...
I will be bumping her up to see where she stalls and let you know...
Looks like the 300a and 366a are going to have to pass the helm to the 566e...

Awesome... let us know how it goes. The thing thats bugging me about the C2's is that 66mhz fsb thing, and the multiplier being so big. Bastards!!! Why couldnt they have just made it 100mhz fsb... hehe.
Anyways, keep me informed cause I may wanna buy one for future overclocking projects and just put it in my safe.
Long Live The BP6!

I was worried about the high multipliers on them too cause my MB only goes to 8.0, but it seems it will work anyway, I'm glad the Celermines are 66mhz buss, easier to OC and dont have to buy PC-133 ram.

Wow that mean that it should go happily on my BE6-2, what does the BIOS say at start up when at 566????

BF6 with latest BIOS reports:
Pentium III, 566
I believe that BE6-2 has essentially same BIOS with support for HPT366 added ..

They have identical BIOS's, in fact the boards are basically identical. This is great news, I'm definately going to get one of these.
