Ho Ho Ho... My Socket super 7 soyo mobo, 5ehm, with the intel P I 233mhz oced up to 2.5X100mhz=250mhz machine just have a new fresh power. I bought an AMD K6 2+ 450mhz, push it up to 5x100mhz then zoom up to 5.5x100mhz=550mhz at no time at all. I thought I would crap out my legacy system just for the new 1G mania but well... for $40 K6 2+ 450 this new fresh system of mine is speedy enough to make me please in most situations while I keep Ocing others CPUs... Well... Socket7... lives forever... Ho Ho Ho... I just wish that I can make it to 600mhz but .... hell with it... I am so please...

Well, first, it is the later generation K 6 2+ and it has no problem with stability at all... I started updating with the latest bios from Soyo then set up with 450mz then 500mhz then 550mhz... never crash... not even one time. The onlything is it can't stand 600mhz. This is much better than Intel P I 2.5X100mhz. I am pretty happy but would be more please if I can make it to 600mhz. Anyhow I know I can not have everything I want. After this first AMD, I will have another Tbird soon. Bravo AMD... I never use AMD before

Good job!

Next you might want to try setting the multiplier at 2X. From what I understand, AMD changed the CPU to recognize this as 6X. I've done this several times myself with K6III+. My experience has shown that it says 556MHz during the POST, but tests will confirm the actual CPU speed as 600MHz. You will probably have to bump the voltage a bit, maybe to 2.2 or so.

What type of fan/cooling system you have on your CPU? How many fans you have on your case?

In that particular box I don't have anything special. I have two 80mm case fans, one blowing in the front over the stock hsf and the other one exhausting warm air out the rear of the case.

I have the core voltage bumped only to 2.1V.

This combo has been running great until I was playing around in there changing RAM and must have shorted something out.

I liked it so much that I ordered another motherboard, flashed the BIOS right off and have it back where it was.

Now I'm going to try my hand at an ASUS A7V133. I have to love those DURON 600's. I currently have one running at 1050 on an A7V.

Hi Frank; I have a new system with Tbird 700mhz and Iwill KK226 Mobo. But the mobo
does have problem with multiplier. It is the well known VERSION 1.2 though. I will return the mobo, instead of RMA, and get another Motherboard. How do you like the Asus A7V133??? I might get that mobo and your idea is greatly appreciated. Will try to make the K6 2+ 450 at 600mhz soon after burning in for a while :)
