Does a K62500 -> 550 need special cooling?
Right now I am running a k6-2 300 @ 350mhz on a matsonic 6260s motherboard. I purchased a k6-2 500mhz chip for 65$ (including shipping...is that a good deal by the way?), and am going to pop it into the motherboard.
The matsonic is 100mhz FSB and has a 5.5x multiplier setting.
Can I just take the existing heatsink/fan off my 300mhz chip and pop it onthe 500mhz chip and overclock it to 550 with the same success I've had with my present o/c situation?
Thanks ever so much for any help.
I wouldn't...U definately need more cooling if u want to OC that K6-2 500, atleast apply heatsink grease on top of the processor, then place the heatsink on top.
Also, if u can, get a Dual fan setup on ur processor, or a Peltier if u have the extra cash. I'd add another case fan (3" X 3"), too, if there's enough room.
I should be getting my K6-2 500 any second now, I'm doin the same OC, so I'll let u know more...
K6-2 runs at 100Mhz FBS(default 97Mhz), uses 25m technology, and runs at 2.2v
I am suprised they don't lock up at 100Mhz without additional cooling.
try it and see how it goes...i bet it will work at stock settings and maybe even at a 5.5x multiplier. my k6-2 400 will boot and run at 2.7v and is rock solid, when using a generic heatsink i could get to 475, now i am working on 496...and i was even able to run at 2.0 volts at stock settings...
i think you will be able to get a little out of it, but might have to consider more cooling if you want to push it.
