    How fast will the AMD K6-2 450 overclock to?

    I am currently building an AMD K6-2 450 machine using a DFI K6XV3+ mobo rev. AA+. Does anyone know if this set-up will run at 500 Mhz and be stable?

    I am running my K6-2/450 @504Mhz,(4.5x112),2.8V;on an FIC VA-503+ MB.
    I used to have a 350 which was easy to o/c to 448/450,but I have found the 450 to be an absolute #*!#! to overclock.
    To cut a (to long) story down,it all came mainly down to cooling,(cover off,themal- paste,huge fan/heatsink combo and I put a large chassy fan 2" in front of the cpu fan,(this really helped).Buggered if I could run at any less than 2.8 Volts & buggered if I could bothered making a water cooler.(Don't have to )!!!
    CYA.....

    I too have a K6-2 450@504 2.8 volts,... Temp is 38.c with 3 case fans, a blower fan blowing under the mb where the chip is, and thermal goop. I was really unconfortable with the 2.8 core voltage at first, but its been fine now for a month.. I hope it holds up untill the .18 micron K6+'s hit the shelves...

    from 2.2v to 2.8v is crazy. I wouldn't risk it. I have a k6-2 450 too. It didn't work when I OC'd it too 500@2.3v, so I just stopped it there. but my k6-2 350 worked fine going to 400@2.3 volts

    I used to have a 450@550(110x5.5) on 2.4v using a GOrb. I'll also say that it did 578 (105x5.5) stable on 2.5v, but ran a little hot than I would like

    Virtally all will hit 500MHz most will do up to 525MHz.

    Hah, Hah!!! Man, this thread is old!
    My 450 made it to 500 with 2.8v, but I sold it about 3 month's ago! It is still running great at 450mhz now on a Gigabyte mobo retired to surfing w/AOL and playing a retired couple gambling games!

    Other K6/x that I've played with:

    AMD K6/3-350@460 - 2.7v
    AMD K6/2-550@600 - 2.7v
    AMD K6/2-500@600 - 2.9v

    LOL, the 2.9v 500 is running good on the K6XV3+ DFI mobo. It's running cool also due to (4) 80mm Sunon HO fans blowhole style! Sooner or later the 2.9v is gonna kill it, but I'm having fun seeing how long it last! I may bump it to 3.0v and see what happens!
