those chips usually had very little overhead for overclocking. My K6-2 533 will only reach 550 stable. Try using a slightly better cooler if you have one laying around, but I wouldn't invest money in a new one.

You can also raise the Vcore slightly but I mean slightly .... it doesn't take much to fry those chips! Also... a big cause for them not overclocking well is that big chunck of aluminum on there, it doesn't let the core be cooled really well. IF you are not worried about scrapping the chip you can remove the cap and it will look just like an athlon/duron chip and allow for better cooling. Just search around for a guide, its not really hard, its only glued on at the corners, you just have to be really careful not to slip.
