I want to overclock an AMD K-6 233Mhz in my IBM Aptiva to about 266 or 300Mhz. The PC runs fine now...but when I open Powerpoint 2000 (I installed) it goes away in about 2-10 seconds and I can't do anything. The processor still has the original HS/F on it. And also the same powdery type substance (I'm guessing it's a cooler...) on it. Also will the method work on my Compaq AMD Athlon XP..that is set to 1.52 Ghz instead of 1.53Ghz? I want to increase it a little with out destroying it or having to change the core voltage...

Basically what you're saying is that Powerpoint stops running after a small amount of time. If that is in fact the case, it has very little, if anything, to do with the clock speed of the CPU. It sounds to me like you have a software glitch in either Powerpoint or the OS.

Do you have the manual or jumper setting for that board? If you do, then find which jumpers are needed to be set to up the FSB to 75 or 83MHz. That will give you your overclock.

As for the Compaq XP 1800+, what model number is it?

You cannot overclock the 8000Z model, the options for setting the multiplier and FSB have been removed from the BIOS. The BIOS simply detects the CPU and configures it appropriately.

DOH!!! I guess I'll have to make my own PC with an ABit motherboard.

The boneheads at Compaq merely mis-printed the number. It is most definitely a 1.53GHz Athlon XP1800+ 8)

On K6 or K6-2, a S370 or Sa heatsink really helps in overclocking. S7 heatsinks are not qualified to overclock K6. The large heatsinks with fan is only $1.99(before they sell out and you get one free bonus too) in Las Vegas, Computer surplus outlet. You will have fun soupping it up.

Powerpoint could be long enough in codes(but not the earlier free version) to cause an overheating situation.

atang1, there's no way that Powerpoint is going to cause an overheating problem within 10 seconds. It just wouldn't happen. :roll:
