My 400 is overclocked to 450 usin 4.5X100 at 2.5V. To run successfully I have to disable the L2 cache in the bios. Is there anyway around this? It seems to be very stable but i dont like this decrease in performance. Thanks
Do you have to run at 2.5v to stay stable? I have a K6-2 400 o/c'ed to 450 running on 2.3v ....it is very stable...try stepping down the voltage it may not help your cache problem but its a whole lot better for the CPU.
my k6-2 400 is stable at 450 (4.5 x 100) @2.3 v. However it's better to run them at 448 on a 112MHz bus if possible. Again, I can do it at 2.3v.
What type of motherboard do you have ? It seems strange that you have to turn your L2 cache off even though you haven't changed the bus speed. Unless the extra heat from the processor is transferring the the cache chip and affecting it or more likely it's to do with the voltage. Try 2.3v , not only from my results but from what I've read this is the way to go.
I redid some things and I can get it to run at 420 MHZ with the L2 cache enabled. Its at 2.3V at 4X105. Could it be that im just not getting good cooling that it wont work. My asus temp stats say that im at 40 degrees. What do you think?
