I am using a PC
Chips motherboard, with a maximum FSB
speed of 83MHz. Hence, I can't use an AMD
K6-2 400 etc. (i.e. 4x100MHz)
Is this true? Wouldn't it be possible to downgrade the FSB speed of a K6-2,
so that I could use it on my motherboard?
My board will easily run up to 450Mhz. I am currently using a Cyrix
PR333+ chip at 3.5x75MHz, and have found that I can over-clock this baby
to 4.0x75Mhz to a clock speed of 300Mhz. The Sisoft
Sandra benchmarking software states that my chip is now a 366+, and
apart from the old/rubbish EDO
RAM causing problems, I ran at this speed for quite a while with NO
crashes (I have an additional case fan AND an exhaust blower).
I hope this latter point helps anybody thinking of tinkering about with
