How much voltage can a k6-2 take?
I have been able to clock my k62-333 to 400Mhz while staying a 2.2v. I can make 428 with 2.4 or 2.5 (i forget). 450 is doable but takes 2.7 and is a little uh quircky. Is 2.8 still sane? Chip is pretty cool even at 2.7 (fair bit of cooling here).
Even 2.7 is quite dangerous for your chip, unless your using some good cooling such as a peltier, or other super cooling device. I've heard of people going all the way up to 3.0v with MAJOR cooling (though I would never in my right mind do that). I would say anything above 2.5 is really pushing it, and you really shouldn't go higher than that unless you truely know what your doing. No sense in trying for a little gain and damaging your chip eh? [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
I ran a K6-2 400 all the way up to 3.2v core using a water cooler that keeps the temp at just a few degrees above room temperature. 500mhz was the best I could get and it runs stable at 2.9v but will run 2.7 if the water temp is 50F.
Edited note: Keep in mind that I fully take responsibility for the loss of my chip if I FRY it.

Thanks for the posts, I was just looking for some numbers. I take full responsibility for my actions. I'm going to push it any ways, blow the chip so I'm out like $40. Although I will look into some serious cooling. I read cmonsters post for the 500MHz run, and I've got a few ideas.
