    BH6 Rev 1.01, Celery II 566 @ 850 1.65v But want higher Help!!

    heres my problem my BH6 will only lt me go up to 1.75 volts in the bios (latest bios supporting all celery II;s and p3's) im running my celeron II 566 @ 875 (Turbo) right now at 1.65 volts (good chip), i tried 952 112x8.5 but at 1.75 volts it gets to windows and loads all the icons but then locks up, golden orb is cool to touch so its a lack of voltage I think. How do I set the slotkey to overide the bios and give me higher voltages or is there something I can do in the bios? One thing that sucks is that the BH6 does not have the chip that allows you to monitor the CPU temp wish there was a way around that

    Set your voltage to 1.7v, then flash the BIOS again. That will raise the max by .2v to 1.9v. If that's not enough, set it to 1.9v then flash again to get 2.1v max. Don't cook your CPU. Also, at 112 (and a fixed PCI divisor of 3), you're overclocking other peripherals as well.

    So I guess with the BH6 im limited in my overclocking choices since the only FSB's offered are 75, 85, 100, 112, 124, and 133. A friend of mine is giving me a BE6, he says that would give me better choices, is that true?

    Yes, the BH6 is limited because the PCI divisor is fixed at 3. The later ABIT boards let you choose a divisor to keep the PCI bus speed as close to 33 as possible.

    I have the same setup as yours, and my RAM is only PC100, so I settled for 566 @ 850. Still, a lot better than my old Cel 300A @ 450.
