ocerclocking a Asus p5a
I had a quetion on over clocking.
I have a AMD K6-2 2/300 mhz with a Asus P5a and I wanted to over clock it , do you know what the specifications are
or where i might find them. Also what do you think of your p5a board do you like it?
I recently upgraded it from the FIC VA 503+ board witch I think was a better board but i think it might
be because i have not overclocked this board.
I have 3 of those boards or at least similiar ones,a 2 are p5a s,one is a p5ab , form is at on 2 ,atx on 1
The kids have 2 of them , they run a 500 and 400 amd on them.
I have a 450 mhz on another that I play with, never had a problem but I havent overclocked them either......
I WAS THINKING OF GETTING A BIGGER CPU ON THE
DO U PLAY VIDEO GAMES HOW IS THE PERFORMANCE I AM DEBATING WHETHER TO PUT ANY MORE MONEY INTO THIS BOARD NOT SURE IF I LIKE IT ALTHO I HAVE HEARD SOME GOOD REVIEWS ON IT.
HEY DID YOU DO ANY UPDATES ON THE BIOS ON THE ATX BOARD
None of ours are overclocked. When I say "play" I don't really play games per se, more play like try out programs , mess with mp3s, surf, do some small business stuff.
The atx board has the latest bios and came that way, I think I have updated the bios on mine (at form) ,sons (atx didnt need it)
but maybe not daughters.
As far as faster cpu, I think the fastest they will take is a 500 or 550 mhz, depending on what you want to do might be better to upgrade as cheap as stuff gets so fast.
I have a 550 K6-2 on a P5A using BIOS 1007.a
People play games on it often.
One thing though, the board's regulators are not state of the art, so if you benchmark your CPU and it performs lower than it's supposed to, up the voltage by 0.1V. I had to do this when I had a K6-III.
