Look at the heatsink from the orginal P3. It is the exact same as the one that come with the coppermine. If it can handle 2.0v, it can handle kicking the voltage up to maybe 1.75, or, I had mine at 1.8.
I think so too/ In general that is,... I think we ALL expect the max out of every chip, But I do agreee with TN, I think that near always the Lower Multiplier for a given series of chip, will produce the highest yeild.
Help me get this Boot outta my azz!!!!
I just took the cover off of my P3 600E with the cB0 stepping like ten minutes ago and let me tell you it requires a lot more pressure than that article mentions to pop those pins out. I had to bare almost all my weight on it to get them to come out. And you will here a very loud crack. I almost **** my pants because I thought I had broken the thing in half. But all should be ok. So be prepared to use lots of force and hear a loud cracking sound.
The cool thing is if you want to RMA it you can put retail HS/F back on... or at least I did with the help of a hammer to get the pins back in. And yes, I went numb when I heard those loud cracking sounds. I thought I shattered the chip. After all, I put all of my weight on it.
Well I am a little happier now. I removed the cover and put on my global win VS504 and am running at 930 air cooled stable at 1.7v. Idle temps are 25c as compared to 38c. I am going to let it burn in a little here then up it a little bit and see what it will do. It will run at 975 but is really flaky. I don't know if voltage will help we'll see.
Thanks for all the replies....I read them a little too late and already cut the pins on the inside to get it off. Luckily, I have another retail if anything goes wrong I can just use it.
