overclocking to 450 (2.3 volt) is no problem
overclocking to 475 is possible at 2.4 volt but i have windows acces violations, means can't lounch windows, but by then the com. boot without any problems.
by overcklocking to 500 at 2.6 v i have the same problem.

what can i do now ?

Put the clock rate up to 800MHz and the voltage up to 3.5V, leave it there for 2 days or until you smell smoke. Then throw your computer in the bin, buy a new one and don't try to overclock it more than you should.

</sarcasm>, however if your computer isn't stable at 475 what makes you think it'll work at 500? Sounds to me like you're pretty close to doing the above as it is. Leave it at 450 and be happy with it, or buy some mother of a big heatsink and fan, add a peltier if necessary and try and get it stable at 475.

try to build yourself a watercooler. lots of sites are around here with topic watercooling. don't do it only for your k6-2,
imagine what it will allow you when you should get this amazing k7 how i will do.
only as a little example: with cold water i got my k6-2 350 up to 500!!! im not joking
but @ 2,9V but it's only 1degree celsius so i think Voltage is ok

Mine runs stable at 450MHZ at 2.3V and upto 472.5 4.5*105MHZ. I am only able to run 500MHZ at safe mode. I can launch any programs though.... Sisoft multimedia score is higher than PIII 500. I have Compaq OEM mobo with 400MHZ AMD II. I am receiving alpha cooler in 2 days so I will test to see if I can hit 500MHZ stable. Oh it is at 2.8V. Pretty high..... compaq mobo only has 2.3v 2.8v 2.9v 3.Xv......

Jokes aside, I don't recommend overclocking for AMD K6-2 series processors, at any speed, I've reliable source. Earlier,
3 mths ago, I tried to overclock my AMD K6-2
300 to 333.It booted up with 333 Mhz but from
thereon it was unstable & freezes every 15 minutes or less.Don't let anybody tell you that extra cooling will solve it, cos your chip's life will be short, that is if you intend to donate to the Salvation Army for
parts & buy a new one.

Hope that helps

How long are you going to use your computer? My P200 MMX lasted only about a year with me.... and I am sure next year around this time I will get a new computer. It will only shorten the life of CPU a little. They usually last around 10 years or more(depending on your usage). I think even 5 years will be more than enough. Think about you using 486 computer that came out 5 years ago...... how much do they cost now? Even 300MHZ AMD cost less than $40 now.

I am happy with my computer running at 450MHZ oc rock solid.......

I have a K6ii 380 runnign at 430 (4.5*95) by in creasing the voltage to 2.2, and it has been doing the [email protected] thing 18hours+ a day for teh lst 3 weeks - not a single crash.

I would go futher but the friend who I am borrowin gthe process or from is (understandably) anti-voltage increases.

I rekon, if the processor was mine it would go to 450 of 475, and maby loose a couple of years operating life.:)

As for voltage increases, well I have run an IBM MII @3.6v (up from 2.8) for 6 months, sold it on and it is still going.
