AMD K6-2 350 3dNow-No Win98 load!

Postby KingArthur » Thu May 09, 2002 5:09 pm

I have a PA-2013 mb with the afforementioned processor. I can overclock it to 400mhz, and everything is cool until Windows starts to load. It gives me some sort of error message. Is there anyone who can help me :?: Thanks.

Try upping the core voltage and upgrade your heatsink/fan. :wink:

It would be interesting to compare date codes?

AMD had many steppings and many production lots. And had even 0.18 submicron lithography production of k6-2+ and k6-3+.

However, if you had seen as many k6-2 s I have; you would have some concept of speeds of k6-2 and production date codes.

1998 350AFR can do 100 mhz FSB but in genral hard to overclock above 400 mhz. Early 1999 350AFR can do 400+(416) mhz. Late 1999 such as weeks 46-50 can do 450-500 mhz and in general are the same as 2000 production. But the 2000 production has failures of I/O transistors. Otherwise, AMD started to produce 500-533 mhz k6-2. And I have run 500 mhz from 450 units k6-2. After year 2000, the k6-2+ and k6-3+ were produced by the 0.18 submicron lithography. But AMD specified too high a core voltage.

Latest 450 mhz k6-2 units advertized by Tigerdirect has core voltages 2.0 volts or lower. Maybe these new ones are made by 0.18 submicron lithography? If so, the speed could be upwards of 700 mhz? Most motherboards will have to be modified from the 2.2 volts to reach 1.7 core voltage.

Until we find out what is the new core voltage and multipliers, 6.0 x is still the barrier. Who knows?
