AMD K6 300 at 375?
I asked something like this about 2 years ago, but I can't remember the answer, and I couldn't find the original topic, so...
This has been bothering me, as my CPU (AMD K6 300) works fine at 343, but the next step is far, at 375, and it doesn't want to work.
Does it need more than 2.4 (the highest I can give) core volts?
Or is it even possible to get it to 375?
Forgot to mention, that it boots at 375, but can't load Windows.

What are your CPU and case temps like. My 500MHz now at 550 suffered of that and according to previous advices for this lot of CPU's 2.5 volts are more or less the normally!!! max. 2.6 or above can be applied with your responsibility and are not recommended. Note that K6-2s are not the + ones known to overclock easier.
Look around it before doing anything and if not satisfied simply change your CPU to a bigger one...
Well, as I said, I can't give more than 2.4 volts.
I don't know anything about any temps; old mobo.
Also, if I'd have enough money to buy a better CPU, why would I still use this AMD K6 300? ;/
I've only "upgraded" this comp for 4 times since I bought it about 4 years ago.
I bought... a new HD, a V3 2000 PCI, SB Live! Value (or SB Live! 1024 as this CD says) and a new CD-ROM drive.
I also have the K6 300Mhz and it is at 366Mhz (66x5.5) 2.5 volts. What MB do you have because you might have hidden core voltage settings.
I cannot run at 375Mhz (75x5) because of my chipset is SIS 5595, if I remember that right. The chipset timings are all wrong for the K6 at 75 and 83Mhz. The MB I have is the Chaintech 5SIM.
Well, the chipset is Intel Triton 430TX, or at least that's what Sandra says.
I don't know what mobo it is, if it's not that QDI P5I430TX/T1B that's under Extended Mainboard Data.
Too bad I don't have 5.5 multiplier :/
You might go to Overclockers.com and see results for o/cing your chip, with some giving details of voltage, cooling, etc. Good luck!
To find out what MB you have when the computer boots look down in the lower left corner of your monitor and write down the string of numbers and letters. Go to Wims Bios site and look it up. http://www.wimsbios.com/
Hint: Press pause when the numbers appear on the screen.
