Overclocking Survey Results
On 28-Aug-00, Jim reported that, on the Unlisted Mainboard Mainboard, they were able to overclock the 350MHz AMD K6-III up to 473MHz, with a stability rating of 10 out of 10
  • This is what he said of the system's cooling properties:   "K6-III 350 2.2V version with GlobalWin FOP32 heatsink/fan open case"
He Also left the following remarks:   "This is an AWESOME CHIP!!!! I never would've thought in my life a socket 7 chip could overclock this good! I am currently giving this chip 2.5V and it runs at 473 mhz 105fsb*5 stable, (used programs to check). I got it at tigerdirect, and I only expected to get 400 mhz. It's much faster than my k6-2 500@550, especially in games. I believe since AMD quit making K6-3s, I believe they marked the leftovers at lower MHZ to suit demands, because it will run at 450 if kept cool without raising the voltage!!! Please Email me at Studmuffin868@aol.com, or Wow032@aol.com if you have any questions."

On 28-Aug-00, Frans reported that, on the Unlisted Mainboard Mainboard, they were able to overclock the 150MHz Cyrix 6x86 up to 200MHz, with a stability rating of 10 out of 10
  • This is what he said of the system's cooling properties:   "Epox MVP3C2. 64 MB PC 100 2 CLK. Standard cooling og voltage. No extra fans for cabinet."
He Also left the following remarks:   "Cyrix 6x86L PR 150+ (120mhz core) runs stable on this Epox motherboard at 2x75 (PR200+) also on my old QDI Titanium Pentium motherboard. The CPU also runs at PR210+ (2x83) at higher voltage, but are too much unstable for me. It didn't boot at 2x95 (PR235+) or 3x60. I believe the CPU will boot at 2,5X60 and maybe 2,5x66 but due to the lack of L2 cache it better with 2x75. I'm looking for buying one AMD K6-2 500 or 550 processor, AMD K6-3 450 or AMD K6-2+. "

On 21-Aug-00, Jestah reported that, on the Unlisted Mainboard Mainboard, they were able to overclock the 500MHz Intel PIII 100MHz FSB up to 585MHz, with a stability rating of 10 out of 10
  • This is what he said of the system's cooling properties:   "clip on fan 2 speed"
He Also left the following remarks:   "I got an Aopen AX63pro and in the bios i can take the fsb to 124Mhz, bringing the clock to 602Mhz. But in Win2000 it wont start up, bluescreen!! Ive seen 550's at 733, but whatz the highest i can take the 500? wanna know! Or if a celeron 566fcpga is better cuz i got one of those too!!"

On 17-Aug-00, Oliver reported that, on the Tyan S1590S Mainboard, they were able to overclock the 333MHz AMD K6-III up to 500MHz, with a stability rating of 10 out of 10
  • This is what he said of the system's cooling properties:   "Big Fan/Heatsink combo with thermal grease. Home made watercooler for the CPU, cools down to 9 degrees c. One blower for exhaust, and two fans blowing inside. 5x100=500. core voltage default=2.7 volts from 2.2v default."
He Also left the following remarks:   "Completely stable, runs very well. 128 mb pc100 ram. AMD K6-3 333 mhz 95x3.5=333, i raised the fsb to 100 no problems, and set the multiplier to 5! very stable, could run q3 demo the whole day looping at highest quality."

On 16-Aug-00, Chris reported that, on the Soltek SL-54U5 Mainboard, they were able to overclock the 500MHz AMD K6-2 up to 560MHz, with a stability rating of 8 out of 10
  • This is what he said of the system's cooling properties:   "124 x 4.5 = 560, plus a huge heatsink originally for a pentium w/o a fan, with a huge fan on it. core voltage 2.4v"
He Also left the following remarks:   "Biggest problem is I don't think my modem likes the 124 / 3, but everything works fine, cheap PC-100 rams works fine here. Also the 124 x 4 for a 500mhz rating only overclocking my system board without overclocking my processor. work good also."

On 13-Aug-00, Laf reported that, on the Soyo SY-6BA+IV Mainboard, they were able to overclock the 566MHz Intel PIII FC-PGA up to 850MHz, with a stability rating of 10 out of 10
