    !!! AMD K6-2 500 !!!

    Hi,

    I have just bought a Gigabyte GA-5AX mothboard, and an AMD K6-2 500. My motherboard support 100MHz bus, and up to 6x multiplier.My current voltage is 2.4v.

    Is 600MHz ( ) possible, or 550MHz?
    I have a AVC 1 inch fan/heatsink.

    Thanks!

    Goto www.overclockers.com to check out there CPU overclocking database. See what it can do!

    If that fails, just have a go, it won't damage the chip, it'll just not boot and reset FSB foir the next boot. I seem to remember that board has no voltage tweaks, so you won't be able to blow the chip up like that either.

    With quality cooling I'd say most 500 MHz K6-2's ought to hit 550 with no problem. I'm running one in my sisters system with a Globalwin heatsink & fan (paid about $20 for it), some thermal paste and it's doing 550 @ 2.4v with zero problems. Never tried 600 but the success rate is slim. You'd probably have a lot better chances if you started out with a 550 core for that. Although if you give it enough voltage, it's possible. :-) (I wouldn't go over 2.6-2.7v with a K6-2 and even with those settings you'll need VERY good quality cooling)

    Try to use a higher bus speed rather than multiplier change. This will give you a far greater increase in performance that pure clock speed. For example, try 5x110=550Mhz which will be a lot faster than 5.5x100. You shouldn't need more than 2.4v to get to this speed assuming the std. voltage of your chip is 2.2v. You'll need very good cooling to make it to 600Mhz as K6-2's get very hot at this speed. If 550 is successfull, just increase the bus speed a bit more for a further increase in performance

    Good Luck, 600R

    Hi,

    Thanks everybody for your quick responses.

    If I change my clock frequency, won't I have problems with my RAM (PC100) and my PCI/AGP slots?
