C466 with slocket on LX mainboard



New Member

I bought a Celeron 466 (PPGA) with a slocket to use with my mainboard ABIT
AH6 (LX). But I have two problems.

1. When I use this µP @466MHz (7x66), my PC freezes after some minutes and
faster when I use games (FS98, CFS, Falcon 4...). I had a PII 266 o/c 300
and all was OK except the for the performance. When I try to overclock at
525MHz (7x75MHz) of course it freezes more again.

2. When I try to overclock at 525MHz (7x75MHz), the boot sequence runs
normally until after the IDE detection. Here's what I get :

Celeron at 525MHz
Memeory test 131072k OK


CPU is unworkable or has been changed. Please Recheck - CPU Soft Menu

<F1> or <Del>

So I press F1 and the boot goes on.
For the next boot I have to reset the parameters of CPU soft Menu to keep

My config :
-Celeron 466 (SL3EH - 08/99 - from Malay)
-Slocket (cheap $12) ? I think it's a Jetway, the marking seems to be like
photo I saw of this brand.
-Abit AH6 last BIOS (for celeron 466), 128M SDRAM
-HDD IBM 10.1G 7200t
-ATI Rage 128 32M
-Guillemot Maxi Home Studio 2
-DVD Pioneer 103S
-Yamaha 4416

Can you confirm my slocket is not as good as it must be ? Which model allow
overclocking (7x75) ? I though ASUS or MSI 6905 models.
Thanks for your help.

I've returned my Pc and they change adaptator and processor. the new slocket seems to be an ABIT model RS370, but i saw on the web that this isn't from ABIT ?????

At 466MHz everything seems to run OK, but at 525MHz I've always the problem...
