What is adequate cooling to run a K6-2 400 at 500?
I don't have a temp monitor, so I'm kinda winging it. I am currently at 95*5 2.6v and stable running SETI. The exhaust is warm, so I just wanna know what you guys think before i attempt to fry my CPU.
Go to Radio Shack and get an indoor/ outdoor tthermometer to fit into the fins of your heat sink. Make sure your HS will accomodate it first of course. maybe take your HS in with you and try it out. That is what I did with my K6-2 400. I ran it at default speed and w/o RC5 (or SETI for you) and then go from there to determine your relatiive temp.
2.7v is considered DANGER ZONE for K6's, so take some extra cooling measures. For example, extra case fans etc. I'm just using one 80mm radio shack **** fan (placed on stilts blowing up from the bottom of the case) and I made a side panel from a furnace filter. Cheap but effective.
Run it at your present setting for a week to burn it in. Then see if you can hit 500 at the same core voltage.
If you get a temp monitor, I have a chart of K6 ratings.
I have a global win FOP-32++ sitting on my K6-III 450 @ 504(112x4.5) 2.6v and it is very stable, I just got finnished moding my case today and dremeling in some holes for fannage. I am very pleased with the outcome. you can see here http://www.geocities.com/sniperhoss/casefans.jpg .
also, I would suggest what dave said, you need some sort of temp monitor so you wont roast the CPU.
Nice case mod. Did you use the dremel to cut the holes? What kind of bit?
